I’d just call her.  I asked my bridesmaids by text haha, I don’t think it’s a big deal 🙂

I asked both of mine by phone — I think it’s completely appropriate, and it’ll help you not stress about it.

Hmmm you could send a card designed for the occasion like this one. There are other cards, too found here.

 

Or a phonecall or text works, too haha. I asked my cousins over fb chat since they live in Australia. Everyone else was assumed to be in the wedding so technically I haven’t even asked the rest.

I asked my Future Sister-In-Law to be in my wedding too. Like you we weren’t close, but I wanted family to be in the wedding (I had another SIL and a cousin in the wedding too). We don’t live close by so we called- and my husband (then fiance) helped me ask her to be part of the wedding. He chatted her up a few minutes to see how her kids were etc, and then said “hey, my fiance has a question for you…” She was very flattered and gracious and it worked out great- until she got pregnant and couldn’t make the wedding (I hate it when that happens…) But that’s another story. Tongue Out

@anonybee726:  I totally understand! My Future Sister-In-Law and I get along very well, but we’re both shy and I wouldn’t say we’re super close. That said, i knew I wanted her in my wedding so I could try to build up that relationship. I made her a card on http://www.zazzle.com/ – I can’t find it but it was a pic of a bride and a bridesmaid, and it was blank on the inside, so I put this poem:

The day that I marry, our families will blend,
you’ll be my sister and also my friend.
It’d be so very special if you will be,
a part of this day, a bridesmaid for me.
It’s just the beginning, of our brand new life,
as your brother and I, become man and wife.

 

 

 

I don’t think I could’ve said it better myself, and she really liked it, if that helps =)

Asking by phone will not be that bad. I always liked the whole package with card idea to ask a bridesmaid… but if you are honestly that broke…then ask by phone. She might like talking to you too!!!

I got these at hallmark and thought they were adorable! I tend to be kind shy so for me a card was the easist way. I asked my two best friends ( whom i would of been comfortable doing without a card) and my future hubbys 2 sisters( one whom im becoming good friends with, were closer in age, and his lil sister)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PS- The first pic is the inside of the card, and the last is the front. whoops
