When it comes to hosting a modern-day bridal shower, you can never go wrong with a classic brunch theme. Don’t believe us? Well too bad, ‘cause we did the research and the results are in… breakfast + bubbles + bloodys= bomb.com!
Seriously, facts are facts my friend. So, if you wanna be the GMOHOAT (greatest maid of honor of all time), throw your bestie a boozy bridal brunch.
Now that we’ve convinced you, let us show you how. From invitations and decorations to food, favors, games, and gifts, we’ve covered everything you need to know to pull off this bridal shower theme in eight easy steps.
The first step in nailing this theme is to send out invitations letting guests know to expect a brunch-style shower. As I’m sure you’re familiar with Etsy (and the internet in general), you know there are literally hundreds of different styles to choose from.
One of the most important parts of any bridal shower is the decor, but it’s especially important for this particular theme. Lucky for you, there is no shortage of brunch-related decorations.
Don’t forget to add some fun table signs (like our FREE ‘First Comes Brunch’ option) and you’ve got everything you need!
When it comes to hosting a bridal shower brunch, feel free to skip the generic games and opt-in for something that packs a little more punch. And by ‘packs a little more punch’ we’re talking about prosecco pong.
Never heard of it? Yeah us either, but we want to seriously thank whoever came up with the idea. Let’s be real, everyone loves a competitive round of beer pong or two, but it’s not quite bridal shower appropriate. Prosecco pong, however, totally is.
And if your guests aren’t really the drinking game type, how about playing good ol’ fashioned ring toss with a fun bridal spin?
The best part about this brunch-themed game is that it doubles as a DIY project!
If you’re going to have brunch-themed games, then you’re gonna have to have brunch-themed game prizes to match. Keep it simple by putting together a coffee care package that includes a cute mug and a bag of Starbucks breakfast blend.
