asking your bridesmaids | diy bridesmaid box
Asking your bridesmaids to stand by your side on your wedding day is one of the most exciting steps after getting engaged. Here is a cute and easy way to make your girls feel special, and eager to help with the planning process.
Find a cute small crate, and cover the bottom in kraft crinkle cut paper for filler. I’ve added a succulent arrangement, a lavender scented candle for relaxation and a citrus lotion for energy, as well as my “Bridesmaid? (But Not Really A “Maid”)” cards which say — I want you there, and I promise not to ask too much of you! — and blush envelopes.
It’s a practical way to ask, with things your bests can actually use (vs. a mug, etc. that says “bridesmaid” on it…those gifts really do operate on a short timeline).
