As most girls on pinterest, I had a board for my future wedding. Once my fiance proposed, I knew immediately that I wanted to make a box to ask my girls to be in my wedding.
I had three boxes that said “will you be my bridesmaid”, one that said “will you be my maid of honor” & another that said “will you be my matron of honor”.
I found the cigar boxes at Joann’s. If I had more time, I would have stained the oustide of them but I still think they turned out well. I put the wood letters from Hobby Lobby for their names, and then painted them silver. I also painted the entire box inside silver. I used the ribbon on the outside of my wedding colour.
I personalized the inside of the box a little for each girl. I put a picture of my bridesmaid and myself together inside of the box, along with a small bottle of win or vodka, a candy bar, a swatch of my wedding color, along with a bottle of nail polish that was close to my wedding color.
They loved them, and I had a blast making them!

Those are really cute! I think I’m a bad bride — I’m just asking mine the normal way.

@cmbr: Don’t feel bad, I always think these ideas are cute but would be a waste of time, my girls all knew what their roles would be before me asking. They were just waiting on Fiance to propose.

It looks like you’ve put in a lot of time into these boxes, they are very beautiful.
I never even knew about doing this until after I called up some girls and already asked them!
Eh, everyone has their own way, but gotta say you asked in style. <3

I had fun making them! I knew I wanted to do something creative! I am all about DIY for my wedding – well to an extent.

I’ve seen this concept before, but your boxes are the cutest I’ve seen! Is it okay if I pin one of your pictures from here for my own pinterest board?
