Just starting to put together a wedding party…I’m going to ask a few girlfriends around my age (27), but one of my dearest friends is 70, and I would love to have her up there with us (not as MOH). Is that too weird? FH thinks it’s strange, but is open enough to let me make the call.

Ask who you want to ask. Age – young or old – doesn’t matter.

There is no age limit on friendship. So no age limit on bridesmaids.

I think she would be thrilled to be asked! I dont think there is an age limit. If she feels awkward about it she can always turn it down.

Totally a non-issue. Your friends are your friends!

Totally ask her. I was guessing when I read the title this would be about someone too young, not too old.

No, there is no age limit.

Aw, that’s sweet! I see no reason why she can’t be a bridesmaid! 🙂

Agree with everyone else – there’s no age limit. Ask her if you want!

No age limit for bridesmaids. I’ve seen articles recently where brides had their grandmother as a bridesmaid and I’m sure Cyndi Lauper had her grandmother as a bridesmaid. Ask her, she can say no if she wants.

Eh…I’m going to disagree. Having a 70 yo bridesmaid seems weird to to me. I think I’d wonder if she’s the MOB or GMOB

Vem922 : I think it’s sweet that you want her to be a BM. She may be thrilled that you want her to be a bridesmaid. If she feels awkward about it she can always graciously decline but still be touched that you asked her. 🙂

There shouldn’t be an age limit on who you want in your wedding party.

Ask her! If she is a dear friend, there is nothing weird about it. Friendships come in many forms and I think this woman will appreciate you asking her. As long as you both are comfortable with it, no harm. It would be more awkward to have BM that you aren’t close with.
I plan on having my godchild (cousin) as a junior BM in my wedding someday, and she’ll probably be around 8 or 9. There is no age limit imo.
