So, I recently got engaged! YAY! Now the planning begins. We actually have a short engagement, 6 months, for our own special reasons. I am planning a destination wedding (our DREAM) in Jamaica and I have found amazing deals!! Anyway, on to the point of this post. I have 3 VERY best & closest friends, whom I would consider more like sisters. As of now, we are having only one person each for the bridal/wedding party, and I have no idea what I am going to do.
My best friend, A, lives 10 hours away, and has had a very positive influence on me. We lived together for about a year until she got married and moved away. So sad. We talk almost every day and I definitely want her by my side at the wedding. She was probably my first closest friend as an “adult”. lol I was also in her wedding.
Best friend, B, is a newer best friend, but we have been attached since day one. She is married to my fiance’s (weird saying that!!) very best friends as well, but as of now he is not in the wedding either. Groom has chosen his brother as the best man. This girl is my role model for life, she is a wonderful mother, wife, and all around wonderful person. We have so much fun and I feel I can confide in her with anything! BUT our “friend group”, if we even call it that anymore” is of about 8 couples, all of which I am close with the wives, girlfriends & I certainly don’t want to hurt any of their feelings.
Best friend, C, is a girl I grew up with, strayed from due to our lives’ agendas, and then got back together about 6 months ago. She is literally an angel. She is so fun and always has something nice to say about everyone. She is also recently engaged and has her date set for next year.
“Best friend”, D, is a girl who I have been friends with for a couple years. She and I have had our differences, and I feel like she would be mad at me if she wasn’t in the wedding. She always has this weird competition going with a lot of other girls, my FI calls her a “one-upper”. I think this one is out simply because she will probably end up causing drama, as she does daily, and make our day all about her. I hope I am not sounding like a brat, just we start to know patterns with our friends! I just don’t really know how to break the news to her, or tell her when she asks why she wasn’t chosen.
I want the first three girls standing by me! I don’t know what to do! Should I have my man increase his number of guys? He could certainly choose B’s hubby, that would be perfect.
Help! If I choose one, how do I choose? Would the others be upset if they were not MOH? or should I have 3 BMs (not bowel movements! ha)??
THANKS for reading this agonizing post of my true first world problems.
Love you Bee’s.
