Hi Bees, need your good advice
I asked my bridesmaids MONTHS ago, I have 5 of them and they are marvelous ladies. My Fiance just asked his groomsmen, he has 5, but would really like to add a 6th. It so happens that I am quite close to the wife of potential groomsman #6 and their new baby, and would be happy to have her in the ceremony as well (balancing things out and also avoding weird family split up for things like pictures, rehersal dinner, etc)
But is it werid???? Would she think she was just being asked b/c her husband was?

I think it would be nice! Especially if you’re close to the couple. Why not take them to dinner one night and ask them together?

I actually asked a bridesmaid after having my other bridesmaids in place. I was completely honest with her and said I was reevaluating my relationships with people in my life and realized she was so important to me even though we had lost touch. I also got her a really cute “will you be my bridesmaid” card from etsy.
Don’t mention the “balance” thing to her or she’ll definitely feel like just an add-on. Tell her that you have been thinking about the fact that you’ve been spending a lot of time with her family and would love to have her as a part of the big day. I think you’re fine.

I think you should be fine! Her husband is being added at the same time she is 🙂 sounds pretty perfect to me!
