My sister (maid of honor) informed me 3 days before the wedding that she got a new job. So i havent had any help. My other bridesmaid (I only have 2) had 4 strokes last month and cant drive or anything (thank god she is still living!!!!) SOOOO….I feel like I am riding this out solo! I am so overwhelmed and my wedding is Saturday. All I have to help me keep my insanity is my handy LISTS that I have written a million times! I am decorating the reception Friday night and I will have help then but I feel like there are soooo many things I need help with-and my house is a WRECK so I will be spending the rest of the night cleaning because I don’t want to come home to a dirty house (plus my fiances brother is staying here while we are gone). I have so much packing to do, and our tuxs arent supposed to be here til tomorrow which is stressing me out even more. I got a spray tan yesterday and I feel ilke I am orange! Sorry had to rant. Is anyone else doing this pretty much alone? My mom hasnt done anything but pay for the cake. My dad paid half of my dress. And my sister made my birdseed throwers. I am having a DIY wedding on top of it all. So I am doing EVERYTHING and im about to lose my mind!

@ashleyk_xox: oh you poor thing, that is horrible. Can your FI help by tidying the house?

What’s your FI doing? Seems like he could clean up at least.

@ashleyk_xox: Where is your FI? That is the only person that NEEDS to be helping you and not necessarily bridesmaids

@ashleyk_xox: You are almost there! Take a deep breath, in a few days you’ll be a happily married woman and all of this wedding drama will be behind you.
But I completely feel you. No help here either. It’s stressful and it sucks, but you’re not alone.

I’m sorry 🙁 I don’t have a wedding party so I often feel similar. My FI has helped with the decision making, but I definitely feel you on the DIY projects and things like that. It’s tough.

My FI and I live in two different states, my sisters (the ones in state) are in school and don’t have extra time to help me, I’m DIY-ing nearly everything, and I don’t even have a bridal party or friends who can help. Fortunately, I’ve got a few months to go, so I can spread out the wedding projects a bit, but I completely understand where you’re coming from! Tons of hugs and well wishes are going your way.
I wish I lived near you so I could help out.

I’m right there with you! I did 99% of the planning and DIY alone. Which I was fine with. We just informed the bridal party a week ago that they nee to be at the venue at 8 am to decorate and my sister threw a fit and refuses to come until noon. I was so ticked at her because she has done nothing, she didn’t even hav to buy her dress. But in the end you just have to let it go and trust that the many months of planning will work out and if one or two small details get missed it won’t matter and no one will notice but you.
