    I made custom gift boxes (cardboard and decoupage) and jewelry for each girl (my BMs have very different tastes), then I wrote them a little poem.  As part of their gift for being in the wedding, I made them earrings to match the necklaces that I used to ask them.

    I got mini bottles of champagne & ring pops.  I got some cute cards custom done about it being the Bride’s turn to ‘pop the question’.


    It was really cute & not too fancy, my girls seemed to really love it.

    @shorebride105:  So I was all about doing it a cutesy way but when push came to shove, I had shit to do that didn’t include me being cute and sassy and on trend. I just called them up and asked. Don’t get me wrong, I will treat them at some point but I’m not a DIY’er and I didn’t want to go to great lengths to ask a simple question.

    I would just focus on doing something that is reflective of you and your friendships.  Don’t do something cutesy just for the hell of it.  Maybe make each one a card, that way it’s special and from you.

    Honesly, I either text messaged or called my girls to ask.  Nothing big or special.  I did make a card for my Maid/Matron of Honor, but it was more just supposed to be silly.  So do what feels right!  I’m sure your girls will love it no matter what.  

    @LilRhodyGem:  +1!

    I bought these cards from etsy, and gave each of the bridesmaids tanks that had rhinestones “bridesmaid” on them, for the Maid/Matron of Honor i did the same but added a picture frame wtih a photo of us, and for the flower girls I got them flower girl barbie dolls and flowers.  It went over really well 🙂

    @MexiPino:  Sure. I got the oval boxes from Michaels and painted them a cream color and then glittered the whole box. I got a mini frame and embossed each girls monogram and then placed that on top of the box.


    I included pictures of dress ideas I liked. They are able to pick out their own dresses so I wanted to provide ideas.



    I provided them with colors of dresses for ideas. I got paint swatches them cut them out into a pretty shape and backed them with a glitter back and glued a ribbon onto the back making it into an accordian fold.



    Here are the cards inside. Dress ideas, their roles, who my girls are, and details about the wedding. Here are up close views.




    And I glittered mini champagne splits and made my own label that said Will you be my bridesmaid.

    @shorebride105:  Just want to say that I think anything you choose will be fine – I’m a lazy bride and just contacted them!

    I asked 4 in person (no exciting build up – I might have led in with a bit of wedding talk and then just asked “So… erm.. I was hoping to have you as one of my bridesmaids…?” immediately followed with “No pressure if you can’t or just want to come for the party!”) and I asked one over Facebook as she was interstate and we were both in classes when I asked her!
