Apparently, my future Maid/Matron of Honor wants to be more involved in the wedding planning process. I was planning on including her (and my mom) in the food tasting, cake tasting, invite arrangment session and perhaps the flower arranging sessions. She has already been invited to 2 out of the 4 events. I don’t understand how she can be any more involved than she already is.

@2shy2Bbf: mine has not been involved at all… i wish she was though! i think the most i can get out of her is a bachelorette party and she is cohosting my bridal shower…. ugh

My Maid/Matron of Honor is VERY involved! She has been picking out things and showing me decor ideas and even helping me with my bouquet. I am so glad that I have a great BFF and that she is so active in my planning process.

Well, my Maid/Matron of Honor was back packing across Australia up until a month before my wedding, so not really at all.
The rest of the bridesmaids were out of town as well. They planned my bachelorette party and attended my shower, and two of them helped me out with a couple DIY projects the day before the wedding.
3/4 shopped for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. My Maid/Matron of Honor just went along with what they picked.
They attended the rehearsal and the wedding dressed and ready to go, and that was really all I expected of them.

@2shy2Bbf: Maybe you can ask her exactly what it is she wants to do. My BMs really aren’t that involved in the planning process, mainly b/c I am the “planner” of the group so they would rather leave it in my capable hands. They have shown interest in dress shopping, and they like to get pictures and e-mails to be kept in the loop and give their opinions but that’s it. Fiance and I are doing all of our planning.

My Future Mother-In-Law is not involved in our wedding planning process. She has offered suggestions/ideas for things that I wasn’t sure about, but that is about it. I think she keeps her distance because she doesn’t want to step on anyone’s toes (my mom’s especially).

Mine Maid/Matron of Honor wants to be as involved as she possibly can and help me with what ever I need. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and her Maid/Matron of Honor went missing when she needed her most so I made a huge attempt to step in and help when she needed it. It was a huge amount of un-needed stress on her and she doesn’t want the same to happen to me.

my Maid/Matron of Honor is not involved at all. no shower, no bach party, and she is not even coming to the rehearsal dinner.
she text me the other day and asked what our wedding colors were because she did not even know.

My Maid/Matron of Honor lives Out of Town, so she wasn’t able to do a lot. She planned an amazing shower and bachelorette party, of course picked out her dress, found some random things for me like hair accessories for all the girls, and helped a lot the day of. She asked if she could do more, but I told her not to worry since she’s so far away.

I don’t live near any family, so a lot of them are not very involved. My Maid/Matron of Honor (sister) is planning a bachelorette party and possibly co-hosting a shower. I think I’ll be sending her pics of decor and asking for DJ suggestions, too. She’s the person I run everything buy for suggestions…but that’s about it. My Fiance and I are pretty much doing everything on our own.

I’ve kind of kept my Maid/Matron of Honor in the dark and I don’t think she’s happy with it. I just don’t know where to include her and I really love going to stuff with my Fiance.
