help, i need some advice! i just got engaged and am thinking about who i’d like to ask to be in my party. i’ve been a bridesmaid 5 times, 2 of those times i’ve been the Maid/Matron of Honor. although i’m still good friends with all 5 of the former brides, only 2 of them i’d want to ask without hesitation. the other 2 i’d like to ask are my best guy friend and my brother (stand on my side rather than my FI). do i have to ask everyone who asked me?? thanks for any advice!

Dont feel obligated to ask someone to be a part of ur bridal party just because ur were a braid’s maid for them. It sould be people that are close to you, support the narriage and willing to help out with the ploanningg etc.

Don’t ask anyone out of obligation!
Ask who you really want to stand up there with you on your day!

No, you don’t have to ask everyone who has asked you in the past. Friendships change with time and everyone has different reasons for asking their BMs. Just be aware that it can cause hurt feelings or a change in the friendship dynamic – I didn’t reciprocate to one of my friends and although it’s hard to tell because we live in different cities, I feel like it did change our friendship somehow (just not sure how). But I don’t regret the decision I made, I chose the right people.
