The wedding breakfast has been part of the big day for a very long time, and it’s when, traditionally, all the speeches take place. It is a meal of celebration, one shared with friends and family. Initially, the wedding breakfast would be held immediately following the wedding which took place after mass. The whole wedding party would fast before mass and so for the bride and groom this was their first meal.
Today, the name is used as a reminder that this is the first meal for the newly married couple, the first meal after the ceremony.
It is very unusual to find two wedding breakfasts to be identical. The breakfast is usually unique to the happy couple and reflects personal choice and personalities.
