I think you’re worrying about it a little too much.  Many people understand that fact that you can’t ask EVERYONE to stand up for you, and if it came down to it (where they didn’t ask you), you already said you won’t be upset. You reacting in that way would be just what they need.

Ask the girls that mean the most to you. They will be honored.  Cross the other bridge whenever it comes. 🙂

I also think you are reading into it way too much!!  If these are the girls you want to ask, their future weddings and potential bridal parties are not things you need to be concerned with.  Go ahead and ask them — I am sure they will be excited to be a part of you and your fiance’s day 🙂  If you want, you can always throw in that you are not going to be a demanding bride and all you want is for them to buy a dress and stand there with you.

I agree. You’re thinking into this way too much. While I know I’ll be in two of my Bridesmaid or Best Man weddings, I doubt I will be in my 3rd Bridesmaid or Best Man future wedding. It’s okay. I consider the 3rd Bridesmaid or Best Man one of my best friends but I know she has other sets of friends in her city that she is closer to. She lives two hours away.
Anyways, you should ask who you want in your wedding. I really doubt they will be concerned with whose wedding they were in when their big day comes around. Like others said, they’ll be honored and excited!

I’ve been a maid of honour 3 times and a brides maid once and I’m not asking any of them to be in my bridal party.  Unfortunately for me, they drifted away after marrying and having families and don’t really talk to me now.   Two of the girls that I did ask are married and I wasn’t in their party. 

I was nervous to ask a couple of the girls to be my bridesmaid because we on’ly talk every couple of months, but we are close.  Each of them were so thrilled and excited to be asked.  I had been feeling sad that I wouldn’t have those close girlfriend moments that I see on pinterest.  However, when I heard their reactions when I asked, I started to feel like our wedding party would be really fun.  Lots of giggling and excitement when I asked them.  One even cried.
