Wedding Receptions: Brunch Morning Wedding Reception

My fianc้ and I are planning on a morning reception, sort of a brunch type, from 9 to 11 am. I have many questions concerning the colors for this time of day. I had thought of using flowers such as lavender, daisies, wild flowers, and lots of greenery, baby's breath... but I wonder if that would look well. I am also in need of ideas for menus, and an itinerary for a wedding at that hour. We thought of having music played in the background while guests eat, talk, and we take our pictures. Please, I would be very grateful for any ideas and suggestions you can give me.

We are happy to help relieve some of the mystery and confusion in wedding planning if we can.  You don't mention what time the wedding will be, so I assume that it will be quite early. 

A few things are different at a brunch or a lunch reception than at one held later in the day.  People don't dance early in the day, so you don't need the expense of hiring a DJ unless you particularly want one.  You can also dispense with the first dances unless doing them is important to you.  If it is, that will be all the dancing that probably occurs.

In the morning, people don't drink either, except perhaps a champagne toast.  That saves you the cost of alcohol.

I agree that it would be a good idea to have music playing in the background while guests are eating and you are taking pictures.  You don't mention where the reception will be held.  If it will be at a restaurant or a facility that has background music, that is all you will need.  Otherwise, bring in a CD player and several CDs.

Your choice of flowers sounds lovely.  They will brighten up things nicely.

If you want to serve wedding cake, do so.  If cake isn't your thing, you might choose to serve another type of dessert more suited to the hour.  I had a wedding last year where the couple served German obst kuchen, a light sponge cake covered with a thin layer of sweetened cream cheese, then covered with sliced fruit.  Do you like cinnamon rolls? You might have a giant cinnamon roll made for you to cut for pictures, then serve.  You could have several large ones or one large one and many smaller ones.

For your menu, you might serve two or three varieties of quiche or frittata, mixed fruit salad, and muffins with coffee and juices to drink.

With only 2 hours, you won't be able to do many things, but you won't need to.  You can eat, then cut your cake or dessert and have it served, do toasts if you want to, then mingle with your guests until about 10:40 or 10:45.  Do your bouquet and garter toss at that time as a signal that things are coming to an end soon.  If you want to have guests blow bubbles as you leave, or toss rice, birdseed or flower petals (assuming that the facility allows it), that can be passed out to guests just before you leave.

It sounds like it will be a lovely time.  Congratulations!
