I have an interesting situation with my wedding party. All of my friends have moved out of state in the last few years. Only 2 of them do I really keep in touch with still. One of them is a guy who I have been friends with for 15 years (since high school) and the other is a girl that I have been friends with for 15 years also, but she lives very far away. I want these two to be my bridesman and bridesmaid, respectively. I also have a friend in the area and we just became friends one year ago but are very close and she loves to help plan things and is very excited about the wedding. I am having a hard time deciding if it would be appropriate to ask her to be my maid of honor if i have only known her for a year. I cannot ask the guy friend or the other girl friend to be maid of honor because they live too far away and can't help with much. I'm considering just asking my mom to be my maid/matron of honor because I know she'll be helping a lot and that would eliminate any issues with friends. Any advice would be appreciated.
