After a whole fiasco of my cousins whom I chose as MOHs dropping out of the wedding (this is another whole really long story), I had to make some changes to my bridal party in Feb/Mar. I added my brother's girlfriend (he and her are getting engaged soon - but she's like a sister to me) as a bridesmaid. Since then, I have had just 4 BMs, no MOHs. I found out that our best man is going to make it home from Iraq in time for the wedding, giving my FI 5 GMs and me with 4 BMs. I decided that since he is going to be home that I really should pick a MOH. I asked my oldest sister to be MOH and she excitedly accepted.My FI asked me what I thought about adding another BM since his best man is going to be home. He suggested one of his GM's wife (whom I'm extremely close to and have been for the past two years). I like that idea, if I were to add anyone.I spoke with my mom about it today and she was really pushing for me to have my childhood friend in, instead. I understand. I've known this girl all of my life, but she's really a wild card sometimes in terms of her actions. I explained this to my mom and she told me to at least think about it. I'm not one to do everything my mom says (if you know anything about my back story, you know the drama with my mom), but she makes a point that this childhood friend would be really hurt if I chose a friend that I've only known a couple of years over her.Thoughts? Add no one, add GM's wife, or add childhood friend?I know this sounds so stupid and petty, but I feel like I'm being pulled in a bunch of directions.
