Welcome to the hive and congrats on your engagement!

I just asked over the phone because we all live at least 40 minutes apart and I don’t see most of them as often as I’d like. I have seen some cute little cards, though with poems and pictures of each girl that some brides make by hand if you’re crafty.

I had such plans to ask them.  I was thinking of making a collage of the WORST bridesmaid’s dresses I could find on the internet on the front of a card, with “this could be you”. 

However, we’ve talked about being eachother’s bridesmaids forever, so as soon as I told them we were engaged they were just like… “I get to be a bridesmaid!!!” and it seemed kind of redundant.

I sent them each card asking them if they would be my bridesmaid.

It was a flat card with pretty writing that said “will you be my bridesmaid?” in big letters then a little thank you note for being a great friend/sister and stating why I want them to stand up with me. To get to the card though they had to untie a string that was holding on a little paper chain of bridesmaids with a name on each girl.

I cut out little yellow dresses and hair for each “girl”. It was so cute! I got a lot of excited phone calls after I sent them out.

I dont know if that made sense how I explained it but I am pretty sure I got the idea of of the Bee. I can’t find it anymore but here is a pic of the “chain” I was talking about except mine had dresses and names on each one.

I took my girls out to dinner alone and asked them over a glass of champagne…maybe not as creative as a keepsake card but it did the job and now i have the memory of those nights out with my best girls 🙂

I asked a couple in person or over the phone (right after he proposed) but then sent each girl a “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” card…and they all loved them! One of my dearest friends lives in another city and so, I didn’t ask her over the phone and she LOVED the card!!
