Since getting into the wedding business, I have read so many horror stories about Bridesmaids gone rogue. It’s crazy! If you decided to really branch out, and pick your very best friends to be your bridesmaids, you may want to read this post! I’ve got some fun gift ideas, and ways to ask your girls to be your bridesmaids!
I could have been a little more creative with asking my girls. Honestly, though, they knew it was coming, and that they would be asked. The night he proposed, my husband and I, cozied up on the couch with a phone, and called everyone who needed to know before the Facebook announcement went out. I know, I know! Waiting that long to make it Facebook official is brave. We made it through, though! Anyway, I cut right to the chase. As soon as they answered the phone, I asked them to be my bridesmaids. Que squealing. It was a great moment. However, if you are wanting to make it a bit more official, I love this card by Creatively Engaged!
Hilarious! Creatively Engaged founder, Alisa, has won the Knot Best Weddings Award and the New Jersey Bride Magazine’s prestigious ‘Love It’ award for Best Invitations in 2012. She is the real deal! There is so much more than this awesome card happening at Creatively Engaged, as well. Check out her Etsy shop and her website for more great ideas!
I racked my brain for Bridesmaid’s gifts. Seriously, with so much wedding running through my head, I was out of creativity. Finally, I decided on shoes. They had bought the dresses I wanted, and we were all wearing the same shoes. So, I gave them the shoes as their gift. They were awesome!
Jaclyn, over at Ready Maker Designs, has some great ideas for gifts, as well. I love this mug set! I’m Southern, the more personalized things are the happier I am!
She has all kinds of styles, too. Love it! All her work is by hand. She has wedding invitations, greeting cards, personalized stamps, and much more! Swing by her Shop, and see for yourself!
Staying true to my Southern roots again. I LOVE this initial, pearl necklace! I found it over at PetiteVanilla. They have so many different styles, but the pearl is my fav, of course! I think it’s the personal details that let your girls know you appreciate them, and all they have done for you!

I hope this has been helpful, and given you some inspiration! Check back next Wednesday for more Bridesmaids Ideas!
