I decided to get rid of one of my bridesmaids yesterday. I'll see if I can keep the explanation rather short. We were, I thought, close friends. And then she made a statement that was... I'll say very offensive to me, but might not be to other people. She stated that you can't really be friends with people/know people/have any sort of personal relationship with anyone you meet online. At all. Ever.
That's awkward, but it's more so when you consider the fact that that's how I met my FI. And my MOH. And my other BM. And a quarter of our guest list. And, for bonus points: also how I met this particular, now-former BM! We've known each other for a few years, but apparently it isn't "real" because we originally met online. (We know each other offline, obviously, as well now.) I'm a semi-popular online author, FI mostly does work online. Our lives are very much internet-involved, and I really felt like she was just negating a lot of things that were important to FI and I both personally and as a couple.
So, I felt that having her stand up next to me would have just been... not appropriate. My question: should I still invite her? While I find what she said offensive, we're still friends. I just don't want her as a bridesmaid.
