i say go ahead and ask, but phrase it so that she has an out of she needs it…ie “i know you are going to be in another wedding in a short period of time, so i understand if it is too much of a financial strain, but i’d love you to be in the wedding party if possible”

I think you should still ask her.  Let her make the decision about whether it would be too much.

I would probably wait until closer to your date. Most of my relationships have really changed in a year, and you don’t want to risk having Bridesmaid or Best Man drama :(. When you’re ready, I think you’re fine to ask the Bridesmaid or Best Man who’s already in a wedding. Tell her you’ll understand if she can’t do it, but she might be up for it.

I would still ask her and just assure her that you understand wherever she may stand on the being a part of both weddings.

You could also go from the stance like I did with one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man that really the only expectation is to do her part (whatever that may be) on getting her attire and showing up… One of my girls in in her last semester of Nursing so being there for everything just isn’t possible… but I love her and was willing to go this ^ route =)

As for the Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man.. not sure, I didn’t to the how “invitation” sweet askings for my girls.. just kinda put it out there. lol

@ohkkrista: I think she’ll be thrilled to at least be asked. And as long as she knows that your feelings won’t be hurt if she declines, I think that you should ask her. Ms. Meowerson’s phrasing was very nice.
