How would you handle a bridal brunch??

So I think I asked some general questions about this before but now it seems its a go so now I have more specific questions.  We have a very small wedding party and I don't know if you guys remember but my sorors contacted me and wanted to do like a bridal brunch since I'm not having a shower.  So they are picking the place and all of that which was A-OK with me.  My question is should I chip in on the bill or maybe for some of it and also what would you do for gifts/favors or that sort of thing (its next weekend so I really wouldn't have time to order something from Etsy or anything like that).  I'm just trying to handle it in the right way and because they wont be at the wedding, I for sure want to do what is right as far as the brunch is concerned.

  • If your sorors are planning the bridal brunch for you, I would assume they would handle things such as gifts/favors.  Just like at a bridal shower, the host would take care of the food and favors, unless your sorors have said they wouldn't or couldn't take care of those things.  I would just relax and enjoy :)

  • I second this! You may want to pick up gifts for those hosting it though.

  • Girl....I remember your post. Sit your behind down somewhere and enjoy the shower. They are doing this in sisterly love for you. If you want, I would maybe get a small token to say thank you to who ever is hosting it for you. Don't over think it or stress yourself, you will have a blast and we will be here waiting for the recap.

    Enjoy the shower but I would still get a thank you gift, especially if they are not invited to the wedding. I wouldnt make it something crazy but even just a handwritten thank you card goes along way

  • Just gifts for the hostesses. If they are planning it for you, then they handle all those other logistics.
