So I’m in the middle of trying to figure out my bridal party and I was thinking that I would like to ask my new friend to be a bridesmaid. Problem is that we’ve only known each other for 2.5 months but we’ve hung out every week. We definitely click and get along really well. So my question is- do you think she would be weirded out if I asked her? I was thinking of waiting maybe another 3 months just in case. I’m just concerned she will feel uncomfortable if I ask her and our friendship will go downhill. I could really use your advice!

if the wedding date on your profile is correct i would wait several months before asking anyone to be a bridesmaid. friendships (new and old) can change so much in such a short time.

@Andi1787: I would wait until at least until a year out. Friendships change, people move away. I asked a friend of a year to be one of my bridesmaids.

@Andi1787: I would definitely hold off for a bit if I were you. You’ve got oodles of time.

I would wait until a year out before asking ANY of your BMs. You never know what might change in a year and a half.

I wouldn’t ask anyone until you’re a year out or less! (Except maybe family)

I definitely wouldn’t ask until you know her for at least a year… I had someone who professed how much they wanted to be my bridesmaid, so I awkwardly agreed after awhile, only to find out she secretly wanted my marriage to fail so her relationship would be “longer” and “Better” than mine. You just don’t really know someone until you’ve known them for awhile.
