Weekend Wedding Brunch Alternative?

Hi Brides!
We are having an intimate weekend/destination wedding starting with a rehearsal, rehearsal lunch, and welcome wine hour the day before the wedding. I wanted to end the weekend with a champagne brunch, but I realize some people may not be able to spend the extra couple of hours after the wedding day due to childcare restraints. Since it’s an intimate wedding with a small number of guests, I think it would take away from the fun of the experience to have the champagne brunch without everyone there to enjoy each other’s company. We still want one last chance to spend time with our guests though!
The only alternative we’ve thought of is to have a brunch board with coffee and ready-made cocktails (for those who have time to hang out) ready by the pool and let our guests know we would love for them to stop by and so we can them off. The idea is to host a breakfast that allows people to come and go like a cocktail party, Weekend Wedding Brunch Alternative? 1

rather than a sit-down meal. Does that translate well? Have any of you tried something similar?

    I think that sounds lovely and lowkey which means more people will be able to stop by but not feel obligated to stay longer than needed especially if people need to travel home. I've been to weddings with something similar and think it's a good idea!

    Thank you! Our main concern with the idea is that people wouldn’t get it. We’ve only been to wedding that have had a full brunch the day after. So, I’m glad to hear you’ve attended weddings where something similar has been done. Do you remember how the couples described it to people? Was it worded in the stationary or did they have people share the event through the grapevine?

    Girl Indian weddings will feed people breakfast lunch and dinner for the weekend, it's insane.
    I think it was worded on an itinerary for the wedding weekend that was part of the invitation suite.
    I would word it like a send-off brunch and say swing by for a grab n go breakfast with the bride and groom by the pool at such and such time and place
