- Wedding: June 2014
I was inspired by all the funky ways brides have asked people to be in their bridal parties. I’ve been collecting things for a few weeks & finally had everything together this week. Both my ladies (my sis for Maid/Matron of Honor and my 18yo stepdaughter for BM) were aware that I wanted them, but I still wanted to give them a special treat.
First – a bridesmaid guide. My sis gave me an (ancient!) copy of a ‘how to be a bridesmaid’ book a few yrs ago. It’s got etiquette guides, tips for planning & general wedding expectations.
Got each of them a little bottle of their favourite tipple (note – in Australia, the legal drinking age is 18, not 21)
Some cheeky hens night props – badge, penis straw & ring pop
Finally, a little card. The front is a tragic 80s bridal party & the caption reads “this could be you! Will you be my MOH/BM?” and the back has a pic with contact details of the other Bridesmaid or Best Man.
The goodies all packed up
And all tied up (the books are wrapped in blue underneath)
