Just wondering how much help people got from their BMs? Did you ask them to scout for bands, vendors etc.? The only reason I ask I’m in Oz and getting married in UK and could do with some eyes on the ground etc. I know its not expected for BMs to help in anyway, apart from turn up on the day.

waddle: We were in France and got married in the UK. None of DH’s family live there either so my parents and my sister did a lot of stuff for us. My sister was my only Bridesmaid or Best Man (as most of my close friends were not in the UK either and I didn’t want dress choosing hassle etc) She sent me pics of venues and when we picked one we liked, she went with my parents to check it out. We then were in email contact and we had a couple of trips over to make final decisions. Obviosuly will not be as easy for you being in Oz but distance planning is def doable. Good luck!

waddle: you know your girls best… ask them if they’d be willing to help.
