I feel like we only have wedding party drama on here, and as a newly engaged bride, I would love to hear some stories about wedding parties that were not nightmares! How did your girls or guys help you, did they do anything fun to calm your nerves before the big day, or throw you the most amazing shower ever, or give great advice during your planning process?
I’m a little nervous about choosing my wedding party after all of the things I hear about on here about maidzillas, and would love to hear the positive sides! 🙂

Mine haven’t helped a ton, but they’re all busy people with their own lives. The 4 of them are so different, but each so special to me, and I really couldn’t have asked for better. After reading a Bridesmaid or Best Man drama thread on here, I thanked them all for not being psycho.

FutureBride625: Some of mine were better than others – but one really stuck out! She is one of my friends and my husband’s cousin and she is AMAZING! She helped me with SO much during the wedding process (which is awesome because we grew really close during this time). She came and helped me do all my invitations, and she came 5!! That’s right…5 days before the wedding to stay with me (slept on my couch) and help me do all the last minute things that we needed done – welcome bags, rehearsal dinner setup, nails, etc. She is amazing and such an awesome friend.
I gave her an extra thank you gift privately to thank her for all of her hard word and time. Love her. She even said to me, “I think it is so unfair you get me but I got married before you met my cousin!”. I have done the same for her in a heartbeat.

My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor and my cousin is a Bridesmaid or Best Man. They have been sooo helpful with everything and made wonderful suggestions that I did not even think of. My other 3 BMs are all so very busy with work/kids so I do not want to ask too much of them however, they continually ask me if I need help with anything. I feel so overwhelmed with love and care from my girls all the time. I feel so grateful that they are in my life and that they are drama-free

FutureBride625: Congratulations on your engagement 😀 They’ve all offered to help with one aspect of the wedding (ie invitations, centerpieces, baking cupcakes). I’m super thankful that they’re all on board with me and have given me no drama. I know you didn’t ask for any advice, but try to pick people who will help you on your day and not make more work for you lol
