ruphiolis:  Yes, I think that would be weird.  If you weren’t considering it before your dad put the idea in your head then I wouldn’t.

ruphiolis:  I wouldn’t. It might put her in an awkward situation (because who can say no without feeling bad or awkward) and it’ll be difficult for her to do stuff while out of state.

I know many brides have out of state BMs but they are usually closer to them (personally).

I’ve been in bridal parties with the oh-she’s-nice-I’ll-ask-her bridesmaid before and it rarely turns out well.

Frankly, yes, I think it’s weird to have a bridesmaid who you are not close with. Those people will be in your wedding photos and memories FOREVER, and it’s a big commitment for them as well, so I’d just choose your actual close friends or family.
