- Wedding: September 2014 - Stevens Estate
I’m not sure if I did the right thing here:
I have this friend who I have know my whole life. She is also kinda related to me, she’s my uncle’s wife’s niece ( I guess that makes us some sort of distant cousin?) . Anyways..we were best friends all through childhood. Then we hit high school and drifted apart, but still saw each occasionally. She got married last year and did not ask me to be a bridesmaid. I was a little hurt but figured it was because we havn’t been as close in recent years. Now my wedding is approaching and I had my bridal shower last weekend. She was there and was super involved the whole time. I was a little nervous at my shower cause there were so many people there and all attention was on me. But she was making me feel more comfortable cause she had been through all this stuff already. She even sat next to me when it was time to open presents and wrote down everyone’s name who brought a gift so I know who to send thank you cards to. Even just having her up there next to me made me feel less anxious. My other bridemaids were handing us the gifts and after we opened them putting them all together so we could take them home (I only have 2 girls for bridemaids). Her being so helpful made me kind of wish I asked her to be in my bridal party. Then after the shower my mom came to me telling me that she was asking her why I didn’t ask her to be a bridesmaid.
Now I feel kind of regretful that I didn’t ask her. But whole reason I didn’t ask was because she never asked me to be in her bridal party, so I thought it would be awkward. But after the shower now I wished I just overlooked that and asked her anyway. It’s too late now cause the wedding is in 2 months. Should I say something to her? Or should I not cause it would make things weird.
