So hive I need a little advice. As soon as all of my girls accepted being in my bridal party I created a Facebook group to stay in touch so I could bounce ideas off of them. My moh lives right by me but my two maids live 6+ hours away. So about once a week I will post ideas/ updates on Facebook. But one of my maids decided to go on a Facebook break for a month. Basically she wants to cut her time on it so is quiting it for a month to do so. So, I decided we would then email to support her decision but keep the communication. Problem is now I’m not getting all the feedback I did before. But bigger problem another maid doesn’t like the email because apparently her email handles pictures different (the rest of us use gmail). I just went dress shopping and emailed a ton of pictures and none of them loaded for her. I liked the Facebook page because if they saw ideas for me they could share on facebook and we all had conversations about it. So hive, any ideas to get this back on track and respect both maids wishes?? I know we are a year out but these conversations have helped me so much to polish my ideas and even get rid of many duds. Plus I know this helps the girls further away be involved.

Why don’t you continue with the Facebook page, but just email the one Bridesmaid to keep her in the loop. If FB was working for the majority, I’d stick with it. I believe in catering to the majority. Do your best to still include the other Bridesmaid or Best Man, though, you wouldnt want to leave her out!

I am about 10 months into the planning and I was thinking like you- a facebook page or group would be awesome! But I have 7 girls and the trouble is not all of them use facebook often…I have a couple girls who are on it regularly, one girl deactivated her acct, another one it’s easier to text or call, and another one its easiest to email her! lol so I am kind of in the same boat! I still send out facebook messages to all of them, but then I promptly send an email out to the other ones who I know don’t use FB and shoot a text to the others…my experience has been to just go with what communication works most effectively for each bm

Maybe you can convince the other maid to setup a gmail account. That way when the wedding is over her personal email account wont be full of wedding info. I myself like emailing better because Im not a true facebook user either.
