Date twins!

I made a movie for my Maid of Honor. Basically, it was photos of me and her together. And then, at the end, it was me holding up cue cards that said all the things we went through together and then ended with me asking her to go through one more thing with me… and then I asked her to be my maid of honor.

Could you make a big group one for your friends?

I have a candle shop so it came as NO surprise that I made them candles.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I made scrapbooks with pictures of all of us throughout the years, then the last page I had a letter letter asking them to be my bridesmaid

@KaylaJ:  I mean, I’m not at all trying to solicit, but we DO sell these.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I’ve helped another bee with them too!  They’re a lot of fun.

Two of the three girls in my bridal party live in different states, so I’m not doing a big gift. I’m making my bridesmaids and myself out of paper cutouts, then putting the cutouts onto a card. I’m going to put a fun list on the back of examples of things for them to do: Will you make sure my dress looks nice when I say my vows? Will you dance the night away? Will you hold my dress when I pee? Haha, you get the idea. Then finish it off with Will yoube my MOH/bridesmaid? I’m just mailing it.

My idea isn’t super original like the candles, but I’m responding mainly because I was wondering when to send the cards out? You said you’re doing yours in May? I was going to ask mine ASAP so they know a good bit in advance that they’ll need plane tickets, dresses, shoes, etc. to save for. I know for sure my Maid/Matron of Honor doesn’t have a ton of money for a trip from CO to AL, so I want her to have plenty of notice. Is it too early now, or should I wait?

Sorry to hijack your thread!

I sent my girls flowers (they don’t live near me). On the card, I wrote “Hey, you look great holding flowers! Would you be my maid of honour?”

I’m thinking of making cute scrapbook boxes like this, with pictures and notes about our memories together as friends ๐Ÿ™‚

I am making cards for mine, and mailing them… my BMs are spread out all over.

 

We are planning for Sept and I am going to ask them in the next week or two.  I think more notice is better!  Plus it will be nice to feel like something is done.  Smile

I’m an Aug 31, 2013, bride but thought I would comment anyway. 

I plan on getting each girl a starfish necklace, and a nice card. I love the meaning behind a starfish. Each of the girls I will be choosing has made a huge different in my life (or FIs life) and also in everyone else’s lives. They truly are special people. 

My Fiance will be also getting them a card and writing to them about why he wants them there and giving them a gift of some kind. 

As far as all of our other people we will probably just call or send a card asking.

Another September 28, 2013 bride here!

I gave each of my girls a bag with a note that said…

And inside…

Close up!

I thought it was pretty clever, if I do say so myself. And it was my first wedding DIY project!
