I say go for it! And be completely honest about the situation when you ask her – I think she will be honoured that you wanted to add her this whole time!

I agree, definitely ask her, and just be completely honest! Explain that you’re learning on the fly with this whole wedding planning thing, and were thrilled to discover after the fact that you could, in fact, have 5 bridesmaids after all!

It’s never too late!!!  You can put 2 girls with 1 guy … what’s the big deal about that!

Is there a reason your FH can’t find a 5th guy??

And just tell her what you told us, that you thought you had to have the same numbers, but now you know otherwise. Just make her feel wanted, like you don’t care about numbers or any of that as long as she’s up there with you.

Ask her! I was asked to be a bridesmaid in a similar situation. I wasn’t offended at all, I was actually very flattered. 2 women can easily walk down with the last GM, it actually looks rather cute with one woman on each arm. (and it helps that he will feel extra lucky also) 🙂 Good luck!

🙂 I was JUST in this situation. I had four and he had four, but there were two more I was seriously on the fence with. I finally deced to add them because I wanted them up there, even if it meant having an uneven party. We now have 6 girls and 4 guys.

I blogged about my dilemma here: http://jessicalynnwrites.blogspot.com/2009/07/will-you-be-mypart-one.html
