One thing that newly engaged women are really excited about is asking their closest and dearest girlfriends to be their maid of honor and bridesmaids. Instead of asking them outright, it’s always nice to put together a cute little project to ask them. That way, they can be super excited for a year worth of wedding fun! From care packages to adorable homemade cards, the possibilities are endless. Add in your personality to make it both special and memorable, and your girl friends will be saying, “Yes! Yes! Yes!” to your big question.
Whether it’s a special occasion package, a get well bundle, or even a “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” box, everyone loves getting a box of sweet surprises! Using some unfinished cigar boxes, this box is a perfect fit for all the little souvenirs you want to put into it. It’s a great way to include the details of your wedding – the big day, the role, the other girls, and the fashion. You can add anything that will help inspire your girlfriends – color schemes, photos, cards, flowers, and more. (via Wedding Chicks)
These “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” cards are the perfect DIY project for those that are in love with creative stationery. We’ve all cut and played with paper chain people in elementary school before, so why not get creative with them now? These cut outs are awesome because you can add on the style of dress that you want all your bridesmaids to wear. You can even customize the color so they know what to expect. (via Once Wed)
Tote bags are a great bridesmaids’ gift – I mean, what can be better than a bag full of goodies? This personalized bridesmaids tote bag is perfect to show off all the different personalities of your best friends. You can customize with different hairstyles, different colors, and different styles of dresses. How cute are these!? (via Etsy – Pamela Fugate Designs)
After months and months of planning, who do you want to celebrate with on your big day? (Besides the obvious answer: your husband.) It’s your bridesmaids, of course! Show them your small token of appreciation by gifting them with a nice bottle of wine to start the celebrations. The messages that you can tie onto the bottles are the sweetest because they come from the heart! (via A Heap of Love)
Although men have to pop the big question, women should also be able to pop the question(s). And there’s no better way than to ask your girl friends to be a part of your wedding. With the long hours that your bridesmaids will have to put in, it’s a grand gesture to put together something awesome together for them! Do you have any other ideas on how to ask your closest friends to be your bridesmaids?
