Have any of you been in a wedding and trying to help plan/pitch in for it while also trying to plan your own?
One of my best friends from college is getting married in November. We just finally decided a couple weeks ago that the Jack&Jill shower/bachelorette party would be August 11th/12th.
I'm sharing the MOH responsibility with another and there are 4 BMs...so 6 of us in the bridal party. Since we are all in 4 different states, we've had a running Facebook chat going for ideas about the shower, bachelorette party and wedding too (mostly for our attire).
Since the shower is just 2 weeks away, I've been trying to get everyone to respond with their ideas (the bride wants to be part of the planning; we will having the shower at her house) and everything so that it's actually a FUN day and relatively organized. I hate last minute planning, and really am not one to fly by the seat of my pants. My understanding is that the MOH is really supposed to do the planning for these events, so I've been trying to keep the ball rolling. But I don't really know what my friend and her fi want since there will be guys there too. I keep thinking that I would want my shower/bachelorette to be pretty well thought out in advance, especially if people are traveling a few hours to get there...so I'm trying to do the same for hers. But I sometimes feel like I'm overstepping or being obnoxious for talking about it all the time, or asking the same question multiple times because I never get an answer the first time.
I'm sure some of you have been in this same kind of situation. How did you handle it?
So ready to bring our families together and PARTY on April 13th, 2013!
