Ask the Bride -- Bridesmaid's Luncheon
Question: I have been surfing the net in hopes of finding info
on the bridesmaids luncheon. I have checked the wedding related books that
I have and all I can find is... yes, you're supposed to have one!! My aunt
has offered to host mine and she's wants info about etiquette, who's invited
besides the bride and bridesmaids, what to serve, where to have it, etc.
Answer: As for the Bridesmaids Luncheon, it is traditional for
the bride to host a small party a few weeks to a few days before the wedding
to say thank you to her attendants. Here are some of the basics:
One last idea is to have a joint party with your fiance and his attendants.
I've thought about having a barbeque a month before the wedding with all
of the attendants to give them presents and go over last minute wedding
details and responsibilities. The bridesmaids luncheon is one of the least
strict wedding traditions that I've seen, so my advice is to not worry about
etiquette, follow a couple simple traditions and then make it your own.
It's all about having fun!
