Some brides end up with a huge bridal party and it can become very difficult to keep everyone informed and up to date. Have you thought about simple and effective ways to communicate with your bridal party?
Group chats are by far the easiest way to communicate with all your party at once. This will save the hassle of having to message everyone individually. Facebook is always a good option as you can start a group chat or create an event where you can let everyone know what’s going on as well as getting ideas and feedback.
Another idea would be a Whatsapp group. This could be better as messages will go straight to your phone. Not everyone has Facebook so Whatsapp is a better way of being able to get all of your bridal party involved. The good news is, it’s free and can be downloaded onto any smartphone!
Either way a group chat is perfect for giving your party regular updates. Being quick and easy to use, you will be able to plan events, day trips out and is a great way of telling your wedding party important dates, locations and addresses. Messages are instant so if there are any last minute changes or cancellations you can be guaranteed to get the message sent to your friends and family within perfect time. Remind your party of dates, times and addresses so no one forgets with a quick text reminder.
Sharing photos is important when planning events and a group chat or event is a quick and easy way of sharing photos. This way you can make sure to show everyone and get plenty of comments, feedback and ideas. Not sure on colour or flower options? Share a photo and get everyone to take a vote! A great example for this would be going into a shop and you see some “slippers”, share a photo and see if anyone wants one while you’re there!
If you have bridesmaids from out of town that not everyone has met, a group chat is perfect to introduce everyone before the big day. You could even do a little icebreaker to make everyone feel relaxed, comfortable to get involved.
Bridesmaids can have a separate group chat of their own so they can plan a bridal shower and hen do without the bride knowing. This is great for those who work or don’t live close. Make plans, organized jobs and roles to make the brides wedding extra special. Take the pressure off the bride by all the bridesmaids working together.
This may be a little off topic but why not have a game at the wedding? Text your bridal party a list of photos you want them to take. It could be anything from the first kiss, first dance, the meal or something silly! Whatever you want to see, get your guest to take as many photos as possible so you can remember every detail for years to come. They could even work in groups.
So there you have it, easy ways to communicate with your bridal party. Make sure everyone gets introduced and gets involved!
