People will not be as heartbroken as you think to be not invited to be bridesmaids. Trust me. Just invite the 2 you actually see. The others will surely be perfectly happy to be guests.

I agree with PP. If these girls are your closest friends they will understand that you see these 2 more often and they have a closer relationship with both you and your FI. If they say anything just tell them that your first choice was just your sisters but since your FI has 4 groomsmen you wanted an equal amount and hence picked the 2 girls who a/ you see the most and b/ are in the best position to help with the planning. They’ll understand.

I would just ask the two and I’m sure the rest of your friends will understand.  As you mentioned they don’t live in the same city and they’re all pretty busy.  They will be excited just to be with you on the big day!
