    Hi ladies,

    How did you ask your bridesmaids if they would be in your bridal party? Email, phone, cards? Any other creative ideas? And besides that what is the proper etiquette? I have my best friend, 2 neices and sister. I was just MOH for my sister in August.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

      I asked my girls on the phone. My MOH(s) - I am having two - are my sister-in-laws. And my lone BM is a good friend from college. She's the only one from the circle of college friends able to travel to Belize...so once I found out she was able to attend I asked her if she would stand up with me. I didn't want to ask before I knew she was going so I did not add any pressure into her decision making.

        our schedules are so busy, my moh and i played phone tag and then i just finally texted her! HA!

        I asked my SIL over email! either that or text. not very personal huh?

        but both of them were thrilled.

        i am still deciding mine, but my best friend from HS is my MOH and i am having my two sister in laws for BM's. I was my SIL's - married to my brother - MOH last year.

                I only have 2 bridesmaid and 1 MOH, so each one got a card in the mailed designed for them asking to be in my wedding.

                    Thanks ladies. These are all great ideas. I just ordered some "Will you be my bridesmaid" cards. Trying to find something cute to go with them.

                      I made both the girls cards to "officially" ask them...I used the same poem! I am a scrapbooker, so I made the cards and printed the poem with their names in them. The girls loved them....
