    Text. I was going to do something fancy for all of them, but after the first one rejected it--my bff at the time. I decided to not make the asking that big of a deal.

    I just called Smiley smile We talked for a long time and I asked them. They were all super happy. It doesn't have to be a big deal, just make sure they know why you are asking them and make sure you give them the option to say no

    I waited until I saw them in person, and then I just asked. If that hadn't been an option for anyone, I would have just called.

    Some people will just call, some people who can afford an extra expense will do something like a card & small gift, bottle of wine or something like that. If someone could afford it I think its a super cute idea and its something they can always keep or frame.

    I sent my sister a card. I didn't want to put her on the spot. She was my MOH at my first wedding too and I didn't want her to feel like she HAD to do it all over again.

    I told my kids they were in it (junior bridesmaids).

    FH called or talked to his guys in person.

    Three of mine already knew they would be in it, since we talked about it before he proposed. But one doesn't, and I'm planning on printing out a "will you be my bridesmaid" card for her.

    I made these note cards and the necklaces. Put charms with something that resembled them. Then I stuck in a hand written note. Most of them cried haha. I like things to be very personal when it comes to big things like this. Smiley smile

    I haven't asked yet because our date is kinda iffy and a little bit of drama going on about some specifics but I have bought little wishbone necklaces for my girls and have attached a card that reads, "I WISH you would be my bridesmaid!". It may be cheesy but I thought it was super different and soemthing cute. Smiley smile

    I'm really close with all 3 of my BM; we talk/text almost everyday; so I didnt even have to ask. Just told them and they already knew. As for my MOH I asked her in person but she already knew as well. So, i did nothing fancy lol.

    I waited until i was with each of them in person and asked. I let them know if they needed some time I understand. They all said yes right away except one who was just worried about money issues because her BF is FHs brother and best man and theyir daughter i also asked to be the FG.
