I keep reading these wedding articles talking about thanking your bridesmaids and groomsmen for all the hard work they do for you. This is my second wedding, the first one didn't work out and that was for the best. My current fiance is a much better match for me.
Anyways, at my last wedding all but one of my Bridesmaids didn't do anything really. They bought the dress and showed up. The one bridesmaid designed me beautiful bridal invites. Also the Groomsmen didn't do anything helpful either.
With this wedding I am not doing a maid of honor because we are choosing my sister and my fiance's two sisters and on his side my brother and his two brothers. Fiance's family lives out of town but my sister lives in town. I would like her to help but as soon as I brought up wedding colors the day after my engagement, she rolled her eyes so hard I thought they were going to fall out! Any tips on navigating this tension and utilizing my BM and fiance's GM?
