Wedding Wednesday - The Bridesmaids!

Before John and I ever got engaged, I knew who my bridesmaids would be. I have a younger sister, he has 2 younger sisters...it's an easy decision! 

My sister knew she would be my maid of honor. I mean, duh!

John's sisters (as far as I know) had no idea I was going to ask them so I wanted to do something clever to ask all of them to officially be my bridesmaids. 

I couldn't find any cards that I liked on Etsy (shocking, I know!) so I called on my friend Ashlee to help me design something. 

I found this cute little saying for a destination wedding somewhere on the interwebs and passed it along to her to work her magic. 


She personalized this for all 3 girls :)

Then I had to figure out what I wanted to do with it once I printed it...

I ended up finding some cute bright colored note cards at Target and glued the printed image to the inside of it, wrote a personalized message to each girl on the top and wrote their name on the outside. 





I addressed them all and dropped them in the mail and sent them all on their way to College Station, Austin and Lubbock. 

A few days later I officially had 3 very excited bridesmaids! 





I am so excited to have our sisters up there with us on our big day! 


I also (with the help of my sister) picked the bridesmaid dresses!




They are from Alfred Angelo and I just am in love with the halter top and the color! I think it's perfect for a beach wedding!! 



Have you been asked to be a bridesmaid in a cute way? 
Or did you do something unique to ask your bridesmaids?

I am in love with that dress, and the invaitations, and the cute envelopes, and basically everything else in this post. I can't wait to see your pictures!

Sarah said...

So cute! I love the little poem! Glad you have all your girls!

I did the same type thing. I wrote them all little notes asking them to be my bridesmaids.

Since our weddings are the same week, I'm so excited that we get to pretty much be on the same planning schedule! I love seeing the details of yours! Hopefully our 11 months will fly by! I know we both can't wait to be married! :)

Those came out fantastic- I love that dress too, so light & fun!

Megan said...

so cute and I love all of their responses!

Lauren said...

Those dresses are perfect for a beach wedding - I love the color!

When I asked my girls, I went around town to local spots, holding a sign asking them to be a bridesmaid, and then took a picture, framed it, and gave it to them. In most of them I'm jumping off of something like a total geek! Oh well, it got some good laughs!

Christina said...

Jennifer said...

Savannah said...

So, even though I'm married I love these Wedding Wednesday posts!! What a cute way to ask :) I wasn't as creative...

Kindra said...

I wanted to do something cute but I couldnt wait, I was too excited so I asked them over the phone. Thinking of sending them something official through the mail :)

Leslie said...

That is a very clever way to ask your sisters and future SIL to be bridesmaids. I've been a b-maid in about 7-8 different weddings and I don't recall ever being asked in such a cute manner! Loved your cards.

These are so adorable!

Erin said...

Holly said...

Soo sooo cute! I love those cards! :)

Sarah E. said...

Love the cards :) Very sweet and adorable.

I love that dress!

Katie said...

That is too cute! If I remember correctly (almost 3 years ago!) I made them each a homemade card, and a t-shirt that had the number 10 (our wedding year) and "bridesmaid" "maid of honor" or "matron of honor" on the back.

Celia said...

These are so so cute! I actually asked each girl privately over coffee/lunch/dinner. I kinda wish I would have done something like this, but popping the question to them and then having them tear up with happiness in front of me was awesome. =)

I LOVE that dress! So pretty and flattering!

Kelly said...

What sweet cards, Savanah! LOOOVE the dress-- so flattering and the color is SO cute.

Ashlee Miller said...

They turned out great! Love that you glued them into the card like you did. I had so much fun doing these for you! Thanks for asking me.

That is such a sweet way to tell your bridesmaids! So thoughtful. I will definitely keep such an idea in mind. :)

Sarah-Life is what you make it said...

that is such a cute idea! it's great because the girls can save those cards!

I'm going to remember this for when my turns comes!

Cori H. said...

Those cards are so cute! What a sweet way to ask the girls to be your bridesmaids! I absolutely love the bridesmaid dress you picked out. So pretty!

Sarah @ 90 Percent Blonde... said...

I didn't really ask my sisters in a creative way because I asked them the day after getting engaged. My MOH I made a card for with an ugly dress on it and for my other 2 bridesmaids I did the 'bridesmaid box' found on Pinterest (of course)

Thank you so much for linking up! Don't forget another will take place on March 7th - hopefully you can participate again :-)
