What is it you are asking her to help you with? Traditionally they dont HAVE to help with anything other than show up- although most expect to throw a shower and bachlorette.

Are you talking about picking out dresses or other DIY projects? If its the latter I would lower your expectations. If its the former, I would narrow it down to 2 dresses you like and then give her a month to try them on/decide via pictures online.

  • Wedding: October 2010

I did a lot by myself since I didn’t want to burden my Maid/Matron of Honor too much.  My mom and I did a lot of stuff by ourselves too.  I also went shopping for things with friends that were going to the wedding, but weren’t in it.  My Maid/Matron of Honor wanted to be there for everything, but it just wasn’t possible.  It was a lot of work, but all worth it.

@JanuraryGirl80: I found help in a few places I didnt expect. My brothers girlfriend and an old childhood friend. Others may be happy to help you. Schedule ahead of time (at least a week) and let your Maid/Matron of Honor when to come if she can to help out. Also ask someone else to come and help. Provide pizza and make it a “DIY party”.

As much as she may want to help, she doesnt want to help every week I am sure. She has her own life so plan a few days over the next few months to have a “DIY” get together and do the rest yourself.

I am sure she wants to help, but when its convenient for her I suspect. So try to make it convenient and fun- not bridal slave labor 🙂

@JanuraryGirl80: That is dissapointing, I would be too.  Have you asked other people to help? Like a close coworker? Or just a “friend” in the area?  Maybe if its more of an event with more people your Maid/Matron of Honor will get more caught up in the excitement?

If I were there I would be happy to help 🙂
