- Wedding: September 2010
I’ve found this board very helpful and am hoping that you can help me out with some advice. I’m having a major dilemna with my bridesmaids! I have a close friend who has assumed that she is going to be a bridesmaid of mine – and I was in her wedding two years ago. However, I have been second thoughts because she is very domineering – she has very strong ideas about how things should be done and doesn’t heistate to express them. Frankly, I think she will drive me nuts and also is likely to put off my sister, mother and two friends who are bridesmaids for me.
I was already thinking about not asking her when I found out my FSIL had assumed she was in. I wasn’t going to ask her (mostly because she just had a baby and I didn’t think she would want to) but I definately don’t want to offend her, and I think family comes first so I’m going to put her in. Which means that also asking my domineering friend would leave me with more bridesmaids than I want and an uneven number. However, I’m dreading discussing it with her as I don’t think she’ll react well and I know she’ll be angry I have another friend in the wedding that she perceives as being less close (which is actually not the case).
Any advice would be much appreciated!
