Hello Bees –
I would like to creae a cute little ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ gift. I feel like I want to create a ‘Bridesmaid Kit’ to mail to my four potiential bridesmaids.
So for example maybe a brown paper wrapped box with a Will you be my bridesmaid? card, a TShirt in the bridesmaid color, and a envelope labeled ‘Your mission, should you choose to accept it.’ that has guidelines on what I want them to wear etc. They get to pick their dress style in a color and cloth of my choosing so I could make a little booklet or something explaining that.
What did you / would you do to ask your firends to be maids?
As a side note its a winter wedding and I may mail these because my sister lives 4 hours away 🙂

@ImperialRed: I love this! ‘Your mission, should you accept it’ so cute!!
I included some treats, (wine, chocolate, a small clutch and chocolate) a notebook for notes, (this was for my maid of honor who will have a lot to do with all the decision making) my ideas for both her dress and the bridesmaids dresses and other information that she would need. I painted a wooden box from michaels and found most of her treats and goodies from World Market. Hope this helps!

This is so cute. I really like the wooden boxes. I could get them from Michaels and decorate them all cute.
The thing Im stuck on is should I send them a TShirt or maybe a sleevless shirt in the wedding color. Maybe with ‘Bridesmaid’ on it or something. I just wanted to send something a little personalized.

I’m going to mail them 2013-14 planners/agendas from either Lilly Pullitzer or Vera Bradley (haven’t decided yet) with my wedding date written in it and then they can use the planner to keep track of other wedding-related events, too! Along with a cute little “Will you be my bridesmaid?” poem. I figure they won’t have 2014 planners yet =)

@ImperialRed: I think a personalized ‘bridesmaid’ shirt would be awesome.

So funny that you chose that…I’m doing something with the same theme, but much different… My FH and I are doing a spin on the Hollywood Glamour theme…so I wanted to incorporate movies subtly into a few things. Thought about mission impossible right off the bat. I’m on an incredibly strict budget, which thankfully, my 7 bridesmaids understand completely…so I’m not actually sending them anything just yet. I’m creating a you tube video, basically a slide show with all the information for them…and a poem I found online with a few changes…even including the music in the background and a self destruct sequence at the end…something along the lines of “without you by my side, I’ll self destruct…” maybe… 🙂
