Brunch & Brides: A True Love Story at Normandy Farm
First comes brunch, then comes marriage.
The easy decision was saying “Yes!” Now come the multitude of decisions to say “I Do.” Normandy Farm and The Belle of Blue Bell offer a variety of options to create the wedding of your dreams, including an amazing brunch package, to fulfill all of your wedding fare fantasies!
Bring on the Bloody Marys! Picture this: a sunny morning ceremony in the garden, surrounded by nature and blossoms, followed by an afternoon cocktail hour on the Terrace and a rustic ballroom reception. Brunch weddings are trending for a reason and the menu is affordable and served in abundance. Have fun with chicken & waffle hors d’ oeuvres, or a wedding cake made of pancakes or donuts. Offer a coffee and espresso bar. Not to mention, having an early wedding allows you more time to spend with your guests - which is why you invited them, right? Brunch is always a good idea, but a Brunch Wedding is the best idea. Here are some reasons why:
Save for the honeymoon:
According to The Knot, serving brunch is one of the most cost-effective receptions you can have. "Your liquor costs will be much lower than an evening affair, and you won't have to shell out money for a full live band (unless you want to, of course). Plus, the reception space is less expensive to rent in the morning, midday and early afternoon."
Start early and gain quality time:
The early start time allows you to spend more time with your guests. That's why you invited them, right? The typical reception usually takes place between 11AM and 2PM, allowing the rest of the day for quality time with friends and family.
Dress it up or dress it down:
Brunch can be boujee or low maintenance, elegant or casual. No matter your style, it's a trend that we can all get on board with. Make it all about the food and drinks or make it about the tablescapes and decor. We offer a brunch menu like no other including cinnamon-glazed french toast, omelettes & frittatas, oven-roasted home fried potatoes and breakfast sWaldorf chicken salad, carved turkey, and so much more.
Keep it intimate or make it grand:
A short ceremony, small guest list, and private dining; micro-weddings are the perfect option for minimalists or couples on a budget. Have the simple yet elegant farm-chic wedding of your dreams with those near and dear to you. Intimate weddings span from 10-78 people here at the farmer's daughter restaurant. The variety of four private room offerings allows guests the intimacy they want. Not to mention, our menus rotate seasonally, so our chefs will serve you and your guests the sumptuous, pure flavors of what’s ripe and fresh from the surrounding region. Can't quite knock down your guest list? We offer three large ballroom spaces to accommodate up to 360 guests.
And that’s not all!
Pictures can be taken throughout the property, offering a variety of backdrops.
Celebrations can continue at the farmer’s daughter bar for an after-party.
After the wedding festivities have come to an end, the guests can take the elevator home, as we offer hotel room blocks for your guests.
They don't call it Sunday Funday for nothing!
Here are 4 reasons why Sunday is the best Brunch Day… and save a little money while you’re at it.
Venue & Date Options. While 7 out of 10 weddings take place on Saturdays, Sundays allows for flexibility of dates at the venue of your choice. Once you book the venue and date, the savings continue...
There is a lower expectation for extravagance. Go simple elegance for your decor and theme. Keep your centerpieces natural and chic.
Vendor discount and availability. Avoid the Friday/Saturday surcharge with vendors. Vendors not only offer lower rates but are open to negotiation
Relaxed Photo Opportunities. Sundays are the most relaxed day of the week in general, but whether your starting earlier or partying late, you’ll have plenty of non-rushed time for couple and bridal party photos.
You found the one... why wait?

No need to skimp on your venue, food, or entertainment; just choose a date from our list of available dates. 2021 is your year to have your cake and eat it too!
