You just popped the bridesmaid question to all of your friends—now, how do you connect them? In the digital age, it's easier than ever to keep your wedding party in the loop about all the big day details they need to know. But as wedding planning evolves, so does etiquette… even for something as simple as your bridesmaid group chat.

It's no secret that some sort of digital communication platform is the best way to keep your crew in touch, whether you opt for text messaging, GroupMe, WhatsApp, or even Facebook Messenger. But one of the hardest parts of launching your bridesmaid group chat is simply getting started. What do you name it? What should you say in that first message? How do you break the ice and introduce everyone if they don't all know each other?

If these questions are on your mind, we've created this all-encompassing bridesmaid group chat etiquette guide. Here, we break down whether or not you actually need one, as well as what to say and who's responsible for starting it. And, because a name is the best part of any group chat, we share our favorite bridesmaid group chat names for you to steal as well.

Do You Need a Bridesmaid Group Chat?

First things first: Do you really need a bridesmaid group chat? Surely you and your friends lead busy lives, and being added to plenty of group chats can feel overwhelming at times. While a bridesmaid group chat certainly isn't a wedding planning must, we highly recommend it. After all, this is the easiest way to connect your crew, share wedding updates, and plan logistical details for fun events like the wedding shower, the bach party, and much more. It's also a prime space to share links for matching merch, ideas for prewedding parties, and genius TikTok wedding hacks everyone will love.

How to Start a Bridesmaid Group Chat

Since every bridesmaid has a connection to the bride, it makes the most sense for them to start the group chat—especially considering they have everyone's number. Of course, if you're the to-be-wed and you'd like to pass this off to your maid of honor, you can certainly ask. Generally speaking, though, the person who has a connection to everyone in the group should start the chat.

Once you've finished all of your bridesmaid proposals, kicking off your group can be as easy as creating the chat with a simple message:

Hi everyone! Welcome to my wedding party :) Making this group so we can all stay connected!

However, if not everyone in your wedding party knows each other, it may be helpful to add an ice breaker to your welcome message.

Hi everyone! Welcome to my wedding party :) Not everyone in this group chat has met before, but I can't wait to introduce you all in real life! In the meantime, I'd love it if you can share your name so everyone has your contact.

Or, if you're a maid of honor or bridesmaid who's taking over group chat duties, say something like this:

Hi everyone, welcome to [bride's name] wedding party group chat! I'm making this group so we have a place to connect and chat about details for the shower, bachelorette party and more. Can you all share your name, that way anyone who doesn't have your number saved knows who's who? Thank you!

After making the first introduction, we also recommend bringing your crew together for an in-person activity, like brunch, a spa day, or a movie night. This is especially helpful if you have a large wedding party, or if members of your crew haven't met before. As the common denominator, it's up to you to facilitate the introductions and help everyone feel welcome in your group. Not only will this connect your friends, it's the best way to set expectations and get everyone on the same page before you get deep into the planning process.
