Our wedding is in 5 months and my fiance just said he'd like to add another groomsman to the bridal party, a good friend of his who he'd thought about asking before, but due to his friend's busy schedule thought he wouldn't bother him with the typical groomsman duties. After meeting up with me last week he decided that he really did want to ask his friend and asked me if that was ok. I'm totally fine with it. The issue is that we want an equal number of maids and men, and I'm a pretty busy, quiet person with tons of great acquaintances, but not a lot of close close friends. I was thinking of asking my friend Becca to be a bridesmaid to even out the party (and I absolutely LOVE her. She's AWESOME!). The thing is, I only see and talk to her about once a week during our Bible study and seldom go out together outside of that time (We both of completely opposite schedules). Would it be weird to ask her to be a bridesmaid? I think she's great, but worry that it'll come out of no where to her, and seem really bizarre, especially since I've already chosen bridesmaids. If it doesn't seem weird, how should I ask her without making it seem like she's just a place-filler? The initial reason she's being asked is because she is filling a place, but she would definitely be wanted as more than an extra body. Sorry this is so long. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
