My MOH is VERY involved! She has been picking out things and showing me decor ideas and even helping me with my bouquet. I am so glad that I have a great BFF and that she is so active in my planning process.

Well, my MOH was back packing across Australia up until a month before my wedding, so not really at all. 

The rest of the bridesmaids were out of town as well.  They planned my bachelorette party and attended my shower, and two of them helped me out with a couple DIY projects the day before the wedding.

3/4 shopped for BM dresses.  My MOH just went along with what they picked.

They attended the rehearsal and the wedding dressed and ready to go, and that was really all I expected of them.

@2shy2Bbf: Maybe you can ask her exactly what it is she wants to do. My BMs really aren’t that involved in the planning process, mainly b/c I am the “planner” of the group so they would rather leave it in my capable hands. They have shown interest in dress shopping, and they like to get pictures and e-mails to be kept in the loop and give their opinions but that’s it. FI and I are doing all of our planning.

My FMIL is not involved in our wedding planning process. She has offered suggestions/ideas for things that I wasn’t sure about, but that is about it. I think she keeps her distance because she doesn’t want to step on anyone’s toes (my mom’s especially).

Mine MOH wants to be as involved as she possibly can and help me with what ever I need.  I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and her MOH went missing when she needed her most so I made a huge attempt to step in and help when she needed it.  It was a huge amount of un-needed stress on her and she doesn’t want the same to happen to me.

my MOH is not involved at all. no shower, no bach party, and she is not even coming to the rehearsal dinner.

she text me the other day and asked what our wedding colors were because she did not even know.

My MOH lives OOT, so she wasn’t able to do a lot. She planned an amazing shower and bachelorette party, of course picked out her dress, found some random things for me like hair accessories for all the girls, and helped a lot the day of. She asked if she could do more, but I told her not to worry since she’s so far away.

I don’t live near any family, so a lot of them are not very involved.  My MOH (sister) is planning a bachelorette party and possibly co-hosting a shower.  I think I’ll be sending her pics of decor and asking for DJ suggestions, too.  She’s the person I run everything buy for suggestions…but that’s about it.  My FI and I are pretty much doing everything on our own.

I’ve kind of kept my MOH in the dark and I don’t think she’s happy with it. I just don’t know where to include her and I really love going to stuff with my FI.
