This may be prohibitively expensive for you, but if I explain it adequately, it could be a fun idea. If I were you I would assemble a couple of items-any or all of the ones mentioned above, and instead of the traditional “Will you be my bridesmaid” card have a list that says “Things to do before the Big Day”. Then, on each item, attach a post-it with a clever reference to the list. The ring pop could say “a ring that means forever”, the book could say “a bit of light reading”, the movie, “reference material” or something wittier than my brain can conjure. Finally, I would put a small framed photo of you and your Bridesmaid or Best Man with a note that says “…and someone to stand beside me. Will you be my BM?”

I think this could be a SUPER fun and clever idea-especially if you wrap each gift individually within the package. Just a thought.

I’d be careful about the book. It might rub someone the wrong way.  Depending on what kind of person the bride was and my relationship with her (obviously good if she’s asking me to be a BM) I might see it as being awesome and thoughtful or I might see it as being pretentious and pushy: like she doesn’t think I could be a good enough Bridesmaid or Best Man w/o the aid of the book.

That’s my only concern. Otherwise I think it’s a great idea! Especially the planners, that’s so cute! As for what else to include…I’m at a loss. Could you print out some ideas you have for dresses to include? Maybe ask them to thumb up-thumb down their choices?
