I know I confessed Friday that Wednesdays are becoming my favorite posts -- thanks to Wedding Wednesday -- but this week I'm extra thrilled because today is the first day of our Spring Break. It should've started Monday (thanks a lot snow days) but 5 days work free?...I'll take it.
This week's edition? Asking your bridesmaids with a DIY Bridesmaid Box.
My bridesmaids have already done so much to help, and since they all had a heads up to when I was getting engaged they were on the ball from day one. I am so, so thankful for the girls that will be standing by my side in August. So when asking them I wanted to do a little something extra...in walks my version of a DIY bridesmaid box...
For the box I tried to stick with our wedding colors coral & champagne and things I thought my bridesmaids would use. And just went from there, below are my suggestions, however there are so many things that would be fantastic in a bridesmaid box.
What you'll need:
Michaels: wooden crates || tissue paper, to fill up the crate some|| wedding colored paper crinkle || mason jar tags
**tip you can almost always find a 40-50% coupon for Michaels on their website
Target: EOS chapstick and/or lotion || gold glitter mini clothespins (similar) || gold glitter washi tape (similar) || Nail Polish (wedding color: champagne)
Target $1 Hot Spot: "notes" notepad || Target $1 spot || mini sticky note (flags) || pens and/or pencils (that matched wedding colors)
Hardware/Paint Store: (lowes)
Paint Chips with wedding colors to give bridesmaids a clearer vision of the shade of color you're invisioning.
Other: (not pictured; maybe next week?)
"Will you be my bridesmaid?" card printable || Something Pretty
"Will you be my MOH?" card printable || Chicfetti
meaningful card written to each girl || personal stationary
...next week I'm sharing how I asked my girls to be my bridesmaids with these boxes + another DIY.
What else would you add to a bridesmaid box? How did you ask your girls?
