So far, for the most part I am holding off for a while. Right now, my engagement is still mostly a secret – only family knows. I’ve asked my sister to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, but am waiting on officially asking anyone else. I figure I may end up waiting until May-ish just to be sure about my choices.
How about you ladies? Have you made any choices regarding your attendants yet?

I’m June 2012, but I am still waiting as well. I have only told my Maid/Matron of Honor, which is my sister. I figured that one wouldn’t change :-). I felt awkward announcing my engagement to girls who I would want to be bridesmaids! I felt like they were waiting for me to ask, right then and there, but I said that we were waiting a bit to ask people.

We have only asked the Best Man and my sister who will be the maid of honor. I’m worried that the obvious choices (people who could reasonably believe with some certainty would be in my wedding) are wondering if it’s just them or what. We might just be doing Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man so I want to hold off. Both of us know who they would be though.

I have! But 3 of them are sisters, and I’m only having 4, so it wasn’t that big of a decision, and the 3 pretty much already knew!

I’m working on it… We have our Wedding Party picked out, but most of my bridesmaids are out of town, so I sent them their stuff on Tuesday and they should be getting it tomorrow/Saturday! I did already ask two of the girls though! 🙂
My Fiance on the otherhand is waiting till he finishes his boards in April, so the guys will be later… no rush yet though, I guess!

I called my Mom and Dad first, the next people told were those in the bridal party. Both myself and partner had attendents choosen before the proposal.

I’m early June but waiting right now. I know 3 girls who are definites, and have 3 who I am debating on (will probably include 2 of them). I’m also having Maid/Matron of Honor issues, I mentioned to my bff that I wnated her to do it, but another close friend seems to want to do it more and I’m having some second thoughts on that for a variety of reasons. Plus I’m not sure how I want to ask yet. I am going to force myself to get it together soon though.

I’m certain about whom I will ask- and two have been confirmed future BM/MOH for years. I’m going to ask my best friend, a great friend, my intended’s best female friend, and one/two friends from my university.
I’m a bit torn about my university friends. One has been my longest and closest friend there, but she is not an outgoing person and doesn’t enjoy being the center of attention. I would hate to put her on the spot to feel she has to say yes (she can deal with crowds, organizing, and speeches if need be). In recent year’s I’ve become close with another girl, who is very outgoing and full of life. So I’m unsure whether I want a party of four or five people- though I think I’d be happy with either outcome.

I have two girls who know they’ll be standing up there with me, one more that I’m probably going to surprise with the invitation, and maybe a fourth if Fiance wants me to have his sister, who I’m not close to but absolutely willing to have. Won’t be sending out formal invites/requests for a few months more though!
