I’m not getting married for a while, probably somewhere between 1- 1.5 years, but my fiance and I already know our desired venue early and we should have the exact date locked down in the next couple of weeks. (lots of time to make payments )
All of the girls I want in my bridal party live out of town from me. I know that people can change and they recommend not asking your Bridesmaids until the time is closer, but my Maid and Matron of Honor aren’t going to change and I’m just so excited to ask them.
Would it be alright to ask my Maid and Matron of Honor once we settle on a date, and then ask the rest of my BM’s closer to the date? They’ve already been helping me with wedding stuff by sharing ideas etc. and I just want them to know that thier efforts are totally justified bc I want them to play these roles.

I don’t see why not. My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister. She actually asked me if she was going to be it when I told her I was engaged (you have to know my sister to realize that it came off in a way that is just her…it wasn’t bratty or anything, just very much my sister). I did say that she definitely would be. Now, my sister doesn’t really talk to any of my other bridesmaids (except for our cousin), so I didn’t have to worry about that getting out.

@keepsmiling19: I can understand a sister saying that lol
My MOH’s dont know the rest of my BMs either, so that might work, thanks!

I let my Maid/Matron of Honor know right away because I figured even if we were only having a best man and maid of honour, she’d be it. She’s been my best friend since I was a kid so it was a natural choice. 🙂
