    I have been thinking about a fun way to ask two of my best friends to be in my wedding. They are like my sisters (especially since I don't have any) and want both of them to be a part of my day!! Do you have any fun ideas on how I can ask the both of them??

    I know you ladies will have some good ideas so please let me know what you think!!

      Here is a link that I found on unique ideas for asking friends to be in your wedding party -

      Wedaholic.com: Unique Ideas For Asking Friends To Be A Bridesmaid Or Matron of Honor

      My two favorite ideas were making the memory book or giving them the bridemaid handbooks :)

        here are some cute ideas

        I will always fondly remember the special times we shared. You've laughed with me you've cried with me and always shown you care. So on that joyful day in "November" when I will be a bride, I would be honored as well as priveleged to have you by my side.

        Will you be my bridesmaid?

        Through the in's and out's
        And thick and thin
        No matter what's happened
        There've you been

        you smile when i need it
        and listen when i grieve,
        you hug me when i cry-
        and blow boogers on your sleeve

        I treasure you friend
        More than diamonds or gold,
        and i promise i wil
        when we are saggy and old

        So please stand by my side
        when i say "I DO"
        for I wouldn't be me
        without a friend like you


        It’s hard for me to believe
        that in just a little while,
        Rob and I will be
        walking down the aisle.

        And nothing would give me
        more joy & pride,
        than to have you
        right there by my side.

        Will you be my Bridesmaid?


        4. The day, the dress
        the bride, the groom
        the joy, the tears
        will all come so soon.

        Professing true love
        to my husband-to-be
        with family and friends
        all watching me.

        I hope the sun
        will be shining down
        keep your fingers crossed
        that I'll fit my gown
        but there's one more thing
        that there needs to be
        and thats to have you
        standing with me.

          give them a hankerchief (personalized)

          On the day that I marry this wonderful man,
          please carry this hanky in your hand.

          This token of friendship from my heart to you,
          is to thank you for being there when I say "I do".

          It's meant so much to have you near,
          so many things have changed this year.

          The one thing on which I could always depend,
          was an open ear from you my friend.

          If there are tears on my wedding day,
          this hanky will gently wipe them away.

          Thank you for all the support that you lend,
          but mostly I thank you for being my friend.

          Thank you for Everything.

          For My Maid of Honor

          To ready for a wedding there's just so much to do,
          from choosing bridesmaid's dresses, to finding something blue.

          I see so very clearly, how this wedding's only one,
          of the many times you've helped me, when things needed to be done.

          Simply to say thank you, just doesn't seem to share,
          the feelings here inside me, when I see how much you care.

          You are so very special and my heart is grateful for
          the friendship that we share and will be forevermore.

          Thank you for adding joy to my life.



          My Maid of Honor

          Our friendship just gets better, through every passing year.
          But it really has been this one, that I hold truly dear.

          In helping with my wedding, and knowing you will be,
          sharing in this day, by standing up for me.

          You've taken something special, and added from your heart,
          all the things that made us friends, right from the very start.

          And though our lives are changing, our friendship will stay true.
          This my heart will count on, as my life begins anew.

          Thank you for being such a wonderful part of my life.

            I did this one for my MOH and Bridesmaids with a card and a rose. (or you can do chocolates)

            The day, the dress
            The bride, the groom
            The joy, the tears
            Will all come so soon

            Professing true love
            To my husband-to-be
            With family and friends
            All watching me

            I hope the sun will
            Be shining down,
            Keep your fingers crossed
            That I'll fit in my gown…

            But there's just one more thing
            that there needs to be…
            and that's to have you
            Standing with me!


            Will you be my bridesmaid?

              Some great ideas! I just asked them. It was kinda a given though since they already knew I was gonna ask whenever I got married. LOL

                  Mine both live in different states than I do, so I mailed them a card and a leather id bracelet (RedEnvelope - Unique Gifts, Personalized Gifts, Luxury Gifts) in my wedding colors with their name on it. I only have 2 though - so I can spoil them more than if I had 6.

                      Those are cute ideas!

                      When my sister told me that I was going to be an Aunt, she ordered one of those cookie cakes and when I opened it, it said "Congratulations Jaime, you're going to be an Aunt (Again!)!" Kinda cute :)

                      We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

                      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
