I just got engaged this weekend!! My fiance and I are taking it easy for a little while before jumping into wedding planning, but I would like to ask my friends to be my bridesmaids sooner than later. I’m not as creative as I’d like to be so I need some help in figuring out cute ways to ask them. I have thought of getting together for breakfast or lunch as we usually do and putting a cupcake with a cute tag/label that asks them. Orrr…maybe doing a paper chain of bridesmaid dolls adorned in magazine page dresses along with a card asking them (this way they get to see who the other bridesmaids are). Other than that, I have nothing.

I voted cupcakes. I think that sounds cute. But I’m also really hungry at the moment, so my opinion may be biased 😛

I had a local bakery/cafe make cupcakes that said “Will you be my MOH?” and “Will you be my b-maid?”. They were delish and the girls really appreciated the creativity. I’m posting this on my iPhone but I’ll post a pic of the cupcakes when I get home.

A friend of mine made us a card and when we opened it , it was a chain of wedding dresses with “will you be in my wedding”? It was really crafty and cute. I am making my flower girl and ring bearer a build a bear of a bride and groom and giving it to them with a card!

I used the chain of a bride and a bridesmaid to ask my bridesmaids with a poem and they loved it 🙂

I proposed to all of them. I bought plastic engagement rings and ring boxes from the craft store and I put will you be my bridesmaids on the inside. So when they opened it they saw the question and the ring. I also sent it with a card with a little poem on it. I mailed it to all of them and they absolutely loved it!

Although I haven’t quite finished the project, my plan is to ask my bridesmaids with bottles of wine since we are getting married at a winery. I’m taking bottles of wine from the winery we will be married at and taking off the back label. I’m going to write a short letter to each of them on a new back label with the last line being “Will you be my BM?” and affix it to the bottle. I’ll be hand delivering each bottle and my plan is to share the bottle of wine with them at some point in time before the wedding. That way I know we’ll be sharing some one on one time together before the wedding while enjoying the yummy wine and they will have a personalized keepsake of the occasion.
