I am Maid of Honor for my friend and am excited to be planning her Bridal Shower for her. I understand that it is traditional to include the bridesmaids in the planning, but sometimes not? Another friend of mine is getting married and the bridesmaids were told that it was all planned out and they did not have to worry about it.
I am a planner, and I have the foundation of it planned out. I am planning on asking the bridesmaids opinion on what games to play or what food to serve (and whether they would like to cook it), but honestly, one is busy planning her wedding, one is not really into this stuff and the other is my co-maid of honor who has already expressed they she just cares about the bachelorette party.
The Bride insists that I run EVERYTHING by them. My attitude is that I am the MOH, I am the Hostess and I am happy to run things by her, but it is not a democracy and I am going to require a unanimous vote to do anything because nothing will get done.
Am I going about this wrong?
