    They chime in when I ask for advice.  I haven’t had to ask for help yet, but I know my local girls will be there when I need them.

    I don’t like the idea of just showing up at the wedding. Some of mine are more involved than others. Everyone has helped in some way or another. Alot of the wedding is going ot be done by me and I will need hands on help later on. I like planning by myself, I just want them to listen for now, lol

    I had 4 BM’s.  All of them were good at responding to me and helping out.  Two of them my Maid/Matron of Honor and my other really good friend took charge when I really needed them and were a HUGE help.  I guess it might just depend on their personality and how close you are with them.

    I couldn’t really answer the question with the options.  I think my BM’s would be more involved in the wedding planning process if I asked them to be.  But I don’t bother, not because they aren’t capable of helping, but because everyone’s so busy.  I just appreciate them helping with my shower.   That’s more than enough to me.

    My Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man are really young, so I don’t ask much from them at all.  They will help with some last minute things (ex. setting up decorations at the reception venue) but that’s about it.

    I’m not having any bridesmaids… only my little sister as a maid of honor. It’s definitely helping out budget-wise, and boy is she excided! I get dress emails on a daily basis!

    i’d say as of right now, not really involved at all. (which, to be is honest is ok at this point) Maybe picking out dresses, showers, and closer to the wedding i’ll expect more involvement , but most of the planning will get done by me and my mom. My sis is the Maid/Matron of Honor so shes prob the most involved and like i said thats A-OK by me.

    None of them are very responsive which is kind of a bummer.

    I had to order a bunch of one thing for my wedding favors but the vendor would only let me order 5 sets at a time and I couldn’t order another 5 sets for 6 months. I needed 25 sets total so I sent out an email to my BM’s and my family to try to get the stuff ordered.

    Not one Bridesmaid or Best Man replied. I ended up getting my mom and coworkers to order. I was so disappointed after that since it kind of showed me that my BMs are going to be the “show up and walk down the aisle” kind of BMs. 🙁

    It’s about half and half for me.  3 of my bridesmaids don’t really do anything, but are reliable when I message them about their dresses, etc. which we are ordering later this month. 

    My sis is my Maid/Matron of Honor, and she is awesome.  2 other girls are great too, texting me asking if I need help, etc.  It’s a little early to need much help, but I know I can count on them.

    This is my jealous face. My sis is my Maid/Matron of Honor too but she’s 1) across the country 2) working full time 3) raising 4 kids 4) taking classes.

    Pity party, table for 1 please.
