Any ideas on what I can do to get my bridesmaids more excited about planning the wedding?
Or is it time that I realize I’m the only one (besides my FI) who cares what lighting we have or where we should put a table for the gifts/cards to go?
I could pinterest/stumbleupon/google/weddingbee all day. I know that it’s not nearly the same for them as it is me, but still. They don’t seem to have much opinion or suggestions. I view it as not only planning my big day, but a girly bonding moment with close friends and my sister.
Any input is welcome 🙂

Well, you already kinda answered your own question – nobody bar you will be as excited as you about your wedding.
I personally have asked my friends to tell me if I’m being too wedding-y, and am, for the most part, careful to make sure my conversations aren’t entirely centred on shades of white, centrepieces and stationery!
Maybe treat them all to coffee, have a chat about what they will be wearing (cos as women I can’t see that they won’t want to talk about pretty dresses and shoes!) then maybe lead into other wedding related talk if you want?

@SoftKitty: thank you for your advice. Like I said, I understand that it’s not the same for them, but I have to keep reminding myself of it. I just feel guilty that sometimes I tell myself “oh they must not even care” when I know that they do, just not as obsessively. 🙂

I hear you….. :-/
I feel a little “lonely” sometimes in this whole wedding thing.

@MrsJoyful80: I know! I only get to do it once so I want it to be as perfect as I can make it, but have fun memories from the process..

Only one of my bridesmaids is interested…but that’s okay. I was upset until I found out how excited she was! We don’t live near each other.
I think realizing that only you will care as much as you care is important. Posting here will help!! Make sure your Pinterest is shared with Facebook (if you are okay with that) because people will see it and “like” things…that always makes me feel good, lol. Oh social networking.

@peachacid: I actually wish that I could make boards private. I want to pin stuff to keep track of it, share with my bridesmaids, and here but I’d like it to be a surprise for guests. I’m glad that I’m not the only one who feels this way. I actually read an article advising pregnant women that only their currently pregnant friends will understand/ always want to hear about what is going on. It made me stop and think haha.
