There are lots of celebrations before the actual wedding day- from the engagement party and bridal shower to the bachelorette party. But all of these events are honoring you or your groom.
Those lovely ladies who have been there by your side through the thick and thin deserve a little credit too, and that is where the bridesmaid luncheon takes center stage. Surround yourself with your very best friends and enjoy a time of great happiness as you look forward to your wedding.
The bridesmaid luncheon was traditionally something that was started in the South. It was to thank, appreciate, and even give a small gesture of gratitude to your bridesmaids. Being that it was a Southern tradition, it may come as no surprise that Afternoon Tea was the most common choice of theme. These parties were often decked out with flavored hot teas, petit four sweets, tea sandwiches and fine china tea sets.
The tradition has expanded all across the United States, so that brides may show their thanks to the special friends in their lives, although things have changed just a little in modern times. Now, brides like to include all the women who have helped them with wedding planning and through their engagement. Typically attendees include bridesmaids, the mother of the bride and groom, flower girls, aunts, cousins, sisters, and even friends who have been a support system through a stressful time. The bridesmaids’ luncheon doesn’t have to be at lunchtime at all, as many brides are thinking outside of the box. Consider a fancy dinner at your favorite restaurant, a spa day or something based on what you and your girls like to do for fun. Some couples are opting to have a co-ed party. That way your groom will have time to thank and give a gift of appreciation to his groomsmen.
During the luncheon is the opportune time to give a lovely speech to thank all of the wonderful people that have supported you and your husband to be. Also, we suggest taking this time to present them with your gratitude through a token of your appreciation. For bridesmaids, jewelry is typically appropriate, but we also like personalized totes. For the rest of your party attendees, it is thoughtful to give gifts that are fit to their personality and interests. And remember this day is about them, so put the wedding planning on the backburner for the day and enjoy!
