I knew who my three girls were. My sis and my two bffs. One is my mother’s-bff’s daughter, aka my 2nd generation best friend. The other I have known for 15 years and intoduced me to my FI. At one point in our lives or another I had promised them ALL the MOH title. But my sister won out. I unoffically asked them before we were engaged if they would be in the party. and after we were officially engaged I mentioned my sister would be MOH.

ETA: As for how I asked them….Since I already knew for Years who the 3 would be, they all knew from the get go. I asked them individually when I was offically engaged. It was kinda like “I know we have been talking about this forever, but will you OFFICALLY be my Bridesmaid?” They were all super excited and respected my decision to make my sister MOH

I had always told one of my friends that she would be my MOH when I got married.  So, when I got engaged, I asked her.  It wasn’t anything particularly special, but just the fact that I finally got to formally ask her instead of always talking about it hypothetically is what made it special.  The other two girls…I honestly can’t remember if it was in person or over the phone.  We don’t live near each other, so it might have been over the phone for at least one of them.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I did it in person.  I made each girl a little giftbag that had a special card in there and then I made each of them tank tops that were bedazzled with either Bridesmaid, Maid of Honor, or Junior Bridesmaid.

@AndysCraftsNmore:  no texting, that is plainly rude!!! you can call but i think yu should ask in person. they will be there for you, they have to spend money for you, so give them some respect 🙂

i made a personalized card for each of my BMs. I plan to give them once I meat every one of them. After i do that i am sure my FMIL will be furious to find out I did not choose the girl she wanted me to ask. Oh well she is not a family and I met her 4 times so why ask somebody like that (just because FMIL has a better relationship with her than with me). I cant wait actually for this, because the thought of having to say what I want and that is completely appropriate I choose BMs myself, and FMIL will just act childlish and try to convince me what is apprpriate in her closed mind. Ohh vent again

@AndysCraftsNmore:  I had a friend ask me to be her bridesmaid via text…  surprise surprise, she’s been a huge bridezilla during her whole planning process.

I’m sending each of my girls a box, with a mini bottle of champagne that has a custom label that says “One last question to pop!” and a locket necklace, where I’m putting a note asking them inside.  Then also in the box will go a card, some paint chips of possible wedding colors, and a little postcard saying when and where we’re getting married.

My sisters were assumed, I realized about a month later i hadn’t actually ASKED them so I made a point of doing so when I saw them.  BM J I asked over skype because I won’t actually see her in person until the wedding.  BM M and I went out for lunch when I was in our hometown a few weeks ago and I asked her in person.

My girls didn’t all know each other well, and I was trying to tie them in together while 7 of us reside in 4 different states.  I decided to tie it into a theme’d invite/request with each included girl’s picture and I wrote them each vows.  It went over really well!
