Right, so your VMs are on the same bridge group now (at Layer2 of OSI).

Have you verified connectivity to the VMs' default gateway?
Does the ARP (address resolution protocol) process succeed?
arp -a | grep <Default_Gateway_IP_here>
You may not have a NIC connected to your physical network in that bridge
If so you need to modify your network-scripts to make that happen
automatically on boot.
You do not necessarily need an IP address on your bridge interface unless
the VM host is acting as a router (default gateway).
Here's an example:
~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-XX_br0
You can temporarily add an interface to the bridge group for testing
brctl addif <bridge> <interface>

An additional command to run to verify your Ethernet bridge(s) operation is:
brctl show <bridge>
~]# brctl show XX_br0
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
XX_br0 8000.00151713fdbc no p1p1
