Now it’s my turn to pop the question

Because my bridesmaids and Maid of Honor are so important to me, I couldn’t just call them up and ask them to be by my side on January 12th, 2013—I wanted and needed something a little more special.  I loved all of these ideas (click on the image to get the scoop):

I wanted something that reflected my wedding colors and gave me the opportunity to express exactly why I wanted each of these ladies to be my bridesmaid, so I went with a handmade card, similar to this:

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the chevron pattern out of gold glitter paper, used Skor-tape (a super sticky tape) to adhere the zig-zags to off-white cards, and used my inkjet printer for the text on the bottom right-hand corner and the inside center of each card.  I wrote a personalized note for each girl inside et voila!

I love the way they turned out, and my bridesmaids were overwhelmed.  I’m glad I was able to do something that showed them exactly how much they’re willingness to put up with me means.

  1. This is a completely adorable idea, and incredibly thoughtful. I was just in a wedding this last weekend (an amazing one, at that) but it takes a lot of love and effort to make sure everything goes smoothly – from everyone involved. What a great way to make your bridesmaids know how much you appreciate that. I’m filing this away for if I decide to get married someday 🙂 Also – way to go on your craftiness – not going to lie – I’d probably purchase over create!
