    Sometimes giving people too many options allows too much opportunity for conflict…

    Sorry!!

    How many BMs do you have? Because if you only have a few, it would be easier talking to them in person rather than having them do a survey. I think a survey is a bit too impersonal for a bridesmaid-bride relationship

    I think it’s a neat idea – especially if you have many bridesmaids and they don’t live near you. If it were annonymous then they also may be more comfortable answering questions about dress price… etc.

    But – you also run the risk of your BMs thinking that you are over-organized and a little bit crazy! Maybe call one of your BMs and ask her what she thinks of the idea?

    @pinkbride2012:  I think it’s sweet you want their input – but with 6, that could get a little crazy.

    I think an emailed update and/or newsletter type thing would be better – to keep them posted with planning, expectations, etc…. you can obviously ask for opinions, but I think that’s better done in person.  I think you are more prone to hurt feelings if you end up picking an option that wasn’t voiced – and with 6 voices, you are bound to disappoint someone.  

    IMO, BM’s are willing to bend to the bride’s choices (within reason) and are happy to make the bride happy (like with dress color, etc.).

    For 6 BMs, yes, it’s a great idea.

    @pinkbride2012: is your date really august 2012?  if so, i would hold off on doing anything like this for a while… people’s budgets, etc can chance a whole lot in 16 months

    Google all the way!  If I were one of them, I’d be happy you were asking for my input.  I think it’ll be very useful to get that many girls’ opinions in a concise fashion.
