Are you (or did you) host or treat your BMs to a special lunch leading up to your wedding?
If so, where (or, at what kind of place?) and when?
I’m considering making picnic lunches to enjoy during a girls’ day before the rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner the day before.

I went bridesmaid dress shopping with all my girls and treated them to lunch afterwards. We had Thai food! Love Thai food!!!

Magpie I like your picnic idea. We’re planning on doing a spa day for my Bachelorette party (my sister will only be 19 at the time, so no partying, which I don’t really mind anyway) so I think I will treat them to a lunch or dinner that day for all their help. I may do something a little extra special for my Boyfriend or Best Friend, since she’s been the one who has done most of the work for me

I am hoping to do a bridesmaid tea the day of the rehersal dinner. I plan on getting manicures with the girls and then going to tea.
I love the picnic idea though, that may be a possibility. That sounds fun!

Your picnic lunch idea sounds really cute 🙂 I am hoping that I can do a girly lunch with my BMs, mom, and Future Mother-In-Law the day before the wedding.

I took my maids and the moms to a spa for manicures. The place only had 2 manicurists and there were 8 of us. So we set up shop in the cafe of the spa, had lunch, chatted, visited, and took turns getting manicures.
It was easy and comfortable and a nice chance for me to visit with them before the rehearsal started and things got super busy.

My Mum and I are hosting a bridal luncheon for my legion of maids, Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law. We’re probably going to do it at a local restaraunt (since we’re having a Destination Wedding of sorts) and then my FH and I are treating the women to mani/pedis. This is all happening before the rehearsal, the day before the wedding 🙂
I love the picnic idea and TOTALLY wish that we could have it at our house!

I love the picnic idea! I know I want to do something, but I’m not sure what yet. We are doing a spa day the day before the wedding, so I may take them all out to lunch after or maybe host a breakfast at my parents house in the morning.
