I think if the love is there even if the contact isn’t always up to scratch then go for it, I ahve some friends whom i love dearly but dont always have a very good track record of keeping in touch with. plus this occasion might just be whant ure friendship needs to pich it up

You don’t have to have day-to-day contact to consider someone a close friend, so I don’t think it’s wierd at all.  You know them best, and if you consider them to be close to you, then go for it.  I’m sure they’ll be flattered.

For my out of town bridesmaids, I went to Hallmark.com, found an e-card about friendship that I liked, wrote a heartfelt message about what each friendship means to me, and asked them to be a bridesmaid at the end.  Also, Hallmark.com offers the option to send the e-card via a Facebook message as well, so you won’t have to track down email addresses if you don’t have them.

If you still consider them to be a close-to-your-heart friend, then it’s not weird at all. One of my BM’s I haven’t seen in person in 5 years I think? We were best friends for 7-8 years and we’ve always kept in touch even though I moved to a different state. Even though I don’t get to see her, she’s the kind of friend I’d call in crisis-mode or to share something awesome with. Do whatever feels right to you! 🙂

I liked GeorgiaTeacup’s suggestion of an e-card or you could always message them for their address and send them a physical card as well. Good luck!

Sounds like you have established relationships with these friends in that you are comfortable enough to not have to speak to them everyday yet still know that you have meaningful friendships.  I think they will be flattered and honored to be your bridesmaids.
