October Bee here.. Mine still hasn’t decided, even though I picked my girls long ago, although I have not officially asked as I’m waiting on 1 item to add to their bridesmaid boxes.

@sillysillybee:  We’re still a ways out, but FI hasn’t decided yet. He’s just like, let me know how many people I need and I’ll pick them out. All that’s for certain is my brother because I told FI that I wanted my brother to be a GM. My god-brother also wanted to be a GM…I had to explain to him that FI gets to pick that. 

On the other hand, FI was a GM in a friend of ours wedding. Apparently the groom told the best man about 2 months in advance and told him to tell everyone else. Best man forgot and no one knew until a month beforehand. FI was already signed up to be in a marathon across the state that day. He ran the marathon, hopped in my car, got there half an hour before the ceremony started, showered and changed.

We have 5 months to go and he has only asked 2 of 6! He has decided on the other 4, but is procrastinating because he doesn’t want to ask over texting or a phone call.  I want to reserve tuxes by March so I’m not stressing out last minute.  His brother waited until 2 weeks before his wedding to reserve tuxes and I can’t handle that!

I think mine asked his groomsmen about a year out, but that’s probably because I bugged him so much about it … Otherwise he probably would’ve left it until the last possible second!
