37 A A Bridesmaid Luncheon The day before the wedding is the perfect time to gather the ladies of your bridal party to thank them for their time and contributions over the course of the entire planning process. At BridgeStreet Gallery & Loft, Ashley Stork of I Do, I Do! Wedding Planning has brought Southern sweetness to the table with a mimosa bar, a charm cake and petite bites of deviled eggs with salmon veggie fritters and other light bites. Catering: The Happy Catering Co. Charm Cake: Olexa's Cafe, Cakes & Catering. China & Accessories: Bromberg's, CeCe Decor. Floral Design: CeCe Designs. Linen: Decor to Adore. Planner: I Do, I Do! Wedding Planning. Photography: J. Messer Photography. Venue: BridgeStreet Gallery & Loft. The bridesmaid luncheon is the perfect time for the bride to give each lady a special gift, such as the Bromberg's charm earrings seen here. It's also a great opporunity for the Southern tradition of a charm cake. Each bridesmaid pulls a ribbon at the base of a cake revealing a silver charm indicating such fortunes as adventure, prosperity or even new love! The Plan "I normally start with a color inspiration board. I wanted the luncheon to be very feminine and light feeling. From a planning and design stand point, I started with the china and place setting and then continued the vision from there with linen selection, foral concept and what would be served to guests. Remember that this is a really fun way to honor your bridesmaids as well as the special women in your life like grandmothers, aunts, mothers. Personally, I love spoiling the people in my life with entertaining and this is a great way to do just that. Bridesmaids give alot to be part of the wedding so make it really special with personalized elements." - Ashley Stork, I Do I Do! Wedding Planning
