Attendant Despair

Let me begin by clarifying: This post is in no way reflective of the members of my bridal party. I love these girls, and am so happy to have them actively involved in my wedding.

So why the melodramatic post title? Allow me to explain.

Recently, I've reconnected with several friends from high school. We lost touch during college, but for the past few months, have easily fallen back into a comfortable pattern. It's like our friendship never lapsed, and we have a great time getting together -- pretty frequently -- for girls' night. Every few Thursdays, it's dinner out or a night of bowling (or, in my case, knocking down some pins, and rolling way too many gutter balls).

And I'm feeling like a pinhead.

A "B-list" for your wedding guests is controvesial, so I can't imagine it'd be appropriate to have late additions to the bridal party. I'd also prefer to keep this group on the smaller side; I know from previous experience how challenging it gets to coordinate with larger numbers, and don't wish that on any of my friends!

So, what do I do? How can I acknowledge my friends -- letting them know how much they mean to me, and that I really do want them actively involved (somehow!) in the wedding. We're planning on involving our family in the ceremony, so that's not an option. I'm a Philly girl, but am intrigued by the Miss Lemonade's description of the house party.

I'd love some suggestions! If you were me, what would you do?
