Bridesmaid Luncheon Invitations

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

It’s not ALL about the bride. Wait, what?! It’s true, weddings are mainly focused on the bride and the newlywed-couple-to-be. However, it is very common nowadays for a bride to host a bridesmaid luncheon in honor of her bridesmaids, parents, grandmother(s), cousins and friends that have assisted her with the planning of her big event. This is a great time to present these helpful people with small gifts or tokens of appreciation for their continued efforts, support and help with the wedding. The bride may also give gifts to her mother and mother-in-law-to-be at this time.

A bridal luncheon typically can be dinner, brunch, tea, barbecue or a gathering at a spa or massage parlor. It can be a formal or casual event which is typically hosted a few days to weeks before the wedding, depending on how busy the bride is with her wedding plans. A typical bridal luncheon tradition is to prepare a cake for everyone to share at the event. The bride bakes a ring, coin, thimble or other trinket into the cake. The thought is that whoever gets this trinket will be the next to get married or fall in love. Just make sure that the cake is evenly cut to ensure that someone receives the luck.
