Hope none of my bridesmaids are trolling through here, since I haven’t delivered them yet!
Here’s an unboxing stop motion I put together: https://vimeo.com/76885948 You can see everything inside here. It’s only 26 seconds long, I promise it’s short!
In the box, I included:
– A glitter topcoat from Sephora by OPI (got them on sale!)
– Adorably delicious chocolate mice from L.A. Burdick’s (a splurge)
– A handmade spool with a secret message (got the idea on Etsy, couldn’t stomach paying $14 for each spool so I made them myself)
– Info cards
– Inspiration photos
– Paint chips for my colors
– Personal letter written in cards from Rifle Paper Co.
On the box itself, I drew a laurel in mint (my primary wedding color), and their first initial in black.
These took a looooot more time and energy than I expected, but I’m so pleased with the way they turned out 🙂
Here are a few pictures, if you don’t wanna watch the video!

These are a-freaking-dorable. I did nothing but ask my friends because I’m lazy traditional 😉
I would be careful with ‘the duties’ card. Depending what they say, they could be breaching etiquette and/or eye-roll inducing. JMHO.

@Skittles131: Haha good call! For the duties card, I wrote that all I really wanted was for them to be there for me at the rehearsal dinner and wedding, and that they weren’t obligated to throw any showers or bachelorette parties, or feel obligated to attend if there were any. Most of them are out of town, and having been an out of town bridesmaid myself, I just wanted to reassure them more than anything else!

This is AWESOME! Quick question though, which color did you get from Sephora? The sale is still on and I might want to steal some of the ideas (ok fine maybe most lol)

@minipenguin: Bahaha steal away, I thought it was a great deal and I’m still fighting the urge to get myself one too. The color is Only Gold For Me!
