    Hi guys. Is it mandatory to do a farewell brunch for a destination wedding? We are hosting events on thurs-sat with wedding on sat. We are planning an afterparty and I honestly don't expect to sleep that night at all. I'd rather sleep in but is this rude?

      in my opinion, there are no rules for DW's ... I did not have a brunch the next morning and in fact, my husband and I went to Havana that morning as a little get away from the resort and our guests.. its up to u what you want to do... but i dont think that, that is necessary

      All my life, I prayed for someone like you... and I thank God that I finally found you!

        not mandatory as far as I'm concerned. many guests probably want to sleep in too.

        We had breakfast with some guests, but it was just because they were up & we were up. Then we had a 2nd breakfast a few hours later and ate with some other guests. It was all very casual & we'd just run into each other at the buffet.

        I didn't want a lot of structure so we could all just relax.

          I agree - not mandatory! We aren't planning one - doing a welcome dinner though

              We aren't doing one, we are doing our TTD session the next day and I just don't want to feel rushed into planning a breakfast as well. I don't think they are mandatory and you pretty much say thank you to everyone the night before! We are doing a welcome dinner though.

              the only thing mandatory about ANY wedding as far as im concerned is saying I DO! that being said, its all a matter of personal preference. if you want one, do it! if you dont, dont! :)

                Agreed, not mandatory. We are having a welcome dinner. But we're doing ttd almost all day they next day so we may do a lunch w/ everyone cause alot of our guests are leaving that next morning (second morning after wedding), or a BBQ or something.

                  We aren't planning one either. I just want everyone to enjoy their vacation and just need them to be around on our wedding day for sure! lol

                    Thanks everyone -- I am hoping most people are having a good time and want to sleep in too!
