I’m confused when you say she was honored to be asked? Did she think she was going to be asked in the beginning? How did she react when she ended up not being chosen?

Only you know how well this girl will react to being asked now. I personally would be a little offended if I thought I’d be a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding then asked after the fact just to fill a spot. Like an afterthought, for lack of better words-but thats just me.

I’m a bit confused too. she was honoured to ask, meaning you already asked her? Or honoured to be on guestbook duty?

Regardless, I was in the exact same sitation as you a few months, at least your bridesmaid didn’t demand the dress YOU bought to be given to her anyways. Rude.

Anyhoo, ask the friend! I did, she was super happy!! Just make sure you let her know that you really are happy she is one and she i not just a repalcement.

If you think she’d be honored, why are you hesitating?

There’s no hiding from the fact that guestbook is a lesser honour than Bridesmaid or Best Man. So she already knows she wasn’t a first choice Bridesmaid or Best Man. So I’d ask her. And if she’s sweet enough to be thrilled to be on the guestbook, I’m sure she’ll be happy about it.

@Whitney818:  My good friend asked me to be a bridesmaid after her friend stepped down (for whatever reason). I didn’t feel like I was filling a hole or a “last minute replacement.” Didn’t bother me at all, I had a good time and I was glad she asked me to share a special moment with her.
