I just got an email from my matron of honor asking for my help with my bridesmaids. I have six ladies coming from all over the country to the wedding this June, and my Maid/Matron of Honor is trying to get in touch with them all to start planning the bachelorette party. Apparently, they are not helping her at all. Not only are they not helping plan the party, but they aren’t even responding to her on small questions like when they are arriving in town. She feels bad involving me, but apparently she’s been trying to handle it behind my back for 2 months and they are literally blowing her off!
What can I do? They don’t know her – my Maid/Matron of Honor is my cousin, and my BMs are all college friends. I don’t want to go bridezilla on them and tell them they need to plan my b-party, but I also don’t want to leave my Maid/Matron of Honor out to dry. Any advice?

Don’t go bridezilla, just send a mass email saying “Hey Girls, Maid/Matron of Honor has been trying to get ahold of you, but is having some trouble. Could y’all please email her, thanks!”

I agree to Kingcake… Just send a cute “Hey how are you.. miss you” type thing and just add in Maid/Matron of Honor has been trying to get in touch with them..

Thanks ladies. I hope they don’t take it the wrong way, but I really didn’t want to let it slide completely – I want to help my Maid/Matron of Honor out. I appreciate the advice!

I’ve also been asked to step in with wrangling my one totally unresponsive Bridesmaid or Best Man for both the planning of the Bach party and shower.. unfortunately she responded just enough to offer to do the shower invitations which was a HUGE mistake and I wish my sisters never let her.. I doubt the invitations will actually go out before the shower, she is totally self absorbed and couldn’t even send out her own wedding invitations on time and had to rush to an invitation store last second and just pick soemthing out.
