I don’t know of any “etiquette” involved with that, but I would think ask them as soon as you know the date so that they can start saving up money (if they need to) and they can be involved with the planning and dress shopping, etc.

6-9 months is perfect. (Longer than that, and some people find that their friendships change more than they would have expected!)

I asked my girls a couple weeks ago, so like 9ish months.  My fiance isn’t asking his men for a few more months.

  I think nine months is perfect :-). It gives your bridesmaids time to save and plan. I asked my girls at about a year out. They were ones that I have had chosen for a long time, but I still wanted to wait. Fiance has asked all but one of his groomsmen.

I asked my Maid/Matron of Honor as soon as i got engaged and my bridesmaids as soon as we had a date.  So about 10-11 months for the girls and Fiance asked his best man right away and his brothers a few months later.

I asked mine a year in advance and haven’t had a problem, plus they were able to plan for everything a little easier. I think 9 months out is a good time.
