I just chose my bridesmaids and am very excited to have 6 of my closest friends standing up there with me. However, I have one friend that is very insulted that I did not choose her. She said she isn't mad, just dissappointed and hurt.
I have my reasons why I didn't choose her...none of which I would feel comfortable disclosing to her because I don't think that's appropriate and would just make her feel worse. We do talk frequently and she is a good friend, so I can see why she may be confused as to why I didn't ask her. I'm not trying to hurt her feelings or our friendship, but I chose who I chose and that's that. How can I handle this as nicely and delicately as possible? I really do feel bad that she's hurt.
Thank you for any advice!
