It’s the end of your wedding that is so awful! Post-wedding parties are a great way to say goodbye to family and friends, particularly if you’re going on vacation. Brunch is the perfect way to end your luxury hotel weekend, whether you are at a resort or vacation rental. These tips will help you get started.
1. Invite your wedding brunch
Couples limit their guests to the brunch. You can do this by limiting your guests to those who have stayed at the hotel one night before. Invites can be extended in many ways. You could attach a card of invitation to the gifts you receive at the hotel or hang them in your guestroom on dockable.
You can include this information in your wedding invitations if you choose to do so. However, don’t expect RSVPs for post-wedding brunch. The post-wedding breakfast is typically a relaxed affair. When deciding the timing of your meal, keep this in mind. Ideal brunch time is between 9:30am and 12:30am so guests can alternate or take turns before going home.
2. Brunch planning: assign someone to the task
The newlyweds will be expected to host the Brunch following their wedding, but it’s up to them whether they help out outside. The newlyweds may choose to share the responsibility with their parents, or they can hire a planner. While it’s exciting to have many parties over a weekend, you may find that you are overwhelmed if you do not have someone else to assist you.
You can walk to the turkey brunch in the morning following your wedding. The wedding planner can help you in all aspects of the planning, from the communication with venue and caterer through to early morning setup and the guest count.
3. Choose a place
You can choose a venue that is in your wedding hotel, or a home. You can work with an event planner on a website that lets you customize menus and decor.
Choose a place that’s convenient for your family and guests. Since most guests will stop on their way out of town, choose a location that is easily movable, either at hotels that you already have blocks at or at hotels that most guests stay at. Choose a place that accommodates at least 75% of all your guests, and not just the guests you expect.
