Why not do a “real” bridesmaids only pic and then do one with your friend as well?  I’d say to include her, and I think that’s a great way because you get the best of both!  🙂

I don’t see why you would exclude her. My best guy friend is reading our ceremony and will be included in groomsmen photos. Most officiants wear a robe over their clothes. Let her do that while wearing the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress under it and then just take it off and on for photos.

i would make her officiant/honorary bm. have her coordinate but not match the other bms. i would definitely still include her in the bm pictures…you’re not demoting her.

I am thinking about doing this, too!! Neither of us belong to a church and my best friend, who would normally be one of 2 MOHS, is an excellent speaker. Like, when we were in high school she was State Speech Champion. That kind of excellent. This really helped me out too, guys! Thanks!
