I think it should be fine. I don’t have a Maid/Matron of Honor but I have 4 BMs. 1 of my BMs is getting married 2 months before me and 2 of my BMs are also in her wedding as am I. So they are all focusing on her wedding (hers comes first so it’s understandable) so they haven’t really thought about mine at all yet – Well the 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man that’s not in the other wedding has and has been a huge help! But my Bridal shower in a few weeks is being planned by my family members.

When my mom remarried she only had a Maid/Matron of Honor. For a bachelorette party, she got a bunch of co-workers, other friends, and her Maid/Matron of Honor (which was her sister), they decided to rent a limo, go to a casino, see a show, gamble a little, have dinner, and then go to a bar. Of course, all of these people were invited to the wedding. 

I’m not sure exactly who planned it, I’m assuming the people from work contacted my aunt and arranged something all together. 

Could you talk to your family and see if they’d be willing to help organize something? I’m sure they would love to help out.  

EDIT: Could you have your Maid/Matron of Honor reach out to them and ask for help? Something along the lines of “I’m planning the Bachelorette party and was wondering if you’d like to help me plan.”

My friend was in a similar situation. She had her sister as the Maid/Matron of Honor, and that’s it. Her sister planned the bridal shower, but we all chipped in to pay for it, and all of us (amongst her friends) helped plan the bachelorette. I didn’t mind not standing up with her, because I was just happy to get to watch her get married! 🙂

My bridesmaids actually didn’t plan my showers at all. Where I live it’s typical for the ladies in the family to host the showers. Two aunts on my side planned one shower and two aunts on my husbands side planned the other shower. My Maid/Matron of Honor organized a get together for us a few weeks before the wedding because neither of us wanted to bachelor or bachelorette party.

My Maid/Matron of Honor is leading the organization of both the shower and bachelorette, but with some serious help from my SIL and a lot of overall financial assistance from my mother. 

I had my mom step in to avoid the BMs spending too much. Around here it is quite normal for BMs to spend $1k+, and I wanted to avoid that, as I didn’t want my wedding to become a financial hassle for anyone.
