    I think you should do what you want to do - she's your friend and possible BM!  How far away is your wedding? Do you have some time to wait before asking to see how things go? Just a thought!!

    I guess I should add that I am in a similar situation.  My best friend and I have been friends for 20 years.  She lives in north jersey (actually right across the border in NY) and live down here and have been down here for 6 years.  FI and I bought a house 2 years ago and she has never been down to see it.  And we can go 2 months without talking sometimes.  But whenever we are together its like we still saw each other every day and she is more like a sister to me.  I know that it is going to be hard being so far away but she is going to be MOH!

    make sure you give it a lot of thought and don't ask anyone too soon, you never know what the status of your friendship will be like by next September.  But, if this is what you want, then go for it! I would either do it on the phone or wait until you see her again.

    My wedding is next Sept. 15!!  I asked all my BM already because i knew they weren't changing.   If you decide to definitely ask her, I would see if maybe you guys could meet up for lunch/dinner/drinks and ask her then.  Even if you guys meet somewhere half way!  Princeton is pretty central and has some great restaurants!

    Def be careful who you ask.  Distance is not always a factor.  My bf for the past 10 years lives in NYC and sometimes it is months that we cant see eachother but she is a BM in my wedding and very happy about it.  On the other hand, I asked my FI cousin to be on who I WAS happy with who lives around here and I regret every second of it. Make sure the people who will be good to/for you are the ones that are in it!!

    I would wait a while and see how the friendship progresses. You have a while to go and things can change in a whole year :)
