    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" 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

        I've been in weddings where there has been a luncheon, but I don't think it is a "must have."

          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 have never heard of a lunch either, maybe a spa day but never a particular lunch. I like the slumber party idea too!

                    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

                    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!!!!
