Simple Ideas for Throwing the Perfect Bridal Shower Brunch

Brides and brunch go together like weddings and cake. The meal is a refined yet casual way to celebrate her impending nuptials. It’s also a breath of fresh air and welcomed departure from the typical rote of bridal shower pastimes.
We’ve cooked up some delicious bridal shower brunch ideas to help you serve up some serious fun at your next event.

Venue Selection

All other decisions stem from this critical choice. Some groups might initially decide to go the restaurant route. However, depending on the size of your party, doing so could end up a huge disappointment. After all, Brides aren’t the only ones who like brunch! The weekend crowds are equally ravenous and not to be underestimated. Even with a reservation, you could end up with a starved out bunch of ladies, or worse, a hangry bride! Circumvent all this potential heartache by booking your bridal brunch shower at a full service event venue. They’ll have a catering staff on hand to help you meal plan and dole out libations plus kitchen staff and servers dedicated solely to your party. Bonus points if it also happens to have a variety of well-manicured outdoor gardens! These verdant spaces are the ideal backdrop for a sophisticated shower and can almost exclusively serve as the décor itself.


Again, selecting a full service event venue, means you’re covered here, too. They’ll have a large inventory of pretties for you to choose from. However, if you still need some decorations to supplement your shower, try creating a theme! It’s a fun way for guests to participate. If all else fails, some fresh flowers should do the trick.


Your invitations will set the tone for the entire affair. They let guests know how fancy or casual to dress, whether to bring a gift and other essential details about the gathering. Make sure they give explicit instructions for any themes or bridal preferences, like whether or not the shower will be child friendly. Make sure to mail out at least one month prior to the event so folks have plenty of time to block off their calendars. brunch

Sips and Snacks

The most important part of any bridal brunch shower comes down to what guests will ingest and imbibe. Work with the caterers at your full service event venue to come up with fare that will be light yet satisfying. For instance, a DIY pancake and waffle buffet is sure to please. Just make sure you have gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options to account for any possible dietary restrictions. Setting up a mimosa or bloody mary bar can easily knock out drinks. Include plenty of garnishes and non-alcoholic options so guests can top off their mid-day cocktails or mocktails in style.


Lawn games like croquet, bocce ball and badminton are having a resurgence, and for good reason. Let your party enjoy the great outdoors as part of the day’s scheduled activities to create lasting bonds among those closest to the bride herself. A mid-day shower is a fully wonderful way to celebrate the bride-to-be. With these bridal brunch ideas, guests are in for an afternoon of entertainment they won’t soon forget.
