Inspiration:Will You Be My Bridesmaid


When I started planning my wedding, I thought I knew all there was to know about weddings.  Boy was I wrong.  There are so many projects and ideas for brides that love to showcase their creative side.  One cute and thoughtful idea I discovered while planning was “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” Cards and gifts.

These cards and gifts are personalized for each bridesmaid and maid or matron of honor.  The bride simply gives a card or a small gift asking her friend or family member to stand beside her on her special day.  I decided to make each of my ladies a personalized goodie box with tools to help ease the pain of assisting me with planning.  Each lady received a personalized box with a ring box complete with a toy diamond ring.  I worked all week preparing the boxes…creating the cards and making sure everything was perfect.  I invited the ladies over to an evening of wine, food, fun and socializing.  It was also a great opportunity to introduce members of the bridal party that are not acquainted.  The ladies loved the boxes!


Here is the poem I used on their personalized cards:

The day, the dress
The bride, the groom
The joy, the tears
Will all come so soon

Professing true love
To my husband-to-be
With family and friends
All watching me

I hope the sun will
Be shining down,
Keep your fingers crossed
That I’ll fit in my gown

But there’s just one more thing
that there needs to be…
and that’s to have you
Standing with me!

Will you be my bridesmaid?

Here are a few ideas to get you started on your OWN “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” cards or gifts!
