This is my second wedding and I'm not really having any bridesmaids but I am asking my soon to be stepdaughter to stand with me. However, I have some very good friends that I've known for 20+ years that are always supportive and "mother" me when I need it. I don't want any bridal showers although they are insisting on doing at least a lingerie party for me. I actually want to do something nice for them instead. Would it be inappropriate for me to host a "NON" bridesmaid luncheon? A dear friend of mine is opening a tea room soon and I thought I might take my close friends to a luncheon there as a thank you for all they do for me. I know they will doing all the tasks that bridesmaids and MOH's normally do when the time comes for my wedding. None of them were bridesmaids at my first wedding either. BTW my mother is passed and I don't really have any other female relatives close if that makes a difference.
