Stumped

Just as soon as our date is officially set I want to formally invite my girls to be my bridesmaids. BF/MOH was invited to be my MOH the moment after I told her I was engaged, but everyone else is probably starting to question! Four of my deareast friends (including MOH) are total no-matter-what-bridesmaids. Nothing would ever change my desire to have them stand next to me on my wedding day. But there are three other women who I go back and forth about. I may take a few more months to decide on those. They are not friends with my other BMs so they wont know if the 4 get gifts/invites first.

I have to be honest--I have not seen a BM invite that has really blown me away. MOH lives in SF, 2 live in the LA area and the other is a med student in Ohio. So something I can mail would be ideal. I can figure out something special to write them, but I'd love to send them an invitation in an unexpected way or with a unique token of my appreciation and love. I've thought about baked goods, other sweets etc. But for the life of me I just can't think of a unique way to do this!

So I'm turning this over to anyone reading this. I realize you don't know my friends, but I'm hoping your ideas will spark something for me!

  1. i'm making cards for my bridesmaids, moh, flower girl, and ring bearers. mr. 122 will be making phone calls. heh. anyway, i bought a pack of scrapbook paper from...of all places...target, and made the cards over the past two days. they turned out really great, if i do say so myself. i think i'm going to get some shipping boxes, fill them with candy, or other awesome treats, and include the cards. i'll try to post pictures in the next week on the blog after they've been mailed, but if you want to see them before just email me at 2be122 at gmail dot com :)

  2. The comments I got when I posted about this were crazy awesome! I just wrote cards for my girls, but people were sending amazing things!

    What about simply choosing a favorite photo of the two of you together and having it printed at Costco and writing on the back why you love them? No one every prints anything anymore, so it would be fun for them to have.

  3. Looks like I did the same thing. I handmade these cute cards with what I thought my wedding colors were going to be at the time, and wrote about WHY I chose them and how their friendship was important to me. I mailed it to each of them so it was an even better surprise. :) However, a mini package with a cute cookie and a note might be a good idea! Ps-thanks for the input on the welcome bags :)

  4. I just wrote a card to my girls and it took a long time to hand write all of them and reflect on our relationship and the role they have played in my life, what I appreciate about them, the ways they have supported Adrian's and my relationship, etc. but it was sooo worth it! The responses I have gotten about how much it meant to them have just been wonderful. Plus it was a joy just reflecting on my relationship with each of them. Kelly

  7. Thank you all so much for your help! I'm going to spend some time on the cards and thought of doing a ring-pop proposal via snail mail! I'll let you know once I decide!
