Greetings all–I’m in search of a funny poem, or saying to put together a funny bridesmaid survival kit–I am recently engaged, and all of my bridesmaids are scattered!! I want to send them something to ask them to be my bridesmaids, so along with the serious, nice things (ie: bottle of wine, and long mushy letter), I also want to send something funny and cute. The only things I’ve been able to find are day of survival kits with deoderant, aspirin, etc…in them and that’s not really what I’m looking for…more along the lines of things to help them survive the wedding planning stages, dress shopping, meeting each other, etc. EEK–I hope I’m not that bad!

Well you could make your own.
IE get an assortment of those small one shot alcohol bottles and attach labels
For when I switch my color pallette for the 10th time
For when I make you wear a dress that you wont wear again, but I swear you will
For when I call for the 100th time telling you my mom is driving me nuts
Or earplugs, fake mustache, bath oils
(for when I talk your ear off, to hid the scowl over the dress I chose, to relax with after I call you 100 times)

Lol @ liquor for specific situations! I really like the idea of putting together your own. You could also include a little book with bios/photos/memories of each of your bridesmaids so they can get excited about meeting each other.

@Beluga: I wish I thought of it a few months ago 🙂

Oh, I LOVE the liquor idea–I’m going to start brainstorming right away =) I def. plan on making my own (in case I didn’t say that already)…I’ve already boarded the DIY train–and don’t plan on ever getting off!!

You could maybe make or buy little “voodoo dolls” (stuffed cloth people-shaped figures, don’t have to be fancy) and put little veils on them, and include a pack of pins? – for them to use when they’ve had it up to here with you
You can put some Jelly Belly’s in a bag or old pill bottle & say “Anti-Bridezilla Tablets – take with alcohol.
Here’ s a link to a discussion that might have some ideas for you:
