From Miss to Mrs: The Morning After

Almost 3 weeks ago, I posted the end of our wedding reception. Since I haven't mentioned the wedding since you may have thought I was finished blogging about it. But surprise, surprise, I have a few final recaps posts to come. If part of you is saying, it's been over a year, time to move on, I understand and promise to soon. But first...
Wedding Presents
The morning after our wedding, after I night the boy & I spent at the Crowne Plaza, we all joined together at my now SIL's house for a morning after brunch. We expected to be one of the last one's there, but be it a mix of adrenaline and the excitement of our first morning as a married couple, we actually arrived before most of the guests.

But eventually friends and family arrived for a breakfast, leftover wedding cake, and present opening.
Opening my Ice Cream Maker
I'm opening my ice cream maker in the photo above, which of course I've yet to use. But I've been thinking of peppermint ice cream for the holidays could be a lot of fun, so hopefully I'm able to make that happen.

The boy even got in on the present action, opening one of his favorites, his mandoline, which he has actually made use of.

Before the wedding, I wasn't too sure about the idea of a morning after brunch. But I'm definitely glad it happened because it gave everyone a chance to be together one last time in a low key atmosphere before saying good-bye.

What are your thoughts on having a morning after brunch for weddings?

  1. I'd never heard of a Morning After Brunch but I think it's a terrific idea! Congratulations on your marriage!

  2. I think it's a great idea. I remember Dave and I went to Macy's to pick up some towels or something we needed for our new home and I felt so weird that we were married and no one there knew or cared!

  3. We did a day after brunch because most of our guests traveled to our wedding. It was fun to spend more time with them (and see who was hungover, hahahaha).

  4. Aww that's fun! What a great idea.

    My mom hosted a brunch for family the day after, but the new husband and I wanted to get up, and head out to our minimoon. My family had a great time though, i think it's a fun way for everyone to relax and hang out :)

  5. I have heard of a Farewell Breakfast (my sister had that), but they didn't open any of their gifts. I actually don't remember there being gifts brought to their wedding (I am sure there were, but I don't remember). This is a cute idea. I wonder if we could pull that off too or if we should just take the gifts home with us wrapped up. Hmm....decisions, decisions!

    Thanks for linking up again!

  7. We did a morning after brunch for our wedding and it was great. (although I was completely exhausted). I really enjoyed having some low-key time with our guests and, like you guys, we were the first ones there!
