    I made sugar cookies using cookie cutters from Surlatable.com.  I used a dress, high heel, heart, palm tree, and an engagement ring for the shape of cookies.  They're only like $1 each.  Then I decorated them and wrote things like "will you be my bridesmaid?", the date of the wedding, location of wedding, etc.  I mailed them to my girls because most are in different states, along with a framed photo collage of the two of us (cheap 5x7 frame from Michaels), with a poem in the middle.  The poem read "It's hard to believe that in just a little while, James and I will be walking down the aisle, Nothing would give me more joy and pride, Than to have you there by my side, Will you be my Bridesmaid/Maid of Honor?"  I found the poem and collage idea on another website, I'm definitely not that creative!  I also put a card in the box too, just explaining how important they are to me but how I would completely understand if they couldn't stand up.  The girls LOVED it and they all called me up right when they received it and said yes.  If you're mailing sugar cookies though, make sure you wrap each cookie individually in plastic wrap, then put in one of those cheap tupperware containers, with bubble wrap surrounding the cookies in the container.  Just make sure there's no space for the cookies to move around in the container.  My girls said a few cookies were slightly cracked but nothing horrible.  Here are some pics...

        I actually went to my local wine and spirits store, and I asked them about it.  They had it shipped to them for me, and they did not charge me any shipping!  I just had to pay for the wine.

          These are such cute ideas!! I've also had clients get "Be my bridesmaid?" written on cupcakes for a tasty and sentimental treat :) Their bridesmaids loved opening the cute little bakery box and finding such a nice surprise!

              One idea I love is giving your soon to be bridesmaids cute little day planners with your Wedding date circled or marked off somehow. Or I've received personalized cards that have a picture of me and the bride on the front. The wine idea is great! Have fun!!

              I invited all my wedding party over for dinner, and made appetizers, signature blue drinks (one of our wedding colors), and a sit down dinner!  For the places around the table, I wrote everyone a card thanking them for being a part of this journey with us, and a special little note from my boyfriend and I (fiance STILL sounds weird to say!).  I got Beach house wine, the bottle that is blue with starfish on it, and had them scattered around the table...needless to say we had lots of wine and champagne!  Everyone's significant other and some more friends came after dinner and we had a party!  It was such an awesome night and my guests enjoyed it!

                I love this idea, but decided not to do it, since we're trying to cut every expense possible, and these would've involved a shipping charge to get them, then more postage to send them to long-distance bridesmaids.  Still, my favorite idea out there for Mexican weddings!

                Miniature pi±atas, which could easily be "filled" with tiny notes popping the question.

                  Thank you for the ideas. I think I am going to give some gifts to my bridesmaids and a card while we have breakfast all together.
