Here is how I asked my girls to be my bridesmaids. They all kind of knew, in fact, my sister said, “I better be your Maid of Honor!” So, I made these little gifts to make it a bit more special.
First I gave them their gifts inside of a small reusable tote (perfect size for taking your lunch to work). This was $1.50 (rather than .75 to $3 a piece for a gift bag). I like that it was reusable since I tend to try and be green and that it made each gift a little different and not too matchy-matchy.
Inside of the bag with a handmade name tag were a few different things:
1) Bridesmaids movie DVD (starring Kristin Wiig and Maya Rudolph) – photoshopped cover with our heads (me and my bridesmaids – DVDS from Amazon, photoshopped by me).
2) Tissues with each girls monograms (purchased from Michael’s)
3) Tissue paper filled with a few chocolates tied with ribbon
4) Handmade card for each bridesmaid asking them to be my bridesmaid (found card wording online and changed it to fit my girls, card made by me in wedding colors).
