Hey ladies…so I have a problem!
I will start out by saying that I don’t have many girl friends–i had more in high school but since then we have all gone our seperate ways and dont really talk much anymore. My fiance and I have run in the same circle since high school and there is only one other girl in our “group”, who is my Maid/Matron of Honor. Her and I have been friends since HS but over the last 2-3 years have gotten even closer. As far as bridesmaids, the one other close girlfriend I have is goin to be moving to Canada in January and cannot take on the responsability which she doesnt even seem sorry for–but thats a whoooole nother story. Anyways, over the last 8 months I have been talking to/hanging out with a girl I know through my ex room mate. We have a lot in common and really enjoy hanging out with each other and with our hubby/fiances. Although I have not known her very long, she is very interested in my wedding and even came dress shopping with me and my Maid/Matron of Honor, and has offered to help with whatever I need help with. She is so incredibly kind and I am very appreciative of her willingness to help. Although I have not known her for very long, since I think she would be of great help and I can trust her, do you all think it’s ok to ask her to be a BM? I was going to write her a thank you card and mail it to her house asking her to be Bridesmaid or Best Man…What do you think???

People come into your life for a time and a season. Now is her time. You can know someone there whole life and they might not be as good as a friend as she has over the past 8 months. I say go for it!

I belive that you should. I don’t believe there should be a time limit to the friendship that you have had to make her a Bridesmaid or Best Man. One of my Bridesmaid or Best Man I just meet like six months ago because one of my friends that I meet in college starting dating her. She is the most excited out of the three and that includes my sister. She also is the most helpful. As long as you can trust her, I would ask her over the hs friend that I haven’t talked to her for years.
LOL–I also have a friend that moved to Canada but she is coming down for the wedding as a bm. 😀

I agree. If you would like her to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man, don’t be afraid to ask her. It sounds like she’d like that too.

I agree… I say go for it. It sounds like she’s really been there for you when you’ve needed her and that she’s been a good friend. I don’t think the short amount of time knowing her should keep you from asking her.
