Bridesmaids Luncheon - Palmetto Bluff, SC

Bridesmaids Luncheon - Palmetto Bluff, SC

This cheerful and fun bridesmaids luncheon shoot in Palmetto Bluff, S.C., highlights an experience many brides include leading up to the wedding.

This is an opportunity for the bride to show her appreciation to this important group of ladies and celebrate their role in her life.

Instead of a formal venue or dining room, this bride takes her best girls out for a bike ride to see charming Palmetto Bluff.


The bride dons a white tank-top and gifts the rest of the group with black shirts of their own – a fun way to personalize the event.


Wearing matching outfits also makes for fun photo ops, like this bride and her group of coordinating bridesmaids at the helm of their bikes.


They make their way to a chic picnic under a towering tree where a slightly elevated table is just high enough for the group to dine from the ground.


Fun throw pillows and light fabrics make the spot cozy and sophisticated while lively centerpieces line the center of the table for an elegant touch.


The ladies dine on perfect outdoor offerings like salads, breads and mimosas and toast the bride on her upcoming nuptials.


A luncheon in the middle of South Carolina’s low country is a retreat within itself. Nestled under shade trees with the bright sun shining makes an idyllic location to celebrate the most cherished ladies in your life. Spice it up with bright colors and coordinating outfits to start your wedding festivities off on a brilliant note.
