Breakfast Wedding Reception Ideas


Weddings can be held any time of the day, although the norm tends to be afternoon or evening events. Why not start the day as Mr. and Mrs. Newlyweds? Choose a breakfast wedding reception to save money on food, the location or other wedding vendors. You can also choose a breakfast reception just to be a bit different. Choosing to wed in the morning allows you to be more flexible in your traveling plans for the honeymoon as well. When you get married in the morning, it's only proper to offer a breakfast wedding reception.


  • Breakfast buffets might be the easiest way to handle a breakfast reception. Offer french toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, hash browns, tater tots, corned beef hash, bagels, muffins and a fruit bar. Consider stations where your guests can custom order omelets, crepes or pancakes. Having a buffet catered or simply booking a buffet restaurant are both easy options.

Simple, Inexpensive Ideas

  • Offer a simple breakfast of assorted tea, coffee, pastries, muffins and bagels. Fresh fruit will add color, texture and additional tasty options. This is simple, yet tasteful and will save money yet still offer more than just cake and punch for your guests.

    For small, casual weddings, consider taking your guests to your favorite inexpensive breakfast restaurant. This could be IHOP, Denny's or a local favorite.

Elegant, Elaborate Ideas

  • Full, made-to-order, sit-down breakfasts in elegant hotel restaurants or ballrooms can resemble the nicest evening receptions, only for breakfast. Offer oysters, ham and steak meals, crepes or your favorite breakfast meal.

    Serve breakfast on the finest china you can find. The presentation of basic, simple foods can look elaborate when served on fine dinnerware with glistening silverware.

    Use a Victorian theme to offer a tea and biscuit breakfast. Hosting the reception in a pretty garden or gazebo is a quaint option. Have a breakfast reception at a nice country club with large windows overlooking a lake or the greens.
