Delicious and sometimes adorable options for your wedding brunch menu

By on Apr 3rd

We got a request from an Offbeat Bride reader for us to feature more offbeat menu ideas that aren't about desserts. We've covered wedding cakes and cake alternatives, but what else should you feed your guests?

I thought I'd start off our menu feature roundups with my favorite of all the kinds of menus: BRUNCH!

Ah, the brunch wedding — budget-friendly and delicious. And don't get hung up on tradition… brunch can take place at ANY time. (Breakfast-for-dinner, anyone?)

How adorable are those mini pancakes!? At the risk of getting even hungrier, let's keep looking at MORE delicious options for your wedding brunch menu:

Smoothies

Tropical Smoothie = easy to carry w/ you from table to table

Fruit smoothies are also a great drink option. Make 'em fresh or pick up a batch at a local smoothie joint. And the bride and groom from the photo note that these were easy to carry with them from table to table while they greeted guests. Photo by Ruby Sky Photography.

Bloody Marys
