If you're one of the wedding diehards who's going to have friend over at 4 a.m. to watch the festivities live, here are some breakfast ideas perfect for an early morning gathering.
Cranberry and Pumpkin-Seed Scones
It wouldn't be a British experience without what is perhaps our friends across the pond's greatest culinary gift to us: tea and scones. This delicious cranberry and pumpkin version packs extra-savory flavor.
Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns
Indulge your sugar craving bright and early with these warm, cinnamon-infused sticky buns. Let's just call it our way of wishing the bride and groom a sweet union.
Curried Egg Salad
Infuse the usual egg salad with cucumbers, apricot preserves and a dash of curry. Add whole grain bread, slice off the crusts, and cut into triangles for oh-so-British tea sandwiches.

Sautéed Shrimp Cocktail
Up the usual shrimp cocktail up a notch by seasoning and cooking the shrimp. Serve alongside a dipping sauce of mustard, mayo, turmeric, and maple syrup.
Prosciutto-Wrapped Parmesan-Pecan Dates
Combine the sweet and salty with this finger-food. Dates, pecans and thinly sliced prosciutto get better with every bite.
