So I’m having ANOTHER issue with my bridesmaids. Is it normal to have all these issues? I gave my maid of honor a list of guests to invite to my bridal shower 2 – 3 weeks ago. The shower is suppose to be on May 22, about three weeks from now. She still has not sent out any invitations, even though I’ve asked her about it and a few other people in the wedding party have asked her too (if she needs help with anything). I was getting a little annoyed and I told her yesterday that we really should send out the invitations because it’s just a little rude, but she hasn’t responded and stll hasn’t sent out the invites. I know I should just let it go but I don’t understand what she’s doing? Any advice?

My shower is on the same day!!!! Yay! I took the reins here. I got the guest list total. I ordered the invitations and I sent them. My sister and Maid/Matron of Honor are throwing the shower but I couldn’t stand the invitations they liked. So I ordered the ones I liked with the wording I preferred. Yay for me! You can do it too. Don’t wait around anymore. Tomorrow is May 1st. Order your invites online. Papyrus takes waaay too long. You can order them online by tonight and use this weekend to gather all the addresses. This will show her that you’re not afraid to step in. It’s going to be your day and you should have it your way!!! Just like BK!!!

Haha, she’s actually doing Evites! Maybe she thinks that because it’s an Evite it’s ok to wait until the very last minute?

Oh no! Someone has to get those invites out ASAP. May 22nd is quickly approaching – that’s my shower too! I would start spreading the word, if you haven’t already, verbally to your friends and family about the date and the details.

yeah, 3 weeks is cutting it close when this is a busy time of year. I agree with jenniB and start verbally spreading the word and maybe ask another bridesmaid to push your Maid/Matron of Honor to get going!!
