Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

April 29, 2010

Ah, this is the quintessential question that almost always follows the other one (you know – the first one he asked to get you in this whole engaged predicament :)) Some brides spend many weeks considering those special people who will make up their bridal party, and some brides have it all figured out within minutes of being engaged. 

Traditionally, the question would be asked via a special meeting or phone call, or maybe even through a handwritten letter.

Nowadays, there’s endless, more creative, ways to ask someone to be in your wedding party.  I’ll highlight just a few of them here.

How about asking your maids by giving them a pretty card?

Another option is writing the question on a yummy cookie (what girl wouldn’t like that?). 

I actually used the card method to ask my bridal party, plus I added a dress-shaped cookie monogrammed with their first inital:

I also love the idea of sending a puzzle to your soon-to-be bridesmaids in the mail.  One option would be a jigsaw style puzzle, like so:

Or, alternatively, you can send your girls a crossword-style puzzle.  This post on Project Wedding has an adorable DIY tutorial.

Whatever way you choose to ask, ensure that you’re certain of your decision.   Remember, your choices can determine whether your bridesmaids ease your stress – or just add to it. 

I’m sure your girls will be ecstatic with being such an important part of your special day!
