Congratulations!  Well, even though I had mentioned to each of my bridesmaids that I would  be asking them, I also mailed each of them an "official" invitation to be a bridesmaid. I included links to some articles on The Knot in the invite and a copy of a FAQ sheet on being a bridesmaid (and maid of honor) that I found on The Knot.  They really liked the little package I sent them because it not only was a nice way to officially ask, but it put what they would be doing in perspective.  It was first time I had ever mailed out an "invite" of any sort and got responses from everyone the day it was received!  By the time I asked them I already knew the colors I wanted, so I made the invites in my wedding colors as well. I used the designhergals.com website to create an avatar of each of my girlfriends and printed them out on my own computer — so each invite was personalized.  I don’t have an example of the invite I sent them, but the spa day invites I made them used a similar method — you can see them here http://calioc.blogspot.com/2008/06/its-all-about-bms.html

Good luck!

  I waited until I had a date to ask them all formally, but you could ask them with just a general idea can you try and keep this time open for the wedding. Did you pick a place yet ?
