My my moh and bm are the crappiest ever. THey were all arguing about 4 mos ago about what to do for my b-party to the point where my MOh was really stressed out. So i told her to just relax and wait a couple months it didnt need to get planed back in Feb! No now it’s 10 days to go and I get an email today from my Maid/Matron of Honor saying she (finally) called to make a reservation at a resutrant we’d pick but oh guess what they don’t take reseravations for less than 30 people. So our options are go and wait to be seated… that sucks or pick a new place. They can’t send invites until they know what’s happening! This si beyond frustrating. I am so sick of her laziness!

- Wedding: August 2018 - Oakland Manor
My sister’s Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t tell anyone the bachelorette plans till the day before – THE DAY BEFORE. I was pretty irked, but my sister could have cared less, those who showed, showed and everyone still had a nice time.
If that’s typically her planning style I’d take several deep breaths , then several more, since I know I’d be massivley stressed about it. If this is just how she is though, you might just have to try and let it go. le sigh. Depending on other people to get things done is rarely fun. 🙁 Hopefully she’ll get it together and make a plan (and tell everyone about it). Good luck!

This would majorly stress me out too. My BM’s planned my bachelorette party but it didn’t go off without a hitch, and it wasn’t really my style and it stressed me out!
Hopefully they will pick a new place, send out email/phone call invitations and get it all set for you. I wouldn’t worry too much! I’m sure you’re plenty stressed as it is!

I think there are far more worse situations out there. At least she DID try to plan something!
I feel you though, it’s almost like she’s doing a half-*ssed job and that doesn’t look so good on the outside. I hope things do work out in the end – maybe you’ll be surprised!

As a type-A planner, it drives me nuts to sit back and watch other people fail to plan adequately. I feel your pain. 🙂 Try to breathe and remember that nobody is going to judge you for the bachelorette party and it’ll be fun since your good friends will be celebrating with you.

that sucks — I’m sorry your frustrated.
But look at it this way, people usually don’t make reservation until (at most) 2 weeks before, so 1 1/2 weeks before your b-party and she calls doesn’t really seem like laziness. Plus its not her fault they don’t take reservations for under 30 people. i’d say try to grin and bear it, I’m sure your girls will figure something out!

Would it be possible to send out invitations soon (today) and indicate a meeting place for everyone? For example, could everyone meet in a parking garage on the first floor, or a parking lot. If you indicated that this was the meeting location and then dinner, drinks, and debauchery – it would still give you 10 days to decide where you’re going and even if it was last minute, the guests wouldn’t know

Ooh, pvaulter, that’s a good idea.
I was going to say something similar – could you agree to meet for drinks at a set location, and then head out to dinner after? Better yet if the place you wanted has a bar attached, then you can start the night out with drinks there while you wait for a table.

We don’t know now where we wll go, so really do need a resturant decision before we can invite people. And yes the place I watned to go does have a table but I dont want to drink and wait for them to clear space for 15 people for dinner. I am most annoyed becasuse my Maid/Matron of Honor suggested the restaruant 4 weeks ago adn I was really excited about it. Now if it was me, before I suggested it I would have called to see if they’d accommodate a group our size before I suggested it to her, but that’s my style. She cares but is not too great a planner.

Trust me I know where you’re coming from! I’m still having a horrible time with mine! I tried to get them all together to see what they expect from me and what I expect from them and one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man totally took over showing picts and video clippes of her new boyfriend. But I’m not saying this idea wont work for you, give it a try and show a little bit of your bridezilla.
In fact i may try it again lol.
but best of luck! I’m sure things will work them selves out!!!
