My Maid/Matron of Honor got engaged on New Year’s and has just asked me to be a part of her bridal party! I’m so excited for her and can’t wait to help! These past couple of days, I’ve felt like the donkey in Shrek. You know the part where he’s jumping up and down behind a crowd saying, “Me! Me! Pick Me!”? I was so happy to be chosen as a bridesmaid. Planning my own wedding has given me a lot of knowledge about weddings and has given me a new excitement for other people’s weddings. I hope I won’t come off as a crazy person, but I seriously would love to be there for every aspect of the planning. Did anyone else have very enthusiastic bridesmaids? Did you appreciate their help or did you wish they would have backed off some?

Congrats!! My Maid/Matron of Honor was actually very excited. She put together this list of duties and everything lol. I think its kinda cool when bridesmaids show so much enthusiasm.

@Soon2BeMrsPea: That’s good to hear! I know I would have really appreciated a bridesmaid who wanted to be so involved. I think it’s easier to be excited for someone else when you are getting married too.

My Maid/Matron of Honor has been amazing. She just got married in June, so she’s a newlywed herself. She’s been helping out a TON, and she wants to be around for everything. She’s awesome. My other local BMs have been very enthusiastically helping out, too. My Out of Town girls aren’t so much, but I think it’s mostly just the distance, and they’d be helping out all the time if they could. I <3 my BMs.
