Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
Everything I know about wedding is what I have accumulated by reading things on the net since I got engaged, so I have no idea about bridesmaids’ duties! I know that they are supposed to throw a shower, and obviously show up and stand up with me at the wedding by I’m not sure about anything else. I don’t want to be rude or a “bridezilla” so I’m hoping for a little advice!
My wedding is on August 21, 2010 and I’m doing a TON of diy projects. I know that they won’t want to help me with all of them (and just because I’m crazy enough to take it off doesn’t mean they are), but it would be nice to have some help with some of the simpler things. I’m taking a class again at the fall on top of my normal work/gym schedule so I’m hoping to get as much as possible out of the way during the summer before my life gets totally crazy. Is it too early to ask for help? And what’s a reasonable amount to expect from them? My maids are:
my sister, a stay at home mom to my adorable future ring bearer, who lives just around the corner from me
my cousin, who is a student but is working regular office ours right now, she works a block away from me, and lives about 5 minutes from my house
my best friend since high school, who works quite close to me and lives a quick drive away as well
So basically I’m wondering, should I leave them alone, should I have craft nights? Should I hold planning lunches or even discuss the wedding when I meet up with my cousin or friend for lunch?
So far my sister doesn’t even ask about the wedding and my cousin and friend usually ask how things are going, but I don’t want to be one of those dull people who blabs about the wedding every time we hang out.
Anyways, I’d appreciate input ladies, as I’m pretty lost here!
I’d love to know what you guys are doing with your maids pre-wedding, and how early you started!
