@brenish:  Hi! Personally, I don’t think you’re wrong to be feeling this way. While I understand that people are busy or doing things in their own lives, as a wedding party member it is your duty when you accept the role to be involved and help out. Especially since you haven’t been able to see them in so long they should be eager to be there. Your best friend or friend only usually gets married once and while it may be a busy time, you make time. As overwhelming and crazy as it may be it will all be over soon so just get it done girls! I hope that someone comes through for you because this should be a very happy exciting time for you. Maybe you could just remind them that its only a few days out of their schedule and then they can resume normal life. Hopefully they understand. Good luck!

@brenish:  I think that telling them that you’re only able to do this for a few days and you really need their help won’t make you a bridezilla at all. They’re your friends and you would look out for them if the situation was reversed. They may just not know how you’re feeling and if you’re honest and just say that you’re stressed and you’re sad because you aren’t enjoying the wedding planning experience and that you need help, they will probably understand.

My SO is in the military and we’re going to start planning our wedding but I know it’s pretty much just going to be me planning it because he will be preoccupied. I think that people who aren’t heading into that type of a situation or were not in that circumstance when they planned their wedding may not really factor that in automatically so they may just not realize how much you have on your plate with the wedding.

It’s okay to directly ask for support. If I were you I wouldn’t let them know that I was angry but I would just tell them about it being hard and feeling down about it and then ask them to be more helpful (in a way that encourages them to respond positively).

Good luck!
