drummgurl:  I went through almost the same situation. We were doing everything all by ourselves. We paid for it ourselves. As for my MOH, yeah, the bridesmaids helped her but they offered to help me too. They had to took alot of the DIY projects that I was supposed to create away from us. They created the party favors and paid for them. They helped out tons and they probably would’ve helped more if I had included them in the process sooner. Yeah I feel your pain about planning your wedding around other people’s dates. A college bud was supposed to get married a month before my wedding but she and her parents decided that two weeks before my wedding was even better.

Then another college bud got married three weeks before me and couldn’t attend. Then the RSVPs kept changing right up until the last minute. Some people who had RSVP’d didn’t even show up. Then the reception didn’t go as planned, but we muddled through.

I understand feeling like getting married/wedding planning is overrated. Believe me it is! No one is an expert when planning their wedding. They have to research and just remember it’s never going to be completely perfect. I had to start coming to terms with that the night before our wedding. I can’t tell you how many times I felt like calling it a day. But I tried to stick with it and keep going. In the end, it was nice and now I’m just glad it’s over. I think the marriage is actually going to be more fun than the wedding planning. In the mean time, take a breather and ask for help. Call your MOH and vent. I can’t tell you how many times I did that during the last two weeks. The thing with the moms will works it’s self out in one way or another. Everything will come together.

Just remember you’re not alone in this madness. If you need to vent, that’s what these boards are for.
