    How did everyone ask their friends to be their bridesmaids? I am looking for cute ideas like  a little gift asking them to be my bridesmaid. All of my bridesmaids live in a different town than I do so I will be needing to mail it to them. I have seen some cute things on etys and some bridesmaid cookies that are cute.

     

    Any ideas or how did you do it!

      I sent my bridesmaids cards made by Rebecca (Allurements by Rebecca). They had cute little sayings in them and asked if they would be my bridesmaid. I mailed them because I didn't want them to feel like they had to say yes or thought it maybe awkward to do in front of them lol! I am weird when it comes to that crap! When they called me to say YES I said something like if you can't afford it I understand & I dont want this to be like now you have to go(even though I would be pissed if they didnt!) blah blah!

      Here's a pic of what they looked like. Rebecca does amazing work and had tons to choose from! Hope this helps! Good luck and happy planning!

          this was my first DIY project, and the girls loved it!!  I will attach my photos, but i decorated a bag (orginally wanted to do a box, but couldn't find one I liked) with the girls initials, and found some great stickers from JoAnns.  I added a sticker with a seashell, and on the back found these great Mexico stickers.  Inside the bag was a card asking my girl a list of funny questions that i made with different colored cardstock and I punched holes on top to make a pretty bow.  Inside the bag I included a mini bottle of champagne and a photo and myself and the girl of honor!!IMG_0547.JPG

            Used these printable cards from etsy, and wrote personal notes on the back of each card, and attached to a bottle of bridesmaid wine!

              I made them cards. I mailed one of them with coconut bath salts. My MOH got a paper gift bag with the bath salts and coconut body butter, with the card too. Summer to September, 2011 112.JPG

               

              I had seen a picture of cards like this somewhere, thought they were cute, and knew I could do something similar.

                      I found this poem on another website and gave it to my girls with some cookies in the shape of shoes and dresses, they loved it!
