So, you've been asked to be a bridesmaid for your BFF's wedding. Naturally, you're pumped to be able to share her big day with her. You might know a few other people in the bride tribe, and maybe even your friend's sisters — but if you're not super close with the whole crew, don't fret. Knowing all of the essential bridesmaid duties that are coming up, you need to pencil in some time to get to know these ladies. Luckily, there are a ton of fun ways to bond with the other bridesmaids.
When my best friend got engaged, I didn't know half of her bridal party, because it was all of the groom's sisters. It's hard to coordinate things like a bachelorette weekend and wedding shower with people you don't really know. It's also a bit more difficult to express your opinions to people you're not tight with. Bonding activities totally help in these situations, and will also make the overall bridesmaid experience so much more fun, rather than just extra work on your plate.
After all, your bestie loves her bridal party immensely, so you know you'll definitely get along with this crew and make new friendships that could end up lasting a lifetime. And let's be real, these seven things to do with your fellow bridesmaids are just fun activities that you don't need an excuse to do. Everyone is winning here.
