It really depends on the people you’re thinking of asking. If they’re people that you’re related to, or you’ve known for many years, then I think you can ask them whenever you want. Pretty much the only reason people advise others to hold off on asking is because sometimes your relationship with the bridesmaids can change if the wedding is a long way off, especially if the bride and bridesmaids have different expectations about their respective duties.

Given that your wedding is only a year away, though, I think it would be fine for you to ask them now – that gives them a year to save up and get ready for the wedding.

Unless you’re asking sisters, maybe wait a few more months….occasionally relationships change or you make new friends that you may want to include.

I’d wait until you book the ceremony site, unless you are really close and they will be there no matter what.

My wedding is November 2013 and I just asked my bridesmaids today – the wedding will involve a long distance trip for all of them.
