Do you have any suggestions for keeping everyone in your wedding party in the loop and up to date? My FI wants to create an event on facebook. I thought this was great, until he said he only wants it to be for the groomsmen. “guys cant be guys with the girls there…” (which also means more work for me, because he’ll be asking me what info they need to know…)
Ooookay then. So what did you guys do?

We didn’t have a huge wedding party and there really wasn’t a whole lot to tell them so I communicated with my bm’s by email and my husband just called his men. Pretty simple.

I just call or text the BM. He does the same for his GM. I just tell him when I want him to tell them something.
You’re pretty far out though from your wedding, what all is there to plan? I don’t have to get ahold of them too much yet, recently it’s only been centered around what date we want to go look for BM dresses. But some of them I talk to a few times a week anyway on the phone so we will always end up discussing a few things during that time. It’s usually easier just to use the phone.

@kes18: Nothing really just yet. But none of them are very close to us and theyre all good friends with lots of questions already lol. More of a thinking ahead thing than anything.

Email thread! We might to a private FB group as we get closer.
We have 4 girls and 5 guys in the party, but everyone is all over the East Coast.

He keeps in touch with the groomsmen through phone or facebook, and I’m the same with the bridesmaids. Luckily we’re going easy on our bridal party, so all they’ve been asked to do so far is get clothes to wear on the day. There’s nothing else for them to know other than “Show up on the day wearing the clothes,” and they all seem to know that anyway.

Simple emails work great.
