I am hoping that you all will help me decide how to ask my bridesmaids. Three out of the four already know, but I want to do something special to officially ask them. Three of the four live OOT, including my cousin who has no idea I am going to ask her.
I am sending them each a cute card asking, but would like to include something special with it, without going overboard. Which option would you prefer to give or receive?
1. Wax Seal Necklaces from Ritzy Misfit on Etsy
2. Flowers (and possibly chocolates?)
3. Spa gift certificate so they can pamper themselves.
Also, I will be having one junior bridemaid who is nine-years-old and FI’s niece. I have no idea what to do for her. She is local, so I might just take her some cupcakes and a cute card or something and ask her in person. She would probably most like to spend girl time over receive anything, but if you have any cute ideas for a junior bridesmaid, please let me know!

I would totally make a spa day for us all to go together and ask them then! But I am a spa freak.. any excuse!

@Karissa: I would love to be able to do something with them in person, but because three of the four live OOT and of those three, two of them live across the country, I probably won’t have that chance to do something special with them until much closer to the wedding. I want something they can enjoy now, but without blowing my budget for their gifts later.

I sent “Will you be my bridesmaid” cookies to them in the mail from www.flourpotcookies.com
You should save your money for when you buy them their BM gifts later on.

i would love a spa gc, but the necklaces seem like they’d be cheaper. i agree with @dfurst: save money now and spoil them closer to the wedding!

I also like the idea of giing them the necklaces now to save money for when it gets closer or something =)
