So I feel like you have two options:

1. Sit her down and try to thoughtfully point out some of the problems with her current plan.

2. Stay mum and keep us updated on how the Bridesmaid or Best Man demotions turn out.

I selfishly advocate for #2. (But no, really, it’s not inappropriate to do #1.)

mo711:  All good, sometimes it’s easy to glaze over WHY someone is doing what they’re doing, so it’s good you understand. You’re totally right though, she at least needs to pin down a definite bridal party, then she can maybe start looking at dresses she likes – without actually committing to anything right now!

You should get a wedding planning timeline from somewhere. Sit down with her & have her look at it. Say things like “do you think xyz is getting done too early?” that’ll open the conversation & you can tell her your opinion.

If she is your close friend, be honest with her. A reasonable person will be able to tell that you aren’t trying to squash her happiness; you are trying to provide the perspective of a guest of bridal party — both of which she seems to need.
