Wow, this is a really tough one!

I’d still invite the older friends to the wedding, but I think I’d ask the newer ones to stand up with me. They’re the ones you’re closer to right now, and if they’re excited about your big day it’ll just make everything more fun for you.

i agree i would ask the newer friends who you see more often and are more excited for you.

Wow, no offense…but the way you talk about your older friends, if I were them, I wouldn’t want to be in your wedding. Just saying.  

I would go with someone who you are with all the time. You don’t need as many as your FI has.

@JLR1982:  I would go with the new friends! If the old friends aren’t enthusiastic, busy etc. you’re probably doing them a favor by not asking them to stand up with you. Just invite them.

I would go with the newer group of friends for the bridal party, and invite the older group of friends to attend.  If any of them questions why they were left out this time, just explain that you would have felt bad expecting them to give up more of their time and money as they have already BTDT once for you, and that you wanted them to be able to relax and enjoy the day this time around.
