- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
Hi Bees! So I very recently got engaged and I am wondering when I should ask my bridesmaids? We are planning for the wedding to be in about 12-13 months. I already made up cute little boxes to ask them with and I am wondering if I should just ask right away for two reasons…
1. We will be in my home town (only about 90 miles from where we live) for the weekend I will see at least two (the two I am planning on asking to be Matron of Honor and Maid of Honor) if not most of the girls I am going to ask while we are there.
2. I am asking my best friend of 9 years, best friend of 25 years, and three cousins to be in the wedding – so it is unlikely to change! I am sure most of them know already that I will ask them at some point.
But just wondering what you think? Is there an ideal time frame to do this in?
Only logistical issues I can see are the following…I do not think I will ever be able to get them all together at the same time. I would love to do a brunch or something but I think one or two would end up not being able to attend.
One friend has serious medical issues and I was Maid/Matron of Honor in her wedding but plan on asking her to be my bridesmaid since it would be less pressure on her. I really just want her to be there and be a part of the wedding if she is able to…she may not know with 100% certainty on any given day due to her medical issues.
