Yep, it makes sense!  My first BM’s get together I told them the colors I had picked out, what I was thinking for the dress…and showed them a little collage of pictures I had put together to show them the ideas I had in my head 🙂 I didn’t want the first get together to be too crazy, so I kept it simple and then we just enjoyed lunch and everyone got aquainted 🙂

I really didnèt do this, but I would think you should talk about colours and maybe start looking at dress styles.

I kind of did all of this over e-mail, but yes, definitely colors, dresses, timeline, that kind of stuff.  The only thing I did do was have my MOH come over a day before the wedding so that she understood how my bustle worked.

I did this over a facebook group. We don’t really have anything to talk about yet but I plan to ask for their availabilty for bridesmaid dress shopping then maybe little stuff closer to the day. It depends what you’re asking them to do. The only thing we’ll be going over is their dresses because that’s all I want them to do.

Wow, you’re a year out from your wedding.  Why are you doing this so soon?

The first time we were together was for dress shopping. I talked to them each seperately about colors and schedules.  I didn’t really know what I liked until I saw it.  we had a super fun day together looking for dresses.  We went to 4 stores and had coffee and drink in between and then went out for a huge dinner.  Id try to keep the focus on fun!  Make them excited to be your bridesmaids- it will be a lot more fun for you

Yep, it really means a lot in this process. You guys can reach an agreements of the colors and styles of the suit you are going to choose.
