So far I have 1 maid of honor and 2 bridesmaids. I am confused as to whether or not I should ask another friend. I am 99% sure this friend would say yes to being my bridesmaid, she is very creative with planning and parties. She would also be another person to contribute to ideas and costs and she would be fun during the planning process and during the wedding. She is someone I like being around and we have some of the same tastes.
Background info: One of my bridesmaids now is always busy and I feel like she won’t be contributing much (ideas wise) and the two bridesmaids aren’t best friends with my maid of honor so I almost feel like I need someone who would be more helpful to my maid of honor regardless of friendship. Hope this makes sense.
So, do I ask my other friend or just keep my current 3 friends?

@jnov12: How many guys does your Fiance have?
It doesn’t have to be even, but if he could easily add one more, there’s no reason for you not to, especially if this girl is a close friend.

Personally, for me, I chose my bridesmaids based on the women in my life that were my best friends – I couldn’t imagine getting married without these girls standing by my side. This will be one of the most important days of your life and you want your most important people to be there to share in that day with you. I think that is what you should base your decision on, rather than who can help contribute what.

I agree with PeachBee: its something I could not imagine having them there for. I have 3 as well. I love these girls, they’re always there for me and always have been. Ever since our elementary school days.

I only have two! Four BM’s would be okay, but don’t make your disission on what you think this person will contribute to your wedding, but who you want around you during the big day!

@PeachBee– you worded it perfectly!
You are all right, if I want her in my wedding, she should be in my wedding! I guess I’m getting too worried about all the other little details, but who cares, it will all work out!
Thanks for the advice!
