I seriously just need to vent! First, a close (or so i thought) friend of ours agreed to getting officiated so she could marry us. Now she is not responding to any of my messages or anything so I have to try to find someone else. Second, only my maid of honor and one of my bridesmaids are willing to help with anything! One of them got a new phone number and didn’t even let me know. And another bridesmaid, my cousin who lives 4 hours away, got mad over some maid of honor drama and stopped talking to me. The other day I asked her if she still planned on being a bridesmaid and she replied she did and didn’t know where the idea that she didn’t want to came from. But she still won’t text me back about anything with the wedding. NOBODY seems to want to help and I’m afraid I’m gonna turn into bridezilla from all the stress. Has anyone gone through something like this??

I choose to keep the wedding party simple to avoid this… My sister Maid/Matron of Honor, his sister bridesmaid, my ex and Boyfriend or Best Friend a male bridesmaid. But that was my 2nd choice. Originally my friend from Spain was Flying all the way back here to be my MOH! i was over the moon. But it fell through (school related) while I understood I was bummed. But you know what I found a way to make her an honorary bridesmaid… Thank you skype and projectors at the reception. The bottom line is that it is your day. No wedding is perfect because while some choose to marry in the eyes of God they are not God and thus not perfect. We are human, we make mistakes. We are Women, we get stressed and emotional. The more people you get to “help” the harder it is to keep track of everything. a lot of times it is the Maid/Matron of Honor that helps sans other bridesmaids. Your family and friend love you, they will be there to see your happiness not your decorations. Relax a bit. Remember that they will get married one day too and now you are off the hook from having to help them! Don’t scare off those who are helping by taking out your frustration on the others for not on them. See that Ring on your finger? It means you are loved! that’s all that matters!
Stress Free Hugs from a fellow bride.

@sara.courtney3: you poor thing, I havent really gotten into the planning and organising yet but I still get upset by some awful comeents made by Future Mother-In-Law, its pretty sad when people cant just be happy for you and they dont want to help out.
