I originally had 7... That turned to 9.

 

My sister, my 2 cousins, his 2 sisters, and 4 best friends. I plan on asking them to be bridesmaids for Christmas by sending them a care package.

@@TheBHolders Awe I love the care package idea! I've seen so many cute ones on pinterest and wanted to do that but ended up blurting it out to everone out of excitment haha. I started off with 3, which turned into 5! The guilt of not asking some friends got to me :P

Lol yes that guilt is strong. I love the cigar boxes I've seen on Pinterest. I was thinking of decorating child shoe boxes (I have a toddler). I got a deal on vista print and ordered "bridesmaid" light keychains, sticky notes, pens, I am also going to add a tealight Yankee candle (12 pack on sale for Memorial Day for $5) I'm also buying extra to use for the wedding. I'm waiting for a groupon deal for The Body Shop I am going to get them bar soap. Along with hand sanitizers from bath and body works. Actually scratch the shoe box I will put the stuff in gift bags and give/mail it to them. I also have "bridesmaid" labels that can go on the bags. I will post pics when my project is completed. I also ordered bridesmaid invitations with a little poem. I plan for this to be their christmas gift.

I have 4 girls and a "man of honor" who has been my BFF for 25 years. I asked them all with bottles of wine that popped the question. (Personalized labels)

@@TheBHolders - what a cute idea (re care packages).  Fortunately (and unfortunately) I just have 1.5 bridesmaids LOL.  My sister is my Matron of Honor and my 10 year old niece is going to be a jr bridesmaid since she's too big to be a flower girl.  My fiance only has a Best Man so that's how my "envisioned 4" turned to 1.5.  I didn't do anything fancy because they were there when he proposed.  

 

My sister & I made a pact years ago to be each others Maid/Matron of Honor and my niece has been hinting strongly about being a flower girl.  I surprised her when I said well, I guess this means you can't be a flower girl since I'd like you to be a jr. bridesmaid. :)

That's cute. The wine bottles are a really great idea... (Adding to my list) I am on the more frugal side. My fiancé has 6 groomsmen... So were quite uneven. His youngest sister will be 18 so I'm counting her as a JR bridesmaid

This is the wine labels I did (etsy)... But with black label and pink/white writing. The girls all loved them!!

I have 3 but trying to decide on one more. My cousin/best friend is staying at a different resort. I don't really want to ask her because she won't be able to do the things that I want her to do. She is only staying at a different resort because its like a 80 dollar price difference which I don't think is a big deal since she still have to pay the fee for the pass to come to the wedding but its her vacation so I can't dictate what she has to do! I just don't want to ask her when she lives 7 hours away from me and she won't even be at the hotel with me during the wedding. I kind of feel like its pointless!

 

I made collages of pictures of us on Shutterfly and wrote will you be my bridesmaid on them and mailed them in a pretty picture frame!

@@TheBHolders sounds amazing, would love to see pictures, great idea turning it into a Christmas present!

 

@@girlinthecity97 Does your fiancé not have many friends? Mine doesn't and is having a hard time trying to match my 5 bridesmaids haha, whoops! I told him it's ok if the sides are uneven but he likes symmetry haha.

 

@@kmk2016 My girls would definitely love the wine. I would probably do champagne just so I could literally pop the question.. I'm a sucker for puns!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
