- Wedding: July 2019
So I’ve worked with these two ladies for the last two years and have gotten pretty close with them both. And now I am engaged and trying to figure out my wedding party. One of the friends, lets call her Becca, just moved to another state a few months ago. There were a couple of things that happened when she moved that made me pretty mad, and we haven’t talked a whole lot since. Since Becca moved, the other friend and I, lets call her Stacy, have gotten even closer. Originally when my fiance and I started talking about wedding parties we were thinking we’d do 6 people (Stacy and Becca would both be included), but due to the size of the venue and costs, we decided to narrow it down to 5. So, I’ve decided not to ask Becca to be a bridesmaid because we just aren’t as close and I don’t see us being friends in 5 years (at least not close ones). But the problem is, I have to actually tell her this because Stacy is going to be a bridesmaid, and I know she’ll be mad about this (especially because she and Stacy are really close). How do I let her know that Stacy is a bridesmaid and she isn’t without hurting her feelings too bad?
P.S. I can’t just say she lives too far away because two of my other bridesmaids live even further away.
