Ack! Sounds complicated. I know I would not deal well with this. I’ve only been engaged for a week, but I know I’m going to have to work really hard on not becoming a bridezilla. I’d flip out if this happened to me!

I guess the best thing you can do is just stay calm and don’t be too fussy about the details. Also I’d offer to help your BMs seeing they have lots to do and not much time.

I think you really should try to stay out of the middle of this unless its absolutely necessary.  It stinks she isn’t communicating with the others and then making them rush around to figure things out, but nothing has really fallen through the cracks yet.

That’s terrible for your bridesmaids!  If I were you, I would actually tell the other two bridesmaids that both you and your mother (if she is willing) would be happy to help take on some of the planning.  That way you can lessen the burden on the other two bridesmaids. 

Is your Maid/Matron of Honor usually flakey?  Is it normal within your friends for the bridal party to be responsible for the shower and bachelorette party, or is it possible that your Maid/Matron of Honor resents having to plan these events?

As bad as this situation is, it would have been much worse if the other bridesmaids had taken your Maid/Matron of Honor at her word, and not realized the problem.  They seem very responsible, and must care about you a lot!

I agree with professor…start taking on those responsibilities because unfortunately, she doesnt look like she is doing her job, which is unfair to everyone else who is involved.

I would also try and get someone to talk to your Maid/Matron of Honor and ask her to step up to the plate a little better. She should really have had this planned out a long time ago.
