Sunday brunch?

Brunch is my absolute favorite meal: waffles, strawberries, mimosas, omlettes, lox, home fries and salsa:
such great combinations of savory and sweet that you don't get at any other meal. Plus endless cups of coffee, and (usually) endless hours to while away with conversation and the newspaper.

So why anyone would question whether brunch is appropriate for a wedding is a bit unfathomable to me -- maybe people are less likely to drink and dance in the noonday sun.

But the idea of hanging out with friends the day after the wedding is pretty irresistible to me. My model is my friend Tina's wedding last Nov. The day after the wedding, diehard partiers lounged in the deep shade of sprawling trees at her father's farm.

We're still working out our Sunday morning plans, but they'll definitely involve plenty of french-pressed coffee and sunglasses.

Whatever we decide to do, I know what I'd like to wear...

I heart your dresses AND your menu.

I could eat brunch-like foods any time of the day. Especially at midnight. Since I don't get to see my friends (we live far away now) as often as I like I know I want to have the day after brunch if we can swing it.

i'm totally with you - i love brunch more than i love dinner! we did also consider having a wedding brunch but nixed it for various reasons.

we did have a day after brunch (for out of towners and bridal party only) and i think it was a great idea. we got to hang out with people before they left town, and got to hear a lot of funny stories that we missed out on because we were busy entertaining people. if it's in your budget i highly recommend it!
