You’re planning a bridal shower brunch, the perfect midday bash for the BFF who’s stood by your side through thick and thin.
Why a brunch? This late morning meal combines the best of breakfast and lunch, lending itself to nearly any theme or style party, and perhaps the most exciting part, there’s room for cocktails on the menu.
A wedding shower brunch might also be appropriate for the bride-to-be who appreciates a more intimate gathering, says wedding planner Christine Zohrabians of Fancy That Events.
“It’s perfect for the woman who loves the concept of an intimate and personal gathering while also being surrounded by food and laughter.”
Inviting your bestie’s closest friends and family members to a bridal shower brunch can be fun and exciting with the right invitations.
Get tips on how to pick the best venue for the party, a showcase of five beautiful stationery templates and a primer on bridal shower brunch invitation wording.
A brunch can be held at nearly any type of venue. How to pick the best spot? Select a venue that reflects your bestie’s style as well as the formality of the event.
If she’s simple and laid-back, she’ll love a potluck-style brunch at your home or mother’s house. If she’s an uptown gal, the latest rooftop restaurant is the backdrop for a classy affair. If you’re planning a large event, consider a hotel or restaurant that will accommodate your guest list and budget.
Whether you’re planning a champagne brunch at her favorite restaurant or a cozy buffet at home, the key is to translate the style and formality of the event into your invitations.
What’s so brunchy about bridal shower brunch invitations? The time.
A typical brunch is held between the hours of 11 am and 2 pm. If the shower is at a restaurant or an upscale venue, the invitation might also include an end time. Including the start time on the invitation will tell your guests that they’re invited to a special brunch in honor of the bride-to-be.
Besides the time of the party, bridal brunch invitations are nearly identical to traditional wedding shower invitations. See our complete bridal shower invitations wording and etiquette guide for a detailed look at what to include in your invitations, along with a timeline on when to send them out.
With the perfect wedding shower invitations, guests will be clear on not only when and where the party will be, but also what to bring (think: registry information) and how to dress (clues from theme and venue).
“Make sure to address the theme if you want guests to come dressed appropriately and ready to have a good time,” says Christine.
What are some common and fun bridal shower themes? Christine’s favorite is the tea party theme.
“A tea party has always been classic and popular,” she says. “A hat theme is always fun. A kitchen theme is also a little playful and fun!”
Along with the theme, bridal brunch invitations can also include custom touches, such as unique color palettes, images and photographs.
