Pick a Location for your Bridal Shower Brunch
Before you start planning your bridal shower brunch menu items, you will need to choose a location. A bridal shower brunch can be formal, laid-back and casual, or anything in between! Whether you want to set up a tent on a beautiful day in your backyard or pick a swanky New York City spot like one of Deborah Miller Catering’s preferred venues, you can tailor your bridal shower brunch menu items and decorations to fit your theme.
Planning out your space is key to a successful bridal brunch. Remember to include a sign-in station, gift station, buffet line, and formal seating area and pick out some bridal shower brunch decorations to add some flair to each station.
Choose Bridal Shower Brunch Decorations
Choose bridal shower brunch decorations that match your theme. If your bride has picked out wedding colors, try coordinating these colors into the bridal shower brunch decorations. You can start with the essentials like flowers and candles, and add on unexpected items like lantern décor, signage, and more. Some of our favorite bridal shower brunch themes are rustic chic, travel-inspired, elegant, nautical, preppy, and bohemian! Don’t forget to include a few personalized touches like pictures of the bride and groom at each of the bridal shower brunch stations.
Bridal Shower Finger Food & Cocktails
Keep the mimosas flowing to keep everyone happy! You can forego the full-fledged breakfast at the bridal shower and opt for finger foods or pair your cocktails and mimosas with some small plates before the main course to keep guests satiated. Finger foods are a staple at bridal shower brunches because they are easy to eat while mingling with guests. There are tons of small, simple, and creative options that are sure to impress guests.
If you’d like to serve appetizers prior to your main meal, opt for lighter fare. The great thing about a bridal shower brunch is that you can have a mix of both breakfast and lunch foods. Pair special bridal shower cocktails with a special charcuterie board with an assortment of cured meats and cheese like salami, prosciutto, French double cream brie, and gorgonzola. Serve alongside other bridal shower finger foods like a hummus trio with soft pita and seasonal crudités and Deborah Miller Catering’s skewer sample with delicious lemon herb chicken, coconut shrimp, brussel sprouts, and butternut squash. If the bride-to-be loves a Mexican themed fiesta, bring out the guac and pico with tortilla chips!
Those who want a finger-food only bridal shower brunch will want to opt for heartier options. Serve up a breakfast-oriented spread with mini bagels, muffins, danishes, and fruit. Some of our favorite a la carte options are parfaits in mason jars and mini eff sandwiches with egg, gruyere, and truffle mushrooms.
Top off your bridal shower brunch menu items with festive bridal shower cocktails like a coffee cocktail with Baileys, mimosa – or celebrate with just straight champagne!
