Has anyone really stepped up and helped you plan? Who has been the most helpful with wedding planning? Friends or family?
Definitely my mom. She is helping to plan a second celebration party, and she is helping to plan a bridal shower as well, so she has been very involved in the plans. I also vent to her about everything lol. Other than that, it's mostly me and my FH making most of the decisions together.
Money wise, our parents. My dad is chipping in 15% of the total bill so far, and fiance's parents are gifting us a honeymoon (within given amount).
Advice wise, wedding party and a friend group of recent/current brides. It's like a geo-targeted wedding wire forum! Same geographical location, same large group of friends, same general mind-set, etc. So thankful for these girls (and parents)!
My mom and grandma have helped quite a bit to help with deocorations, favors and set up. MoH stepped up for bachelorette and night before plans. FH is dealing with hotel stuff and helping with the caterer.
In terms of money, my mom. But otherwise, it's just me, the wedding blogs, and these forums. It's been really stressful because everyone (and by everyone I mean my family) has an opinion about how they think things should go, but no one really understands the cost of a wedding and what it takes to actually plan the whole thing. Plus, no one in my family has planned anything "fancy" that has taken place outside of my little hometown & involves things like professional caterers and RSVPs...so online resources have been a big help.
