I feel you might be overthinking it, just because at almost every wedding I’ve been to, the bride has been pulled in so many different directions- the ping pong effect seems inevitable. 🙂 How many guests are you having? If you have a receiving line, or stop by every table to greet your guests, that’s enough. While you are the hostess, you’re not responsible for entertaining your guests that night, nor will you be responsible for introducing your friends.

What I’m doing with all bridal party get togethers is I am having a basket where everyone’s phones go and they don’t get touched all day/night we are together.  No outside distractions, just girltime!  People rely too much on their phones anyway, so maybe that will help 🙂

I have the added complication of worrying about one of his friends ‘outing’ him to his family (if they mix).  All his friends know he’s bisexual, none of his family do. And they are pretty homophobic. 


If I had my way, it would be me and Fiance on a beach with our two best friends. No family,  no drama…
