So one of the worst possible things that could happen to me for my wedding happened. One of my very best friends, and my bridesman is moving back to his home country, and cannot come back for the wedding. I am already devastated by this, but I do have another close friend in mind to ask to be my bridesmaid. I am a bit of a perfectionist, and we only have 4 people on each side so without my bridesman, I would only have 3 so the numbers would be off. The girl I want to ask to be my bridesmaid is familiar with the situation, and she is a few years older than me so I feel like she is mature enough to understand the situation, and I really don’t think she would be offended or put off by being asked second because it truly did come down to numbers being why I didn’t ask her in the first place. For this situation, where my bridesman literally cannot come to the wedding, do you think it is acceptable to ask my other friend to be my bridesmaid now that I have a spot for her?
