- Wedding: June 2014
I’m planning on asking my wonderful best friend to be MOH, and two FSILs to be BMs. FI has four guys that he plans on asking to be in the wedding. This leaves me with one more space (yes, I know we don’t have to have an equal number of BM and GM, but I prefer to have them equal).
I grew up with friend A and friend B, and can’t ask one without the other. FI said he would ask one more GM so we would each have 5 total… perfect, right? Here’s the dilemma – I’ve started to become close with friend C, who is the wife of one of the GMs. They live about 4 hours from us so we don’t see them often, but we have plans to see them at least three different times this summer.
I have only known her for about a year, and only spent time with her four or five times, but each time we have just ‘clicked’ and had a great time. We text each other and call occasionally. Whenever we make plans for the four of us to get together, it’s her and I calling and texting to make the plans. I’m not sure if it would seem odd that I would ask someone that I haven’t known that long/don’t see that much to be in the wedding. On the other hand, I don’t see friend A or friend B that often anymore and feel like the friendships have grown more distant.
If you were in my shoes would you ask childhood friends A and B, who you don’t spend as much time with anymore, or ask friend C, a new friend that you haven’t spent much time with yet? Any advice is appreciated!
