Q: I was in my best friend’s wedding 5 years ago. 5 years later we aren’t as close. Nothing really happened..just life and we seemed to have grown apart. I am newly engaged and wanted to know since I was in her wedding does she have to be in mines despite us not really talking anymore?
A: You know this is your wedding and you can do what you want to do, right? You shouldn’t feel obligated to reciprocate. You said you aren’t that close anymore. That seems to answer the question right there. If you feel uncomfortable about the situation, you can ask them to fulfill some other role in the wedding (maybe a hostess, if you have a reading of some sort during the ceremony like a special scripture). The whole point of the bridal party is to witness and vouch for the two of you as a couple. These are the individuals that will pray for you guys and hopefully these are the ones you can call on in your time of need. If she isn’t that anymore..why would she stand next to you? Just my five cents.
