I was in my friends wedding party last summer, which was a great honor, but I don’t think that I want to have her in my bridal party. We are not that close friends and I have many more friends I would like to have standing by my on my big day. Is it awful not to ask her to be a bridesmaid if I was just her’s a year ago?

You do not have to ask here. There is no hidden rule about asking someone to stand up at your wedding when you were in theirs. I am in a similar situation and do not plan on asking the other girl. We are not close friends anymore, and would much rather have my closest friends be in the wedding. She may have her feelings hurt, which I suspect will happen to my friend, but it is not as though you are stabbing her in the back. Afterall, it is your wedding and people may not always like your decisions, but when they plan theirs (or if they already have), they can do what they want. Hope this helps!

Nope, you don’t have to ask her. If she still really would like to help out, perhaps she could play a role in one of your many to-do’s the day of. Good luck!
