I say go for it!

If the others baulk, and I really do not see a reason why, remind them that this is an addition person to give ideas to your bridal shower, and help with the expensives of the bachelorette party.

If you want her besides you on your day, do it. Let your other bridesmaids know that you are adding one more lady to the group and then arrange a meet and greet?

I think it’d be fine – One of my bridesmaids backed out in February, my wedding is in September… I added a new bridesmaid in March, and it’s been great for all involved! And she didnt feel slighted by being asked later either!

I agree!  I think you should go for it.  Ultimately, it’s a statement that you want her standing up there next to you when you begin your marriage.  I think that it’s still far enough out from the wedding that it won’t come across as an “after thought.”

I say you should add her. I did the same recently! I added a friend 3 months after I asked my BM’s. None of my BM’s said anything either, other than the more the merrier!
