So, you’ve gotten engaged, called your parents, and updated your status on facebook. Maybe you’ve even hired your planner and started to get the ball rolling on your plans. Now, it’s time to ask your bridesmaids to be in your wedding. Sure, you could just call them ask them or get together at your favorite restaurant and dish about your wedding. Maybe they just already know that they’re going to be in your wedding, but where’s the fun in all of that? Why not go all out and do something really cool for your girls that they’ll remember forever?
If you’re the crafty type, you might head over to Something Turquoise for some instructions on how to build yourself a
little box filled with bridesmaid goodies. A bottle of
champagne wrapped in a tank top (to wear to your killer bachelorette party), a personalized champagne glass, bottle opener, and a giant diamond. Because what girl doesn’t love
Wedding Chicks has another great box idea that will help your girls make it through your day. There’s descriptions of their dresses, the other bridesmaids (given that they don’t know each other), what’s expected of them, and then a whole bunch of examples of your
colors and dress ideas for them.
There’s some amazing ideas over on the Wedding Bee Boards, like popping the question to them. There is some great bling that can be bought on a budget.
Another great idea from the Wedding Bee Boards is to get t-shirts made for them. The bride who did this included them in the box with a poem about her relationship with each of the girls.
If you’re more of the baking type, check out Marry This
where you’ll find instructions to make these cupcake jars, including how to make the lids and even the tea towel that goes with it.
These cookies from The Pastry Studio are a simple but adorable way to pop the question. You could do them in the colors you have in mind for their dresses, but they’ cute in white too!
Or why not combine several ideas? Make the cake jars and put them into boxes with the t-shirts, champagne and jewelry. Top it off with a poem that will make them cry! After all, they’re going to be a major part of the biggest day of your life. It's a fun and emotional time; how great that you get to spend it with the ladies that matter most in your life!
