I have many friends who got married and never once was asked to be a bridesmaid. I just want to ask is anyone else had this happen to them. I am fine with it but feel like i was never a good enough friend to be asked to be a bridesmaid. I am gettign married soon and it just hit me I was never a bridesmaid.

I have not been invited to a single friends wedding yet, so I certainally haven’t been a bridesmaid either.

I’ve been a bridesmaid once, but that girl won’t be one of mine. Out of my six BMs, three are married, and I wasn’t a Bridesmaid or Best Man for a single one (though I didn’t know one of them when she got married). Oh well. These are the girls I want, and they’re *my* good friends. They’re the ladies I want by my side.

@GreenEyedMoon: I am very happy with the 6 ladies I picked. My Matron of honor is my BFF and married. My BFF had a small wedding in Italy so did not do a bridal party.

I’m getting married and have yet to be a bridesmaid. I was a flower girl when I was 8, for my cousin’s first marriage, but that’s it. I guess no one I know is really close to marriage right now.

I’m 58 years old, have been married twice, but have never been a bridesmaid. At this point, I’m assuming it’s not going to happen.
In fairness, I kept my own wedding party (both times) very small and family only.

My sister and I were both each other’s Maid/Matron of Honor (she got married first). Besides that, I have never been a bridesmaid. Of the girls I asked, I think the one I know the longest will ask me. It was the first time she had been a bridesmaid and I know it meant a lot to her (and she was soooo helpful!). The other friend I really don’t know if she would ask me (and that hurts a little), and SIL isn’t planning on getting married and I think it’s also a little different as we’re now family, and not about to become family. I think she would at least include me somehow though.

I’m sure it wasn’t because you were never good enough! I’ve never been a Bridesmaid or Best Man either. Now that I think of it, no one really close to me has ever gotten married. My 3 BMs aren’t married yet (2 are single right now), so hopefully I’ll be asked to be in at least one of their weddings when the time comes. 🙂

@Juliepants: Thank you for the reassurance 🙂

I’ve never been a bridesmaid either – one of my girl friends chose not to have a bridal party at all, and the other one just had too many sisters and SILs to have room for friends.

On the bright side, you didn’t have to shell out $200 on a dress that you “can always shorten and wear again!” 🙂

Never was a bridesmaid either. 🙂 My best chance was at my brother’s wedding, but I barely knew his wife so that didn’t happen!
Look on the bright side, as least we never had to buy or wear any ugly bridesmaid dresses!!
HA! Diet Coke and I think alike. 🙂
