A dear friend of mine whom I love a lot asked me at brunch the other (in front of her boyfriend and my fiance) why exactly she wasn't in my bridal party. Recognizing this was a rude thing to ask, I feel bad because I actually WANTED to ask her to be in the bridal party but had to ask my FI's only sister instead. The WP is already way too big (us being Italian and all) and I simply couldn't have anymore people.
So I said uuuuhhhhhmmmmm...and then thankfully the waitress came by with our food and it was dropped. I feel like I need to acknowledge it and I don't want her feelings to be hurt. Is it ok for me to be honest and tell her that I had to include my FSIL? Or should I come up with something more...neutral?
