    Hello! I just finished making my Will You Be My Bridesmaid Cards, and thought this would be the perfect place to share. 

    It came from this tutorial

    Our wedding colours are blue and purple so I tried to incorporate that.. it was my first time using water colours though so I'm not sure it worked out. But I'm happy with them!

    I added a royal blue scrap book page to the inside and wrote a note. I have already asked my bridesmaids but am sending them a package with their dress and a Diamond Candle (candle with a ring inside) to them once the candles arrive.

    How did you ask your bridesmaids? Only one of my bridesmaids live in the same city that I do, so I took her out for coffee, the rest had to be on the phone. What'd you do?

      Very neat, I love the colours!!!


      For my MOH, I hadn't seen her in nearly two years. We actually had a big falling out last January (2012), and we no longer friends. I apologized to her late August for my behaviour but she was not having it. Was still very angry/hurt/ said she didn't care. However, when we got engaged in September it killed me that she couldn't be the first person I shared it with. I substituted with work friends and another life long friend (our engagement also mended this friendship as we didn't go to her DW in August but went on vacation in September ). It still wasn't everything, so when we got back and after everyone had started reacting to our news, I quickly sat down on the couch and sent her a text. I explained how despite the fact that we weren't friends, she was there through a huge part of our relationship, and I just wanted to let her know we had gotten engaged. I didn't hear back from her for almost 2 days, and when I did, it was everything. She said she had gotten right after I had sent it, but didn't know how to respond. She was touched, and she cried, and she realized all the things she had said to me the month before weren't true, she did miss me, she did miss our friendship, and she was so happy for me.


      Since then we have talked as much as we can (She is out in Calgary, I am in Toronto). She came home for Christmas and we finally saw each other on December 28th. It was her birthday on the 27th, so I got her a few DVD's of movies I know she loves, but doesn't own. I also got her a big giant fake ring, and a maid of honour button. I put that together in a small box, with the ring nestled in a bunch of tissue paper, and the button front and centre when she opened the box. She cried when she opened it, and said yes. Despite all of our past issues, there isn't anyone that could replace her standing next to me.


      My other bridesmaid, a beautiful, wonderful friend who I have known for over 12 years, I simply asked her through text haha. We were talking wedding stuff, and her precious baby girl, and I just asked. Very informal, nothing special, but I was terrified of asking her, because I bailed on her for her wedding this past August, so she had absolutely every single right to say no to me. But she didn't and has taken a vested interest in helping me plan and being very involved. I appreciate her being the bigger person and getting over my horrible friendship moment with her, and being genuinely happy for me.


      I have amazing friends and I take them for granted. Not any more!


      Your friends are going to absolutely love those cards! What a beautiful memory!

        I definitely think it's better to ask; if they say no, you did all you could, but you won't regret not asking & wondering what would have happened. I'm so glad that the your bridesmaids all said yes.
        Sounds like your friendships are going to change for the better because of your marriage!
        Thanks for sharing your story with me.

            Good job. I wish I would have thought of doing something like this earlier.
