I second the idea of having a "fun" raid mixed in with your regular raids. We do a run of naxx two nights out of the week (to gear people up), two nights of Ulduar (7 bosses downed so far!) and one night of raiding Stormwind. We don't kill the king- it's just for fun and to annoy the alliance. Before we started that we would occasionally run a retro raid- like mc or kara. Having the one fun night a week really helps us stay focused on each other instead of just loot and progression.Also, our GM is really adamant about us using vent. One of the requirements of guild membership is having vent and a working mic, and it really helps us to get to know people as "Phillip" instead of "Legoolas."

Yeah, I find Vent is really important. My guild's Vent has channels for raids, instances, PvP and questing, of course, but it also has a Social channel. People will go in there and shoot the breeze when they're not doing anything in particular. Actually hearing your guildmates talk makes people feel closer than just reading words on a screen. And I actually prefer 10-man raids to 25s, just because of the camaraderie and closeness you get in a 10-man group. In a 10-man, if we wipe, we don't get mad. We laugh it off, then rez, repair, wipe hands on pants and try again. Of course, it also helps that I'm in an adult guild where people aren't hardcore about the game.
