Too many friends, no more BM slots!

Recommended Posts

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.

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!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
