I got some cupcake boxes at a craft store. I filled them with that string paper and a bow on top. Then I got them cute cards. We were having a girls night out and I brought the gifts. Here is a pics for my BM with there ring pops on! you can see the box in the background on the table.
My MOH (my sis): I wrote her a long letter about how I've always admired her & looked up to her. I wanted her to wear a gold dress, so I bought a little yellow baby dress and told her that's the closest thing I could find so far...but keep the dress because I might need it in a couple of years.
I took one BM out to dinner and wrote her a beautiful note in a card asking her if she minded sharing her birthday with me for the rest of our lives.
My OOT BM: I sent a 30 piece puzzle with our pictures on it and a message asking her to be my BM.
For my last BM: we were out to dinner with a group of friends because we had all just relocated to a new city. I wanted to toast to new beginnings, and I asked her to celebrate one more new beginning with me and my FH.
This was one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning!!! ;-)
I was a lame-o and didn't actually know you were supposed to ask them? I'd always talked about my sisters and my best friend being my bridesmaids so I just figured they knew - like I wouldn't ask my mom to be mother of the bride... One sister and my friend knew and it wasn't a problem. But I guess the other sister called my mom and was upset because she thought I didn't want her in my bridal party because I hadn't asked. So I just called and was like "oh, yeah of course you're a bridesmaid. Sorry, I thought you knew."
But now that I've seen these cute ways to ask on here and Pinterest I'm sad I didn't do something better. I'll just have to get them awesome bridesmaids gifts for the wedding
So cute! I haven't asked mine yet, but I made these little books. The main part of it has a word search filled with all wedding words, and once you find them all, what's left says, "Will you be my bridesmaid?" It took multiple tries and a lot of time to do that lol. I then wrote them each a nice message and included some pictures. It took a really long time lol.
That is so awesome!! Just like Sarah I didn't know you were supposed to ask them. Recently engaged Christmas of 2012 but very close with my FH family. We have been together for 4 years this august and we have a baby girl that is 2 so there has always been talk with the family about who was gonna do what at our wedding.
Now that I know I will definitely think about some cute way to officially ask them.
Sarah you are not a lame O or maybe we both are.... All three of mine I was like you know you are a BM right? They all were very excited lol. I didn't do anything else though would love to be some of you guys BM
That's so cute! I made little kits for my girls with makeup bags from Michaels filled with nail file, compact mirror, chapstick, tissues, heart shaped lollipop, and a planner with the date marked on it with a handmade card personalized for each girl. My flowergirl, who is 7 months old, got a tutu, a pink onesie, cute headbands, and a ziploc of fake petals as a joke for practice.
