Ask Claudia: Bridal Party Fun in Eastern Long Island

Jump to Comments

Katherine, Wading River

Q: I live out in Wading River and I am getting married at East Wind. I am trying to come up with a bridesmaid brunch/ luncheon or other idea to thank my bridesmaids the day before the wedding (right before the rehearsal dinner). Any ideas?

A: Katherine, congrats on your upcoming wedding.  And how great that you want to thank your friends in this way.  I have a few ideas for you to consider.  First, since you’re getting married at East Wind, how about having a spa day right on site for your girls?   They offer a number of bridal packages, so you can all relax, get lush spa treatments and bond.   Another idea is to take the group on a wine tour.  You can do this by contacting Long Island Wine Tours, which sets up transportation in addition to tours, where you can have lunch and sample wine.   Lastly, how about a day of shopping at Tanger Mall?  If you go this route, do buy gift certificates for shopping beforehand.  This will be an added treat for your best friends.  Enjoy and let us know which one you decide on…
