- Wedding: May 2012
Have a few questions in regards to asking my friends to be bridesmaids:
When is a good time to do this? My wedding is 16 months away, I’m pretty settled on my bridal party, but not sure if that’s too soon. I don’t really anticipate any big friendship fallouts but I didn’t know if maybe it’s better to wait?
How did you guys ask?
I am making them cards asking them to be my BMs and then in the cards inviting them to some kind of lunch or something to celebrate/thank them in advance. I was debating between taking them to lunch (which I could do ASAP) or waiting till the weather is better and having them over for a little backyard lunch/mimosas (which hopefully will not be too similar to my backyard e-party, which would be about a month later). Anyone do something similar, or maybe have some more creative suggestions?
I know there’s plenty of past posts on this, just wanted to see if any new ideas were out there! thanks!
