- Wedding: October 2009
Okay, so this is probably an etiquette question, though I’m posting in the Bridesmaid section because I’m a bridesmaid.
One of my best friends is currently planning her wedding. She’s getting married October 2nd of this year, so 3.5 months away. Her Maid/Matron of Honor is her sister, or just recently had a baby.
I know that my friend wants a bridal shower and a bachelorette party. We all recently attended a bachelorette party for another friend that was a whole weekend event of going to NYC and having fun. I know that my friend, who’s wedding is in October, had a blast at that party, and probably would want something similar for her party. But that party took basically 4/5 months to plan. So I feel like we really need to start planning this party if it’s goign to be as big as I’m sure she would like it to be.
I’ve e-mailed the Maid/Matron of Honor and basically said “Congrats on your new baby, she’s adorable! Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you with the planning of Friend’s bridal shower or bachelorette party! I’d love to help!” That was last week, and I haven’t heard anything back since then. I’m worried that she’s so busy with her newborn that she won’t have time (or interest) in planning the parties, and then my friend won’t get the kind of parties she wants.
So I guess my question is – can I do anything? I’d like to e-mail the other bridesmaids (including MOH) and at least start figuring out when’s a good day for everyone and ask what people think we should do, but I feel like just doing that might be stepping on the MOH’s toes, because I feel like those kind of e-mails should be coming from her.
What do you guys think?
