I am not sure how to ask my friends to be my maids. The one idea i had, my Fiance said was silly adn that my friends wont watch the entire thing. My idea was to take the godzilla video, make them listen to it, and at the end, I photoshopped a picture of my head on godzilla in a dress and my maids heads on little bathroom women signs with yellow dresses (the color of my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses). I also photoshopped a picture of my Fiance head on a bathroom man with a tux, and i did the same for the groomsmen except i just censored out the head.
This was so much easier for my FI! his best man told one of the groomsmen and the other two are family.
(My Maid/Matron of Honor knows she is my Maid/Matron of Honor. she actually helped me pick out my dress!)
What should I do?

I’m probably not alot of help to you… I just asked them straight up haha… I think its a special enough thing to ask that it doesn’t have to be all flashy. But in the same way that every proposal is different, so are friendships, so it must be different for everyone. Why can’t you just ask them?

I made mine a cute personalized card on zazzle with a poem inside and mailed it to them. I would have taken them out to lunch and given it to them, but several are out of town. I definitely think there are some great ideas out there. Check out etsy for ideas. I’m glad I didn’t just ask mine.

I think you could make them a card or give them a present or something? Check out the bridesmaid subforum here – there are a lot of ideas on asking bridesmaids. I think your idea sounds alright, but a little cumbersome, plus, like your fiance said, they may not even watch the whole thing!
Failing a fancy way of asking them, you could just ask them outright. One of my bridesmaids was asked via text (though technically he asked me), another was over the phone, my sister just ‘knew’ she would be a bridesmaid, and I asked the SIL when she came over for coffee. It doesn’t need to be special for them to be special people.
