Planning a brunch with the bride as a farewell after the wedding is becoming more and more popular! From hosting an intimate coffee and nibbles in a hotel suite to celebrating with all of your family and wedding party at a larger gathering, a post-wedding brunch is a great way to get to spend extra time with those you love. Below we’re sharing 5 decor ideas to bring your farewell party to life!
One: Boozy Cocktails + Bar
No matter where you’re hosting your farewell brunch the morning after your wedding, drinks are a must! Opt for a DIY mimosa bar, or leave the details up to the professionals and hire Mountain Sips Mobile Bar to serve up delicious drinks to your guests all morning long. For a mocktail option, offer Fré, a non-alcoholic sparkling brut! Hiring a mobile bar allows your parents, family and friends to enjoy the morning without having to worry about waking up early to set-up, clean up or host! Instead, everyone gets to kickback, relax and enjoying one last boozy beverage while raising a glass the happy couple!

Two: Scrumptious Bites
Food is a must, obviously…especially after a late night of dancing and drinking. Colorado Luxe Picnics and Happy Hour Donuts outdid themselves with the spread below. There is something to satisfy everyone’s cravings from donuts and pastries to fruit, bagels and so much more! Breakfast charcuterie setups are the perfect option for guests to make a plate that suits their appetite. And, it’s quick and easy so if guests need to hit the road or catch a flight they can enjoy some nibbles without the worry of being late while waiting for a full hot meal.
Three: Balloons Galore
Balloon arches may not be the right fit for your actual wedding day, but they make for a fun addition to a post-wedding farewell brunch. Hire a company like Balloon Pop Studio to design a balloon arch crafted from your wedding day colors. This will allow you to pull in decor from the evening before. If you’re hosting the farewell celebration in a hotel suite, a balloon arch is a great way to bring some color and pizzazz into a potential bland hotel room.
Four: Decor from the Night Before!
Why let all the decor you paid for go to waste right away? Utilize decor from your wedding reception to tie together the celebrations. We adore how Territory West repurposed the tabletop decor and rentals from the night before to bring the morning-after brunch to life! Disco balls, candles, signage and even plates are things to carry over into your post-wedding celebrations! Plus, it’s a great way to save money from having to buy or rent completely different accent pieces. A change of venue is the perfect way to separate the two events.
Five: Festive Florals
Many couples often wonder what to do with their florals the day after their wedding. However, if you’re hosting a post-wedding farewell brunch, you have your answer! Line the tables, entryway, and even serving plates with florals from the day before. Boutonnieres are perfect for plate accents, and ceremony florals or even your arch are great for decorating the head table where you and your new spouse will sit. Let your wedding planner take care of moving them from the wedding day venue to the farewell brunch so you don’t have to worry about any details.
