What is it you are asking her to help you with? Traditionally they dont HAVE to help with anything other than show up- although most expect to throw a shower and bachlorette.

Are you talking about picking out dresses or other DIY projects? If its the latter I would lower your expectations. If its the former, I would narrow it down to 2 dresses you like and then give her a month to try them on/decide via pictures online.

  • Wedding: October 2010

I did a lot by myself since I didn’t want to burden my MOH too much.  My mom and I did a lot of stuff by ourselves too.  I also went shopping for things with friends that were going to the wedding, but weren’t in it.  My MOH wanted to be there for everything, but it just wasn’t possible.  It was a lot of work, but all worth it.

@JanuraryGirl80: I found help in a few places I didnt expect. My brothers girlfriend and an old childhood friend. Others may be happy to help you. Schedule ahead of time (at least a week) and let your MOH when to come if she can to help out. Also ask someone else to come and help. Provide pizza and make it a “DIY party”.

As much as she may want to help, she doesnt want to help every week I am sure. She has her own life so plan a few days over the next few months to have a “DIY” get together and do the rest yourself.

I am sure she wants to help, but when its convenient for her I suspect. So try to make it convenient and fun- not bridal slave labor 🙂

@JanuraryGirl80: That is dissapointing, I would be too.  Have you asked other people to help? Like a close coworker? Or just a “friend” in the area?  Maybe if its more of an event with more people your MOH will get more caught up in the excitement?

If I were there I would be happy to help 🙂
