I had a similar situation–had just our sisters as BMs and that meant my two BFFs were not in the wedding. (Well, one married us, but that’s a bit different.) They completely randomly ended up with coordinatiing dresses as well. Anyway, we were jokingly calling them the “B team.” They were cool with it and thought it was funny. I also referred to them as my “secret bridesmaids” since they did way more briadesmaidey stuff than his sisters did. If the girl is cool you could do somehting like that. I also made sure my friends were in some of the pictures that we took before the ceremony too so we have that memory.

@bs942:  She’s a new friend, so don’t feel guilty about not having her in your bridal party. You can still have close friends who aren’t in the bridal party.

I say skip the t-shirts altogether. I think that’s better than presenting t-shirts to some girls but not others, while she (and perhaps other non-bridesmaids) are present.

She sounds like a great friend, so will be really understanding. I say dont change anything, and dont feel bad. Just make sure that she knows how appreciated she is, maybe a gift to be presented during speaches and special thanks for all her hard work and support. as soontobeMresBoo says, some pictures as well so that you have the memories. Sorry, the best i could come up with for her t would be wedding angel/fairy etc. magical creature that works for nothing…..but these may not be apropirate.
