Hello everyone! My fiancé and I just got engaged 2 weeks ago. I’m not sure when I should ask my friends/ fam if they would be my bridesmaids/ maid of honor. We are planning a wedding in August of 2022 so we can take our time saving up. I know who I want on my wedding party but is it too early to ask?
I asked mines 14 months before the wedding. It's a destination wedding and my bridal party needed to be notified so they could save and just prepare since that are all in different states! So it depends on the circumstances. Just like we are sending save the dates a year out (4/1!!! ahhh!!!).
I would wait until at least summer. even though you know who you want, things can still change. and there is nothing for them to do until you start getting into planning things anyways so there's not too much of a reason to quite yet
Definitely wait until at least a year before your wedding. I guarantee so many things will change from now until then. From my experience you may end up asking someone (or multiple people) that you might not be as close with 2 years from now.
Now if you have someone extremely close to you that you absolutely know that you cannot not have being maid of honor or a bridesmaid, then feel free to ask them. But please give yourself at least a year until your wedding date to ask all of your members.
I asked right away after proposal and we have a 2 year engagement. But I knew it wasnt going to change 🤷♀️ sure something couldve happened, but I don't regret my choice! You do you as long as your certain who you want!
I asked 19 months out. I had 9 bridesmaids, I didn't regret asking early & I had zero drama with any of them the entire time. A lot of forum posts regret asking so early because relationships change but that wasn't the case for me.
