When planning for your big day, one of the most important decisions the couple must make is who you are choosing to stand next to you when you say those sacred vows. Over the years, we’ve seen brides get more and more creative when it comes to asking their closest friends and family to be a part of their wedding party. Including a unique twist alongside a sentimental thought (and a little help from Pintrest) has left future bridesmaids overwhelmed with joy and anticipation for the special privileges (and responsibilities) that come with being a VIP at the wedding.
After meeting with brides and their bridal parties at our most recent expos, we were particularly touched to hear how Jennifer had asked each of her friends to be a part of her “special team.” Each of the five women did not know each other, as they were connected to Jennifer in a different way (work friend, childhood neighbor, sister, etc.) and the bride was insistent to bring her special group together and bond. Each future bridesmaid received a card from Jennifer inviting them to a birthday party at a local pub. In the card there was a small puzzle piece which was the “ticket” to get into the party. When everyone from the group arrived Jennifer asked the girls to put the puzzle pieces together and the end picture spelled, “I love you all to pieces, will you please be my bridesmaid.” Then she handed each girl a small gift box with a replica puzzle piece magnet that included the wedding date and bridesmaid’s name. Each of the girls was blown away and completely touched that Jennifer would take the time to make this moment special for them and one that they would never forget.
There are so many different ways you can now ask your loved ones to be a part of your special day. From personalized gifts to DIY puzzles, the options are endless. Do you have a creative idea to share with us about how you asked your bridal party to join you on your wedding day?
