Bridesmaids should be put in touch with each other early and then kept abreast of all the wedding plans as they develop. To keep them in the loop, send out a letter complete with all the fine points they will need to know.
Begin by listing the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all the bridesmaids (they will be thankful when it comes time to plan the shower). Also include a photograph of the bridesmaid dress, a swatch of the fabric, any information about fittings, and a photo or sketch of the bridesmaid shoes. Finally, a few fond words from the bride will make them feel special -- as all VIPs should!
