There are so many adorable ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ Ideas out there, and I always knew this was something I wanted to do.
I love giving gifts and seeing people’s reactions when they open them (even the ones who find it really awkward)
I don’t have specific bridesmaids in the western sense but there are some special relationships that don’t fall under friends or family. For me it was a gesture to show my friends like family how much they mean to me and a thank you in advance for all their help along the wedding planning process !
Personalisation and practicality were my two key factors - here’s how I put it all together:
1. Blank photos cards - Kikki.K.
I printed my favourite photo with each person & wrote ‘will you be my bridesmaid (or bhabimaid?) on the inside along with a personalised message.
2. Stemless wine glasses - Kmart
Drinks taste better in pretty glasses - it’s a fact
3. Name decals from Etsy store - The Decal Den
They were a last minute rush order, I picked them up after work and they were a breeze to put on
4. Notebook & Pen - Kmart
For all the planning - on the inside I wrote what aspects of the planning I would especially be needing their help e.g. Outfit design or hens planning
5. Mini Tissue Pack - Typo
Because we cant help but get emotional ! And these ones are super cute with their motivational quotes on them
6. Kraft brown Gift Box & Ribbon - The Reject Shop
They have a great choice of sizes and styles
For my sisters I threw in a little extra lush product to help get their skin event ready ! (Because only sisters know that much detail about your skincare).
It was pretty simple to put together (and cost effective) and the reactions were priceless !
I would highly recommend making your own because there is nothing like adding a personal touch.
Would love to hear what you did
