Hey at least you have one Bridesmaid or Best Man who is there for you! I had 2 BMs and one Maid/Matron of Honor and they did NOTHING to help me. By the time the wedding rolled around I was so PO’ed that I really didn’t care if they showed up or not!

Most of my bridesmaids were from out of town so they offered to help but that was hard to handle. I knew they meant well.

My Maid/Matron of Honor (sister) was better in the beginning with helping plan BUT once it came to the showers and the day of- she lost interest more and more. She was late to nearly everything the day of and just didn’t seem to care. It hurt my feelings but I never said anything. I think she’s young and never seems to understand how her actions affect others.

I never counted on getting any help so any help was great. In the end, it didn’t matter.

@chicy724: Officially, all your Maid/Matron of Honor is required to do is show up for the rehearsal and the wedding.  Anything else (showers, bachelorette parties, helping with crafts, etc) is optional. 

If she’s your best friend, it would be nice if she was more helpful, but did you explain that to her up front?  She might have agreed to be your Maid/Matron of Honor thinking she just needed to be there for you the day before and the day of.  Remember that she has her own life and while your wedding is important and exciting, she probably has a lot of other stuff on her plate!

Ha…My Maid/Matron of Honor yesterday told me that she had other things more important than my wedding going on in her life yesterday (which is understandable), but then told me she wouldn’t know until today if she could even  make it to the rehersal and wedding.  My wedding is 11 days away, WHAT!!!  talk about panic!  She’s caused nothing but problems this whole wedding planning process, hasn’t been involved at all , No showed my bachelorette party last weekend, didn’t make it to my bridal shower.  I ended up making the decision to demote her down to bridesmaid and now am having my childhood best friend step up.  As bridezilla as that might sound, i just couldn’t deal with a let down and all she’s done is stress me out beyond belief.  You find out a lot about your “TRUE” friends, when you are planning the wedding of your dreams : /
