    I'm obsessed with photobooks...so when it came time to ask my girls to be in my wedding I decided to give them a book of pictures of us together...
    I ordered from shutterfly and was very pleased with the results...got a great price too, because there was a deal around Xmas for additional photobooks at half off...so I only paid full price for one of them. Shutterfly has deals like that all the time so check them out!
    I found the poem online and actually stuck 2 poems together and tweaked it slightly...
    Here are some pics

    And this is the poem I used:

    You have always been there for me
    more than just a friend
    You know exactly who I am
    and everywhere I've been
    You;re someone I can turn to
    any hour of the day
    Seems I only have to think of you
    and you'll be on your way
    No matter where life takes us
    no matter where we roam
    When I'm with you my friend
    my heart feels right at home
    We've shared so many special times
    our friendship grows each day
    We've shared our secrets and our dreams
    and laughed along the way
    And now at this most special time
    as my wedding day grows near
    I need you more than ever before
    to calm my nerves and fear
    When I am walking down the aisle
    a very happy bride
    It would mean the world to me
    to have you by my side

    I gave the books to 2 of the girls on New Years Eve and both said yes...the third book is being shipped to my friend who lives in England and she hasn't received it yet. I did it this way because I knew I wouldn't be able to ask her in person. I'll see her in April, but that will be too late!

      What a GREAT idea - they are awesome! I wish I had thought of that for my BMs!

      BTW - the blue dress (you?) are wearing in the photo on the cover of the books looks to be the same dress my BMs are wearing for my wedding!
