You probably won’t be helping out too much, in my experience. I was best woman one time, and I went with the bride to pick out a dress, but that was really it. He didn’t want a bachelor party (which would have been weird anyway since I was the only attendant!), and there wasn’t too much else to do. The day of the wedding we went out to lunch together, but that was it!

Boys typically have less prep work that they’re willing to hand out, so I would just sit back and enjoy!

As people like to say “Its the brides day” as in she does the majority of the planning and since you are not close with her I wouldn’t expect anything more than an invitation. My FH has a good girlfriend and I asked if I should invite her to anything. He said no, it would make her feel weird even though I do know her, just not very very well.

Don’t second guess yourself about volunteering.  One of my FI’s girl friends did and I thought it was very nice although I didn’t take her up on it.  Her offer was still in the back of my mind though.
