- Wedding: July 2013
I am having problems deciding who to be in my small wedding party. I have 1 sister, who is going to be a bridesmaid. and I want to have 1 maid of honor and 2 bridesmaids to keep things symmetrical and small. I do NOT want to just expand the bridal party to include certain people.
I have a good friend from highschool, whom I am considering to be my maid of honor. However this friend is always complaining about finances and I’m worried might not be up for planning things, or even spending money on my wedding. I have another friend from highschool who I have been close with, who shares my financial opinions, we have similar tastes and who I think would plan better… but I’m not entirely certain she should be the Maid/Matron of Honor either. both these friends would be extremely upset if they are not in my wedding.
I also have 2 friends from college, 1 I consider a better friend, she was my roommate, and even though I didn’t hang out with her more quantity wise, the quality of our friendship I consider to be stronger.
The other friend from college, well we were basically inseparable for several years, however mostly partying and drinking together. Since college, we have grown apart and kept in touch mainly by email. An incident happened with this friend about 9 months ago regarding my health, and I realized that she really does not care about my health/general well being, and we are definitely not as close anymore. I think this friend will be very upset/angry if I wouldn’t ask her to be a bridesmaid.
so basically I have 4 friends, and only want 2 of them in my wedding and don’t want to hurt people’s feelings, or cause drama.
any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated!!!
