@AlliMayWedding:  Congratulations on being asked to be her MOH!  That’s so exciting!!  If you are comfortable with the amount of help she has been providing you it’s silly to ask her to do more just because you feel like you should.

My Maid/Matron of Honor was awesome.  I was pretty clueless about anything wedding related, and she had gotten married almost two years before me so she was super helpful.  She went dress shopping with me, she planned my bridal shower, she put together my bachelorette party, she was involved in any craft-related thing that I did (she volunteered for all of it).  She was just awesome!  Not to mention when it came to wrangling my other BMs together she had NO problem doing it!

meh I think it’s a non issue. What you are doing sounds normal. My moh has a kids and enough to do I talk wedding with her a little and she been dressing shopping with me that is all. I wouldn’t go looking for things to give moh to do just for the sake of it. It also sounds like your friend is relived so I don’t know why you think that a bad thing.

I been in a lot of weddings and offered different types of help. As long as the bride keeps it in perspective and realize that I am not responsible for planning her wedding and that I sometimes have to say no then I don’t mind helping out here and there and doing some wedding stuff.

My Maid/Matron of Honor didnt do anythign except plan the Bach party and bridal shower. She is my sister as well and other than sending a few ideas to her to bounce them off her she didnt do anything either.

My Maid/Matron of Honor planned my bridal shower and a small bachlorette party. I am now goingto be her Maid/Matron of Honor in JUly 2013, so I, too, am excited to be a part of my Maid/Matron of Honor wedding! It is stressful though because both have very different tastes.

I am going to plan her parties, like she did mine, and I offer to help with whatever she needs, like she did for me. There really isn’t anything more you can do. Just be there if she needs you 🙂
