Involved in what?

My Maid/Matron of Honor, my sister, didnt help with the planning other than the shower/bachelorette she threw. It really isnt the BMs job to help you plan at all. If they want to great, but I dont think there is anything you can do to get her to help more. We would sometimes talk about the wedding, but she didnt really do much other than send me an occasional link. You have to be careful that all conversations dont become about the wedding because they will get “wedding’d out” and they will be posting on a board somewhere “I am an Maid/Matron of Honor and the bride wont talk about anything else but her wedding and wants me to help with everything, but I dont have the time and I ….”

If the other BMs need her help in planning a shower, then they need to talk to her. Not you.

You can involve them with any DIY’s you are making. Invite the girls over for an evening of crafting and wine.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister too. I think for her it’s because she’s so young. She is in that it’s all about me phase…”it’s her summer before college”. Well, it’s also the summer before my wedding. She has helped a little, but mostly she just sits there and when I ask her for advice she hates everything I pick out. It gets old, but end the end I go with what I want. My 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man are amazing.  One is younger than my Maid/Matron of Honor, and the other is my close cousin. She is constantly texting me asking for things to do. While the Bridesmaid or Best Man don’t typically help with planning, I am thankful for her. But I agree with other post, get them involved in anything DIY!

Don’t hesitate to ask other friends to help out- another girl friend helped me with the program fans for 3 hours one afternoon. It can be easy for bridesmaids to get burn out, and I had several friends offer to help-take people up on it!
