Traditionally: The people that will be attending are also invited to the wedding. The party is usually thrown by a maid of honor, the wedding party, or a female relative of the bride. Wedding party members often split the costs, if the wedding party is spearheading.
Traditionally: Something low_key but casually elegant and, ideally, pretty, such as someone's home, garden or backyard, or a restaurant or tea house. Our Take: Keep your budget and abilities in mind. Traveling to Chicago for a fancy brunch makes sense if a lot of attendees live just outside Chicago__but not if you're all based in Florida. Also, don't ditch the backyard just because it seems super traditional. Backyards have the distinct advantage of being free, and there are so many ways to make someone's backyard feel special. You can go with the tried and true__fresh flowers and paper garlands are classics for a reason. Or you can go for the unique_to_them touches__a tropical_themed collection of homemade desserts for your Hawaii_obsessed pal, for example.
