We all know that eating a healthy breakfast is important, right? You also know that your wedding is going to be one of the most special days of your life. So it should go without saying that your Bridal Breakfast is an important meal that should not be overlooked!
Breakfast is the Most Important Meal of the Day
When thinking about weddings and food, most people automatically default to thinking about the reception. What h'orderves do you serve? How many main course options should there be? Let's not forget the gorgeous wedding cake! The food you serve at your reception is important, but don't make the mistake of forgetting about the food you are going to eat before the wedding.
The bridal party is going to be exceptionally busy in the hours leading up to the wedding, but it's important not to skip meals, especially if you are having an evening event. You need to stay nourished and hydrated so you can enjoy every moment of the Wedding Day and Wedding Ceremony!
Planning the Perfect Bridal Breakfast
What should you consider when planning your bridal breakfast? Take into consideration how busy you will be, and the fact that people will be fluttering around throughout the morning trying to achieve different tasks. As everyone is getting their hair and makeup done, and dressing in their wedding attire, they may still need to eat something to keep their energy up, so plan a meal that is easy and mess-free, but tasty for everyone. Let's not forget a healthy option and light options to choose from.
Choose Light, Mess-Free Options
Foods that are prepared in individual servings and that can be eaten relatively mess-free without a lot of fuss are perfect for a bridal breakfast. A small, light breakfast allows everyone time to enjoy each other's company without walking away feeling too full or sluggish. Having some "grab and go" style options also makes it easy for people to help themselves to a quick, re-energizing bite when they have a few minutes of downtime, before jumping back into wedding mode.
Offer a Variety of Choices
Your bridal party is likely to have different taste preferences, and possibly different dietary restrictions. If for no other reason, variety is the spice of life. Offering different flavors and dietary options to accommodate your family and friends means that everyone can partake and enjoy the meal!
What Foods Make the Best Morning Menu?
Some foods are perfectly suited for a bridal breakfast. You want something tasty, filling, and that can appeal to a variety of people's tastebuds.
Breakfast sandwiches are great for a delightful sit-down breakfast before the wedding planner takes over. You can have your bridal party select their sandwich of choice ahead of time, or you can offer a variety of sandwich options and just let everyone choose something tasty that morning. Flavorful artisan breads, such as sourdough, whole grain or croissant, with a variety of protein choices, or an avocado option, will give most people something they'll be excited about trying. Having a whole grain and protein combination is great for keeping your energy up throughout the day.
Muffins are delicious, and they are an amazing option for a bridal breakfast, because there are so many unique choices. You could easily offer a seasonal fruit muffin or two, a lemon poppy seed, and a vegan option. Muffins can be mini or full-sized, making them perfect to serve as an accompaniment to a main course, as a light breakfast, or as a snack throughout the day.
What's not to love about a fresh, flaky croissant? A handmade, freshly wrapped, chocolate croissant adds a bit of decadence and a lot of deliciousness to your menu! Croissants are also an excellent choice for a quick meal or light snack between photo shoots.
Always a great choice for breakfast or brunch, scones are perfect to serve alongside morning tea. Choose a chocolate chip scone for those with a little sweet tooth, and a seasonal fruit scone for a refreshing breakfast.
If you aren't afraid of a little sticky goodness, cinnamon rolls are a delightfully delicious option. It's like having dessert for breakfast, and who doesn't love that!
Do not be afraid to mix-and-match and offer a lot of choices! You could choose breakfast sandwiches as the main course, with a full array of baked goods and pastries as sides and as pick-me-up snacks throughout the day. You can even set it up as a breakfast bar, but the more choices you have, the more likely it is that everyone will find something delicious to try.
