Last week we talked about who to choose as your maid of honor, because we believe that female friendships are so important! This week, we thought it would be fun to focus on the how. Part of the wedding journey is making memories along the way, not only with your fiance but with your girlfriends as well! That’s why we’re talking about how to ask your bridesmaids to be your bridesmaids!
Ask Your Bridesmaids at Brunch
Brunch is always a good idea! Take a group of a friends out on the town for mimosas and a celebration. They might be able to guess why you’re going out which will just make it more fun! Get everyone together and do a group outing! Or plan personal events with each of your girls so that you can have a good chat about your friendship and of course, your wedding!
Put Together A Bridesmaid Box
These have really been gaining popularity on Pinterest and we can see why! Essentially, it’s a box of little gifts and a card that says something clever, like “I can’t say I do without you!” They are adorable and a great way to make asking your bridesmaids a little bit more special.
Some great things to put in a bridesmaid box include a nail polish or lipstick for your girls to wear for the bridal shower or bachelorette party. You can also get a mini bottle of champagne or sparkling wine to keep the celebration going.
We love the idea of a personalized photo of the two of you from your friendship. This is the perfect time to pull out the embarrassing throwbacks, because you’ll have plenty of cute selfies together from the wedding parties!
Send A Heartfelt Card
Maybe your girls are long distance, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t send them your love! There is something so special about getting “real” snail mail. A handwritten note about how much they mean to you and how special it will be to have them with you at the top of the aisle will brighten their day wherever they are.
It might be tempting to text and spoil the surprise, but it will be worth it. We promise!
