I’m having a similar issue, as I haven’t hired a florist or event planner – I’m doing all of my own flowers and centerpieces… So – I asked a group of close friends who are not in the bridal party, to take set-up responsibilty. They happily agreed and I’m doing mock-ups to explain what I expect, and will be available for any questions. As a thank you, they will be acknowledged in the wedding program, and I have special gifts planned, seperate from the BM’s. Sometimes getting it done is as easy as asking for help 🙂

As the pp has suggested, ask someone to take responsibility. Have a mockup done and take pictures for them to follow. They can definitley do it in that time frame.

The things that take time when decorating are hoisting things up to the ceiling. Try to avoid that type of decor and they will have plenty of time.
