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.
