How I Asked My Bridesmaids

Getting to ask our wedding party to actually be our wedding party was such a fun part of this process for me! I spent a lot of time googling and thinking about how i wanted to ask them.

When it came down to it, my inspiration came from a bit of online shopping! When i was browsing a store online i came across these dainty, sweet little bracelets that were in the shape of knots. The symbolism was perfect and i decided to make the purchase! One for each of our moms and one for each bridesmaid. The “asking the brides maids” theme ended up being “will you help me tie the knot?”

For each bridesmaid i wrote a personal letter, which for obvious reasons, i’ll keep private. I just talked a bit about our friendship and why i’m so proud to have them in my wedding party. I also wrote a longer letter and gave a copy of that to everyone. In the longer letter I outlined things like the planning process and the fun things coming up (bachelorette party – whoop!)

Lastly I made a little cover page for each of the girls. It was a simple sign actually asking them the “big” question!

will you help me tie the knot-

 

 


After everyone in the Bridal party had agreed to be a part of it i got to make a Facebook group for us, which is so fun to me! I love to have a place where we can all post our ideas and communicate with each other all at once. I even made a cute little header for the group, posted below!

After all is said and done, I’m so happy with how my “bridesmaids proposal” turned out, and I’m so excited to have these amazing girls in my wedding party. My sister Laura, Ryan’s sisters Shannon and Danah and my girlfriends Danielle, Kris and Kristin are going to be amazing bridesmaids and i cant wait to really get into the wedding festivities!

Valentines day is the time of year for love, and though Kris and I have lots of love for our significant others, I think it’s important to remember that your girlfriends hold a part of your heart as well!

This year we decided to throw a Galentine’s Day brunch party, to show a few of the women in our lives how much we love and appreciate them! Together, with our awesome friend Corri, we DIY decorated and baked up a storm in anticipation of a fun, girly afternoon.

Though not all of our girlfriends could make it – some live (way too) far away – we ended up having such a fun time! It reminded me that when you make a point, and take a day to love your friends it really makes for great memories and warm, fuzzy feelings.

We made a few purse bingo boards as a game, so please go a head and use the free download to get a copy of those! They’d also be excellent for a bridal shower, or similar event!
