I’m trying to write letters to each of my bridesmaids (as part of their gifts). However, I’m a terrible writer and I don’t even really know where to start. I love each of my girls, and all for different reasons, and they’ve been amazing, I’m just not sure where to even start, or how to put my thoughts and love for them onto paper.
Can anyone help me? Does anyone have an example they could share with me? Or if you’re an expert letter-writer could you shed some light on how to format a nicely written letter?

hmmm… maybe try combining/including-
-why you’re thankful for her
-a special/happy memory
-specific character traits about her that are wonderful
-something fun you did together
-how/when you met
-how you’re so happy she is part of your wedding, and hope that she will stay part of your new, married life!

Sorry I don’t have any advice right now, but this is such a great and thoughtful idea. No matter what you write, they will LOVE it. <3

@red_rose: thank you thank you thank you! That at least give me focal points! I have issues with writing about lots of random things with no rhyme or reason to any of it! haha.
@thehoneybear: Thanks! I am really excited to write them, the girls mean a whole lot to me and I wanted to express how much I really appreciate them!

I think pulling on a favorite memory is a great start…especially if you can tie that in with the reasons why you love that person. That’s kinda what I did for asking them to be my bridesmaid. Or pull a FEW memories that highlight your main reasons for loving them!

Ok my helpful bees! Can you read this and tell me what you think? Please keep in mind it’s still a rough draft, but I look forward to any consructive criticism!
Years ago something very special happened; two good friends gave birth to two little girls. Over the next twenty four years those two friends watched their daughters grow, travel, succeed, but most importantly become incredible friends with an unbreakable bond.
We have never lived in the same city but I feel like you’re close to me every day. You’re one of the most important people in my life and if I had a sister, you’d be her. I’m so thankful for your honesty and your compassion, for our shared love of all things fluffy, for your desire to see the good in everything and everyone, but most of all, I’m thankful to have your friendship in my life.
I have so many memories of sitting in your closet and discussing (trying to convince you?) how Keanu Reeves really isn’t that hot, and how Blink 182 was probably the best band to walk the earth. Watching The Breakfast Club and Speed and sneaking out at night to tear down stupid boys tree forts, all while getting life threatening wounds and toughing them out so our parents wouldn’t find out. After those awkward years, we learned so much about each other and the similarities we shared, our love of musicals, of reading, movie watching, boy chasing and our general knack for being able to read each other like a book and be each other’s therapists when needed.
Thrilled cannot describe what I feel to have you standing by my side, as my Maid of Honor, on one of the important days of my life. That you love and accept the person I’ve chosen to be with fills my heart with warmth and confirms that I’ve made the right decision. I get one day, but your friendship is forever, and I wouldn’t have anyone else in your place. So thank you from the very bottom of my heart, for being the very best friend a girl could have. I hope that you will always be a part of my life, for all my upcoming ups and downs, and that I will be there for all your future life adventures. I hope that I can be as good of a friend to you, as you’ve been to me.
