Bridesmaids: Too Soon to Ask People to Be In Our Wedding Party?

Q:

Our wedding isn't for two years. Is it too soon to ask people to be in our bridal party, or is it the sooner the better?

A:

It's definitely not too soon to ask your sister or your best friend since third grade to be your bridesmaids, but that coworker who you're kind of close with, but not really? Better to hold off on her until no more than a year before the wedding. Then you'll have a clearer idea of who you want to stand up for you. Plus, you may end up wanting fewer bridesmaids once you plan out your budget.
