I knew one thing for certain when Fiance and I started planning our wedding – I wanted to find a special way to ask my wedding party. I’m a sentimental person and have always loved all the little details.
‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’is a fairly new trend that I’ve seen on the web. And there are so many fun and creative ways to ask!
Some of my favorites are:
While these are all fabulous ideas, I wanted to come up with a variation on my own. It all started with these adorable cards I found on Etsy (Etsy deserves its own post!) I decided to have cards made that said ‘hello beautiful’ in shades of pink.
They turned out amazing!!
I wrote each one of my nine girls (eight bridesmaids, one junior) a note about why I was asking them to be part of my special day.
But I didn’t want to stop there.
I thought it would be fun to give each of them some of my favorite things as a ‘thank you’ for accepting (or considering – part of the reason why I wanted to send them a card is because I didn’t want anyone to feel like they had to say yes on the spot. Being part of a wedding is a big commitment, and can be a lot of money).
I started with my favorite container from Hallmark.
Then I added my favorite eos balm
A small bottle of Essie ‘wedding-themed’ nail polish
And hand lotion from Bath and Body Works.
I individually wrapped each item and put them inside the Hallmark gift box.
And sent them off to all nine girls.
I’m happy to report.. they all said yes! 🙂
