One of the first things I wanted to do after getting engaged was ask my closest friends to be in our wedding. As I started to think about who I'd select to stand by my side as I marry my wonderful husband-to-be, a number of friends immediately came to mind. I freaked out for about one second when I counted the number in my head (8 to be exact) but I immediately relaxed when I reminded myself that not one of them could be eliminated. They have all played a major part in my life, both personally and professionally, and I just knew that I had my girls.
The next step was figuring out how to ask them. Should I call? Should I send a hand-written note? Should I wait until I see each of them in person? No, no, no. Do you want to know what I ended up doing???
I headed over to EMTsweeetieWeddings on Etsy and had her make me some "will you be my bridesmaid?' cards. I've mentioned before that I love cards and that I still have every card I have ever received (seriously) so this was the perfect choice for me. Check them out!
Our wedding colors are Navy, Ivory, and Blush and Judith customized the cards for me. I think they came out great! I was so excited to mail them out and even more excited when I got a call from each of my girls saying "YES, I would love to be your bridesmaid!" Very fun!
How did you select your bridal party and how did you ask your girls to be in you wedding?
