Weddings have turned into a weekend-long affair of celebratory events. One special time, in particular, is the day after wedding gift opening brunch! Keep the celebration going! Who doesn’t love brunch and all of its glory? Mimosas, bloody mary bars, croissants, donuts – you can’t go wrong. Having a brunch after your big day is such a great way to thank all your friends and family for celebrating with you on your big day and especially for saying your goodbyes for those who came from out of town.
Just another excuse to have you and your partner’s loved ones in one room once again. While everyone brings their appetite for delicious boozy morning drinks, pancakes, sausage, and steamy bacon, it’s a great way to kick back and relax. We came up with some fun ideas and food for thought (literally) for hosting a fabulous morning after brunch!
Keep it casual! Having a time slot of 9:00 am – 11:30 am for guests to roll in and out to grab some OJ and breakfast goodies. It’s always a good idea to have a number estimate for how many people you should expect coming through. Ask for your invited guests to RSVP for the morning after gift opening brunch to manage costs!
Bloody Mary Bar! You can’t go wrong with having a Bloody Mary Bar and or a sweet mimosa/bellini bar filled with delicious accoutrements and different options for your guests. Cheers!
Serve something easy and hassle-free for your day after wedding gift opening brunch. Having an array of donuts and delicious bakery items, serving an egg bake or DIY waffle station is a great way to have a stress-free brunch.

Use your decorations from the night before especially your floral arrangements! There’s no need to spend more money on totally different decorations. And for the final addition for any perfect gift opening brunch is a hangover kit for your guests before they hit the road after a long night of celebrating!
