- Wedding: July 2013
Bees, I’m so anxious about who to chose to be in my bridal party. I feel like I have so many senstive friends, and I really don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. I am already certain on 3, 2 of my best friends, and my cousin. However I have more contenders:
Roommate: Lived with her for 5 years. However some of those years were very rockey. She is nice to me most of the time. I usually get really good advice from her, and she does genuinely care for me. Just sometimes feels more like a tenant, landlord deal, then a friendship.
Best Friend from college: Sadly, I haven’t spoken much to her recently. She was busy with law school, and such. I still love her dearly, and consider her a best friend
Another friend from college: She does make an effort to stay connected. However she’s a big drinker. It kind of turns me off. She has already asked if she was in my bridal party. I told her not to get her hopes up. :/ Maybe that was mean, but I explained how I don’t want a huge bridal party, and she seemed ok with it. I think she will expect to be a greeter or something
Other cousin: Cousin I already decided to be in my party’s sister. They are very close, and I feel like I can’t have one without the other. I’m close to her too.
FI’s cousin: I don’t know her very well, she is 9 yrs younger then i am. FI’s mom is insisting that I include her, because that is his mom’s only niece, and pretty sure her only brother will be a groomsman.
Friend from work: She no longer works with me, but we still hang out every couple weeks. She helps me alot, because she just got married last year. I was not in her bridal party. I would like her to continue helping, but I don’t know if I have room in my bridal party to honor her for it! However, if i chose her, I feel like my roommate would be jealous.
What would you do????????
