What is a Wedding Breakfast?


This is a question asked more often than not by brides, groom and even guests so what does it mean?

Wedding Breakfasts have always been a tradition at weddings for a long time. It is a meal shared with all the friends and family that have come together to share your special day, and at Thief Hall you wedding breakfast can be any food that you like as you pick the caterers!

The meal that follows your wedding ceremony is known as the wedding breakfast, the name comes from the past when traditionally the wedding ceremony was held 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 a reminder that this is the first meal for the newly married bride and groom, the first meal after the ceremony, and this name is kept no matter the time of the day.
