- Wedding: September 2010
About three months ago my cousin called to say that she had gotten engaged and asked if i would be her bridesmaid. I was so suprised as i wuld never have expected it and i said yes. Having thought about it im not sure its a great idea for several reasons;
Ive not been well since last year and have recently had to give up work, i can no longer drink or stay up late (I feel dreadfull if im out past 10pm) so a hen party and being expected to stay up late at the wedding would just be a nightmare. She lives an hour from me so i would struggle to keep fittings and other commitments as i struggle with driving.
Also we have never been that close, we meet up every 6 months or so and never chat on the phone and rarely on txt. I feel it is a bit of an odd choice that she has asked me….
Im geting married late next year, although we have not yet set a date as im too poorly. We are having a very small ceremony and whilst she will definatly have an invite as she is family i do not feel i will want to ask her to be bridesmaid.
I really do not want to offend her or cause problems within our family….i dont know what to do…
