- Wedding: November 2010
I am having 6 bridesmaids. One is a friend from childhood who is like a sister to me, another is my fiance’s sister who I definitely wanted in it, the other 4 are close friends from college. Although I don’t see them much anymore, they are part of my heart and I feel close to them, they are all very supportive. However, of those friends from college, we all shared a house together in college. THere is another girl that lived with us too, but I already had more bridesmaids than my fiance had groomsmen, so I just couldn’t ask her. She wasn’t always with the rest of us when we hung out, so naturally I felt closer to the other girls. I love her to death and struggled with the decision, but I wasn’t in her wedding recently either, but she didn’t have any of the girls from the house in it whatsoever, so it didn’t seem odd. She is the only one that we all lived with that I didn’t ask. But that was 3 years ago so over time I have seen the other girls here and there, but not her. I asked her to be a program attendant because I still wanted her to be part of it, but I told her I didn’t want her to feel obligated to the role since she just got married herself! She hasn’t responded yet, and I’m kind of worried. I talked to another bm about it who knows her well, and she said she thinks it will be fine knowing her and that I should just have who I felt closest to.
