@Zaraj_Will:  Personally, I wouldn’t add them. I’m a big believer in keeping the bridal party small, and that you can be friends with girls – and even do wedding things with them – without putting them in your bridal party.

And I’d be very hesitant about adding the girl who you’ve got a damaged friendship with. By all means invite her to the wedding, but you don’t want to risk things going bad again if you add her. You want stable friends as BMs, not volatile ones.

@Zaraj_Will:  again this is just my opinion, but I think putting them in matching dresses (without being bridesmaids) would be more of a bother to them. Here some ways to honour friends I either did myself, or have seen other people do:

* Ask them to do a reading in the ceremony.

* Invite them to the bachelorette party.

* Ensure they’re in some special wedding photos.

* Thank them in the wedding program and/or a wedding speech. (In my part of the world, the groom always does a speech at the wedding where he thanks people, and at our wedding I insisted on doing a thank you speech also).
