All BMs OOT

So 5 out of my 6 bridesmaids live far away. How are you girls with long distance BMs planning Bridal Showers, Bachelorette parties ect...? I would hate to have to cram it all into one weekend, but there may be no other choice!

    I had three BMs - well 2 and a MOH.  2 lived OOT.

    I had one bridal shower closer to my hometown, where my MOH lived so my mom could attend.  Only my MOH attended (out of the BMs).   I had a bridal shower in Dallas, thrown by one of my BMs.  Only that BM attended.  My bachelorette party was thrown by a friend and only the BM that lived in town attended.

    Unless your BMs are willing to travel for each event, you might have to do it all in one weekend.

    I had 3 out of 4 BMs that were out of town (one in Houston, one in FL and one in Boston).  They planned my shower and bach party in the same weekend, which was fine with me.  I was just so happy to have all of them in town at the same time.

    One of my BM's was OOT, and to be honest, all she did was show up to the shower and the wedding.

    I guess I should just be thankful that maybe that means the BM drama can be kept to a minimum!

    serlace- I know right! you can't get any group of girls together and expect it to be drama free! I swear none of my girls like each other.

    I only have one now but originally had two.  They looked online for a few dresses then each went locally and tried on and took pictures.  I am not having a shower or bach party because my MOH can only come in the day before so we just dont have time.  I would recommend either doing them all in one weekend or doing a few seperate depending on their locations.
