3 Responses to How to Create a Bridal Shower Mimosa Bar

  1. Hi Meredith. I am planning my daughter’s bridal shower & the main thing she wants is a nice mimosa bar. I thank you for all the tips & hints. It will definitely help a novice like me. But three things that you didn’t address that i would appreciate your input on:

    1) What type of champagne do you recommend? I know some people like a little sweeter and some might like a little drier. Any thoughts? Suggestions?

    2) What has been your experience on how many mimosas per person? i was planning on 2 – 3 per person. Does that sound logical?

    3) Finally, how much champagne do you need per mimosa? Wasnt sure if you get about 5 per bottle or more than that. What did you experience with your guests?

    Thank you again for your article and sharing your experience. I am sure it will help me a lot. I look forward to your reply.

    • Hi Mark! All great questions. I am NOT a champagne connoisseur by any means so you might find a better answer to that question somewhere else on the internet, haha. I think I asked someone at the liquor store for some help picking something out, but I don’t remember what kind I got, sorry! I do think 2-3 per person is a good estimate, though it does depend on the crowd. (i.e. college friends will probably drink more than the great aunts!) So take a quick glance at the guest list and take a guess. It’s been two years since this shower so I don’t recall exactly how many pours per bottle we got…but the typical proportions of a mimosa is half champagne and half juice, so you can kind of figure out from there based on the size of your glasses. Of course, it’s always better to have too much rather than not enough. Some wine stores will even let you return unopened bottles, so maybe double check their policy about that when you buy them. I hope that’s helpful! Best of luck with the shower, I’m sure it will be beautiful!

I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
