- Wedding: May 2014
Hey, everyone! I apologize if this is long. I am just under 8 1/2 months until my wedding. Can’t believe it’s getting so close! Anyway, I have five bridesmaids, most of which haven’t met because I know them all from completely different places.
First of all, I have planned a “Bridesmaid” night! I wanted to have a night to allow my girls to get to know each other before we start doing wedding stuff. I suggested we go get dinner and then head to a nearby farm that does hay rides and corn mazes. Everyone seemed up for it so we are going to do it! I want to get them some little gifts. This is my night to sort of honor them for being in my wedding and to hopefully build some friendships. Here’s my questions (and there are lots!):
-Where to meet?
Everyone, except for my future SIL, live about 30 minutes away from me. Should we meet at a central location, such as the restaurant? Should they meet at my apartment and then we ride together? There is a strong possibility that we will eat in my city, since theirs do not have any sit down restaurants.
Given the number of us (6), I believe everyone’s car only seats 5. How should we split up driving? There will be a lot of time spent in the car driving to and from our destination. A little background, two of my BMs are absolute best friends, which is great, but I want them to meet my other BMs, who don’t know anyone else really. I don’t want those two to have to drive by themselves, but I also don’t want to throw someone who doesn’t know them at all in the car with two best friends, ya know? Any suggestions?
-Get to know you game?
I know it seems lame, especially since there aren’t many of us. But would a get to know you game help to break the ice? Any suggestions?
