1. Choose Your Bridal Shower Brunch Theme

Design: Signature Greenvelope

Bridal showers and wedding showers are the ideal opportunity to get creative with a theme. There are so many wonderful bridal shower themes and you can always come up with your own for a unique twist on the celebration.

Get together with the bridesmaids to come up with a motif that honors the bride-to-be. For example, your bridal shower theme idea could be a vintage tea party, boho brunch, retro diner, floral garden party, or Sunday brunch. Pair your theme with some of our bridal shower ideas and a matching invite (like this pastel-hued Balloon Arch invitation) to create the ideal party.

2. Select a Venue

One of the first items on your bridal shower checklist is finding the perfect venue. When it comes to bridal shower brunches, there are countless options. Think about your theme and party plans, then look for a venue that works within your budget and expectations.

You could host a bridal shower brunch at home or in your backyard. Perhaps you prefer to book a private dining space at the bride-to-be’s favorite restaurant. Or maybe she’d love brunch at the beach or by the lake. You could also find out about reserving space at an art gallery or museum cafe for a truly memorable, next-level experience.

3. Send Themed Bridal Shower Brunch Invites

Once you’ve figured out a theme and have your party details sorted, it’s time to send out those bridal shower invitations. Make the moment feel even more special by choosing themed invites.

At Greenvelope, you’ll find a wonderful collection of bridal shower invitations that work for any theme. Host a boho-themed brunch, romantic bridal shower, or even a gothic-inspired event with this matching Moody Florals invitation. Our design templates are customizable, which means you can update the layout and change fonts, colors, and wording to create an invite that’s as unique as the bride-to-be.

You’re not limited to bridal shower invites either. With so much flexibility and customization available, you can transform a cocktail party invite or garden party invite into a beautiful, personalized bridal shower brunch invitation.

4. Decorate Your Space

Whether you’re hosting at home or a venue, party decor transforms a place and brings it to life. With the right decor, it’s like stepping into another world entirely — perfect for a memorable bridal shower brunch.

Fill your space with bridal shower decorations for a big impact, or keep things minimalist for a more understated get-together. Create centerpieces with fresh flowers, hang banners and balloons, and take inspiration from your theme and the guest of honor’s tastes to decorate the space.

5. Plan a Delicious Bridal Shower Brunch Menu

What sets a bridal shower brunch apart from other types of party is knowing there’ll be a delicious selection of breakfast and lunch items to enjoy. Plan a menu that celebrates the bride-to-be and puts a smile on your guests’ faces — and don’t forget to send a tantalizing invite like this Brunch Blossoms invitation.

Stick to traditional brunch food like french toast, bagels, omelets, waffles, and croissants. You could also serve appetizers like mini quiches, charcuterie boards, and deviled eggs. For a more offbeat bridal shower brunch idea, turn it into a breakfast taco party or fire up the grill for a mid-morning feast of BBQ and comfort finger foods like mini cups of mac and cheese.

6. Plan a Fun Dessert Table

The best thing about brunch food is that you get a perfect mix of savory and sweet. Add to the fun by creating a dessert table filled with sweet treats for your guests to enjoy.

Create a dessert station lined with crepes, waffles, donuts, parfaits, scones, fruit tarts, and cupcakes. Encourage guests to help themselves or customize their desserts with whipped cream, ice cream, sauces, and toppings.

7. Offer a DIY Mimosa Bar

Mimosas are all the rage for brunches, so one of our favorite bridal shower brunch ideas is a DIY mimosa bar. Set up a bar cart or table filled with bottles of bubbly, orange juice or fresh fruit juice, and garnishes like fresh blueberries, raspberries, and mint.

Feel free to expand on those offerings or consider creating a bloody mary bar instead with garnishes like celery stalks, pearl onions, cornichons, olives, citrus wedges, and even bacon. You could also offer non-alcoholic drinks like fresh fruit juices, homemade lemonade, iced tea, and water infused with fresh fruit. Pair with a drink-inspired invite to complete the fun bridal shower brunch vibe.

8. Create a Photo Booth or Backdrop

You want the bride-to-be to remember this day forever, so create a space dedicated to capturing the memories you’ll make. Set up a photo backdrop area or create your own DIY photo booth and encourage guests to snap and share photos.

Find a space at your brunch party to set up a dazzling backdrop, and find some fun themed party props for guests. This is one of those bridal shower brunch ideas that works for any type of party and is always enjoyed by guests.

9. Raise a Toast to the Bride-to-Be

This party is in honor of someone very special, so it’s only natural to make room for a toast. Whether it’s at the start of the party, mid-meal, or at the end, get everyone together to raise a glass. Hand out glasses of prosecco or champagne and make a short speech in honor of the bride-to-be and wish them well for their upcoming big day.

10. Thank Guests With Bridal Shower Favors

It’s customary to hand out party favors to guests as they leave, and bridal showers are no exception. Treat your guests with beautiful bridal shower favors that match your party theme.

Popular choices include cupcakes with personalized toppers, handmade soaps, mini bottles of bubbly, and mini spa kits. Choose a small product or gift that matches your theme and budget, then add a small personalized thank you note to make the gift feel even more special.

11. Send Thoughtful Thank You Notes

Kind Words Card

Design: Signature Greenvelope

If you don’t get a chance to say thank you or pass a note in person, a bridal shower thank you card is the ideal way to show your appreciation to your party guests. Personalize one of our stunning thank you cards — like this Kind Words card — with your own heartfelt message and send it within a week after the bridal shower brunch.
