I am in need of some bridesmaid advice!
After having drifted apart and not really spoken over the last couple of years, I decided not to ask one of my oldest friends to be bridesmaid.
When I recently met her (the first time in a year) she confronted me and asked why she wasn't and seemed really upset about it. I told her it was because we don't really see each other anymore to which she replied, 'but you're one of my oldest friends' and seemed genuinely in a state of shock.
I initally felt confident in my decision to not ask her but now I feel terribly guilty and I'm wondering whether (for the sake of what remains of our friendship) to ask her to be bridesmaid after all. I mean, it's just one extra dress in the grand scheme of things.
The problem is that now if I ask her, I'm worried that it wouldn't help the situation anyway as she would feel like an afterthought.
Has anyone experienced anything similar? I would really appreciate some advice!
