My friends and in laws have been most helpful with planning and creating ideas. Most of my list concludes friends and people we actually speak to today with few family members. My wedding party will be 3 friends my SIL and my cousin . I went from wanting a big wedding to a more small intimate wedding so that we wouldn’t feel the need to invite people we don’t really speak to or haven’t spoken to in years .
Most helpful would have to be my parents and maid of honor. His mother hardly wants anything to do with me because she wanted her son to be with someone the same race as them so she tries to ruin things all the time. We are inviting close family and our friends.
My friends are being super supportive. My little sister is a great BM. Twin is lke she could care less. LOL. But in her defense she gifted us $700 dollars so essentially she is the most helpful. My FMIL is the one with the most drama if you will. She has invited I don't know how many extra people to our day. I have never seen anything like it. She means well so I am rolling with it.
My FW is the most helpful.. so family? ☺️ My sister has been pretty rad.. she gifted me a portion of my dress and will be planning/hosting our shower. My Mom is super helpful too, although she’s having a hard time finding a dress! Fingers crossed she finds “the one” soon! My FMIL is wonderful too but she’s out of state and my FSILs are also out of state. My friends aren’t really involved.. maybe I should involve them more. We are older so my FW and I are running the show!
Some people offered their help if we need anything (no monetary, we’re paying for it). My 13 years old niece kind of begs me to help us, she knows about wedding because she watched Friends, not sure how that makes her an expert. But we aren’t in the phase that we need help yet.
I'd have to say we've kept most of planning between us 2. So nobody has been super helpful. That being said my mother and sister have been driving me crazy. Which is why we stopped informing people of our progress. On a bring said, my FHs parents have been really supportive and calming.
Okay so our families are super supportive and everyone is contributing to help us pay for the wedding but my mom and my mother in law are stressing us out soo much but we just have to remind ourselfs and each other that its our wedding day we are gettting married not them they can have an opinion but its our choice and they can hate it but its what gonna make us happy thats what matters. As far as friends go we dont really have any we are bestfriends and we have acquaintances but not really people we can call frinds so no worries or stress about that thank goodness!
Oh boy my fiances family and my aunt are drama. We wanted a very small wedding and instead we're having a big wedding. Was so not what I wanted. If we invite xyz we have to invite the rest of the fing alphabet.
My parent and my bridesmaids are the most helpful. My girls are are itching to help with the diy projects. I still have well of 400 days till my wedding. On the other hand my soon to be mother in law has been a pain. She hates my venue, because it has portable toilets and the reception barn “seems dated”. Mind you I’m going for a rustic country look.
My MOH is being SUPER helpful, and my mom and FSIL are both bringing all the drama. Knew my MOH would be super helpful, she's a Hufflepuff. Knew my mom would bring all the drama, prepared for it, I'm honestly just eating popcorn over it.Didn't quite expect FSIL to do it, but I am not surprised.
Most helpful: Wedding invite and program designer! She has gone above and beyond to capture our "essence" and make it flow!
Least Helpful: Matron of Honor - all in her feelings because several people have thrown me bridal showers and she feels like it was her job and I allow too many other people to do it....no communication with her in about 6 weeks
Star Award goes to FH...he has been helpful, caring, a good listener, calms me down when I get riled up. His most often quoted phrase is. "What does it matter? At 1:37 pm on August 31st, you will be my wife"!

Girl I am in the same situation. And then they had the audacity to ask if we can invite one of their friends and their daughter when they well know we have a 100 person limit and already invited 125 (over invited so we reach our number) so my FH told them if they want to invite them that's fine they can be on the B list or they (his parents) could pay for their plates ($117) because he isn't because he doesnt know them only knows of them. I was like "hell yeah put that foot down" 🤣
