So I don't really have friends that I'm super close to right now. I had a falling out with my college bestie, and ended up losing touch with that whole group of friends (not because of issues with them, I just avoided bringing anyone into the middlle of our fight and distanced myself from them all, and in the process realized she was the only one of them I was really close to in the first place). I'm not the outgoing type and am slow to make friends, or at least becoming close friends. I have a new group of friends but I still don't feel super close to any one of them. A couple of these girls are both friends to me and FI and I really think we get along well, I think they are amazing girls. We've recently started hanging out more but it's still not like we are besties. However, I still kind of want to ask them to be my bridesmaids. I'm just worried that they will be like "whoa I don't know you like that" or would feel awkward by me asking. (I also am not sure if I should wait longer or ask now..the wedding is in Oct) I definitely would feel honored to have them and I know they are excited for FI and I. I just don't know if it's too intimate of a thing to ask of "new" friends. Fi keeps telling me to ask them and insisting that they really like me a lot and I should be more outgoing in trying to do things with them so that I can build a deeper friendship. I just feel like why should I push it when they all seem to already have a ton of their own friends that they are close to...why would they need me. agh I'm such a socially awkward nutcase. Is this totally weird of me? I don't want to have them just to have them be workhorses, or props, or anything btw, I just would like some lady friends to have up there with me and share the day with. These two girls have been particularly nice to me and supportive of my relationship with FI (which my ex-best friend was not, and not in the "I'm looking out for you, friend" kind of way). I figure since our wedding is going to be super casual and I wouldn't be asking anything of them other than getting whatever dress they want, it wouldn't be too presumptuous to think they wouldn't mind doing it... but I really don't know. Would you feel awkward if a girl you weren't that close to and hadn't known for more than a year asked you to be in the WP?
