Question: My fiancé and I can’t decide if a brunch the day after our wedding is something we should do or not. Help!

Answer: First off, remember that a post-wedding brunch isn’t a requirement, says Chrissy Lehman of Truly You Events. “Now, with the pressure off, you and your fiancé can approach the topic from a practical standpoint: Do you have many friends and relatives traveling from out of town? Do you like the idea of connecting with these guests in a quieter setting before everyone heads home? Is there room in your wedding budget, or has someone offered to host? If the answer to these questions is yes, then bring on the mimosas!”

If most of the answers are no, then don’t feel bad about simply bidding your guests adieu before your wedding evening is over.
