Just combining the words champagne and brunch and you know you are in for a good time. These days, brunch receptions have become more popular than ever. And why wouldn’t they? Not only are you usually saving money on rental costs, but the price for a brunch vs. dinner can be quite a big difference.
At both of our locations, your guests would never be able to guess how much you really are saving just by choosing to do a day wedding. You still get exactly the same accommodations, same amount of time as you would an evening ceremony, and our Brunch Menu not only is HALF the price of our buffet menu, but also INCLUDES champagne!
Still need more reasons of why you should book a day wedding vs. an evening? Keep reading…
Short on time for photos? Forget about it.
Running out of light for your pictures after the ceremony will not be an issue. You would be amazed how many brides do not allot enough time for pictures to be taken after the wedding ceremony and are scrambling after the ceremony with their photographers to get in last minute shots before the sun sets.
Your bar tab will be less expensive.
So you’ve decided you really want to host the bar for your wedding, but you’re afraid your friends and family are going to drink you into bankruptcy… A daytime wedding is the answer for you. We guarantee you that people are less likely to drink as much during the day than they would at night. Now does that mean people are going to be an absolute bore and no one will be drinking and have a good time? Of course not. No doubt you and your friends will still be hitting the dance floor after a couple of our unlimited mimosas, but maybe you’ll be saving your favorite aunt from a snap shot of herself passed out behind the DJ’s table.
You can get creative.
If you really want your wedding to truly stand out in people’s minds, consider all of the fun concepts you can embrace with a daytime wedding. We’ve all had a piece of cake and eaten it too (well actually more like taken a bite and pushed it to the side), so give your guests a more enjoyable option than a boring piece of cake. Have a doughnut bar, tea and cookie or espresso and biscotti display instead! Maybe you’re like us and would choose a Bloody Mary over champagne any day – well your dreams are about to come true when your eyes feast over the Bloody Mary Bar below. And don’t worry it’s not just limited to food, have a game and activities area for all of your friends and family to enjoy! (At Lakeside our putting green area is just below our patio and the Pavilion has plenty of space for bocce ball or any outdoor games you and your friends love to play.)
Your vendors may be cheaper.
Some companies will actually offer you discounts on daytime weddings, especially if you choose to hold your ceremony and reception on a Sunday. As you’re researching vendors, ask them what incentives or discounts they offer. Photo booth rentals, photographers, DJs, rental companies… you’ll be surprised just how much you can really save!
