Q. I had a bridesmaid drop out of my wedding. There is still 7 months before my wedding. Is it OK to ask another close friend who was second on my list after the person who dropped out?
A. It is generally incorrect to ask someone else to fill in at the last minute, although there are exceptions, such as asking a close friend who would be honored to fill in. At seven months before the wedding, it would not be considered last minute, so it is perfectly fine to ask someone else. Best wishes!
