I am in the process of choosing my bridal party and I am looking for advice. I would like to have a maximum of 5 people, since our wedding is small. So far, I know I have to have my sister, my brother and my best friend. I have 2 other close friends that I would love to include as well.
My worry is my best friend from college. Throughout college, we were SUPER close. After college, we fell apart and only really saw each other a few times a year. I hadn't really thought about including her in the party. However, we have been seeing each other a little bit more recently and I know she still considers me to be her best friend. I know it's ultimately who I want to have in the party but I don't want to ruin relationships either.
The other thing is compatibility amongst the party. So far, my fiance and I have selected mutual friends (we're both close with each other's friends and have been since childhood) and our siblings. Right now, I think we'd have a really great time with our parties and it's great how everyone knows each other. I am worried that asking my college friend would throw it off since she doesn't know our friends that well.
What do you think? I feel like a jerk even thinking these things! Did anybody else find it stressful having to analyze and evaluate friendships?! Ah!
