Subject: I have 5 girls one being my si
Question: I have 5 girls one being my sister that are prospective bridemaides. Problem here is I really only want 3 or 4. I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings but here is the dilema.... I want my sister in the wedding party, so that leaves 4 left. I have a best-friend from 7th grade who I want to be one, she is going to be the maid of honor. Then, I have another friend who I work with but we are really good friends and I really want her in my wedding(she said I could leave her out, if I wanted to but I do not want to). Then I have two other friends of which I have been in each of their weddings and have known them both for a long time. One girl we have lost touch and our friendship doesn't seem as close as it used to be but I do still consider her a friend. I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings but know that I cannot have everyone in the wedding. My two friends whose wedding I have been in before, I do not want them to harbor feelings against me if I do not have them be bridesmaids. I figure if I just leave them both out, then they will not think I "picked" one over the other. Plus, one of the girls has a sister that I am close to as well so I would feel bad not asking her to be a bridesmaid either, although I think she would be ok with it. And, that same girl (prospective bridesmaid) had me and my boyfriend in her and her husband's wedding party so if I didn't ask her, we don't think it would be appropriate to have him in the wedding... maybe have him as an usher and her do something else. My and my finace really only want to have 3 bridesmaides and 3 groomsmen (including best man & maid of honor). I could just have 4 and exclude my friend my work but honestly, to me, she's my other best friend along with the girl I have known for 11 years. Please someone tell me what you think I should do since I f do not have a clue and just want to do the right thing. Thanks!
