Bridesmaid Luncheon For the Win
Let’s be real, being a bridesmaid is one of the greatest honors there is but it also is a big role to take on. Being a bridesmaid requires a dedication of both time and money. Therefore, it’s nice to ask your girls to be your bridesmaids to take on the task in a way that makes them feel special. Why not take it to the next level and DO something special for them in the process?
If you want to make the food yourself as a labor of love, here are some ideas for "light bites." Your bridesmaids will go crazy over these cute but simple finger foods. Pair them with some sangria and everyone goes home happy!
-A crostini with goat cheese, sliced strawberry, basil and a balsamic reduction to finish it off.
-A crostini with ricotta, sliced pear, slivered almonds and a drizzle of agave to really seal the deal.
-A mini skewer with feta, mint leaf, and watermelon--on repeat!
-A "mini sword" skewer with mozzarella, cantaloupe, prosciutto, and a balsamic reduction.
-A cajun shrimp scoop to really bring home the win! Steam your shrimp and then toss them in some olive oil. Next, sprinkle them with cayenne pepper and paprika. Place the shrimp inside a Tostitos scoop chip. Then, add a piece of avocado and a dollop of sour cream.
I wrote each of my bridesmaids a note about how important she is to me and why I want her in my bridal party. I bought cards from BHLDN that have a custom scratch off. I wrote a "superlative" or tagline for each of my bridesmaids on the outside of the card. Then, I covered the writing with a gold sticker that doubles as a scratch off. The scratch off process revealed lines such as...
"We played 'wedding' as 2 year olds...now will you actually be my bridesmaid?"
