    I wanted to do something special for 2 of my bridesmaids/best friends and my maid of honor (my sister) since I have known them for years and they truely know me inside and out. Another bride on this site gave me the idea to make photobooks! I had a coupon for Shutterfly so I sat down one day and got a bunch of pictures together and made them! I ended up sending them to them in the mail (cuz who doesnt love getting packages in the mail?!) and the girls LOVED them! On the front cover was a picture of us and it read "Will you be my bridesmaid?" Then I used this quote throughout the whole photobook and at the end I wrote each girl a personal note:


    You have always been there for me
    more than just a friend
    You know exactly who I am
    and everywhere I've been
    You;re someone I can turn to
    any hour of the day
    Seems I only have to think of you
    and you'll be on your way
    No matter where life takes us
    no matter where we roam
    When I'm with you my friend
    my heart feels right at home
    We've shared so many special times
    our friendship grows each day
    We've shared our secrets and our dreams
    and laughed along the way
    And now at this most special time
    as my wedding day grows near
    I need you more than ever before
    to calm my nerves and fear
    When I am walking down the aisle
    a very happy bride
    It would mean the world to me
    to have you by my side


    Here are some of the pictures I used in the books...








    I also have my fiances two sisters in the wedding but since I dont have alot of pictures with them I decided to do something different for them. I had these made on Etsy and they came out so cute! They fold up and you tie a ribbon around them. I also had these shipped to their house so they would be suprised!



    The inside of these reads:


    The day that I marry, our families will blend,
    you'll be my sister and also my friend.
    It's just the beginning, of our brand new  life,
    as your brother and I, become man and wife.
    And nothing would give me more joy & pride,
    than to have you right there by my side.



    These were my first "DIY" type projects (even though I didnt technically do any handy work!) and they were so much fun!!!

      I love this idea, I may have to borrow it my girls and I have been friends for 20 plus years i am sure I have tons of pictures that I could use, and this would be something that they would have forever. Thanks for the great idea.
