Your bridesmaids aren't your minions -- they're your best friends! Whether your girlfriends are married, engaged or single, they don't want to hear about your wedding every time you get together over dinner and drinks, so take time to ask about their jobs, hobbies and the men in their lives, too.

Start a tradition of scheduling regular girls' nights out, like getting together to see the newest chick flick at the movie theater, or singing karaoke at your favorite dive bar downtown. Get in the habit of making time for your best friends right away so you won't get too consumed by newlywed bliss to stay in touch later on.
