When you need to do some planning with your wedding party, do you gather the group together to chat it out, or do you send around a group text or email? Are most of your wedding party communiques online or IRL?

    As of right now, almost everything has been online. Every time that I am home I see my maid of honour and we speak lots and lot of wedding.. so around 50/50

    Mostly online, with the occasional talk of the wedding in person, whenever I do see them!

    Both, majority of my wedding party is out of town so we text and talk on the phone. The one that is local we meet in person fairly regularly.

    We had a meeting with almost all the entire party but most of the rest was done via text or through our facebook group. Alot easier since all the information was meant for more than one person

    Mostly online... haven't needed much communication yet about actual wedding stuff. I got them connected with each other through FB messenger. I work with my sister (MOH), so I talk to her in person a lot. And I talk about it with my bridesmaids whenever I see them.

    Honestly, my 3 bridesmaids & mom are from 4 different cities, so it's way easier just to communicate online.

    Aside from my sister (in Australia) everyone else I communicate IRL because they are all family!

    IRL as they were close by and in town. I like to know that phone calls make it feel that much more personal letting them know.

    I use online (facebook group) to communicate, although my one bridesmaid lives in an area without wifi (provincial park) and limited cell service until the end of October.

    Online, we live too far to do it in person.

    I haven't planned much yet but I assume that we will use a group chat and if somebody doesn't reply then I will reach out to them by phone call. If it's something where we need to plan the bachelorette or help me with the social then it would be in person.

    Of course as to ask them to be in the wedding party I asked them a month or so ago (and told them closer to the one year mark I will make them those cute proposal boxes even though they already said yes - you only get married once after all! (hopefully)).
