Bridesmaids Lunch

Recommended Posts

I have never heard of that but all of a sudden saw that as part of a wedding budget spreadsheet that I'm using. Are we expected to do an official "bridesmaids lunch"huh.gif Or is this an old school tradition that is optional?

hmmmm, well I guess you technically could have one, but I am not. I have never heard of this as a tradition. Each of my 3 BMs live in a different state, and I do not live in the same state as any of them either, so that would make it hard!

 

We are having a "slumber party" the night before the wedding though wink.gif

Its definitely optional. I was a bridesmaid in a DW that had a bridesmaids lunch the day before the wedding, and included the MOB/MOG and other close female family members of the bride. We showered the bride with lingerie for the honeymoon. Meanwhile the guys went on a deep water fishing trip together. It was really fun, but not a requirement.

I definitely would say it's optional. I did one the morning of my wedding. We all met for brunch in the buffet. It was nice to get together and joke around a little before we got all dressed up.

Maybe I will do the same, but I was thinking that I wanted to do something with our parents only that morning. Who knows, I sitll have time to decide :)

Wow the slumber party is a great idea!!! Especially since FI will be with his 'boys' that night. Love it!

Great feedback ladies. I just didn't want to leave people out since they have all traveled so far. But then again it sounds nice to just spend time with my special girls before the big day. Will definitely help me with stress :)

I figure it will be fun to sit around in jammies with my girls (BMs and girlfriends traveling down) the night before in my room, stay up and talk and have beverages wink.gif

 

Our wedding is not until 5pm the next day so I figure we can sleep in, if I sleep at all from all of the excitement!!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
