I'm getting married next august and I was wondering if anyone can give me an advice about my bridal party. I have a friend that I have been friends with for a long time and I asked her already to be one of bridesmaids. When I told her she had to pay for her entire ensemble, hair and make up she was a little hesitant to be part of the bridal party. At first she was happy but when she heard she had to basically pay her way her tone just completely changed. I know she has never really had a steady job and she does not make a lot of money. I understand this but I was a little disappointed that she would even think twice about not being in my bridal party because I know I wouldn't. I don't want to have to beg her to be in it and I did tell her that it would mean a lot to me if she was in it. I was thinking of offering to pay for her shoes but I am really tight with my budget. So far she is the only one who has not agreed on paying her way so I feel kinda stuck. I don't want to disinvite her but the last time I spoke to her I left it up to her if she wants to be in it or not. I don't want her to feel forced but it makes sense to me that I would choose her to be a bridesmaid. Advice?
