    This is tough, do you have any female siblings?

    If you were the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man in your friends’ weddings, I don’t think they would be surprised if you asked them to be in yours.  But there is also no need is trying to include them if you don’t feel like you are close enough to want them standing up with you at your wedding.

    Ultimately, just choose the people you want to be there to support you the most, regardless of who they are.

    I didn’t vote, because I kind of feel like you’re picking people that you do LIKE but that you aren’t super excited about. Why not pick all three as bridesmaids and not have a “real” MOH? Or pick your top two for bms and either have just two bms or have two “moh’s.” ??

    Just a suggestion

    Well here’s my two cents.  Definitely pick the girl who lives in town.  It sounds like you like her well enough, you two hang out some together, and she’s already involved by having her husband as a groomsman.  Even more importantly, however, I believe that she would be a great choice because she’s IN TOWN!  Trust me, you will not get much help from people out of town (not that they don’t want to help, it’s just really, really hard for them)  You will be grateful later to have somebody close by to help you out.  She’s already taken you to a bridal fair, so it’s clear she’s interested in helping.  Also, I bet you will find yourself hanging out with her more and more after you get married, because your husbands are such good friends.

    Even though you don’t know K as well yet, it sounds like you two are developing a pretty great friendship, and going through this wedding stuff with her will probably strengthen your friendship. And honestly, if one of my friends forgot I was engaged…she likely wouldn’t be a bridesmaid because that’s pretty lame. Even though you and S don’t talk as much anymore, you have a history. So I’d lean toward her.
