I’ve never heard of a bridal party meeting.

I know in the south it’s customary to have a bridal tea a few weeks/months before the wedding, but that’s to thank the girls for being a part of your day.

I plan to just keep in touch with my party by email to let them know of important things and if we get together, it’ll be for the shower or bachellorette. if you don’t know what to meet about…why have a meeting?

I think the meetings are important closer to the wedding. I did not have any meetings. I ran into the issue of leaving everything in my fiance hands, and guest what! All of the groomens were clueless on the day of the wedding on what was going on!!! It’s important to run over timelines with them, what they will be wearing, who will be giving a speech, etc. Good luck!

I’ve never heard of this. Are you supposed to discuss top secret wedding stuff? 🙂

This is a great idea! It will give everyone a chance to meet before hand. I tried to do this with my BMs and I kept getting put off. One thing that you should do is to get a pack of index cards (You can get them at the dollar store) and have people exchange contact information. This will be good when it comes time for showers, and bach parties. Also, your MOH and Best Man should be contact people so the rest of the party doesn’t have to keep running to you.

Let them know what to expect now! Tell them what they are responsible to pay for and what you expect from them. That way, there is no “you didn’t tell me that” and there is a room full of witnesses! haha.

Go over the type of affair you are planning and also let them know ahead of time if they are getting plus 1’s and if you want to meet them. (I know it sounds horrible, but I don’t like strangers and I would want to meet someone before hand)

Also get ideas from them. It will be a good bonding experience and will over all add to your wedding memories.

@ModernCinderella: you are going to discuss a problem that you have with ONE groomsmen at a meeting with the other groomsmen? That’s a bad idea. Why not do it in private?

@Miss Tattoo: Oh yeah, I forgot she mentioned that.

@ModernCinderella: I second Miss Tattoo as far as bringing up one Groomsman’s faux pas in front of everyone else. But a meeting in general is a good idea.

I think the meeting sounds fun! I wish everyone in our wedding party was in town so we could do this! I’m not meeting 3 of the groomsmen until the day before the wedding! Crazy!
