I don’t – I mean, if they ask, I do, but no not really. One of my bridesmaids is planning her own wedding, one of them has a toddler, and the other is pregnant. We talk about it when we talk, but I’m not emailing them about every detail – they’re all busy people with their own lives!

I’m inclined to think that me, my FI, and my mother are the 3 people who are REALLY into every detail, and other than that, I try to keep my wedding chat low key and “need to know”.

@MrsWinTraining2014:  Unfortunately, no. One is my younger cousin who is still in high school and busy with that and her friends. My MOH is moving across the country after just completing her PT Boards and graduating from graduate school. She doesn’t really have much time to ‘talk wedding’. My hairdresser always asks but I dislike talking about it. I don’t know why.

Nope. I just told them when we were going dress shopping and the date of the wedding and shower my aunts throwing. I don’t need to bother them with unnecessary details I would care less about as a BM.

I did when they asked about how things were going. One of my BMs was planning a wedding at the same time as me, so the conversation was natural.

Yes, but mostly with my MOH, who has been my BFF since 5th grade. If she werent interested in updates, I wouldn’t share nearly as much.

@MrsWinTraining2014:  I do, but only as it comes up.  Wedding planning is kind of fun, so why not include them if they’re interested?

I tell three out of five everything, but mostly because we talk more often than I do with the other two.  My two local BMs have gone dress shopping with me.  My one Pinterest-active bridesmaid and I share a Pinterest board for my wedding decor.

No. We talked all together about wedding stuff one time – to pick out their dresses. If they asked I gave them a quick update but tried not to obsess too much. That was saved for my DH Laughing

Only when asked.  I have one friend planning her wedding at the same time for 3 months after me.  I’m pushing her a bit to make decisions by telling her how hard it was to find available vendors.  She was kind of dragging her feet, and I knew I was having trouble booking already she would be too.

At the beginning I talked about the wedding plans a lot with my bridesmaids (you know, because they’re my good friends and all) but after a couple weeks I started getting this inkling that I was being annoying, so I stopped.  For the rest of my engagement, I only told them things on a need-to-know basis or if they specifically asked about something.  It kind of sucked to have to reign in the excitement, but it’s true what other says – no one is as excited about your wedding day as you are.

Not really. If we were talking about other stuff and they asked how planning was going I’d share what had recently been decided or what I was currently working on. But it’s not like I called them all up when I picked my dress or booked the caterer or anything like that.

I tell my bridesmaids everything! They’re super into all the planning details and will be helping me with invites/placecards/decor… Plus, I value their opinions and love their input.

All of my bridesmaids are close friends so I update them on how the planning is going when I see them for coffee, etc. We also have a Facebook message group and I messaged them about my dress and my wedding ring, as well as their dresses and hen party plans. 🙂
