We've already gotten a lot planned for our wedding and a significant amount of money invested (it will be May 29, 2021). We are getting so much done as soon as possible because my fiance and I are also planning to build a new house this year. We don't want to stress about too many wedding details next year.
My bridal ladies have been awesome! That being said, the groomsmen, best man, ring bearer & flower girl (their parents) haven't done much of anything. I mean, they all said yes, but that's about it. I really want them to be more involved ... simple discussions/opinions or even to check in now and again. How can we get them more excited and involved in our wedding planning?
One other issue: When my FH asked his mother (twice now) about the rehearsal dinner, she didn't respond. Not a yes, no, or even maybe. Just nothing. The wedding party will be paying for their own attire. My parents are taking care of the venue, bar and catering, and we are covering all other expenses. How can we get an answer about the rehearsal dinner from my future MIL? Should we ask again or just assume she's not going to host one? What alternatives are there? We can't budget in another large expense.
