Whether you want to send out invitations before the wedding or do a casual invite through email and phone calls is entirely up to you. It may be harder to find an invitation specifically stating that the brunch is in honor of the bridesmaids, but you can always customize to fit your needs.

The bridal party decor can be as simple or extravagant as you want. Generally, you'll want to keep it casual so guests don't feel like they're attending another wedding extravaganza, but of course, it's entirely up to you and what you think they'll enjoy. A backyard setting with a few tables and brunch bars works nicely and you can include little handmade details for an extra special feel. Not into crafting? That's what Etsy's for! Another idea: put all those beautiful gifts you received from friends and family (dinnerware/trinkets/champagne glasses) to good use.

Of course the food is the most important part (aside from the guests!) and when it comes to brunch, the sky's the limit. Pancakes, bacon, waffles, quiche, cereal, biscuits, bagels, fruit, ham, omelettes, sandwiches, donuts, salad, oatmeal, yogurt, french toast, coffee, juice, mimosas...
