Have a meet and greet! Grab lunch or drinks. It doesn’t need to be a “meeting” just a chance to get together aNd meet each other 🙂

@Nic01:  don’t call it a meeting. Just invite them for drinks & apps or something casual.

I had a get together for all my maids so they could all meet each other.  I also wanted to make sure they understood what was important to me and what I wanted and didnt want.  I’ve seen brides on here say there wedding party didn’t throw them a shower or a Bach. So I nipped it in the bud and we discussed all the fun things we were going to do!!! And it was an excuse to see my friends and drink some wine!

As long as you don’t make the entire meeting about the wedding it should be fine. Simply outline your expectations, timeline but also ask if they have any concerns. but keep it light hearted. This should be a fun day where you catch up on their lives to.

@Nic01:  I might send a group message so they could add each other. Then they could talk in case they want to organize something.

I had a little “get to know each other” party at one of the BM’s house. First messaged each girl individually to see if she’d be interested (all said yes) and then invited them all. We had some cocktails and desserts, then I briefly went over some logistics and asked if any girls had any questions (none did) and then we just hung out and played cards for humanity and had more wine. It was awesome and fun and I’m so glad I did it before girls who don’t all know each other were all in their undies in one room getting ready together the day of the wedding. 🙂
