- Wedding: September 2011
I have a bit of an issue and would love some input on the situation. I have a childhood friend who has been my best friend since 4th grade. About 5 years ago we had a falling out over something stupid (we were in high school) and needless to say we hardly commnicated with each toher for the last 5 years, just casual conversations. This past week we met for lunch (missing our friendship) and talked for 7 hours straight catching up with each other. It felt like old times again and we both talked about how dumb we were to let something come between us. We always said we would be in each other’s weddings when we were younger, and since we werent speaking at the time we chose our bridal party, she wasnt included. Now that things are better than ever I really want her to be in it. Our wedding is 5 months away and there is still time to get her a dress.
THE PROBLEM: My current Maid/Matron of Honor (who is also my future sister-in-law) hates her!! Of course my current Maid/Matron of Honor is only 18 and has some immaturity issues of her own, she has no apparent reason not to like my friend. The worst part is that if I have my friend in the wedding I was going to make her a 2nd Maid/Matron of Honor. I feel like if we were on good terms at the time I would have chosen her in the first place. I just dont want my Future Sister-In-Law to hate me for making her share the title, especially with someone she doesnt like. And of course my Fiance has no insight! Any suggestions?! I dont want to do anything to hurt anyone or make a deicsion I may regret….
