Hi fellw aussie bee =)

I tend towards the less bridesmaids the less drama you will have, but this girl sounds like she is a good friend. I guess the biggest thing is to make sure you’re not asking her just to even out the numbers. If you want her with you on the day and in all your wedding photos, go for it!

Maybe think on it for a few days before you make your decision. Good luck =)

@NearlyMrsRad:  I think she would be honoured to be honest, especially if you explain to her you would have loved to have her from the start but unfortunately finances didn’t allow but things have changed and you’d love her to be involved. I would defs understand and i’m sure she will appreciate it. Maybe think of a cute way to ask her

She sounds like a nice person… very considerate friend.

I’d ask her, 6 months lead time is still enough so as to to appear NOT as a complete after-thought.

Let us know how it turns out,

PS… If the others are ALL relatives, you can tell her that was your first priority… family first.  Now you’d love if she was there as your BFF.

If she is a good friend I would go with what Missy_Star said….I wouldn’t be concerned about being offensive to the Bridesmaid or Best Man who pulled out, especially if you had an even number of Groomsmen and Bridesmaid or Best Man (what was your Fiance supposed to do drop a GM?)

Does she know that one of your Bridesmaid or Best Man pulled out?

Just explain the situation and ask her. I wouldn’t mind if a bride asked me if somebody dropped out. The worst that can happen is that she declines!

I think you should ask her. I am just afraid that she might take it the wrong way and actually do feel like she is the “second pick”. I would talk to her and choose your words carefully so there isn’t drama.
