Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) but she doesn’t really help too much with anything. I know she is not OBLIGATED to but I think it would be nice to have someone there with me through everything. Anyone else having this problem?

Mine lives 3000 miles to the east… and my wedding is 3000 miles to the west of me! Needless to say, she hasnt done much but I guess I cant really expect her to. Every other month or so she says, “I feel like Im not doing anything, I dont want to disappoint you.” But she never does anything about it… I’ve gotten used to doing it all on my own.

I have two MOHs. They can’t really do to much because they live in other states; however, one of them is making our bouquets and they both plan to come visit for a week prior to the wedding to help me finish up things. I hope to have everything done by then though. I am type A, so I have set ways I want things done, so the best way is usually for me to just do it myself. It really doesn’t bother me that they aren’t very helpful. I know that if they lived closer they would try to be better.

I was just going to post something about this! My Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) decides when she wants to help and when she doesn’t (which is quite often). I know she loves me however-it’s like pulling teeth trying to get her to help. Fortunately-some of my other BMs and my wonderful family are stepping up. Hope things get better!!

The duties of a Maid/Matron of Honor, unless agreed in advance, are to show up on the wedding day dressed according to your specifications. That’s all–no involvement in planning or throwing parties is required.
And realistically, no matter how much they love you, some people are much less interested in weddings than others. And no one will be as interested in your wedding as you are.

Hey, at least your sister is coming right? My sister (a BM) hasn’t gotten her dress, hasn’t responded to any emails (lives on the other side of the country also) & I’m pretty sure she’s doing that to avoid telling me she’s not even coming.. Just tell me now so I can move on!
