Your bridesmaids are some of the most important people in your life! They’ve stood by your side through it all and now you have the perfect chance to honor them during your engagement season. One way to do so is to host a bridesmaids luncheon just for them! This is a great way to make your bridesmaids feel loved and a great time for you to shower them with gifts and lots of yummy food.
Find the Perfect Location: The location of your bridesmaids luncheon speaks volumes! Somewhere cute and quaint is great for smaller gatherings like this. Think of a place that is easy to access for your maids as well. Birmingham has so many amazing spots for luncheons – you really can’t go wrong!

Select the Perfect Food: There’s no doubt that every good luncheon starts with great food! From mimosas at the door to a delicious plated meal, your sweet maids will definitely be feeling the love. We love the idea of something light like chicken salad with fruit or a salad. With the wedding the next day, you don’t want your girls feeling overly-stuffed!
Purchase the Perfect Gifts: The bridesmaids luncheon is a great place to give your bridesmaids the gifts you hand chose for each of them. Whether its personalized robes or pretty hangers, wrap it up and have it waiting for your girls when they arrive!
Be the Perfect Host: Be sure to take the time to talk with each of your guests and make them feel right at home! Also, we know public speaking isn’t the most fun thing you’ll ever do but standing up and thanking your girls will mean a lot to them.
