Is 6 months to short of notice to ask someone to be a bridesmaid?

Long story short, my very good friend said her and her husband wouldn't be able to make it our destination wedding (2 provinces away) because they have two little girls. 2 months ago they then said they are able to make it, booked their flights and accommodations and using it as a mini vacation. The only reason why i didnt ask her sooner was because she said they couldn't make it. And the last two months I have been going back and forth whether or not to ask her and/or is too short notice?

    Ask her! But remember to also take into consideration if she may find it too short notice. But I would still say go for it!

    Ask her since she is making it for your wedding. It seems right and there is not short time to ask anyone. Let her be part of your celebration standing up at the altar.

    I think it's completely fine - worst thing that can come of it is that she says no, right?

    I try and look at it as if I were in their shoes and if somebody asked me even as a back up I would still be excited to say yes!

    I don't think it's too short notice. As long as you can get her a dress before then, there isnt a whole lot of time sensitive parts of being a bridesmaid (or at least not that I can think of!)

    I think if you had been thinking of asking her originally then go for it! I'm sure she'll be flattered. That being said, as she does have 2 small children and is using this as a couples vacation, you may want to be prepared for her to say no. She may just want to have the vacation but may also feel obligated to say yes. Make it clear that she is not obligated to join the party but that you would be very happy to have her.
