Where would you be if it weren't for all of the important gal pals in your life? Probably not right where you are now! So, how do you let them know just how important they are to you when planning the most important day of your life? Here are some fun ideas from wedding party proposals to thoughtful thank you gifts!
* Wedding party proposals are a BIG DEAL! Now when we say BIG DEAL, it doesn't mean you have to spend your whole wedding budget in this area. The main thing to keep in mind is to be thoughtful. A great way to propose to your gals is to make a thoughtful box that hold memories from the time you met. Were you babies together? Include a picture and a pacifier. Did you meet in middle school. Include a pic of your more than out of date hair styles and a little mascot figurine. If you are new friends, but can't be separated, write them a note explaining how you don't know how you survived without them. You don't have to stop at one memory...
Here's a sweet note you can include with the special items in the personalized box:
Friends may come and go, but you are not just a friend. You are my forever friend. There may be times that we see each other more, or less, but we can (and will) always pick up right where we left off. Thank you for making me know that in my heart. For these reasons, I would be honored if you would be my bridesmaid.
*Throughout planning, your gals will be by your side. They may choose to throw you an engagement party, wedding shower, or whisk you away on a bachelorette weekend. Embrace every single moment. They will all, of course have opinions on wedding details. Even if you don't agree, remember that they voice these opinions because they love you. Take it all in, use the ones you love, and graciously leave the ones you don't. If any one seams to voice too many, maybe give them a job that makes them feel needed. That's usually what is wanted. Let each one have tasks. These can include planning, a party, the rehearsal dinner, packing the wedding day car for the bride or groom, unpacking at the venue, helping choose photo Inso, touching base with vendors about details, and so much more. There's never a lack of things to do!
