Hello, I thought I had MOH/BMs sorted but my MOH turned horrible and I'm left with my partners 15 year old sister as a potential BM. I don't want to sound horrible because I love her like she's my own sister, but I don't have anyone else to be excited with, especially dress shopping etc she's a typical 15 year old and cares more about the new iPhone than colour schemes (and I don't blame her!) but I feel so alone and have no one outside of my partner to share these special times with. I have no siblings and my mum doesn't care all that much. Has anyone else been through this/going through this? :(

My moh ditched me just b4 xmas after a disagreement..( not wedding related) 14yr friendship over in 2seconds.... just found out my only brother isnt coming the wedding. Cause my dad disowned me 5yr ago. & he has choice now to show where his loyalty is.... Not that he has said anything, My Sister in law told me, while we were discussing their daughters dress & shoes. ( my niece is bridesmaid) To be honest my other 2 bridesmaids are so busy with their own lives i am picking everything, & they have just gone along with it... Feels like no1 is interested.. Our mums are helping but i dont have that circle of girlfriends that you see in films all over excited & arranging wild hen do's... Very much doubt i will even have 1..

I am the same I have decided not to have BM’s or a MOH. I won’t be having a hen do. I haven’t even got a lot of replies from my invites. But if they don’t reply all that matters is you are marrying that special someone and they will always be there for you. Xx

i didn’t even have a friend to ask. i have 2 flower girls. and my brothers girlfriend i did ask to be moh but will be 39 weeks pregnant so she declined but she has been amazing. 2 friends i invited to the wedding both declined so i actually feel quite alone, No hen do as no one to invite. But at the end of the day only really need me and my fh to be there on the day. But it is upsetting all the same

I feel exactly the same! Both my parents have passed away. I don't have any close friends and my family isn't that interested. My bridesmaid is my 15yr old daughter who is a typical teen and would rather be on her phone. My other daughter is my flower girl and she's only 4. I'd love someone to ooo and ahh at dresses with me. I'm 40 and this is my first and only wedding.

My mum isn’t interested and I got 2 young girls one will be my maid of honour and the other will be my bridesmaid neither are interested in my wedding plans. I go next week for a wedding dress fitting n my mum has decided she’s going away. I’m doing it alone. I’m annoyed and cried but I have to deal with the fact that my mum just doesn’t care. But at least I can go try my dress on again.
