I wanted to find a unique way to ask my bridal party, so I created a 'Bridesmaid Box'
I went to the Dollar Store and bought a bunch of candy and treats
I also picked up a cute gift box and a super cute and girly luggage tag
I then went to Walmart and Target and picked up a few other supplies including a few of my favourite "wedding" DVD's (27 Dresses, Bride Wars and Bridesmaids). I also picked up a nail polish in the color of the dresses I want the girls to wear.
P.S. the color of the nail polish is Mademoiselle by Essie
I then printed off a "Will you be my Bridesmaid" template online and put in into a photo frame to also place inside of the box
I began assembling all of the items into the box.
I also added some cute and colorful tissue paper (sorry, no photo taken at that step) I then made a tag that said
"It would be really sweet if you would be part of our special day" and tied it with some pink ribbon around some of the Sweetarts"
I played around with the items getting them just right and then I was finished, I put some ribbon on the outside of the box, added the Luggage tag and put a piece of cardstock in it with her name inside, like a gift tag.
and Ta-Da... my finished Bridesmaid Box
They were a hit, and everyone loved them!!...how could they possibly say no when they were given so much candy!
One of the best parts of this DIY was also that it was ridiculously inexpensive, see below for cost run down:
Candy from Dollarstore $11.00
Luggage Tag from Dollar Store $1.00

Tissue Paper from Target $.99
27 Dresses DVD from Target on sale for $2.99

I had the ribbon and flower already on hand.
Total cost of project was approx. $38.93
