- Wedding: March 2016
I want to ask a close friend to be a bridesmaid, but I asked my other 4 bridesmaids back in October. I originally wanted this friend to be Bridesmaid or Best Man, but did not ask her due to a misunderstanding… essentially, I thought she didn’t want to be involved with the wedding since she is very bitter about being single and hates discussing weddings. However, she is one of my best friends and I love her dearly. Now, I think this move was insensitive of me, and I should have asked her anyway.
I think it’s sad to let a misunderstanding come between us, and I like to have a chat with her over coffee and ask her to be a bridesmaid, and tell her the whole story (that the only reason I didn’t ask her was because I thought she didn’t want to be involved in my wedding).
FWIW, I have no duties/expectations for my bridesmaids! My Maid/Matron of Honor and I are handling all wedding tasks. Also, this friend has already been invited to the bachelorette party.
Am I overcomplicating this, and I should just ask her? It feels awkward to ask 6 weeks after I asked my other girls.
