Wow they definitely sound helpful and its brilliant for you especially as you said you were really busy!

Not to rain on your parade but they would be a bit much for me haha. I am a control freak so I’d feel I was losing bits of things I want to organise haha

I am sure my BFF would be like this if I asked, but I am generally fearful of overwhelming her or being that annoying person who talks non-stop about the wedding. I also only have a Maid/Matron of Honor. My sis is helping too as my day of coordnator and she is looking for caterers. But I don’t wanna overwhelme them

I just asked my bridesmaids and Maid/Matron of Honor to be in my bridal party!  Maid/Matron of Honor has been pretty busy trying to get her new business up and coming. We tried on dresses like a week after. Found my dress, its more my family being the dramatic ones. My other bridesmaids are like just tell me the specifics of a dress and that is that! Half of my bridal party have a dress from another wedding I’m letting them use!!I’d rather all that money go to a bachelorette trip. The rest of the wedding I already have planned. Just have had to fight my dad on the dress to the nail it seems like (he’s had price tag shock!). Flower girl’s grandma got her a dress from another wedding never used. It’s within colors of my scheme so I’m like okay. Done and done.

msmeow13 :  I first asked them to make sure they were interested. Made these wooden boxes and included, nail polish, bath bomb, candle, facial, and essential oil, and a necklace. Scents were fall related since we are having a fall wedding. My bridesmaids loved them! My Maid/Matron of Honor got a macaroon pouch with her names since she loves them and a mug saying you are my person.  I basically shopped as if it were their birthday.

Mine are amazing too! I adore them. They are so drama free and just want to make things easier for me. They take care of whatever needs to be done and keep offering to help and pay for stuff, even  though I am covering all their costs. I don’t know how I can adequately thank them other than to do the same for them if I am asked. Feeling very blessed…

I really don’t want a wedding and would rather elope so I may be doing just that so I can’t tell you how my bridemaids are doing/going. lol

But I can say I am glad you are not having drama. I was in two weddings a month apart last year and it was ALWAYS something. One girl had two drop out. The other 3… then one didn’t even show up to the wedding. Just wow. 

Happy you got the real deal!

msmeow13 :  I’m SO happy to hear that! I’m sickkkk of hearing “all bridal parties are full of drama” but that’s so not true. If you pick the right friends/family everything will be fine! Mine are great as well! I have 7 (and 2 junior) we planned a day to go bridesmaid dress shopping and all of them came expect for one that had a weather emergency where she lives. They all paid for their dresses in full, so I don’t need to worry about anyone not ordering their dress. Everyone responses to texts, I keep in touch with them and hang out with them just as much as we did before they had the title of bridesmaids. Overall everything is great and my bridal party is the LEAST stressful thing about wedding planning.

If there are any new brides reading this thread my advice to you is if you pick the right girls everything will be great. Read the posts about bridal party drama and if any of the posts remind you of something one of your friends or even family members might do then don’t ask that friend/family. A flaky friend is a flaky bridesmaid. People don’t change just because they have a special title for a year. So pick girls that you can count on to be a good friend during your special time.

Mine as amazing as well. They live far away so they didn’t go dress shopping with me, but the loved the dress when I sent pictures. They got their dresses when I asked. 

They are helping plan my shower and yesterday I found out they are planning a bachelorette  party for me. Something I really didn’t expect!

msmeow13 :  I asked my Maid/Matron of Honor with a balloon pop. We have been friends since kindergarten, so before I even asked she was already setting up dress shopping appointments. I don’t have that many friends (by choice) so she knew it would be her. But I still wanted to make it special. So I wrote a cute card saying “I dont know if I will have a big wedding in a church, a small wedding at a winery or a to hell with this elopement, but I do know….” and then I had three “tools” for her to pop a giant balloon with. When she popped it confetti stars went EVERYWHERE and the paper inside said “I want you by my side, will you be my Maid Of Honor, My Wedding Sidekick, My marshmallow pal (inside joke). 

I WISH I had gotten it on video, the balloon popping was WAY WAY cooler than I expected. This happened in Oct and I am still finding confetti stars in my house. lol
