My fiancé and I decided on our bridal party back in June. We decided on 4 on each side and I have asked my girls. We are now contemplating adding 2 more on each side as I regret not including 2 other girls as well. How can we go about doing this without making them feel like they were a second thought?

We’re actually thinking about doing the same, but we currently have 6 BMs and GM. One has literally begged to be a bridesmaid so she doesn’t care when I ask and the other probably wouldn’t mind either. I’d just say you wanted a good time to ask them, they’re important to you, etc. If they didn’t want to be in it since they were asked later than that’s their choice, but hopefully they would be excited regardless.

This happened to me! I was in a friend’s wedding, and was the last one asked and it was far into the process. She simply said that she was sorry she hadn’t been able to originally ask me (go ahead and acknowledge it, they will know) but that she would be thrilled to have me in her party. That’s all I needed! I didn’t feel bad, I knew they had constraints to begin with, and I had a blast!
Nothing wrong with being invited late into the game 🙂

@mrsdfarrar6714: I was the last BM asked by one of my girlfriends. We’d had a falling out a couple months before she got engaged, and she asked her BM like 5 mins after she got the ring. A couple of months after she got engaged we picked back up where we left off and I didn’t really think anything about not being in ther bridal party (had we not had a falling out, no question I would have been there from the get go). But another few months passed and she asked me if I would be a BM and I was totally fine with being asked later than the rest. I guess the situation is a little different, but hopefully they won’t view it as an insult and rather an honour. And if they do feel it’s an insult, then hopefully they respectfully decline – you don’t want any drama. But the fact that you want to include them and the way you mention them in your post, they probably would be honoured! I say go for it!
