A close friend from college asked me to be in her wedding a few months after I got engaged. I politely declined and told her I knew I would be crazy busy planning my own wedding and I didn’t want to accept the role then not have the time to give the role the time it required.

Another friend in our immediate circle also turned down the same girl’s offer to be a bridesmaid and simply told the bride she knew she was going to be really busy helping me and didn’t want to over extend herself.

The bride completely understood and there were no hard feelings. I still attended her wedding and celebrated her day I just didn’t take on all the extra stress that comes along with being a bridesmaid.
