I am becoming increasingly frustrated with my situation with my BMs. I love them all to death (the best ladies ever), but I am having a problem talking about the wedding with them. My big sis is my Maid/Matron of Honor, and she is super into wedding details, but right now she is in the middle of planning her wedding which is in May. My mom is also in full blown wedding planning mode for my sister’s wedding so I can’t hit her with the details of mine too. Two of my ladies are out of towners and I don’t want the few times that we do get to chat to be me blabbing on about wedding stuff and them just listening. My final Bridesmaid or Best Man is my FI’s sis, but she is only 15 and doesn’t know too much about weddings although she is excited.
Does anyone have any suggestions for letting them know when we make big decisions so they don’t feel out of the loop, while avoiding being that girl that won’t shut up about her wedding?

Maybe make a Facebook group and post updates?

I agree with the facebook group thing, or maybe just a weekly email for people to offer advice? Luckily your wedding seems to be far enough apart from your sisters that you don’t have to worry about all the same things at once.
Will your sister and mother be game to help you with your wedding after may? I think if I were you i would just bounce the detail ideas off bees and only deal with the major decisions with your mom and sis. (venue, dress, colours) Everything else can wait until may.

I would probably just send out email when you make the big decisions such as booking a venue, picking your dress, deciding on Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, invites, etc. I probably wouldn’t send a weekly email, but an update email every once and while would be a good idea I think.

I would recommend a FB page or a mass e-mail! We also have a wedding website that includes lots of info (but nothing personalized)
