    A lot of groomsmen stepped up and help when we asked for it but one person who stepped up without being asked was my aunt!! She is my Godmother and brought a bunch of stuff to the wedding without being asked just in case I forgot something or needed it. If she saw something wasn’t perfect she would go in and fix it she was so helpful and I was so grateful to have her at my wedding yesterday

    N O B O D Y. Everyone I talk to seems to just nod at what ideas I’m throwing at them, and move on from conversation. The closer we get to our date and the more I do things alone, it makes me want to say F it all we are going tomorrow to get married and truly elope (THE WAY I WANTED TO), without guests (which my fiancé wanted).

    Surprisingly, my mom. She and I have had a rocky relationship in the past, but she has really turned around and has been having a huge positive impact on my wedding.

    Members of my bridal party have been the most helpful with my decisions and calming me down when dealing with all the drama. My friend, Donna who is also my daughter's godmother has been extremely helpful from the very beginning.

    FH really. We are having our wedding where we live and both sides of our family will be flying in. That said, I've included my mom as much as possible with selecting colors, flowers, linens, cake design, stationary, etc. and dress shopping (via FaceTime).

    I was so lucky to have the best support system. My MOH took her role very seriously and did a ton. My mom and 3 aunts all played big roles. One bridesmaid in particular did a lot. And one friend was just the best moral support I could have asked for.

    Both sides. My mom has been super helpful, and my MOH has been my right hand on anything I get confused flustered or just need a second opinion on (after I ask FH, lol)

    Probably my Nana, sometimes she asks too many questions that raises my anxiety, but I know it's because her heart is in the right place and she just wants to help. She offered to buy our flowers, organize a centerpiece party, and is pitching in with my bridal shower. LOVE HER SO MUCH

    My fiancé’s family has really helped us plan. His parents gave us their brand new home for the wedding and reception and the idea to have home cooking instead of catering.

    Neither. I'm left to do things by myself.

    My mother in law and my future sister in law. She got engaged a month before us but she still has 2 more years before she walks down the aisle. So she gets to see what we do wrong and not make the same mistake.

    My cousin is willing to help me and helps me come up with ideas, and of course my fiancé.

    Honestly, I'm doing it myself, my FH has been helping, but my step mom has been the most helpful helping me pick, and do the DIYs
