Will you be my bridesmaid?

Nowadays it’s pretty common to just pick up the phone and ask your girls if they’ll be your bridesmaids. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, I wanted to do a little something special for my girls. After all, I was asking them to play a huge role in not only my wedding but the planning itself. I wanted to really show them that I appreciated each of them so I spent months, yes months, putting together these ideas.

I started out by grabbing a few boxes from the local craft store and painting them to match our wedding colors. Then, I used sparkly felt stickers to personalize each box with the name of each awesome girl.


Next, I scoured the internet and put together some ideas for color and decor, to give the girls a feel for the look I was going for. Then I typed up a little bit about our plans, some info about their dresses, etc.

I found these tumblers and thought they were the cutest, so I put them in the gift bag, along with the box I’d made.

Lastly, I enclosed a card with a “formal” request to be my bridesmaids and maids of honor.

Sure, it took a few months to get all of this together but it was so worthwhile. The look of surprise on the girls’ faces were priceless!
