You kind of have to be straight forward and honest.  “FH and I have decided to have a small bridal party.  We want to include everyone, but that just isn’t possible.  I am sorry.”  You might think about asking her to do something else, like personal attendant, or guest book attendant, or something like that. 

Welcome to the Hive!  Happy Planning!

Please don’t ask her to be a guest book or personal attendant. Those are jobs, not honours. Bridesmaid and readers are honours, everything else is like ‘you were almost good enough, but nit quite’.

You also might want to wait to at least a year from or wedding (or less, I did 6 months) to ask your bridesmaids. Relationships can change and you might end up with regrets. Just read the boards, you’ll see tons of venting/complaining posts.
