Since valentines day is right around the corner, i pretty much made them valentines..well huge valentines lol. I actually had red poster board and made a 16 inch heart. I bought lace trim and hot glue gunned it atrend the edges of the heart, then I printed out a poem in really pretty cursive writing and in pink letters and put that in the center of the heart then I decorated all around it with little crystals and on the back in glitter I wrote will you be my bridesmaid. They took about 3 hours each to make…lol and they were beautiful they made the girls cry :). For my maid of honor(sister) I made a package of a maid of honor crystal make up bag, maid of honor crystal appliqué to put on a shirt, her favorite candy lol and a pink diamond compact mirror and I threw in a couple pink roses and when she opened it all the gifts were covered with tissue paper and there was a card that I just wrote will you be my maid of honor? I spent $5 on the hearts and like $12 on the maid of honor package!

@jaim1104:  I found lots of cute ideas on Pinterest too! My idea was a combination of several ideas I saw, which it’s not the best idea, but I’m on a budget so I went with it. I made a collage at the Wal-Mart photo center for each girl with pics of her and me to remind them of all the good times we’ve had together, and I framed it. Then I printed out homemade cards on cardstock that I folded in half, on the front it said “A special request…” Then the inside said “Will you be my bridesmaid?” and I wrote each of them a special note letting them know why I would like them to be in my wedding. I wrapped both items in tissue paper and put them in a small white box, and made it look like a present with orange ribbon and a pink bow (my wedding colors). Each girl got a box with her name on it in cute letter stickers. I waited til about midnight one night and I went to each girl’s house and put their box at their doorstep so they would see it the next morning first thing. I got texts/calls as soon as they opened their boxes and they all said yes! Even though it was kind of cheesy I got a lot of compliments. Laughing

 @Kafrine:  I love your idea! Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

I called them and asked them over the phone (all of them live in different states than I) 🙂 . I didn’t know about all the cool ideas out there for that.  I sometimes feel bad I didn’t do anything fancy but I did it the old fashion way…. plus they’r getting spoiled on the wedding day

I also asked via phone/text. 4 out of 6 just knew they would be anyway.

I sent a box with a ring pop, the “Will you be my bridesmaid” lengthy poem thing I found on pinterest (typed onto a card with ring stickers), and a travel size bottle of vodka with the note “you’re gonna need this”

I made them little boxes with information about the wedding (the lid said “Will you be my bridesmaid?”)

@alaskin17:  Me too! I didn’t realize I was supposed to do something cute/fancy… I just asked them over the phone! lol. Ah well I will definitely make sure to spoil them on the wedding day as well!

to the OP sorry I don’t have anything to suggest 😛 but it seems like the other gals above had some really good ideas~

My bridesmaids actually loved the way I asked them. I got little favor boxes and put a ring pop in it. Then I made them each a card in my wedding color and wrote them a letter about why I would want them to be in my wedding. I then ended each one a little differently with a quote about bridesmaids. 

Some different ones I used were I couldn’t say I do without you, Now it’s my turn to pop the questions, I got the guy but I still need my girls. After making all of these and writing all their letters I took them all out to dinner to ask them! They all said yes and LOVED the ring pops. I really loved how I asked them!
