Bridal Shower Brunch Ideas

A bridal shower brunch is an easy and inexpensive party to plan.

It can be formal or informal and is a great idea for a couples shower.

Time Of Day

Start your bridal brunch around 10:30am or 11:00am.

This will give your guests time to visit with each other before you serve them brunch.


If you have room, your home is a perfect location for a bridal brunch.

It can be held inside or outside.

If the guest list is long, consider having the shower at a restaurant that serves brunch. Many restaurants offer a special on their Sunday brunch.

Keep the menu light and simple. If you are doing the cooking yourself, serve foods that can be prepared in advance.

Another idea is to let guests bring a favorite dish - along with a copy of the recipe for the bride.

Sample Menu

  • Fresh fruit with cream cheese dip
  • Belgian waffles
  • Sausage or baked ham
  • Assorted muffins and bagels
  • Mimosas
  • White wine
  • Coffee, tea and juices

Use a small chocolate fondue fountain as a centerpiece. Set out fresh fruit and pretzels for the guests to use to dip into the chocolate.

Keep the brunch simple but elegant.

It is usually easiest to set up a long table and serve the food buffet style.

Other suggestions for your brunch are:

  • Use all white - white tablecloths, white flowers, white candles and white dishes.

  • Use colors that match the bride's wedding theme. For example, use pink tablecloths with pink and white flowers for the centerpieces.

  • Pull out the china, if you want to have a more formal affair. Or purchase coordinating plastic tableware for an easy clean up.

  • Set out pictures of the bride and groom - baby pictures, grade school pictures and present day pictures.

  • If you have them, put out pictures of the bride as she has gone about her wedding planning. Examples would be pictures from her engagement party, dress shopping...etc.

Having A Theme

Try to incorporate a theme into your bridal shower brunch. This will help your guests decide on a gift for the bride.

For example, your theme could be a "Kitchen Shower Theme", where the guests bring only gifts for the kitchen.

Or, if it is a couples bridal shower, use a "Honey Do Theme". The guests can bring items from Home Depot or other hardware stores.

Ribbon Bouquet

Don't forget to have someone save the bows and ribbons from the gifts to make a ribbon bouquet for the bride to use at her rehearsal.
