I just read this:
'In anticipation of some very late risers, the newlyweds nixed the idea of a fancy farewell brunch and instead prepared half-dozen boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts to give to their guests as they left the reception. After a night of pure celebration, some serious sleep was the perfect party favor.'

Maybe it's because I'm not a morning person but I'm loving this idea. Too bad I didn't read about it before sending out our invitations asking everyone to RSVP to all of our wedding weekend activities, including a farewell brunch! We're still trying to decide on the location for this ... we have two great options in mind right now but when I read the Krispy Kreme mention, I couldn't get the idea out of my head ... Would it be too beyond tacky to have everyone meet up for donuts and coffee the day after? It's not at all what I had been envisioning but we're only expecting around 20 or so people for the brunch and they're all very laidback.
I've always had a fondness for Krispy Kreme - My Dad and I used to visit one of the original ones in Charleston when I was little and we'd always get the same thing. I loved the swivel stools and the chrome and the 'regulars' who would sit and do their crossword puzzles. I think it would be a fun, quirky locale loaded with nostalgia but I just don't know if it would be appropriate.
What do you think?
