He’s popped the question. You said, “Yes!” Now it’s time to ask your girls, “Will you be my bridesmaid?”
Shouldn’t this moment serve as a great way to build lasting memories? We thought so too! When Dionne suggested “Cute ways to ask her to be your bridesmaid” as a blogging topic. I immediately thought about her super creative stationery designs. Dionne comes up the the most creative stationery designs ever. You should see this thank you card she made for her baby shower! So… I decided to channel my inner Dionne with this topic and comb the web for cute ideas to ask her to be your bridesmaid.
When I was a little girl, I LOVED making paper dolls. Didn’t we all? Naturally, when I stumbled upon this idea, it brought back fond memories of paper doll making of my younger years. 🙂 You’ll find many takes on this cute idea online, but we found the original source from Anna Bond, of Rifle Designs as it was posted on the blog of Once Wed. Isn’t it adorable?! We thought so too. Anna was gracious to share step by step instructions along with pictorial diagrams here on Once Wed’s blog.
A card is a really nice idea to “pop the question,” but an in person touch is even more special. Consider hosting a special gathering or a mini getaway to celebrate your newly found engaged status. During cocktails or after dinner and dessert — of course, present each of them with this totally fitting and super cute customized paper doll tote. Tell your girls how special it would be if they would journey through your “I dos” together, at your side.
You can totally customize this tote at this Etsy store to fit the look of each of them. I love the way you can select each detail to help each doll take on a look of each girl. http://preciousnuptials.com/blog/2013/03/05/will-you-be-my-bridesmaid/Selecting from three standard skin tones, four hair colors, fifteen hair designs, dress color and belt color are all available options to pick and choose from.
Next, fill each tote with something unique to each of your bridesmaid’s personalities. Don’t forget the Kleenex! She’ll love the effort you put into popping the question just as much as you loved the effort your fiance put into his proposal.
Enjoy and don’t forget to tell us how you”ll ask her, “Will you be my bridesmaid?”
