The only person I was a little nervous to ask was my Future Sister-In-Law. I didn’t know her that well, but she was thrilled when I asked and it’s brought us much closer. I’m sure it will be fine!!

Oh yes. It got worse when my cousin didn’t respond to hers (I sent cards) and one of the girls who lives farther away already had. Turns out, her husband had gotten the mail that day and lost it in his car. He was in trouuuuuuuuble, haha.

Yes! I was super nervous. No specific reason for feeling that way, just nervous that they would think I was ridiculous and decline or something like that! However, it worked out better than expected and everyone loved the wording and everything. I am sure yours will work out super too. Good luck!! 🙂

I was very nervous. The one person I was sure would say yes… dropped out. Two girls I asked, I wasn’t super close to. When I got married last time, my ex took away all my friends and when I left him I had to rebuild. So I had only been friends with these girls for 3 years. They were there for me while I was rebuilding. They both said yes. The last girl, was the first to know about my relationship with Fiance. She also said yes. They have been amazing. At one point the one girl who knew about Fiance and I first said that she was surprised I asked her. But when I explained the situation. She understood… 

Ask her… the worst she can do is say no, and you know that is a possibilty. That is ok. But if you do not ask, you won’t know.

@Overjoyed:  I was terrified.  I knew they wouldn’t say no… but it was like this awkward asking out on a date thing.  I hated it.  Luckily all of my girls were super excited and don’t mind that I’m a dork and asked awkwardly!

True story:  I was on the phone with my Maid/Matron of Honor and said, “So random awkward wedding question…. did I ever actually ask you to be my MOH?”  To which she answered, “Uhhhh…. no.  I think I would have remembered that.”  Smooth.

@Overjoyed:  I think you are over thinking it. Just ask. Get it done with and see what happens!!!
