    Family! My mom has been helping with DIY projects and aunts/cousins have been helping me make decisions.

    My dad! It's crazy but hes so adorable would have never thought he'd be the one helping me. We are thousands of miles apart at the moment but it's been great! Wish my mom would help but drama stops every family!

    Definitely my mom! She has been a godsend through all of the planning.

    So far, both friends and family. We haven't done anything in terms of big projects as of yet. But my FMIL sends me venues on the daily and my MOH checks out my pinterest board and tells me her opinions.

    My mom so far, sometimes it's a bit much but she has for sure helped a lot.

    Were still early in the process, but both my cousin and best friend have been really helpful so far.

    My FMIL has been a god send. She has given advice every step of the way (when I ask for it, she is not overbearing at all). She also planned the cutest engagement party. My fiance has been writing some checks too, that's the best help haha

    Everyone has been so helpful in so many different ways. My mom is helpful in calming me down. His mom is helpful because his 2 older siblings are already married so she has some good tips from experience! My maid of honor is incredibly supportive and has great ideas, which I knew she would be, that's why I picked her! And one of my bridesmaids is getting married a month after me, so we bounce ideas off of each other all the time

    It is so cute when dad's help! You know he cares, but when he asks questions and offers opinions it makes it extra special My dad and step-mom decided they would like to pay for our photographer. Shortly after they made that decision my dad started sending me links to photographers' websites he thought I should check out. It was so thoughtful!

    Yes it is! I would have never thought he would step in. I'm deployed right now so it cracks me up when he told me he printed out tons of caterers and options and he was going to give them a buzz when he got into the office 😂

    If my FH counts, I'd say he's been a big help in planning. He's been contacting the vendors when I can't seem to find the time of day to do it. Outside of that, I guess my parents since they paid for the dress and gathered family addresses but they have also been the cause of some of my headaches.

    My mom, most definitely. She's the one I bounce everything off of. I'm starting to feel kinda bad for her! lol

    I've pretty much done everything on my own because I've wanted to. FH has contributed when I've asked him his opinion on something. My mom has paid for everything so she's definitely been the biggest help!

    Ooo that’s a hard one, mom and maid/matron of honors! Probably my mom more just because she doesn’t work and is so excited lol

    I say both! We kept a lot of things secret because it was a small wedding. We didn’t ask for much help but for engagement party, bridal shower and bachelorette party my girls were the best same as my mom and aunt. Huge help!
    I also got help and great advice from our wedding coordinator and photographer. They were the best!

    Uh, probably friends. I don't really need much help at the moment. My FMIL is trying to help, but we don't agree on much and tries to do things her way, so yeah...
