- Wedding: September 2013
I need some advice, divine inspiration and maybe a chill pill.
Being Maid/Matron of Honor for your best friend the same year you yourself are getting married is HARD. I have no regrets, but I’ve about had it with her bridal party and family. Her family isn’t really helping her to pay for the wedding yet have a ton of opinions on how things should be done. Considering most of her bridal party is her family…things can get tense. I thought it would be great to get her sis (co MOH) and mom involved in the bridal shower, show the bride that her family can be supportive Etc. they seemed to have latched on to the idea, began planning and we even set a date and location!!!
Then out of nowhere the sister contacts me “my mom and I decided that since you’re her BFF and Maid/Matron of Honor you should just handle it”. Sweet. Honestly I don’t mind because she was never afforded any other wedding party celebrations that come with being engaged and I want to make sure this happens for her. I’m just frustrated and I know as soon as I become the MOHzilla they will likely complain -they’ve done it before, which is another reason I thought is let them take the lead on this party.
The question is should I ask the bride for her ok to basically take over all of these duties just in case they go back to her? Should I leave her out of it? What do I even do with this bridal party? *sigh* SO FRUSTRATED.
