Sorry you have to deal with that. I never even considered having someone I wasn’t close with in my bridal party.

I’m sorry!! This is exactly the reason my sisters will not be in my wedding! People think I’m crazy but we just aren’t close! And a wedding isn’t going to change that.

TG20 – I hear ya! Same situation, I was trying to make everyone else happy but myself, and it backfired. I think it drove us further a part than closer.

October is SO CLOSE! 2.5 months until the wedding planning, and bridal party *fun* is over. Good luck on the final few months!

At each of my weddings, we’ve had only two attendants.  The first one, it was a maid of honor (my sister) and a best man (the groom’s college roommate).  At the second one, it was a maid of honor and a dude of honor (my two children).  By keeping the numbers down, and only asking those with whom we had a lifelong connection, we avoided a lot of drama!

This is so true my Fiance daughters neither came to my shower yesterday and my Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t even get me a card.

This is why we are only having a Best Man and an Maid/Matron of Honor, no groomsmen or BM’s. It would be forcing the issue…I wouldn’t be able to find anyone else close enough to me in order to have a larger bridal party, and I wouldn’t risk it just to make a better relationship with someone. OP…this was an interesting point I dont know if a lot of us had thought of before, since I am sure there are some ladies that put people in their parties for this reason and then it creates a lot of trouble.
