Hi Ladies!

 

This is my first post.  I just wanted to share how I will be asking my bridesmaids, since I am pleased with how it turned out!  I wanted to give them something special for the money they will be spending to attend.  Most of their husbands/bfs are groomsmen too, and my fiance isn't doing anything special to ask them.

 

I ended up assembling a box containing a funny luggage tag that says "be my senorita?", a 2 year pocket calendar with the dates marked along with special dates in their lives - birthdays, anniversaries, upcoming weddings etc. and phone numbers of the travel agent and the bridal party in a little note section the calendar has,  a mini bottle of champagne and a starfish!  It cost me about $20 per bridesmaid.

 

For the calendar I used a template on Microsoft Publisher but i followed the directions from this website: http://diyfrugalbride.blogspot.com/2013/10/how-to-make-your-bridesmaids-planner_24.html

I will attach my template as well.

I've been engaged only a week so haven't even asked my bridesmaids or moh yet! Lol but was thinking of making a cute diy label to put over a wine bottle to try to surprise them in a cute way saying "will you be my bridesmaid!" ?? But not decided yet..

One if my to be bridesmaids is overseas so we can only chat on Skype or face time so I've been trying to think of a fun way to ask her..?
