Make your wedding festivities stretch just a bit longer hosting an over-the-top brunch party that will feel like your reception never ended. Miami is no stranger to decadent dining spots, and these five really take the cake when it comes to Sunday brunch that's up to five-star standards. Any of these South Florida hot spots are definitely worthy of being an all-day brunch event.

This Japanese hotspot may have outposts in cities across the globe — from London to Dubai — but the Miami location has a personality all of its own. Take over the private terrace and impress out-of-towners with prime views over the Miami River — as they tackle the massive sushi spread at the all-you-can eat brunch, of course.

Delano South Beach
Delano's iconic Sunday brunch service is back in action with DJ set-ups on the poolside terrace and Bianca's Italian fare served up in pasta form at one of the many food stations. This South Beach restaurant is showcased in a style inspired by the hotel's Alice in Wonderland theme. While the lavish brunch spread and bottomless Veuve Clicquot and Belvedere bloodys are reason enough to indulge, the literal icing on the cake comes inside Bianca South Lounge with Chef Armand Berger's stunning pastry display.

Picture sitting on a sun-drenched terrace with a view of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline in the distance. Now pair that with La Mar's Maracuyá Sour, a passion fruit version of the pisco favorite, and you have the start of a perfect Sunday brunch in Miami. Just throw in the Peruvian-inspired buffet that starts with ceviche and works its way up to calamari grilled à la plancha, and prepare to spend hours indulging in this gourmet feast that makes all of that pre-wedding workout totally worth the indulgence.

South Beach may contain a plethora of luxurious brunch spots, but Seaspice on the Miami River is THE place to go if you want to sit back and people watch as celebs arrive — via yacht — for champagne brunch service helmed by three top names — Perrier-Jouët, Veuve Clicquot, and Moët & Chandon. It's useless worrying about calorie counting here because each savory item on the menu is better than the next. Dishes such as the freshly churned out pizzettas and Alaskan king crab florentine to classics like benedict (served up with your meat of choice: lobster, short rib, or oysters) grace this delicious menu.

Your guests may have thought the party ended last night after the reception, but Bagatelle is known for throwing champagne shower-style brunches that make Friday night at the clubs look tame. Sunday brunch themes change weekly, but the "anything goes" attitude remains the same, fueled by copious amounts of the finest bubbly, costumes, and of course — dancing on the tables.
