- Wedding: September 2013
Hi all, I’m new to Weddingbee as I just got engaged this past week. I’m excited for my wedding day and all the planning that’s to come, but I’m a little worried about bridesmaids. I have a lot of friends, male and female, but not a lot of *close* friends. This is mostly due to my high school and college friends who have moved around the country, and we’ve lost touch. I have asked my sister to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, and I plan to ask a childhood friend to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man (I was her MOH), but other than that, I’m a little stuck. My fiance will likely have 5 or 6 groomsmen (all VERY close friends of his from chlldhood), and while I know I don’t need an even number of Bridesmaid or Best Man to Groomsmen, I feel…sad, I guess, that I have so few close friends to ask.
I am very tempted to ask two friends of mine that I’ve known since college whom I occasionally do things with (college was like 8 years ago). I went to both their weddings and was not a bridesmaid in either–is it weird for me to ask them to be BMs in my ceremony? I’m a little worried they’ll think it’s weird for me to ask them–what do you ladies think?
Thanks for your thoughts.
