Wedding planning isn’t always easy, but thankfully a bride can lean on her bridesmaids to make sure everything comes together flawlessly for the big day. To say thank you, it’s a tradition for the bride to throw a bridal luncheon in the days leading up to the wedding.
But, let’s be honest, a luncheon is so ten years ago! So, we’re sharing our favorite Denver hot spot, The Kitchen, where you can throw your best girls an unforgettable bridal brunch. Bubbles and all!
The Kitchen is conveniently situated in the historic Sugar Building on the 16th Street Mall, footsteps away from the area’s most popular attractions including; Union Station, The Pepsi Center, The Dairy Block, and Coors Field. If your wedding is downtown, this location couldn’t be more perfect. Invite your bridesmaids for a celebratory family-styled brunch with all your favorite savory and sweet treats, and of course, tasty craft libations that suit everyone’s likings.
A bridal brunch (or luncheon) shouldn’t be stressful. That’s why we recommend opting for the family-style option. A family-style service encourages conversation and laughter. Relax and appreciate these special moments with your friends.
Start with a toast to your bridesmaids while you munch on a charcuterie board and take fun photos with custom props.
Depending on your party size, The Kitchen in downtown Denver offers two event spaces, The Chef’s Room (semi-private with private patio) and The Wine Room, for celebrating in private. Both options allow you to decorate the space to your liking. This allows the bride or host of the party to keep the brunch within budget.
Looking to give the room a little pop of color but don’t want to break the bank? Work with your wedding florist to utilize a few of your wedding centerpieces or bouquets at your bridal brunch and rehearsal dinner.
When you’re ready to be seated, The Kitchen servers will bring out the first few courses. Pass the plates around so you can get a taste of everything. You won’t be disappointed because The Kitchen is dedicated to serving delicious, real food sourced from American farmers. And, be sure to leave room for dessert, we hear they make a mean Maple Glazed Donut.
While it’s definitely a tradition at the bridal brunch for the bride to gift her best gals something special like a monogrammed scarf or tote bag they can use at the wedding, we’re never opposed to spoiling the bride-to-be one last time! Consider this one-of-a-kind piece, a beautiful diamond initial to match her first name or new last name. Designed by Denver local, Kellie Stonger Fine Jewelry, this statement piece will be a keepsake to the bride for years to come.
Before departing, be sure to munch on a few bites from the assorted dessert table paired with cocktail of your choice. We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off your wedding weekend than a morning well spent with good company, drinks and eats. So be sure to roll the good vibes from the celebration into all of the evening festivities!
