@tarapaul2016:  I love the idea of the boxes, and I would ship them BUT I think you’re going a little far with a ‘will you be my’ box.  

You have so much figured out already – they haven’t said yes yet and you’re telling them about their dresses etc.

I think you should stick to something small and sweet, with a note asking them to be your BM – maybe include an RSVP card for them to send back?

I did something very similar for my bridesmaids and they all loved it! I also knew they would all accept.  I had a box that I stamped on the outside that said “will you be my” and when they opened it there was a tank top that had the word bridesmaid on it, I also included a chanpagne glass that was hand painted with their names on it, a small bottle of champagne and a bottle opener.  I also typed up a cute little poem and put that in the box. I invited them all out to dinner for a “girls night” and gave them the boxes.

 My FI did something similar for the guys, he used ingraved cigar boxes and put a small bottle of alcohol, shot glass with their name and the tie that they would be wearing for the wedding.  He mailed his, the guys had no clue until the package came in the mail and they were a huge hit! Of course I saw all of this on pinterest lol

Yup, I did boxes too [horrible picture, my camera blows]

I will be hand delivering one, and shipping the other.

@tarapaul2016:  I just saw the little text cards you have there, I can’t read them, so I assumed you were giving more information than you are, I guess I was wrong.  I still think that they should be a little more gifty than ‘will you be my BM and here’s all the stuff I’m thinking….’ just my opinion.

I didn’t do a box, I just asked my girls.

@tarapaul2016:  I think they are lovely! I also think it’s a good idea to put in stuff like “your role” and what the dresses would be like. I mean, they will probably say yes no matter what, but if you wanted them in super expensive gowns you weren’t paying for, better to know upfront so they could bow out, right?
