Hi fellow knots!!
I am trying to finalize my breakfast reception menu and could use some input / your great ideas!
We are getting married 10/6/12 on the patio at the Ghostbar for a sunrise wedding. Early I know!!
We estimate 30 to 40 guests; majority in their mid 20s to early 30s except our parents a few family friends.
We still want a fun reception even though it is early! Since, it will feel like vacation for all of us and the setting is a nightclub on the 55th floor I hope that will promote a more fun event.
I am looking for menu ideas that would aid in a good time and feel not so morning for everyone, so the drinking and dancing can still take place and be a blast!
No sit down meals, more of a cocktail affair!
I think I might have a basket sent to guests rooms for wake up call that include a red bull a note saying " It is mighty early as the clock strikes 6am! So as you are on your way to celebrate our BIG DAY, drink one of these to give you Wings!" Something cutesy....need to figure my note out. LOL
There will be coffee and juice awaiting guests as they arrive to the ceremony. Really cute with a personalized coffee cup sleeves and maybe a mini doughnut hole or something.
We have thought about mini breakfast items such as:
Chicken n Waffle Cone, Honey Ham Crepe, Mini Smoked Salmon Eclaire,
Duck Belini Pancake Stack
duck confit, spiced blueberry crme,
Mini Sausage and Egg Sandwich,
Chocolate covered Bacon Strips
enough said, Elvis French Toast Slider Nutella banana, powder sugar, Asparagus Tartlet, Sweet Potato Fries applewood bacon powder, espressomaple ketchup
We feel these still say breakfast is there away around this? I mean in your 20s you go on vacation start drinking at like 9am....but can't remember what we ate! I don't want to down play the elegance part of all of this I just don't want a boring reception. We are in Vegas!
So what are your ideas? What foods should we serve that would be great presentation, not feel so breakfast like that makes you want coffee instead of mimosas bloody Mary's or mojitos? It's mighty early but how can we make the event feel like its not breakfast time it's party time?
