- Wedding: May 2014
Hey everyone! My fiance just proposed to me a couple of weeks ago…we are very excited! We set the date for April 5th, 2014. I am about to start the fun planning that goes along with weddings! One of the first things I wanted to do was select my bridal party. My fiance wants 5 groomsmen, and I had 4 bridesmaids in mind immediately. I really would like our numbers to match, plus, there was a fifth girl I had in mind to ask….but there are some pros and cons. I want honest opinions!!! Thanks!
So, I work with three other girls. Two of these girls I knew that I wanted as bridesmaids immediately, because I feel like they will be people I’m still friends with when I’m older. The third girl (my possible bridesmaid), is also my friend, but I’ll just be honest…I don’t know her THAT well. I really like her and we get along great! But I don’t talk to her much outside of work. I did kind of mention possibly including her in my wedding party, if she wanted to be in it…and she seemed surprised since we don’t know each other that well, but also very excited and willing.
Here’s my pros and cons:
-We get along well.
-I see her frequently at work.
-I am asking the other two girls at work, so I feel it may hurt her feelings to not ask her.
-We are the type that could become closer as time goes on.
-We are friends!
-She is happy to be in my wedding party.
-She would be a good, reliable bridesmaid.
-Our numbers would match in the wedding.
-I’ve already mentioned having her as a bridesmaid.
-We don’t see each other outside of work.
-I could see us losing touch later in life.
-We aren’t super close friends…just friends.
Thanks everyone! I would like to have her…and she seems to be happy to do it….I just want to make sure it doesn’t go against some bridal code to have a good, but not super close, friend as a bridesmaid. Thanks!!!!
