- Wedding: June 2009
Ok so this one may be a little long. Here it goes…i have been married once before. In my first wedding i had my childhood best friend as my Maid/Matron of Honor. So i am getting re-married next June. We are doing a very personal backyard wedding at my FIL’s home. This time I am going to have my 9 yr old daughter as my Maid/Matron of Honor (more just for the title than anything). And my 5 yr old son is going to be our best man. I think this will make both kids feel very important in the wedding. So i have asked my old friend to be one of the bridesmaids. She lives out of state about 12 hrs away. I had asked her about 3-4 months ago if she would be in the wedding. I just recenty sent her an email asking her again. We dont have the chance to talk much on the phone, we have opposite work schedules. But she has yet to answer me if she will be part of the wedding or not. How long am i supposed to wait to find out? I know that she will be here about a month before my wedding for an event in her family. I know that it will be costly for her to make 2 trips so close together and told her i understand if she cant make it. But at the same time I need an answer, but dont want to keep bringing it up nd sound pushy. I have talked with the other girls in the wedding and they are all going to start dress shopping next month, so I really need an answer from her. Should I just count her out since she hasnt given me a yes or no? Should I bring it up again? I need help!!
