- Wedding: August 2013
This is my first post I’m really excited to have a place to share all my wedding DIY’s and details. As avid DIYers, my fiance and I have a blog that I share all of our home related projects on, but since most of my family and friends read it, I didn’t want to post any of the wedding related projects before the wedding. Don’t want to ruin any surprises!
My first project was creating a cute way to ask my girls to be my bridesmaids. I presented them with a gift bag that held a box with a tag that read “Will you…” and a bottle of homemade wine.
Inside, I painted the inside of the lid with the rest of the question. I also wrote one of those multiple question cards you see all over Pinterest. I added some tchotchkes like a acrylic diamond, mints, and a magnet with the wedding date and our initials that I kind of made our unofficial logo for the wedding.
I mixed and matched and used some of the questions I had found from my inspirations, but took the ones out that were a little snarky like, “Will you wear your hair anyway I tell you, even if it makes you look ugly?” Eek! That’s definitely not me, and instead asked, “Will you keep me calm and remind me that the marriage is more important than the wedding?”. I did keep in one of my favorites, “Will you hold my dress when I pee?”
All the girls pretty much knew they were going to be asked and were expecting something homemade, and all really liked them, I even got some tears!
