That’s a good idea. I have considered doing the same. Sorry I don’t have any advice but let me know what you come up with!

@proverbs131:  You could have each BM write out a card with something about herself that the others won’t know e.g ” I won the state championship for backstroke when I was 12.”

Allow some time for the girls to chat and get to know each opther, but they are not allowed to ask the direct question ” Did you win the state championship for backstroke when you were 12″? Then you give them a card to match up the girls with the answer.

The BM who gets the most correct matches wins a prize.

@julies1949:  That is a really good idea! 

 

@proverbs131:  I don’t have such a list but getting them to sign up then is a good idea. Be sure to also pass out some sort of information sheet with everyone’s contact details/have them fill one out if you need that info.

@proverbs131:  I would think twice about getting them to sign up for duties. Hosting a shower is entirely their choice, not yours. Ditto with any offer to help with DIY’s of any sort.

@julies1949:  Given that the OP is a bridesmaid, not the bride herself, I thought that this would be ok?

@Everdeen:  Sorry, poor memory. I still think this is something the BM’s should discuss amongst themselves, not in front of the bride. That would make it a little awkward for anyone who had a dissenting opinion to speak up.

@julies1949:  No worries! Just thought I’d check. That’s a good point, perhaps the bride can be sent somewhere or the bridesmaids stay a little later or something seeing as it sounds like the they won’t all be together very often during the process.

@proverbs131:  I did a Meet the Maids dinner for my girls and they all loved it! I think julies1949 Had a great idea and I would try that! As for the sign up sheet, I would skip that. Being that the wedding is over a year away I wouldn’t force the girls into planning anything right now. And I think the things about the shower should be a group decision. I have found people don’t do well when they are told what to do really. I would wait a while and have another get together to specifically talk about planning the shower. Then you could bring up ideas and ask for volunteers. 

also is the bride going to make you the MOH? I would be Leary of doing all this work if you’re just a bridesmaid. I went through that myself and it makes you awfully  Resentful at times.
