Asking the Bridal Party!

Hello Ladies! 
One aspect I am struggling with is asking not my brides maides, but my "personal attendent." We have a small close knit group of college girls, so 6 are in my bridal party. However, one of my good friends won't be a BM, but is part of that close group! I dont want an odd number of BM, and 8 is too many. So, I was thinking of asking her to be my personal assistant on the wedding day. HOwever, I don't want to be rude, so I'm not sure how to word it. Did any of you have this problem? And if so, what did you do about it?

Re: Asking the Bridal Party!

  • Please don't do this. Asking someone to be your "assistant" isn't an honor. That is a position that is is typically paid.
    Also, you're aware you posted this in the WI board, correct?
    Praying for a miracle!
  • I'd suggest going with an odd number, or maybe asking her to be a hostess instead. Your maid/matron of honor is already there to assist you.
  • Thanks for the help ladies! And yes, I realize I posted this in the WI board, that is where I am from, and where I will be getting married.
