Will you be my bridesmaid?

Wednesday, March 5, 2014
One of the best parts of my wedding day (aside from, of course, marrying the man of my dreams), will be that I get to spend an entire day with those I love all in one place. 

Five of those individuals that I love are my very best girl friends who will be calming me down, making me laugh, and standing by my side on this utmost important day. I feel incredibly blessed to have these ladies in my life, and so when it came time to ask them to be a part of my wedding, I wanted it to be as fun and thoughtful as they are! I set out to peruse Pinterest and my favorite blogs to see what was out there, and while I ultimately decided to create something of my very own, I came across so many great ideas along the way, that I thought I'd share some with you today!
For my girls, I decided to go the dessert route. I mean let's be honest, you can't wrong with something sweet, right?

I hit up a local bakery and got some of their fabulous pink lemonade cupcakes and had each one boxed up individually. I then utilized my Dr. Seuss skills to whip up a little rhyme, which I cut and backed on scrapbook paper and then stuck into the cupcake using a toothpick.

Once ready, I used ribbon and scrapbooking flowers, in my wedding colors no less, to wrap it up and add a nice finished touch!

Then the fun part began....the delivery!

Sticking with the dessert theme, I came across these lovely bunches of goodness in my initial search that may be an option if you prefer cookies instead from The Pastry Studio.

I also thought this cakepop invitation was just too much fun! (Source unidentified.)

Looking to do something that doesn't involve food?

I love these boxes that Brit from Life in Hearts put together for her girls. She even filled them with bridesmaid essentials!

These pennant jars from Lindsey Brooke are a great way to turn the question into something creative. 

And if you are looking for something with a little more "pop", this idea from Sobrina at Quiet Like Horses may be up your alley!

Or maybe you have some seriously organized (or the contrary ;)) ladies on your hands. I love this idea of giving your girls planners to help them remember all of those important dates! Such a practical gift. (Source unidentified.)

There are so many uniquely creative ideas out there. These were just a few of my favorites. I encourage you to find something that will be special for both you and "soon-to-be" bridesmaids!
