Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

I am honored to have so many wonderful friends in my life.  When it came time to ask my besties to be in my bridal party, I knew I wanted to do something a bit more me than calling and popping the question.

First, I wanted to get pretty cards to enclose in the packages.  I found wonderful ones on etsy.
I bought these from Jenuine Paper on Etsy.

I already have my mom collecting vintage hankies for the wedding (which I may monogram with our initials and or the date if I'm feeling super ambitious) for the ceremony.  I am known as a crier, so as a partial nod to that and our vintage style, we're doing a basket for happy tears that our guests can take prior to the ceremony.  I wanted something special for my girls, so I bought hankies that were monogrammed with their initial for each of them.

I bought mini bottles of champagne for the girls as well.

I used navy and white tissue (our wedding colors) with silver star garland and lots of ribbon.  I stamped large gift tags with a new chandelier stamp and wrote the messages on the other side.

All my packages, ready to go to my friends all over the country!  I loved decorating them all with my Lilly stickers and labels.

I can't wait to be surrounded by my amazing friends during all of the wedding preparations and festivities.  Did you ask your friends in any special way? If you've been a bridesmaid or MOH already, what was your favorite part of your special role?


  1. Seriously the cutest packages ever! Love the navy and white colors for your wedding!

    I sent mine a little card that I need to post on my blog sometime soon!

  2. You are so cute. When I get married one day you can come up with creative ways to ask my bridesmaids :)

  3. You are so creative!!!! How sweet are these??

    To answer your question...... I got married at the court house:) Just celebrated my 19th anniversary last week. I want to have "something" on our 20th though. At least a picture, LOL!!

  4. So, so sweet! I love this idea. I actually saw these cards the other day. One of my friends had one on her fridge--not sure if they were exactly alike or not, but very similar. I cannot wait to be the MOH when my sister gets married...if that ever happens. ;)

  5. Ahhh I didn't know you were going to do a post on these! Best way to ask a bestie to be a bridesmaid! Not that I'm partial because I'm one of your bridesmaids or anything...

  6. This is just darling!
    I adore each little detail.

    Love and Hugs,
    Mrs. Kindergarten...aka...Madame Spoiled

  7. This is AMAZING!!! I love the cards!! :) I know they'll all say yes (because I so would)!

  8. Super cute idea!! I'm loving the monogrammed hankies! Congrats doll!
