- Wedding: June 2014
When I got engaged in October I picked my 6 bridesmaids. 2 are friends from high school, 2 are childhood friends, and 2 are FI’s sisters. We all go to school in different states so I don’t see them often but we try to keep in touch as much as possible. Well FI and I went to a concert last night with some high school friends. One of my friends was telling FI how she’s pretty disappointed I didn’t ask her to be a BM bc we were so close in high school and how she’d do anything for me, which is true. I was also considering asking my friend from college who was my freshman roommate, were in the same major have every class together, and she goes to bridal shows at school with me, but she lives 3 hours from me and I didn’t want her to feel obligated to go to showers,etc. Well Friend #1 and Friend #2 gave me engagement presents (none of other Bms, which is fine just saying) and are so excited about the wedding. FI wants me to ask them both to be in the bridal party and he has two friends he wants to ask as well. We want a fun wedding, lots of friends, no drama so I’m tempted to ask them but I worry others will be upset we didn’t pick them and it will cause drama. What do you ladies think, any advice?
