Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

I’m so excited that I can finally share how I “proposed” to my bridesmaids with you.

Ben and I got engaged in December, set a date in January but I hadn’t asked my bridesmaid to be a part of my wedding until last week. I didn’t mean to put it off for so long, it just took me a while to pull it all together.

My plan was to give each girl a pretty frame with a photo of the two of us and a cute card, a love note almost, asking them to be a bridesmaid.

I scoured Home Goods for simple silver frames. While there were many cute ones of different shapes, sizes and colors, I wanted to give them something simple enough that they’d actually use them and be able to display almost anywhere.

Then I spent a lot of time on Etsy, looking for a great card. I debated between a few but finally settled on one from Wiley Valentine’s shop. This was second ever Etsy purchase and it was a breeze. They created a custom order for me and the cards were in my hands in three days.

Photos were ordered, wrapping paper purchased (from Target) and my little gifts were ready to go. The final product(s):

the cards

the wrapping

the frames

Some were shipped out, some were “proposed” to in person. A few phone calls and hugs later, my bridal party was ready to go. Now, onto absolutely everything else on my the wedding to do list…
