Ive seen people make cute cards or send a little gift bag or something that is kind of crafted around a wedding. Maybe you could make a little bridesmaid survival kit (like bobby pins, lip gloss, tissues, shout wipes, etc) and then give it to them and say “You will need this because I am hoping that youll be my bridesmaid”!!

I got my girls cute little cards from a local card shop (below), along with sweet little notebooks (bridesmaids need to be organized!)  I wrote that I wouldn’t make them wear a dress like the one on the card as long as they said yes.  And then I wrote a personal note to each about why I couldn’t be up there without them.  Good mix of smiles and schmaltz.

I gave it in person to the local bridesmaids all together and mailed a little package out to my west coast girl.

I made cards for each girl. It was really fun to make them to suit each person.

I work at a flower shop and a bride just came in and send a little bouquet of her wedding flowers and a card to all the girls. I thought that was a cute idea. What girl doesn’t like flowers???

@DCech: I am getting to ask my own bridal party, and I am thinking of sending a special card along with an edible cookie of the dress that also has the question attached to it. I might find a bridesmaid poem to go along with it, and maybe a picture of us together…

I would’ve done something more elaborate, boquet of flowers, a rose, a bedazzled shirt, or a bridesmaid book, etc…..but I am a bit shy and nervous about asking them. So I am keeping it more simple.

I created a card for each one of my BMs on Zazzle.com and on the inside I included this poem:
Top 10 Reasons to be My Bridesmaid

10. You look great in (color of bridesmaids’ dress).
9. Someone has to help me go to the bathroom in a ballgown.
8. I know you will plan a great bachelorette party.
7. I will give you a great bridesmaids gift.
6. I want the people at my wedding to see how beautiful my friends are.
5. These wedding favors won’t make themselves.
4. You get to have the best seat in the house at the ceremony.
3. I need someone to pretend to want to catch the bouquet.
2. My fiance asked for some hot girls to be in the wedding party.

And the number one reason you should be my bridesmaid is…because you are one of my best friends and I love you!


This is what they looked like outside ( I LOVE Photoshop!):

The Girls LOVED them ๐Ÿ˜€
