It might not rival the stag night for raucous activity and entertainment, but the wedding breakfast can be "an essential turning point" in the run-up to the big day, according to one newlywed bride.
Lynn Jinks, who recently tied the knot herself, told the Birmingham Post that couples often find themselves too busy organising the main event to consider the morning meal, which can play a big part in the success of the day.
So much so, in fact, that she has set up her own business that aims to make wedding breakfast entertainment "a priority" and put an end to awkward silences and stilted conversations.
"I came up with the idea of creating simple and effective ice-breakers which suit each guest," she explained.
"They are easy, fun and exciting and are a great way of getting guests interacting, laughing and talking."
Ms Jinks said the entertainment is set out to suit the personalities of the couple and their guests and "can range from the austere to laugh-out-loud fun and frolics".
According to the Chester Chronicle, an increasing number of couples are factoring in environmental concerns when planning their weddings, with e-vites replacing paper ones and organic flowers on show.
