BRIDAL PARTY BONDING

By | Inspiration | No Comments

Concerned that your bridesmaids aren’t quite hitting it off? The tone of your bridal party can make or break your wedding day. Here are some suggestions on how to tighten those bonds to help your wedding day be enjoyable for all:

1. Connect or reconnect them through social media

Create a Pinterest board and invite your bridemaids to join in by pinning ideas on dresses, the bridal shower, and of course the bachelorette bash! Create a closed Facebook group where your bridal party can keep in touch and keep track of upcoming dates. Have them re-introduce themselves and list some funny facts or hobbies. This will also provide you with with a common space where your bridal party can share photos from the shower or bridal brunch, fun articles, and more.


2. Plan an inexpensive hangout before the wedding

Provide a time for them all to get to know each other better. Order in your favorite food, and invite your bridal party over for a sleepover! Taste test your wedding wine or signature cocktail together, and rent your favorite classic wedding movies to watch and share some laughs. Father of the Bride, Bridesmaids, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, My Best Friend’s Wedding, 27 Dresses, and Runaway Bride are some of our favorites!


3. Work on a project together.

Set them to work on a project for your wedding. Do you have a DIY craft you need done? Need help addressing thank you notes or invitations? Are there centerpieces to make? Giving your bridesmaids a common project to work on will help to unify your bridal party while checking a few things off your wedding “To Do” list.


4. MOH to the rescue.

Your Maid of Honor has a very important role in both helping you on your big day and organizing your bridesmaids. If tensions are high, she may need to do some damage control for you. Be open and honest if you feel there is something that needs to be addressed. There might be some bridesmaid drama you need to ask her to deal with.


5. Address the issue.

Realize this is your big day, and your bridesmaids should be able to stick it out for you (at least for the day). If they are having an issue with each other, encourage them to work it out (for you!). This is your big day, and they should try to do everything to make it comfortable and stress-free for you. If one bridesmaid in particular is causing unnecessary drama, you may need to ask her to step down in order to benefit the whole group. Understand there are many other roles she can fill on your big day. Even if she isn’t your bridesmaid, you can still give her a special role to play. On your wedding day, ultimately you want to be surrounded by friends and family who are working together to support you so you can relax and have a great time.
