OMG! I am not sure what I did to make them so HUGE! Sorry guys!

 

Disregard this one....I was able to figure it out and went back in to change them.

I went online and found old funny photos of bridesmaids from different eras and got the pics printed up and made cards for my friends. I also wrote each one (4 in total) a letter and told them how important they were to me and reminded them of a funny story from our past and that we would pay for their dresses as a gift to them then I mailed them out. They were all surprised because I led on for about 2 months after we got engaged that we hadn't made any decisions about plans yet, even though I was planning to ask them all along! A couple girls said they even cried it was so sweet and they were so suprised. Even my one friends husband told me she was so touched she cried...and that it meant a lot to her. I said well it's not everyday you get to tell your friends how important they are to you and what an impact they have had on your life...i figured now was a good time.

I asked my girls in person, wish I would have done something cute when asking them. Trying to make up for my not creative way of asking with their bridesmaid bags i'm putting together.

Yeah I asked one of mine BM's in person, one over the phone and the other (who is in Korea) by email. Pretty lame. But I hadn't joined the forum at this time so I didn't have a ton of great ideas at my disposal and I am clearly creatively challenged. Luckily they didn't have high expectations!

I purchased these BM cards from Etsy:

 

CUSTOM Thank you for being my Bridesmaid by FinePrintsDesign

 

FYI:

Oops, link is for "thank your for being my bridesmaid," but they look just like the one listed on the link! I couldn't find the other one!

 

If I wouldn't have purchased these, I found really cool wedding paper at Hobby Lobby and Party City (I don't know if you have these stores where you live or not). You could purchase your own paper & make up a poem or just ask "will u be my bridesmaid?"

I didn't even get a chance to ask them, lol They live in TO and I in Mtl and a couple weeks after I got engaged I had a planned visit to see them so waited to announce my engagement then. They were all excited about our engagement, and then made comments like- ''don't make us wear anything pouffy!'' haha. So yeah, it was assumed. But I was gonna pick them anyway.
