Sit back, relax, and enjoy the parties! It's one of the most fun parts about being the bride. 

Between bachelorette weekends, bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners, a lot of the time being the bride means showing up, smiling, opening gifts, and saying, "Thank you!" 

One of the parties falls on your lap, though, and that's the bridal luncheon. 

A bridal "luncheon" also could be an afternoon tea, brunch, or casual get together with snacks. It's a way for the bride to say thanks to all the women who have played an important role in her life, and helped make her wedding day possible. It usually includes the bridesmaids, bride's mother and mother-in-law, grandmothers and often aunts, and any other close friends or relatives.

We recommend hosting your luncheon the Friday before your wedding day. 

The iconic Duke Mansion is just one of an array of perfect locations for hosting a bridal event. Check out what the Mansion has to offer.

About Hannah

There are few things Hannah loves more than Southern charm, classic Ray Ban aviators, a string of pearls, and Sunday afternoons. An admirer of all things lovely and especially the written word, she put her English degree to good use after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill and moved to Charleston where she dove head first into the journalism scene, covering everything from boutique openings to café launches. But the Old North State (and a fiancé of her own) called her back home and now she’s using her experience, creativity and knowledge to write about what she loves most—love.
