Yeah my girls haven’t done jack shit. Its really annoying! My maid of honor bought favors (little boxes of jordan almonds) and cupcakes and acted like it broke the bank to spend $70 :/ Um I bought your dress, shoes and everything else AND spend over $200 on gifts for you… SO OBNOXIOUS! I was running around all day getting stuff for the shower because she didn’t do anything, and neither did my other bridesmaid. I bought everything and set it up, and was late because of it. Then yesterday she had the nerve to say “you better be as good of a maid of honor as I am…” So I said with an annoyed voice “Yeah, I promise to do for you exactly what you did for me” haha

 I hope they step it up soon. I’m getting married this weekend and I’m so ready for this to be done!

It was really wonderful for you to do all those things to make your sister’s wedding a good one. Especially in terms of paying for elements of it, etc. She’s lucky to have such a generous sister and I’m sorry it seems like she might not appreciate it!

Maybe it is a regional difference, but I don’t think it’s the bridal party’s job to buy favors or invitations or anything else besides their attire? I know if I was a Maid/Matron of Honor and I was asked to buy the invites I would feel funny… it stinks that she only covered $40 of her dress, though. Wedding parties also notoriously hate being “put to work” putting together invites or favors or tulle. It’s the bride’s job and any help she gets is gravy 🙂 But they shouldn’t say they are going to come and then pull out!

Maybe your sister is just not a mature enough person to do all this the way she should. Try not to let money and participation issues ruin this special time with her. Try to enjoy sharing the experience with her… hard to do I know when you’re getting irritated.
