I think you’ve done enough! Stop reading bridal magazines that tell you you need to do all these crazy things!

Don’t stress youself out trying to live up to the magazines that tell you to spend crap tons of money on DIY projects.

All I am saying is dont waste all your ideas for asking her to be your Bridesmaid or Best Man, your going to want some of these ideas for presents for the wedding day.

@soontobemrsaustralia:  I have to agree with the previous posters.  You clearly are a very very generous friend, and I’m sure you just want to make it nice for your friends. But, I really don’t  think it’s necessary. 

I know some people do the “Will you be my bridemaid” cards or little boxes but I think you really need to stop at the bag and the file folder.  The pencil case, and cluth idea sounds more like a wedding thank you gift.  If you really want to include more, what about a few pics from fun memories you have together?  Or a fun poem or little note about why they are important to you. Trust me….the bills will start rolling in big time as you get closer to the date!

I would rather have a card and maybe go to lunch…so much more personal.

I definitely agree. Save ideas and money for other things! I’ll be honest. When i asked my friends, I said “would you like to be in my wedding?” that was that. I don’t  have a lot of money and they know I don’t and they don’t either. Bridal magazines think money is no object and get you to spend all this money on things you don’t need and no one expects you to have. I think this is where people get stressed out by doing what they think is expected rather than what they want.

That sounds so adorable!!

But for my Maid/Matron of Honor I called her, told her he proposed, and said “Oh yeah, your my Maid/Matron of Honor right?” ๐Ÿ™‚ She doesn’t expect anything from me, I already asked her to be the main person by my side for the biggest day of my life!

For my other Bridesmaid or Best Man, also my Future Sister-In-Law, I’m just going to ask her if she’ll share the day with me, I don’t want to make a production of something thats so deeply personal to me ๐Ÿ™‚

She’ll love what you’ve done already!

I just sent my bridesmaids an email. Which i guess was super-impersonal, but they all said yes anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t do “will you be my bm” gifts. I just asked them. I have to agree with pp’s save the gift buying for thank you gifts and save your money for extra expenses.
