I think you know your friends/family best, so you’ll have to gauge what will work with them or make them feel better.  But I got a suggestion from one of my friends who got married last year.  She had four people in her bridal party, and she didn’t tell any of them who was the maid of honor until closer to the wedding … she ended up not picking the girl who she had known the longest, and when my friend told her oldest friend she explained “this other bridesmaid has helped me with a lot of stuff for the wedding, and I’m simply picking her as maid of honor based off of how involved she’s been in the wedding process”.  As much as the oldest friend may not have liked it, she graciously admitted that it was true.  You could tell C that you’re adding K for that reason, because she’s been really helpful and involved with the wedding, and that you’ve really appreciated the help and want to do something to include her in the wedding which shows your appreciation.  That explanation is fair (to me anyway), and also might have the added effect of indirectly making C realize that she hasn’t been helping.  Good luck!
