Gosh wish I could but I seem to be always a bride lol..I would bring it up with your friend.She may not want to have expensive showers and bachelorette parties. I could never be bothered with such things.

I would just talk to her, maybe make a list (in your head or on paper) of what you are willing to do, you can find plenty of tasks that MOHs are “supposed” to do online. Then go to her and say “This is what I would like to do for/with you, if you don’t want to any of these things that is fine, I just wanted you to know what I am willing to do.  You’re my best friend and I want to help make this time special for you.”

i def agree with alyssaC! get on the same page about what she expects/wants. there are tons of alternatives to bridal showers. you could cater in some jimmy johns or something and have a ladies day? i bet just having the ppl closest to her around for a day will make her so happy!

@Koi Fishie:  hahaha, I can’t believe this, I read this and we are soooooo similar! I’m the same age and one of my best friends from high school and I had recently reconnected when she got engaged. She asked me to be her bridesmaid and I was sooooooooo excited. I’m a bit different because I plan weddings for fun, so that’s all she really wanted from me, but I started booking appointments for her to go look at wedding dresses and venues and set up a to-do list for her and asked her every week how she was doing on sorting out x, y and z. I also helped her with her DIY projects for her engagement party and took photos at her engagement party.


Just stuff like that ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m also getting married after she is, so we agreed that I’m her bridesmaid (now Maid/Matron of Honor, yay!) 100% until after her wedding and then she is my Maid/Matron of Honor 100% and it is “my turn” ๐Ÿ™‚ That way it isn’t too stressful and I’m not pulling the focus off her when it’s her big day.
