- Wedding: April 2010
Hi all…I am new to this site. I have actually read several of the message boards and gotten great advice but I never needed to sign up and write a post until now. I am getting married in less than 2 months and I have a really sticky situation at hand involving bridesmaid’s and my fiance’s family! So, here’s the problem.
About two years ago, my fiance’s cousin got married to a girl that had been a friend of the family for several years. Over the last couple of years her and I have become really close. I would probably call her my best friend these days. I’ve wanted to make her a bridesmaid from the very beginning of our engagement, but I had actually chosen not to because my fiance has two sisters that I’m not asking to be bridesmaids. I felt like it would cause too many problems so I just decided to have my sister as the maid of honor and only bridesmaid. Lately though, this girl and I have gotten closer and she has been helping my sister with bridal showers and has always been there to offer such good advice. It seems like she is already in the role of bridesmaid without the title. She knows my dilema and that I want her to be in the wedding, but that I don’t want to step on any toes. The last few weeks I’ve been thinking that I may regret it if I don’t make her a bridesmaid though. This is my day and I don’t want to miss out on anything.
So, the question is…Is it wrong to ask a girl who is part of their family to be in my bridal party and not ask his sisters? They are included in the wedding in other ways, but I’m not close enough to them to ask them to be my bridesmaids. I really need advice on this! Please Help!
