Hello! My reception is at 5:30 p.m. on a June Saturday. My fiance and I dig breakfast/brunch foods (we always have fun experimenting with it, make it a big production on weekends, etc.). I thought it would be fun to have those for our reception and I got a quote from the caterer for bacon/sausage/hash browns/assorted quiche/waffle station. I don't love cake, but a local "hip" (think maple/bacon and champagne/pop rocks) donut shop does mass orders, and though we want beer/wine, we could also have mimosas.
I was excited at the idea, but a brief survey has shown a lot of people think it might come across as cheap or just odd to have those foods in the evening. The brunch buffet isn't that much different price-wise from plated dinners for chicken, veggie, and beef. Not sure if it matters, but the venue is exposed brick/dark walls vibe, and we'll have dancing. It'll be around 150 people.
My fiance and I are paying, so I feel like I should just ignore the input, but also, I don't want people hungry or bummed out at what should be a celebration. I won't die if we have to serve chicken. Most negative input is from people in the 50+ crowd, so this might be generational. Does anyone have thoughts or experience in this "breakfast for dinner" realm? Thanks!
