Gardens, whether public or private, offer a beautiful backdrop for spring and summer post-wedding brunches. The Turnip Rose Promenade Gardens include a classic California indoor/outdoor vibe with a banquet hall that flows into a patio plus vast park grounds surrounding it. To make the most of this and other similar venues, inquire about furniture rentals or public picnic tables ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about seating at your event.

24. Malibu West Beach Club
Location: Malibu, California
Beachside omelets and greek yogurt parfaits on a wood deck overlooking the waves? Yes, please! Beach venues like the Malibu West Beach Club are a relaxing setting after the chaos of your wedding day. This venue offers indoor seating, too, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows so you can still enjoy the view. If you plan to host your brunch at a beach but don’t want to get too chilly, try a public beach that has fire pits so everyone stays toasty.
25. Gardener Ranch
Location: Carmel Valley, California
We love farms and ranches for after-wedding brunch venues. Many offer farm-to-table ingredients, stunning forest views, and even some animal encounters. Who wouldn’t want to pet a fluffy cow at their brunch?! We especially love how Gardener Ranch has set up their outdoor event space. The high wood beams covered in florals with boho rattan hanging lanterns are to die for.
FAQs about after-wedding brunches:
Is an after-wedding brunch necessary?
While post-wedding brunches aren’t necessary for every celebration, they are a fun and relaxed way to spend time with loved ones as the wedding festivities slowly come to a close.
What time should the after-wedding brunch be?
It should begin sometime between 11 am and 1 pm. Plan to spend at least two hours at the event and consider allowing guests to come and go as they need to within that time frame.
Who pays for the post-wedding brunch?
Sometimes after-wedding brunches serve leftovers from the wedding or are included as part of a wedding venue’s package, but if you’re serving food specifically for this event, then usually one set of the couple’s parents or the newlyweds themselves pay for it.
