Wait til closer to a year out.  A lot can change in 2 years- people move, friendships change, financial situations can change, people can have babies, etc.

I think if they are family you can go ahead and ask them. I already asked my sister to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, actually the way I told her I was engaged was by telling her I was going to need her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor lol.

I’d wait. I’m also having a destination wedding and wanted my bridal party to be able to know where and when the wedding was so they could decide if it was affordable and doable for them. I didn’t want anyone to feel obligated before they knew the details. (If I wasn’t having a destination wedding I would have asked sooner though!)

We asked our bridal party two years out. They were all family and friends that we’ve known for so long that we knew weren’t going away anytime soon.

 I asked the last of my 5 bridesmaids the day she told us she was pregnant (13 weeks). 

Our wedding was 3 days before her daughter’s 1st birthday.

TorontoBlondbee:  Since they’re family it sounds safe enought to ask them!!!

I f-cked up & asked my girls a year in advance (not family) & one girl who is the best man’s gf was my solid pick. Of all the girls I asked, she was supposed to be SOLID. He was ring shopping with me FOR HER ENGAGEMENT RING (they were together 5+ years). ONE WEEK after I asked her to be my bridesmaid, she CHEATS ON HIM. I posted a few times ago the saga…….. Basically she is stuck being my bridesmaid still & they are trying to be ‘friends’ UGH.

Meanwhile, he is screwing some new chick & he told his ex that he isnt seeing anyone & he just needs time apart before they get back together. DOUBLE UGH. It could be worse. Definitely ask your family members & you won’t think twice about it.
