Post Nuptial Brunch

You've just been through a whirlwind of parties, dinners and the wedding. Is there really one more event?! Yes, my dear.
The post nuptial brunch is not as common today as in days gone by. But it hasn't completely vanished from the social landscape. Nowadays, the post nuptial brunch is usually held the day after the wedding and is hosted by the parents of the bride, which means they pay for it as well. It's typically a continental breakfast served buffet style. However, it can be as fancy as a plated and served affair.
Who comes to the post nuptial brunch? Everyone that attended the wedding. The event is a relaxing send-off to friends and family who have traveled afar to be at the wedding. It's a kind gesture to include the officiant and anyone else that may have had an instrumental hand in making the wedding perfect.
TIP: Avoid a lot of drama by keeping the event short and fluid. Many will be eager to travel to the airport and Invitations to this event are not necessary. However, you will want to include it in the itinerary for those traveling. Remember to keep it optional and not a social requirement.

the blue centerpiece looks like something @daniachicago would like. I say that because the color is pretty and close to the Tiffany Blue she mentioned.
Im sure it has @darcysdiary. Seems like a good idea to me
What about a brunch-style wedding? has that been done before?
Thanks! Yeah, I do love that vase. I think having a post nuptial brunch would be ideal if there weren't a lot of people. Seems like an unnecessary expense.

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
