Asking friends to be bridesmaids -

Recommended Posts

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.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
