I have been honored the duty of maid-of-honor for my fiance’s sister’s wedding (boy that’s a handful to say). I for sure do not know any of the bridesmaids, but would like to send an email or message to them introducing myself and to get them acquainted with my ideas. i am much younger than all of them and do not want them to look down at me. How and what exactly do I say when I introduce myself. I don’t want to sound like I’m better than them, nor naive. Furthermore, the bride’s wedding is October of 2013, so when should I start introducing myself?

I would say introducing yourself NOW.Give yourself time to possibly form a friendship with them!
Just say something simple like, “Hey girls, since we all might not know each other, we should do lunch together!” Or something like that. You don’t know them, what if there’s another girl that doesn’t know any of the other bridesmaids either? I’m sure they’d all appreciate an opportunity to get to know everyone. I know I’d feel awkward if I didn’t know anyone. I’d be grateful for a period of time dedicated to just us learning about each other.
You even have an icebreaker, talk about how you know the bride. And then move on to maybe some ideas they have for the bachelorette party/ shower/ anything else
You don’t need to even worry about titles like “bridesmaid” or “maid of honor”Just stick with “friends”

I like that idea, ask them all to lunch or out for drinks – something you guys can do together to get to know each other better. A great way to bond and meet each other. 🙂

Thank you very much for all of your ideas !! I will be planning a little luncheon for all the Bridesmaid or Best Man to get to know one another. I appreciate your advice!
