I haven't yet asked anyone besides my MOH to be my bridesmaid. I knew MOH was my MOH a while ago. I've only known her since college, but we've become true best friends since she moved back to SF and I moved to NorCal. I've known my other BM candidates for about 20 years! They undoubtedly know that they will be in my wedding, but I want to officially ask them and make it special.
I found these great poems online. Some of them are pretty cheesy. But there was one that I actually really liked.
What I love about this style is that it's feminine without being frilly. While the JH design does have a bow in the back, it's not very big and well, it's in the back. I'd love to avoid ribbons and bows as much as possible simply because if I were a BM I'd really rather not wear a bow. I'm not opposed to the sash idea, but I'm trying to avoid that as well. I think this style would look great in Navy. When I say navy, I'm hoping for more of a saphirre-where it looks blue, not black.
I can't wait to officially welcome my girls into my wedding party. DF and I have some discussing to do so that I can attempt to make our parties even. Right now I'm at 5 with with possibility of asking his cousin, who has become a good friend to me, and is like a sister to DF. DF's real sister lives in Michigan. I've only met her once (right after we were engaged) and while I suppose it would be nice to have her in it, I'd really like to make sure that my maids are all true friends. So I think asking his cousin (who lives a mile away) would make more sense.
On the other hand, DF has A LOT of close friends. One problem: they all don't get along! I don't envy him as he tries to make these decisions, but the sooner we know his count the sooner I can start asking!
Any cool ideas to share?
