You have a little time. I would wait and see what happens with any of the relationships between you and the girls. Dealing with more bridesmaids honestly can be very much more stressful. I have 6 and sometimes I wish I would have only asked 3 or 4. You can be honest with them and let them know that you did want them but having more bridesmaids just wasnt in the budget. I would wait at least 6-9 mons before letting them know. I think thats a good enough time. Maybe your head could be a little more clearer about that later on.
