Hey everyone! This may sound silly, but I am having nerves and anxiety about asking some of my girls to be bridesmaids.
A little backstory, I have no sisters, and do not have any female cousins. I already asked my best childhood friend and my two future SILs to be in the wedding, which I knew all of them would say yes! The anxiety starts where my fiance has a tight-knit group of friends of about 5-7 guys who have been best friends since they were 2-3 years old. They hang out and talk regularly. This wouldn't be such an issue if he could pick a few of them and not all (which he has), but I have 2 brothers who will be groomsmen and paired with his 2 sisters. So I need 3 friends to be bridesmaids.
I guess it's serendipitous that I have 3 great friends at work. We are all very close, hang out outside of work, and they regularly bring up wedding details and ask me questions and give their opinions -excitedly! The thing is, I've only been at this job for about 6 months, so I feel weird asking them to be in my wedding, for fear that they'll think I'm clingy (or something). My wedding is also out of state (I live/work in Georgia but the wedding with be in Pennsylvania), however with the wedding date being on a weekend that we get a holiday day PTO, and not wanting a bachelorette party (I'd love a simple mani/pedi/massage outing the weekend of the wedding), the only time they'd have to go to PA and take off work would be 1 day for the actual wedding. The wedding is also not until Sept 2021. My fiance tells me I am way over thinking this, but I am so nervous as to what they may think. I truly feel if they say no, it would be more related to the out of state aspect rather than the friendship part, but the fear of rejection has me afraid to even ask, even though I am beyond excited about the idea of them standing by my side and we already talk about wedding details.
Am I the only person who has felt this way? I've also already made proposal boxes but don't know how or when to give them to them. Any suggestions or ideas would be great! Thanks
