I need some advice regarding my bridal party dilemma. I already have seven Bridesmaid or Best Man and have been going back in forth with the eighth, one of my cousins. Awhile back when we had talked weddings, i had implied that she was a shoe in for a spot as one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man. Now that I am engaged, I realized that decision is alittle more difficult considering I have two other cousins who i was not intending on putting in the bridal party. The cousin I want in my Bridal Party is my age, we are born months apart, we live close to one another and we talk on a more consistent basis then I do with my other cousins. We are really close and I do want her as part of my big day. However, even though my other cousins are 4-5 years younger than me and we arent as close as my other cousin, i still do not want to hurt their feelings as i obviously love them and dont want them to feel slighted.
I thought a good idea would be to make my one cousin the Bridesmaid or Best Man and have my other two cousins involved by doing a reading at the ceremony. Do people think this would be a good remedy or does anyone have any suggestions or do people just think all cousins or no cousins? Any help with be greatly appreciated, especially from brides confronted with a similar situation
