Grounding The Bridge?

Hi,

I am building a guitar and the wiring kit I purchased requires me to ground the bridge. However, I cant seem to get any solder to adhere to the bottom of the bridge, I even filed it and drilled a small hold, but without success. It is some shiny metal (maybe chrome?) that wont adhere. Would there be bad consequences if I did not ground the bridge in the final assembly?

For reference, i am using this bridge:

Thanks

Place the wire under the bridge, having the bridge keep it in place. I´ve seen people not soldering the ground wire, and it doesn´t seem to affect.

Another option would be to buy a small tube of conductive epoxy. I haven't tried it, don't know how it would work.
