Member request! I have chosen to have my 3 closest/best friends as bridesmaids at my wedding. I’m feeling a bit rubbish that I haven’t asked another close friend to be bridesmaid too but in the last year we haven’t been as close but h2b, family etc think she will take this news bad... really don’t know what to do! I was thinking of asking her to do a special reading in the ceremony or do you think she may be offended by the ‘not so important part’ in the day? Thanks

I had the same problem with two close friends one of which introduced us... felt terrible telling them but have asked them to be as included as possible... They're both coming to get ready with us in the morning and both are having alot to do with henny planning etc... They're both effectively bridesmaids with out the dress and are both happy with the situation... hope that helps a bit

I think it is very special to be asked to do a reading, certainly my friends have felt honoured to be asked. Also, not everyone wants to be a bridesmaid.

Your bridesmaids should be those who are close to you and you can trust to help you and support you throughout the planning and on the day, if you don't feel this friend fits the bill don't ask her. It is lovely if you want her to do a reading

Don't feel bad for making a choice that felt right to you. I had the same problem and when I told her she cried be honest that didnt change my mind x
