MrsBlake2015:  If you’re friends with them, I say go for it! 2 of my ladies were originally my FIs friends that I have become close to. My friends sound like yours. I moved around a lot in my late teens/early 20s so I only have a couple good friends, and they can be flakey. My FIs friend group has been together since highschool… they all stayed in the area and stayed good friends, and now they’re adopting me into their tight knit group (which is AWESOME).

When he suggested I ask them in the wedding I was hesitant, but I’m happy I did. I know they’re be there for us, they’ve already helped a lot and their great people.

So… to circle back, yes! Absolutely ask them (again, providing you want to) and don’t feel weird about it… they’re your friends too!

You seem like such a nice person! Most folks would be freakin’ out and blaming their friends for dropping out. I have to say that I personally think that once you agree to be a bdsmaid, nothing besides being medically unfit to travel should stop you (your pregnant friend for example has a valid reason for not being there).

Anyhow, it sounds like your hubby’s friends’ wives would be very good.

Yes, ask them to be a part of your bridal party.  But also don’t feel obligated to have a bridal party at all (unless you really want it).
