I think it’s such a personal thing, and should be done in whatever way you’re comfortable with. I was so excited to be engaged and to ask them, that I called them the same night to ask. They all live in CA and I live in Seattle, so the next time I went to visit I made them fortune cookies and wrote “Will you be my bridesmaid?” (and a bunch of “Spaceballs” quotes).

Honestly… the more I get into wedding planning, the more I’m learning that a lot of popular things right now are really recent trends, and that I don’t want to follow a bunch of etiquette and rules that make me uncomfortable, unhappy, or unnecessarily poor! 

I think I heartfelt card from a friend will be extremely sweet and well-received!

I asked mine with cards. They said yes. It worked 🙂

I say go for it. It’s personal and sweet. I made cards for mine and shrunk down pictures of the two of us together and used the pictures to spell out “bridesmaid” or “maid of honor.” There’s so many ways you can customize a card to fit each of the ladies.

I just bought cards to formally ask my girls!  I ordered cards that are pale pink with a little balloon and the balloon is a scratch off. So they must scratch off to be asked! 🙂 I’m going to make little boxes that have things such as nail polish and wine inside as well as the card so they have something nice to keep other than the card. I think the cards are a supercute idea. I just wanted a bit extra to go with it!

That’s what I’m going to do! I think cards are so cute and personal without costing too much for my tiny budget.
