I am in the process of choosing bridesmaids and it is unexpectantly the hardest decision in the world. HELP:
- “Student” – the best man’s Girlfriend, has an annoying personality and a “everything’s about me attitude”.
- “Banker” – the groomsman’s Girlfriend, quiet, we do not hang out as much as with #1, however seems excited/interested in the wedding process.
- “Friend” – a single friend who sometimes goes MIA, a no-show to events etc. However want to include her since she’s great while she’s actually at the party.
What do you guys think? which order should I put them in?…does it make sense to put the 2 girls with their Boyfriend or Best Friend,or does it matter?

Are you asking about order of current bridesmaids or choosing bridesmaids? If its the latter than you dont have to ask someone just because a boyfriend is in the wedding. If they are all in the wedding then yes, pair them up.
If its purely order. I would do alphabetical or height as a means of making it easy and not offending anyone due to order.

im a little confused too are you trying to decide on bridesmaids? or have you already chosen? im with lefeymw on this one. you dont have to ask them just because their boyfriends are groomsmen. I am allowing my bridemaids to have their dates/boyfriends sit with us at the head table so that they dont feel left out.

there are many posts on WB are about bridesmaid drama. often i think “why did you even choose these women?” the way that you have described yours…well, why would you ask someone with an annoying ego and personality to be your bridesmaid? are you even close friends with the second? and do you trust the third at all? or is it just because 2 happen to be going out with your FI’s groomsmen and one is the life of the party? where are your good friends, the ones that you like and can trust?

The annoying one decided she will not be a bridesmaid anymore !!! YAY lol, sometimes life solves problems for you:))
Thanks for listening to my rant, sorry for being so confusing with my post. I finally decided to go with the GFs that will not dissapoint and I am very happy with the decision. None of the girls will be paired up with their boyfriends, to make everyone feel included.
All my closest friends are married w/kids – and due to my religion I cannot have married friends as bridesmaids…:S
