- Wedding: December 1969
Hello! My name is Laura and I am new around here 🙂
Next Friday I am hosting a Bridesmaids Girls Night In because some of my bridesmaids don’t know any of the other girls and I want everyone to get to know each other! I have 8 girls and 7 of them are able to make it (one lives out of state).
We are going to start with appetizers and cocktails. I really don’t have too many ideas for these yet except making carmelized salami (it’s so good!). I am hoping to come up with at least 5 appetizers and 2 cocktails. Any ideas are appreciated.
I do have some silly/cheesy games planned, but none of them really help the girls get to know each other. Any thoughts on this? I would love to pair the girls off so they get a chance to talk one-on-one but I’m not sure what game or activity could incorporate this.
We are then going to move on to desserts and champagne. Again, not sure which desserts to choose! During this time I thought we could get into some wedding stuff. I am going to have sketch paper, colored pencils, and crayons and have the girls each sketch what they would like the bridesmaid dresses to look like.. just for fun! Then I have a TON of wedding magazines so I was thinking of getting a small posterboard for each girl and we can go through wedding magazines and they can make their own inspiration boards for me!
I also am going to have Bridesmaids the movie on DVD in case we’d like to watch it, and I will have a variety of non-wedding-related board games if anyone would like to play a game! At some point in the night, my out of town bridesmaid will make an appearance via iPad so she can meet everyone as well!
Finally, I am getting a small cosmetic bag for each girl and so far I know I am going to put in it:
1. Each girls favorite candy
2. Lip Gloss
3. Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer
4. A picture of the groomsman that the girl will be walking with along with a few facts about him… this is how the girls are finding out who their escort is!
I want to put a few more cute things but I’m running out of ideas!!
That pretty much sums it up. Any cute ideas I can add are very much appreciated.. I am stressing out!!!! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
