Summer is still here & so is party season. Weddings can be so much fun but lets us not forget all the parties that happen before that!
A bridesmaid luncheon is a great way to thank your bridesmaids for being part of your wedding party. It’s also just a fun excuse to gather all the ladies together one more time before that walk down the isle.
Typically held a few days within the wedding, it can be a casual event but to make it a little more interesting pick a fun theme or a unique setting. Have it be something everyone can enjoy, remember this is for your bridesmaids and other females you are wanting to honor.
Traditional etiquette only requires that the bridesmaids, mothers, and flower girl, along with mother are invited. However, more modern brides also invite other close women to the celebration.
These lunch affair serves an array of tea’s and treats, including finger sandwiches, fruits and pastries. In my opinion it is best to keep it light but that does not mean you cannot have fun with it. Serve some fun champagne cocktails or have your guests dress up for the theme of your party. Remember this time is about sharing stories and having some laughs.
Normally the bride will give a speech thanking her bridesmaids and guests of honor for there support through out the planning process. There is a lot that goes into planning the perfect weddings and friends & family have been there helping with decisions or sometimes just for moral support.
This is also a chance to give small gifts or tokens of appreciation to your wedding party. So pop open that champagne and speak from your heart!
Use your imagination and allow that to create something magical for your fellow women. Regardless of what you choose as a theme or what venue to host it at, there will always be a good time with your ladies when there is champagne and tasty treats!
Thanks to all involved!
