The wedding I was in last year, the grandmother of the bride threw a luncheon for all the bridesmaids and the mom’s the day of the rehearsal dinner.  It was a nice touch.

 

I on the other hand had no time and sadly no desire, to spend yet more money on food for people.  By that time I was so sick of spending money there was no way I could stomach paying for another couple hundred dollar bill.

I’m having a bridesmaid brunch thing the morning of the wedding.  I’m in the same boat as you, that we’re not all in the same place, so it was what worked best and I’m excited to spend that morning with the girls and my mom.

I’m also having a casual luncheon the day of the wedding.  Since our ceremony doesn’t start until the evening, we’re having a bridal luncheon that morning/noonish for the bridesmaids and close female family members of myself and Fiance.  We’ll have to eat anyway, so I figure it’ll be a good way for everyone to have some downtime and enjoy themselves before the craziness starts.

I never did a Bridesmaid or Best Man luncheon, but I helped A LOT with financing travel and such, so I didn’t really think about it.  Maybe you could do a breakfast the day of the wedding?

I think I might do something very informal, like breakfast at a diner…but sooner rather than later, so they can get to know each other b/c they’re all from diff. parts of my life!

My girls are all in the same place so we are having a “sleepover” the night before and staying at the hotel we will be getting ready at.  I imagine we’ll grab breakfast of some sorts before we start getting ready!

I am doing the sleep over the night before the wedding – all but one of my bridal party is married but none of them mind!

I would have loved to, but time did not permit!  I would recommend it to any bees that can fit it into their schedule, as I think it would have been great to have some bonding time before the blur that is the wedding =)

I’ll do a luncheon the day before the wedding. Everyone’s from out of town, and hopefully they will be able to come in Thursday night/Friday morning.

I’m doing the sleepover the night before the wedding as well.  I’m really looking forward to it.  Just have to try not to stay up too late with the girl talk.

I had never heard of a bridesmaid luncheon until my grandmother, very stressed, informed my mother that she didn’t think she’d be able to throw one for me when she flew in for our wedding. I was like, “What?” I think these were popular in the South, where my family is from. I can’t really imagine having a planned luncheon on the day of the wedding, with everything else going on. I told my mom all I want is some bagels and snacks in the bridal apartment where we’ll be getting ready so we don’t die of starvation all day. Oh and champagne of course. 🙂

You’re sweet to want to plan time with your girls, and I think all of your ideas are good, though you’re correct that your married friends’ husbands won’t want to have to pay for their own hotel room if their wives aren’t with them. Lunch on the Sunday after the shower/bachelorette sounds like a great option.

Bridesmaid or Best Man Luncheon, yes! It’s my mom’s doing, really, but it’s the morning of the wedding. I’m excited… I’ll actually get FOOD on the wedding day!

I really really want to!!!!  Two of my BMs, however, live out of town so I’m really hoping that we can all find a time when everyone is free for just a basic lunch to get together.

We’re date twins!! 🙂 I’m probably not having a bridesmaids lunch, just because we’re together for the bridal shower & again at the rehearsal & the wedding. I didn’t really feel it was necessary. & especially since your bridesmaids mostly are out of town I wouldn’t do it.
