Hello fellow brides,
I just wanted to share with you the way I've asked my bridesmaid. I took inspiration from the fabulous pinterest box that you guys have probably all seen.
While searching for those boxes at AC Moore, I stumbled upon these boxes that looked like mini luggages and I fell in love.
I'm all about videos so I also made a mini video that showed pics of all the bridesmaid and I wrote how much they all meant to me. In the video, I asked each one separately to be part of the wedding. I got the inspiration from this video: http://blog.theknot.com/2013/01/08/my-will-you-be-my-bridesmaid-video-proposal/
In the end of the video, I told them they could open the box.
Instead of saying "be my maid" I painted there names inside.
Included in the box:
Boarding pass with their name and wedding date/location
Mini passport: I had a head shot of the bridesmaid and put details of wedding i.e. their role, duties, date, location and what they would possibly wear
Grey Goose Nip
Ring that lights up & cute bridal team button- to use for bachelorette
Wedding coaster trivia
You can see the Boarding pass-- On the back of the boarding pass put a checklist with the items in the box
Picture of the box-- see doesn't it look like a mini luggage? haha
I also cut made luggage-like tags and wrote in name with press on letters and glued on a charm of their first name.
Overall, it was a huge labor of love but I would not have done it any different
