I would leave things as is and just invite her to be a bridesmaid, if a larger party is what you are looking for.  If you are content with having just a Maid/Matron of Honor and  Bridesmaid or Best Man, I’d just invite her to the wedding.  Don’t feel bad, I don’t have that many close friends either.  I’ll have just a Maid/Matron of Honor and maybe 2 BMs.

I would leave things the way they are and maybe ask the reconnected friend to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man if hte relationship continues to go well, but I see the wedding is in July so there’s not a lot of time. Also, to get closer w/your current Maid/Matron of Honor why don’t you ask her out on a friend’s date? That might help you feel better about choosing her if you guys spend time outside of work.

I think you should just keep it as is, but it’s up to you. I always fear that anyone you add to a bridal party if other people have already been asked will feel left out or second best (I felt that way about a wedding I was added to after the rest of the bridal party was picked). I have been feeling down about not having any friends either while doing this wedding planning, like the bridal shower was small and my bachlorette party is only 5 people including myself. My bridal party is only my sisters, because I think just some girls (you and me) don’t have many other girl friends. It can make you kind of down during times like this, but it can be so hard to find good friends! Don’t stress, just have your bridal party be the girls you want to be with you throughout your day don’t just add people because you feel down on yourself bc of the size.
