I have had the unfortunate experience of a long time friend pull out from being a bridesmaid and even attending our wedding due to personal reasons. It's been a hard thing to go through but, I realize that what is important is the many family and friends who do want to be a part of our wedding. That being said is it inappropriate or too much to ask another good friend to be a bridesmaid this late in the planning? Her only cost would be to alter the bridesmaid dress I have and to get shoes if she doesn't have some already she could wear. Her boyfriend is my fiance's best friend and already a groomsmen so there wouldn't be extra costs for their stay. I just want to be respectful of her and not put her in a awkward position. I should have asked her in the first place! I appreciate any advice ladies. Thank you!
