While many people are familiar with the conventional parties associated with weddings such as engagement parties, bachelor or bachelorette parties or even bridal showers, there was a custom in the past for a ladies luncheon to be an integral part of the wedding celebration. This was traditionally a way for the bride to show her appreciation for the bridesmaids, flower girls and other women who have played a special role in the wedding.

This simple custom can be a great way to make your wedding extra special and with some of the best restaurants for breakfast and lunch in Perth, offering some fantastic menu deals, it need not be difficult to organise.

Generally, a ladies luncheon is a small and intimate affair. The guest list will usually include the bridesmaids, flower girls, mothers and sisters of the groom and bride and any other special ladies such as grandmothers. It is traditionally scheduled to take place two days before the actual wedding day. This can provide an excellent way for you and your guests to relax and enjoy yourselves with all the wedding plans already put in place.

However, if you have guests travelling in to Perth for your wedding, you may need to be a little more flexible on the date of your ladies luncheon. Alternatively, if all your guests live locally, you may wish to schedule your ladies luncheon for the weekend before the wedding day, if you are concerned about last minute stress and activity.

As the bride, you should serve as the hostess for the event. You should issue the invitations and arrange the venue. Simply because it is such a small luncheon, there is not necessarily a need for formal invitations, but if you wish to make it special, you could print some pretty invitation cards. Ideally, your luncheon should take place at a restaurant, since it is likely that the family homes are going to be busy with other wedding arrangements.

Some of the best restaurants for breakfast and lunch in Perth have private dining rooms or areas, which are suited to a small party. However, most venues will arrange a large table and accommodate your arrangements. You could have the guests order directly from the menu or speak to the restaurant manager to arrange a set menu. Most restaurants have special lunch menu offers which will allow them to cater for a larger party quickly and keep the budget of the luncheon reasonable.

Traditionally, the ladies luncheon is held to honour the bridesmaids, so you could use this opportunity to present your bridal gifts to the them and the flower girls. You will also have the opportunity to tell them how much you have appreciated their support and friendship to ensure that they feel special. However, be sure to thank all the ladies for attending especially the mothers of the groom and bride, who have likely helped a great deal with the wedding plans.
