- Wedding: September 2010
When I first started to decide on my bridesmaids, I ran into the problem of trying to decide which group of friends to include in addition to my sisters. Old childhood friends or newer friends…I couldn’t include all of them. When I found out my FH had 6 groomsman I wanted to match that number. I quickly found out that including my childhood friends would turn out to be the perfect number and I was excited about having the girls who have been in my life for so long be with me on the wedding day. I found out over the weekend that one of my bridesmaids expressed that she didn’t know why I had asked her to be my bridesmaid since we don’t talk that much…she is married with kids which is totally different from my life so we run in different circles but still see each other. She also expressed a lack of support for the wedding since we are planning without an official engagement…however she supports us being married in the future. Hearing this was a shock because she always expressed excitement over the wedding and being included. My hurt feelings wanted to call her and tell her she doesn’t have to be in the wedding and that I would rather have people who supported us be in the wedding but I haven’t decided what to do. Has anyone else experienced this? What did you do? Any advice would be appreciated!
