    How can I include close friends in the wedding when I already have my Bridesmaids picked? I have 3 or 4 more friends that I am close with and want them apart of the wedding, yet not really a bridesmaid. Someone mentioned Honorary Bridesmaid or something. I can tell they are a little disappointed they aren't a Bridesmaid and I know they will be close with everything about the wedding, just want them to some how be more included.

    Help! I need suggestions?

      Readings are always good for friends who aren't in the wedding party, but you want them to be a part of the wedding.

      Ask each of them to do a reading, or to help usher guests.

        I originally started off with 7 girls in my wedding right now I have 2 definites! Not to be debbie downer but are all of your girls booked?? If one backs out then ask another to be a part of the wedding. Keep your options open.And if need be ask them to do a reading or still involve them with getting ready and what not.

          We are having my FI's sister sing during our wedding (instead of a reading) so she can be involved. We are having someone else play an instrument. Think of talents they may have that could contribute. If not, the reading is always a great way.

            Make them an "unofficial bridesmaid". Have only 1 person walk down the aisle with you, but still have them get ready with you for hair, makeup, getting dressed.

            Or throw them all in! Break traditions! You don't have to have an even number of guys and girls. If they are all special to you, ask them all!

            Sometimes brides find it difficult when there are too many opinions. Something else to consider.

            Personally, I didn't specifically ask anyone to be a MOH, BM as I knew those I wanted, couldn't afford to come. One girl is coming with me so I asked her to be MOH. Well this kinda leaves a problem for wedding showers, bachelorette, etc because no one else was really involved in planning these events, and she took it upon herself to do everything. She planned things I didn't really want, and kinda messed up with the shower. That's why I'd consider asking them to be your "Unofficial Bridesmaid", so they can help with at home stuff.

            Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

              Have them be your attendent. Someone who is there for you through the whole day to make sure everything goes smooth. I also agree on the readings and talents. For that fact you could also get them a bout to wear at the wedding to make them also stand out! Good luck!
