Recommended Posts

Beautiful passport invites! I'm going to try to make some... we'll see. I tried to make Save the Dates too and ended up buying..

I asked my bridesmaids probably... 3 months after we got engaged? So almost two years before we get married. I knew who I was asking though, and everyone is either just having babies or going to have babies or moving or graduating.. so wanted to give them PLENTY of notice. (It's totally ok if any of them can't come, but wanted to make it as easy for them as possible to plan!) I have 5 - My sister is my MOH, my best friend, two friends from my hometown I've known since kindergarten, and my closest friend in my current city.

I asked my bridesmaids after they booked & I knew they were going. originally only wanted 3, but FI got ahead of me & asked his guys the days after we were engaged! & he asked 5! Needless to say I politely explained to him the delicate nature of wedding planning without consulting the bride first! But I loved his enthusiasm lol

I asked from the jump. Although I do not know who is coming as of yet. Who ever is there is there. That is my mantra. I REFUSE TO STRESS OVER WHAT I CAN'T CONTROL !!! it took me a long time to get to this point.

Thanks.. I wanted to try to but it wasn't in the cards.. I am going to take a shot at my invitations though. I did notify my friends and family 2yrs ago when we got engaged that we were planning a destination wedding. We didn't get a lot of support mostly just opposition as to how selfish we were being. So I didn't really have the chance to ask anyone. This is why I am so thankful for these boards don't really have anyone to talk wedding to and I am so lost. He has all his guys ready and asked. I do have my daughter as a definite BM.

I also want to wait until booked but don't want to wait too long either. I guess I will go ahead and ask within the next month or two. I do have a dilema. His BM is his best friend like a brother to him. He was married two years ago and ofcourse FI was his BM. I was not in the wedding his wife and him are the godparents to our children. We are friends but they were friends first they all grew up together they reference each other as brothers and sister. They are all assuming that she is a BM however I had no intentions of making her one now I don't know what to do. Am wrong to not ask her? Or do I just bite the bullet and ask her?
