- Wedding: September 2013
Ok…I had some issues with BMs…
Short summary…there was some drama between one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man (Flamingo) and my sister & mom, so I selfishly asked her to step down (I see my mom and sister 3 times a month…I see my friend 3 times a year). I asked one of my childhood friend (Horse) to be Bridesmaid or Best Man, she was thrilled that I asked her…then later her cousin is getting married and my friend worries that she won’t have enough time and money to attend 2 weddings so she stepped down.
Last week when I met up with Horse, she was telling me her cousin been on-and-off with her wedding…and recently it’s been “on again”…then I was telling her my sister been very tempermental and I’m afriad she’ll drop the bomb on me and step down as Bridesmaid or Best Man the last minute. Horse said she don’t mind being a “backup” Bridesmaid or Best Man if I just need someone to “fill the spot” if my sister drop out like the day before my wedding.
So, my current list Bridesmaid or Best Man:
1) My sister
2) My best friend who lives in a different state
3) College good friend
My sister JUST announced she’s pregnant, at first she said she’ll be fine being a Bridesmaid or Best Man but my brother-in-law firmly said No. OOOOK…now…I’m wondering if I should ask Horse to be my Bridesmaid or Best Man again or should I try to find another friend. (Flamingo is not an option…the tension between her, my mom and my sister is still there…)
I know a lot of ladies here don’t mind an uneven number of Groomsmen vs Bridesmaid or Best Man…but, I do, so do my fiance. I’ve seen pic with uneven Bridesmaid or Best Man vs Groomsmen…and to me, it’s odd and weird. Again…totally personal preference.
