Oh man Ashley! That’s seriously a tough one! I rhibk you have good days and bad days like any relationship – there are things my FH does sometimes that really piss me off, but at the end of the day I NEVER feel as though I’ve made or am making a wrong decision about marrying him.

If your feeling some of these thoughts, maybe you need to take a small step back and ask yourself why? Is it just nerves or cold feet? Are they just small things that you can live with or is it aomething bigger that’s making you have second thoughts?

If it’s the latter then you might need to think things through a bit. I don’t think you should go into a marriage with doubts 🙁

@Ashley_B:  Yeah, if you look around on here a bit, you’ll see lots of this. i have no solution for you as I am currently pretty frustrated with most of my BMs… What seems to be the problem?

I have a really small bridesmaids party, it’s just my bestfriend (my MOH) my little sister (BM) my Future Sister-In-Law (BM) and my youngest sister who’s like…10, so she’s a junior bridesmaid. 🙂 But I had a REALLY hard time decided on my Maid/Matron of Honor. My sister and I are very very close, but my best friend has talked about being my Maid/Matron of Honor for YEARS. (We’ve been friends for 10+ years) Even though my sister was amazing about it, I still wonder if I should have done it differently. :/

Start taking charge re: the dresses.  Choose a designer, color, and fabric for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.  Choose a local shop that carries that line and ask how much lead time they need.  Then, just tell your BMs that they have until X date to order a dress from X salon or they’re out of the wedding.

Have they ever been bridesmaids before?  Ordering (and paying for) a dress of the bride’s choosing is SOP.  You are hardly asking for anything outside the norm.

As for the lack of excitement, I know that’s frustrating, but your wedding is still 7 months away – an eternity, when it’s somebody else’s wedding.  Hopefully as it gets closer to the day they will be more excited and it will be more on their radars.

@Ashley_B:  Personally, I would let it go. My sister is pretty uninvolved with the whole wedding thing. And that’s fine. It’s not her scene. I cant expect her to change becuase of my wedding. When the time comes for dresses, I will just push her a bit harder to get in a store and try it on. I’ll even bribe her with food and gifts, if I have to.

I would add your other friend though. Dont replace the sisters though. It just takes one awesome bridesmaid to make it work. The other two can slowly fade in the background!
