I love a good brunch. Great food, great friends, Champagne in the morning—what’s not to like?!
So the idea for a bridal shower brunch is just plain lovely. It’s a great way to celebrate the bride-to-be and can be just as elegant as an evening brunch.
If you’re stumped on menu and decor ideas, you’re in luck because I’ve rounded up some of the most gorgeous and inspiring bridal shower brunch ideas right here. Here’s everything you need to throw a fabulous brunch affair.
A Mimosa Bar
It wouldn’t be a brunch bridal shower if there wasn’t a mimosa bar involved! Decide on a crowd-pleasing Champagne and make your own bubbly bar where guests can serve themselves.
We recommend several juice options like pineapple juice, orange juice and peach juice, too. You can also include cut-up fruit, like strawberries, which add a nice touch and is fun to drop in.
What’s great about a bridal shower mimosa bar is it doubles as decor, too. We’ve seen loads of pretty signs on Etsy, or you can get creative with a chalkboard and DIY the sign.
Add some balloons and fresh flowers to round up your gorgeous setup.
Bridal Shower Brunch Menu
Not sure what to serve? Well, you may not be surprised that I recommend a few breakfast items on the list!
Your bridal shower brunch menu should include light bites so guests can circulate and chat with each other. Some ideas I like are to have a donut wall or bar, mini pancakes and a DIY yogurt parfait station.
The latter is another great food station idea and looks lovely, too. Include plenty of cut-up fruit and mix-ins so guests can make themselves their own fabulous yogurt parfait.
Want some bridal shower brunch food ideas that are a bit more substantial? Mini quiches, fruit salads and croissant sandwiches are also great party ideas that will feed a crowd.
Be sure you check the guest list first so you don’t go overboard-or under—on your food count.

Brunch Bridal Shower Decor
Since it’s a daytime affair, keep things light and bright. Beautiful florals and greenery always add a nice touch. You won’t have to worry about candles or lighting either.
Depending on the time of year and weather, you may want to consider hosting your bridal shower brunch outdoors. You can rent a few round tables, chairs and some linens to create an elegant affair.
A balloon arch adds a festive touch, and can act as a focal point. You could also chat with the bride and try to incorporate her wedding colors into the decor.
Be sure to include a few photos of the bride and groom as it adds a nice personal touch. You can put some on each table, by the guest book table or have a few on the dessert table.
Should You Play Bridal Shower Games?
Traditionally, a few games are played at bridal showers. But it’s up to the hostess—and the bride—as to whether or not you’d like to include some.
There are some modern and fun games now, like these printable bridal shower games. Games can also be an easy way to give some structure to the party.
