What to Wear to a Post-Wedding Brunch

Post-wedding brunches are all the rage these days. These next-day gatherings are one last hurrah for all the guests to gather before they hit the road and head home. But, how do you dress for them? You’ve already worn your most glamorous guest attire the day before, and let’s just assume you’re a little partied out from a wild reception to remember…

The good news is this: comfort is key. These casual get-togethers call for laid-back attire, so no need to stress over how to dress.  Here are three styling suggestions based on some popular post-wedding brunch themes. The best part is that they won’t require much extra space in your suitcase, because you can throw these looks together with a few key pieces.

Tea Party

If it’s more of a tea-and-coffee-type theme, go for a look that’s easy, yet elegant. Start with a simple summery dress and comfy shoes (aren’t your feet sore from all that dancing?). Infuse a little fanciful flair with a few fun finishing touches, like a dainty hat or fascinator. Then, load up on some of that caffeine, croissants, and crumpets.

Backyard BBQ

No need to overdo it for a backyard barbeque, picnic, or potluck! Just throw on an easy, one-and-done romper, slide into your comfiest sandals, and head on down to see what’s cookin’. Whether the sun’s out or hiding behind the clouds, a jacket and pair of stylish sunnies will keep you prepared for whatever the weather.

Bloody Mary Bar

Your host has assembled pickles, bacon, olives, celery, and all kinds of unconventional fixins for the most epic bloody mary bar imaginable. Your outfit should be full of spicy ingredients, too. Throw on shorts and a t-shirt, but dress them up with some metallic shoes, a statement necklace, and a printed blazer for some casual-but-classy outfitting. Then, stir up some fun!

    In love with all of these looks! For my own casual wedding brunch, I wore a polka dot button down and black jeans, but I want a do-over with that Bloody Mary Bar look (and theme)! 🙂
