I’d pass around a garter or maybe pin something on the inside of each dress/on each bouquet. The bees pass around those bee charms and everyone finds a way to attach it to their attire that day.

My brothers and I have line danced together at all the family weddings =)  Have you considered a choreographed group dance to some hilarious song?

I think it would be cool if all of you had a token of some sort and when you get married, you place it into a shadow box with their names under it. SO when you all get married, the box will be full 🙂

@Heartly:  in my mind I see like vintage keys… so… even when you get married, you are still locked together as sisters 🙂 PERMINANTLY (sp?) LOL

I remember one forum member has a handkercheif that has all of the girls’ initials on it that they wrap around their bouquets. After a wedding, the date is embroidered under their initials.

@LuckyClover:  Haha, I was going to mention that!

What about all signing the brides shoe in blue marker for her something blue and well wishes?

What about gifting a charm bracelet to the bride.  Each girl could choose a symbol representative to their individual friendships, or you could pick each pick a heart to give away.  You could combine this with a ribbon pull activity, so that at each wedding each of you also gains a charm to remind you of the memories of the day.  So the bride would collect a large number of charms on her wedding day, but the bracelets would be started together so that in the long run you each have a momento of your friendships and your life.   Another concept could be to create a signature quilt.  Since the wedding is soon it’s probably too late to have you each make a quilt square, but it might be possible to find a handmade quilt in the bride’s wedding or favorite house colors that you can each sign or draw a memory on to it.

We’re planning on doing a bridal mendhi session together, my Mom, sister, Bridesmaid or Best Man (and her Mom) andany of my FSILs who want to join in; a few days before the wedding. The plan is to hire an amazing artist and have our feet & ankles done, andspent the day together talking, eating and making memories.
