First, congrats on your engagement!!  Second, many people suggest waiting until less than a year away from your wedding to select a wedding party.  This way you have some time to enjoy being engaged, and you’ll soon learn which friends are naturally supportive of you.  People change, relationships change, and unfortunately weddings bring out the crazy in everyone.  Don’t stress about this decision too soon!  Everything will probably fall into place and your decision will be MUCH easier 🙂

If you feel awkward asking her, you don’t need a maid of honor. You can have all your friends be bridesmaids.

@Klein2bReidy:  Is it ok to ask someone who isn’t your best friend? Has anyone ever had anyone say no because they weren’t close enough friends?

Yes. It is totally ok. Do what is in your heart. Go with the person you think will be the most sincerely happy for you and supportive of you. If she says no, she says no, but at least you will have asked.

Congratulations and good luck!

I think it would be totally okay. You obviously really like this other friend and maybe this will bring you even closer.
