- Wedding: October 2012 - Watch tower lodge, Black hawk state Park Rock Island, IL
my wedding is October 5th 2012 so roughly 6.5 months away, dr.s office called and scheduled my shoulder surgery for April 9th! so i will be in a sling with NO USE of my right arm till sometime in june…and I wanted pretty much everything done for the wedding by August 1 since not only do my children start back to school but so do I in August, so im trying to get as much done before my surgery because after my arm gets out of sling I wont have full range of motion or hardly any motion in my arm for months! but do I help? NOPE my girls who care sooo much about me cant seem to wanna help me. its not that they are to busy either, my moh has a new girl friend who lives out of town and she is so wrapped up in it that shes either working or three hours away. and my Matron of honor doesnt seem to want to help, my other brides maids that live around here just dont seem to have the time or want to help, my sisters live out of town but at least my twin is willing to address all the invites for me since I wont be able to….im just frustrated because now 5 months of work is now crammed into about three weeks, I have a lot done but I still dont have my favors done or a few other things….all of this while trying to get through the semester at school and take care of my three kids and all of their needs…to say im STRESSED is an understatement….any advise from other brides about their bridal party unwillingness to help?
