- Wedding: September 2013
I saw something on Pinterest that inspired this but sadly I could not find it again! I wanted to do something special to ask my girls to be my bridesmaids. They all live far from me, but are very important to me. I want them to feel special throughout this process of wedding planning even if they are far from me!
I picked up some cigar boxes from Michaels and painted them an antique white color. Two coats on the outside and one on the inside. I then used graphite transfer to trace my ladies’ names on the boxes, traced again with marker and embelished with stick on pearls!
Then on the inside I wanted to add some inspiration boards, some information about what I expect, what they can expect from me, our day and the dress ideas that I have
I also wanted to do something a little clever to “ask” my girls to be bridesmaids. I found these awesome little puzzle cards and I used markers/ Crayons to decorate them asking them to be my maids!
I put them in little organza bags and added a tag:
And this is what it will look like when they open them! Provided the mail carrier doesnt manage to break them!!
What do you all think?
