I keep reading posts about brides wedding party members causing stress, and various issues…. i just want to know how many of you have a wedding party that you can’t thank enough for all their help and co-operation? my girls and the groomsmen have been SO friggin’ awesome so far, i dont’ know how i’m going to thank them enough. If they are having any problems with me, they definately are hiding it well, and i’m really thankful.
Anyone else that can’t thank their wedding party enough?

@RockStar33: My wedding party has been awesome so far! They are all family or SO’s of family so it’s a very close group I am lucky to have. My sisters are my 3 BM’s and they have travelled to go dress shopping (at least 2 hours away each time) numerous times without even a sigh of frustration. I am actually going home this weekend for a long weekend of planning with my sisters so we can get some DIY projects underway. And this was THEIR idea, not mine. I didn’t want to ask them to do much because i didn’t want to be all pushy and demanding, but they keep asking me for things to do! So I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts and hopefully I won’t be back here in 5 months with a Bridesmaid VENT post lol

Yea, hopefully it stays good… haha. I haven’t asked too much of my bridal party so far but they keep offering.

I stopped asking my bridal party for help about 3 months into the planning because half the time they ignored my emails. They do not offer help, but they do offer opinions. It’s not the situation I thought it would be but it’s not terrible either. I just keep repeating that famous Wedding Bee mantra to myself….”no one cares as much about your wedding as you do”.

I adore my wedding party! They a spread out all over the country, so I didn’t expect much other than showing up at the wedding and they have totally gone above and beyond!

I love my girls! They’ve gotten their stuff together easily and are always willing to handle my wedding crazyness.

My party has seriously gone above & beyond my expectations. They haven’t complained about travel, the fact my wedding is a Sunday…nothing! In fact, I keep trying to be accomodating (letting them pick their own dresses & shoes, trying to offer reasonably priced options, funding things during the wedding w/e) and they keep telling me “It’s your day! We’ll do whatever you want, stop worrying about it!”. Even the groomsmen!
I’m on a tight budget, but I’m doing my best to cover a lot of the things during my wedding weekend as part of my thank you to them. They definitely deserve it. They’ve done so much, I just want to take as much of the burden off of them as possible.
