(Closed) Have you heard of “Meet the Maids” ? It’s a great idea, but I need some help…

  • poll: What to include for each girl

    A simple biography

    How we met, a short story about an experience we had and what they are doing NOW

    How we met, what they mean to us, what they are doing now

    All of the above

    Other Suggestion (please explain)

    I’d never heard of this, at least not at the wedding (I’ve seen it on wedding websites) but I think it’s great, especially if you have a spot at the reception in mind for it.

    P.S. I looked at the link you gave and thought her husband’s version of “meet the guys” was cute, too (he introduced them like you would introduce football players). Perhaps something like that would spark your FI’s interest?

    I went to a wedding a few years back that did that and I thought it was a good idea. I have seen wedding websites do similar things.

    Bump!

    Im in the process of working on this now, obviously just the beginning stages.  I think I’ll use powerpoint since I dont have photoshop.  Anyone have suggestions or has anyone done this? 

    I was thinking maybe using 4×6 or 5×7 frames so not everyone is squinting to read.  But I need advice as to writing just a small biography about them or writing a story about how we met (or some other memorable experience)

    Any ideas ladies?

    I love this!!! The framed piece could also serve as part of a Bridesmaid or Best Man gift.

    This is adorable – just a thought – what about doing them from hanging ribbons? I can’t for the life of me remember the bee that had ribbons holding up pictures at her wedding (but it was fairly recent in recaps) and you could do one strand per maid/man. I think that’d be so super cute! Just have one “picture” be the writing. Just another spin on this. 🙂

    @CharlotteMJ: What a great idea, I didn’t think about that!    I’m not sure if I should just do a short bio or a story.  I think a bio would be easier on me.

    @AmeliaBedelia: I thought about that but where and how would I hang them?  Not sure my venue would allow for me to hang on their walls.

    Precious!! We have ours on our wedding website, but I love the idea of them being framed and displayed!

    I am doing something like this, too! I love this idea! I am going to introduct a quick bio of each girl and how we met. I am also going to add an inside joke into the story that only the two of us will know. I’m working on my pictures and will post once i’m finished.
