Just answer what she’s asked you about, but don’t go out of your way to explain. Don’t feel bad–you chose your Bridal Party for a reason.

I dont think that you need to explain why she is not a bridesmaid but rather let her know that you have already chosen your bridal party. Perhaps you can make her help out in other ways. I am pretty sure she would understand.

Since she hasnt really asked about her being a part of the wedding in any way, you dont need to address it. Its probably because she already understands. But I think you are making a mistake in being weird and not just responding to her qs involving the wedding. That in itself may make her feel like your avoiding talking about your wedding with her which would probably be the thing that deserves an explaination. If that makes sense? lol

I disagree with the above posters. I think there is no harm in telling her the truth. If you address the issue, you could prevent hurt feelings. I’m sure you can say it really nicely and make her understand how you treasure her friendship but since you had to limit your bridal party, you chose A, B, and C because __________.
