Thank her for her suggestions (and I would use the word “suggestions” rather than “help”.) Then tell her that with the wonders of modern technology like the airplane, phone and Internet, you’ve got it all covered. Then give her a task you don’t care about so much to keep her preoccupied. This way she’ll still feel involved but you still maintain your position as Maid/Matron of Honor. She can only take stuff over if you continue to let her, so don’t. Plan the bachelorette party, be 10 steps ahead of her in your planning and be done with it before she can say willy nilly.

Just try your best to deal with her and don’t involve the bride.  You’re right, she’s got too much to think about!  I had a bit of drama when planning stuff for my sister’s wedding (her MoH was a bit clueless with some of the stuff) but I didn’t tell my sister because I knew it would just upset her.  Take her good suggestions, shrug off her bad ones and try to have fun.  You only have a couple of months to go and then your time dealing with her is over!

@klutzzy128: WOW! What a relief! That’s right, it would only make sense that her behavior would expound elsewhere, and to the bride herself! That’s a shame. Well, you’re proceeding with poise and respect despite the wackiness. Kudos to you. I hope things continue to be smoother for you from here on out. Have a great time planning. Your friend is lucky to have you as her MOH!
