- Wedding: May 2014
Hi Bee’s –
So I have completed my first wedding project. I fell in love with the “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” box idea before I was even engaged from this blog:
I am a very “arts and crafts” kind of person, so I knew I wanted to do this. I choose two co-maids of honors and 3 bridesmaids. Three live in a different state and the other two live two hours away from me. For this reason I wanted to ask them in a very special way,
This project ended up being WAY more work than I had envisioned. I am just thankful that I have my own office at work and was able to do this during some of my down time. If I could do this all over again, I would have written out every little thing I needed from the crafts store…I ended up making muitple trips because I forgot something.
I would be lying if I didn’t enjoy every minute of putting these togethers. It made me really think about what I envisioned for my wedding, got me and my FI talking about ideas, locations, etc. It also made me think of how incredibly lucky I am not only to have my wonderful FI but 5 amazing friends.
I just put these in the mail to them today, can’t wait for them to recieve them. Until then i’m sharing with the Bee.
Cigar Boxes from Joann’s. Blush Pink (wedding color) with Hints of Champagne Gold. Got Lace hankerchiefs, and paint colors from local paint store.
Inspiration board. Used images from pintrest.
Maid of Honor box. Will be having champagne wedding favors. Used this image to show my maid’s.
Put in Gharadelli sweets and made labels with their pictures and “Bridal Party” on it. And the letters with “Our Day” “Your Dress” “Your Role” “My Girls”…this part took way more time than anticipated.
Hope they love them!
