Bridesmaid selection - wedding etiquette

Claudia, on January 3, 2022 at 02:10 Posted in Before the wedding 0 3
Hi everyone!
I have a question about if this is a faux pas or not. I have a friend group that includes me an 2 other girls. We are all friends from highschool however one of them has been in my life continuously for almost 20 years straight. I had a bit of a falling out with the other but we reconnected again a few years ago. Because of number on by fiance's side, I was hoping to only ask the closest friend to be my bridesmaid. Is this a huge faux pas??
Thanks, any advice would be super helpful!

    I think etiquette has gone out the window with our generation. There is no right or wrong way to have a wedding, imo.

    Personally, I am only having 1 bridesmaid vs 3 groomsmen because I don't have any other friends worth having with me and not picking people just to be even.

    There is no etiquette these days on how many for your bridal party. There's a lot of weddings these days that have uneven bridesmaids and groomsmen. Have whoever you want to stand up for you on your big day and don't worry about the numbers! It's your day just remember that! My fiance and I are only having once of each standing up for each of us.

    There is no etiquette when it comes to asking people to be in your wedding party. There are no rules, for instance, that say if you have a sister she has to be in your wedding party. You house who you want to be with you. How would you feel if she didn't ask you to be in her wedding oarty? Every relationship is different and you can't have every friend you have in your wedding party. If you are happy with who you chose that's what matters. That being said if you and both of these friends go out together I wouldn't make every conversation about your upcoming wedding. Good luck.
