- Wedding: June 2017
I recently decided that I didn’t want bridesmaids in my wedding, mostly because I thought having my brother as the best man and having my fiance’s sister as the maid of honor would be just as special.
Here is the thing, my fiance and I got engaged 6 years ago and within that time we had two children and seperated for one year. We are stronger than ever now and would like to get married. At the time of our engagement, 6 years ago, I asked 6 girls to be in my wedding party. This was a mixture of my close cousins, his sister, 2 of my besties and one really close friend. Now the situation has changed. Am I still obligated to ask the original 6 to be in the wedding? I think this was another reason why I chose not to use bridesmaids because I didn’t want to be binded to using the original 6. Not that I’m no longer close to any of them because I still am….
But I have a core group of friends and we’ve been friends forever. They’re the sister’s I never had. There are 7 of us. I’ve been in 3 of their weddings as a bridesmaid. Having my besties there for me every step of the way would be so amazing and I’m sure they would be just as honored. At the same time I wouldn’t be able to leave his sister out of the wedding party either. And I really wouldn’t want 8 maids! WOW…that would be a huge wedding party! Also, I had always planned on asking my cousin to be my maid of honor because I’m really close to her and she introduced us and she has been completely supportive to both of us throughout our whole relationship but I am close to her sister too, and would feel bad about leaving her out too! OMG….what to do, what to do! Please help me out Bees….Please!
