When you’re planning a wedding, the most important things you’ll want to think about are the wedding venue, the wedding reception venue, and the caterer. If you’re picking out the menu for your wedding reception, keep reading for some tips on choosing the perfect food style for your big day.

Breakfast or Brunch Wedding Reception
If you’re planning a morning wedding, then your wedding reception can easily be a breakfast or brunch reception. Morning wedding receptions often give you a prime pick of wedding venues and wedding reception venues, as most weddings are held in the afternoon or evening. Hire caterers that can offer an omelet bar, customized pancakes, fruit, bagels, muffins, and savory breakfast meats. You can also serve Bloody Marys, mimosas, and champagne.

Cocktail Wedding Reception
A cocktail wedding reception is a much more casual wedding reception option for couples. Because these receptions are often more brief than wedding receptions that feature traditional sit-down meals, you can save quite a bit of money and stress. Find a beautiful, elegant wedding reception venue or party space rental, and hire bartenders and caterers to pass out cocktails and appetizers. Create your own signature couples cocktail to offer your guests. Be sure to inform your guests that there will not be a full meal served.

Cake and Punch Wedding Reception
A cake and punch wedding reception is similar to a cocktail reception, in that it is shorter and less expensive than a reception with a full meal. You can serve drinks and desserts, but don’t need to serve food or appetizers. These receptions are often held a few hours after the wedding, so that guests have time to eat dinner before attending.
