    I have done a lot alone but everyone is beginning to step up and my MOH is so great with ideas.

    A little of both. FH and I have done a lot of the work ourselves currently, but we will probably get more help as we get closer to our date.

    As of now, my FMIL and the Best Man (who is a mutual friend of both me and my FH). My mom and sister (the MOH) try their hardest, but they’re an hour and a half away, so they can’t do much on a day to day basis.

    My FH. He is invested in all the decision making and keeps me calm during the process. He has always been knocking stuff off on the list by himself. It's been very helpful

    My matron of honor has. However due to her work schedule/mine as well and the distance we live from each other there hasn’t really been as much planning help as we would have liked however it’s all good. I know she has a ton going on (so do I) and time flies. Plus I do love doing things on my own and not wanting to bother anyone with anything.
    Main thing is that all this would have been SO much more easier if we had won the lottery 🤣 or had incomes that we could have afforded like a wedding planner or something on top of everything else.

    No one really but my mom at least listens to me when I call her to talk about wedding stuff. We’ve never had a big wedding in the family so it’s not something they are well versed in.

    No one really. I've had to do most of it myself. My niece did take me dress shopping though, so I guess i'd say her. My nephew is going to be setting up the venue, so he will be pretty helpful He loves me and he wants it to look like I want

    Probably our families because they are helping us with the final bill of the whole shindig

    Definitely family. My future mother in-law and my future sister in-law have stepped up for stuff. Along with my parents.

    My best friend from college has been soo helpful and gracious! She is patient and when I'm stuck on an idea she offers suggestions. She is also my MOH~

    My coordinator has been the most helpful . We really appreciate her doing this time. If it wasn't for her I would be really stressed right about now.

    Without a doubt, my mom is my wedding hero! I've had drama from other family members, including my sister who doesn't approve of my choice in partners. Friends come in a close second.
