@PippaJohnson:  You are so sweet and thoughtful to try to help your friend!  My sister lives abroad and I wish she were as thoughtful as you.  I think the biggest thing is being there to bounce ideas off of… especially by skype so she can for example literally hold up her flower ideas or invitations and you two can really interact and engage over the different details.

Beyond that, one of my BMs is always emailing me cute pics/ideas she comes across (keeping in mind my taste and what I’m envisioning for my big day).

@PippaJohnson:  Welcome to the hive! I love it here, and I’m sure you will get some great advice.

As for me… not much I can tell you. I think that you certainly need to be supportive and unfortunately it will be up to your friend to decide what to do. In the meantime, you can offer help with DIY from afar. I know that as a DIY bride I needed a LOT of inspiration and my sister and other bm helped a ton with helping find pictures and links to projects that suited my needs and budget.

@PippaJohnson:  oh my gosh, you are a bride’s dream! DEFINITELY MAID OF HONOR MATERIAL… esp cuz you’re the last one standing! lol

kk but seriously, you have plenty of options to help! My Fiance and I do long distance from California to London and are in eachother’s lives every day credit to our iPhones and computers and I ask him about millions of things at all hours of the day with the help of an app called “Whatsapp” so I know you two can be instantly connected VERY EASILY if you try!

Do you have a smart phone? I’d download Whatsapp immediately and have her do the same and then you can txt back and forth instantly or the same can be done via email but that is the best option for you now… definitely do as much fun research as you can and have a few skype sessions where you can ask her for direction and what you can do to help!

My girls are preoccupied with my BFFs wedding right now and I’m being super careful with NOT involving them too much so that she can have her shine so that means I’m all up in my groom’s brain like everyday with questions I would normally bounce off them… haha

WHATSAPP TO THE RESCUE!

Or Skype or Email… those are awesome too!

Good luck my dear! YOU WILL BE A GREAT HELP!

I don’t think you’ll be totally on your own with this one.  Just because the sister and other maids aren’t able to come I would think they’d still be sending ideas and helping out all they can! Why not send out an email to the other girls asking what they’ve been working on and what you can do to help make it happen on the day? I agree with previous posters, skype and whatsapp will become your friends!
