One wedding trend that seems to be raising eyebrows is the growing popularity of early morning breakfast weddings.
These celebrations obviously take place in the morning hours and take full advantage of the discounted “off-hour” pricing that most wedding venues offer. Opting to tie the knot in the A.M. instead of the afternoon can easily save you hundreds of dollars while, at the same time, opening up a brand new universe of wedding decor and menu choices.
