I just read this:
‘In anticipation of some very late risers, the newlyweds nixed the idea of a fancy farewell brunch and instead prepared half-dozen boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts to give to their guests as they left the reception. After a night of pure celebration, some serious sleep was the perfect party favor.’

Maybe it’s because I’m not a morning person but I’m loving this idea. Too bad I didn’t read about it before sending out our invitations asking everyone to RSVP to all of our wedding weekend activities, including a farewell brunch! We’re still trying to decide on the location for this … we have two great options in mind right now but when I read the Krispy Kreme mention, I couldn’t get the idea out of my head … Would it be too beyond tacky to have everyone meet up for donuts and coffee the day after? It’s not at all what I had been envisioning but we’re only expecting around 20 or so people for the brunch and they’re all very laidback.
I’ve always had a fondness for Krispy Kreme – My Dad and I used to visit one of the original ones in Charleston when I was little and we’d always get the same thing. I loved the swivel stools and the chrome and the ‘regulars’ who would sit and do their crossword puzzles. I think it would be a fun, quirky locale loaded with nostalgia but I just don’t know if it would be appropriate.
What do you think?
