Hi! Sorry if this is long and run on sentances.
I assumed my fi wanted his sisters to be bridesmaids, but I asked him last night if he wanted to ask them or if he wanted me to ask them (I've only met one once and not met the other at all since they're both from out of state). He said he thought I should have girls I knew be the bridesmaids since he was picking his friends for the groomsmen and only one would be his brother. (he has two brothers, but he only gets along w. one) I think it's a nice gesture to ask his sisters, but I would really like to have more people in the wedding party I know. Besides my out of state cousin, right now I'll k now my friend and my brother on the grooms side.
Also, my mom wants us to have about 4 people on each side (people keep saying it doesn't matter how many bridesmaids and groomsmen we have, but mom is paying and I don't want to fight with her about it) and he already has 4 before counting my brother. I can't put my brother on the bridesmaid side b/c of situations that would make it embarrising for him or I would.
My one friend is so busy I haven't even been able to ask her to be a bridesmaid since she is so busy. (i'm thinking about asking someone else anyways to be bridesmaid so that she isn't overwhelmed w/ having to be a bridesmaid on top of her already busy life. I don't want her to feel obligated to do it if she is busy already)
