-Make a small photo album of pictures of the two of you. On the last page, write your wedding date, leaving room for a photo of the two of you. As she’s looking through the book, and gets to that page, say “I can’t wait to put a picture of the two of us from my wedding day on that page. Would you be my bridesmaid?”
-Wrap a bridesmaid guidebook in pretty paper, and put a note on top saying “This is something you may need soon.” Be sure to tuck a personal note inside the book before you wrap it. She’ll have the surprise and laughs when she first opens the gift, but still be able to read your touching words.
-Send flowers in your wedding colors to each girl with a personal “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” card
-Put together a bridesmaid survivor kit with a compact mirror, a measuring tape (for their measurements for the bridesmaid dresses, each will get two), a pen to write with, a little canvas pouch for their makeup and a personalized notepad. Include a personal note asking them to be in your wedding.
-Send them each a card with a Godiva chocolate cake favor
We love the card pictured above with “Say Yes to the Dress”. You can find it here.
