Just be her friend! Just because you’re her Maid/Matron of Honor doesn’t mean you have to plan her wedding- plus- she probably doesn’t want you to plan it. If she wants a shower and bachelorette party then you can plan those- but that will only take a couple of weeks to plan.

You both can lean on eachother & vent, laugh, cry, etc together when needed. How awesome you get to share all this with your best friend!

I was Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding the week before my own!  It was fine – neither one of us were bridezillas and were pretty calm about things.  I remember her calling me a couple of days before the wedding saying she wanted to cancel everything because she was getting cold feet and after several hours on the phone, I was able to get her to calm down.  She did get married and for years thanked me for just being there for her.

I agree – just because you’re the Maid/Matron of Honor doesn’t give you free reign to do everything.

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for a friend in May, then for a friend in June, then my wedding was Sept 3…. My goal was to be there for each of them as much as possible.  I made sure not to talk about my wedding too much – if they asked, then of course… But if not, then I kept the focus on them and their wedding πŸ™‚ 

One of those girls was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for me… The other one wasn’t simply because we had a small wedding (you know… Like if I had had one more Bridesmaid or Best Man etc…). Anyways, when it came time for my wedding, they both were all in for me too… I think we really found the balance for each other πŸ™‚
