This happened to my best friend! Her Fiance was friends with the FH part of a couple and she had met his FW like, 2 times before and she asked her to be her Bridesmaid or Best Man. She said that cos she’d just moved to town she didn’t know anyone and didn’t have any sisters so my bestie said she’d be her Bridesmaid or Best Man. They did all the usual weddding/bridesmaid things but it was really akward for my friend cos she barely knew this girl!

A little different but my SO was asked to be in a wedding of a friend of mine because her FH didn’t have any male friends.  The wedding isn’t for a few months so there hasn’t been anything to do yet.  But, I do think it’s going to be awkward.  He only accepted because of my friendship with the girl.

YES! ahh.  I was literally shocked when I was asked! But she also asked a few other people who aren’t her friends either because she wanted a certain number of BMs. The only reason I agreed was because my fiance is friends with the groom and I wanted to avoid a really awkward situation. But the whole thing has been really awkward because none of the BMs know each other and none are really close to the bride so at girls nights its silent! I personally don’t get asking people if you aren’t really close or related….it just seems odd to me.

That’s so difficult.  I kind of feel bad for the bride often times, because I think she might not have any friends….  Other times I think brides are looking for “extra” bodies to even out the Bridal Party. 

By the same token if you’re gracious enough to help this bride out, I hope she won’t expect abig bachelorette party.  And if she wants a shower, I think she should encourage her mother or other family to basically pay for it.  (And make things as easy on you as possible.)

I have been asked to be Maid/Matron of Honor in  a wedding that im not very good friends with the bride (I dont even know her b-day!!! 🙁

I kind of had the feeling she was going to ask me…and i was thinking MAYBE Bridesmaid or Best Man and she asked Maid/Matron of Honor, she has three sisters too!! I think it just came down to she didnt want to pick out of the sisters so she asked me??!! Who knows…

Its pretty akward…but we ARE friends…just not the BEST of friends (she lives in another city!)
