very good advice! I had mine picked out before I was even engaged, and announced them shortly there after..but they’re people I know will stick around. My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor, my FI’s two sisters, my closest cousin, and my childhood best friend. Otherwise, I definitely would have waited.

Thanks for the advice. I almost asked FI’s best friend’s girlfriend just because I felt bad. I mean, I get along with her really well and consider her a friend, but only would have asked her because she told me she would have me stand up if her and her boyfriend got married. I’m glad I didn’t because their relationship has kind of been on the rocks lately. I’m having my 4 best friends that I have been friends with since 2nd grade and middle school and also FI’s sister who I consider one of my closest friends.

This is really good advice. I have a LONG engagement, and I haven’t officially asked anyone yet (although it is understood that my two best friends, who helped Fiance pick out the ring, will obviously be there!). There are a few other girls that I’m close with now, but the wedding is in 3 years. I have no idea what will happen between now and then! So I just told everyone that I’m waiting until at least the year and a half mark to ask anyone, and luckily they were all very understanding!
