Pretty Please?: Asking My Bridesmaids

I knew I wanted to do something special for the ladies that would be standing next to me on my big day. I absolutely love pictures because each and every one brings back a memory and the feelings/laughs/joy that go along with the memories. I also love scrapbooking, so I decided scrapbooks for each bridesmaid would be the perfect solution! I was able to find pink scrapbooks in the dollar spot at Target, which worked perfectly. I found some damask scrapbooking paper at Hobby Lobby and some pink letter stickers so that each of the girl's books had their initial on the front. After I went through pictures of myself with each of them, I had them printed and then cropped and rounded the corners of each of them. At this point they looked like this:

And after putting in the pictures and some scrapbooking paper, also found in the dollar spot at Target, they ended up like this (this particular one is one of my MOHs - my best friend who is also engaged to her high school sweetheart!):

(This is her proposal picture and our proposal picture next to each other - They were kind of similar! :) And then us with our rings!)

The last page was a card actually asking them to be part of our bridal party.

I made a scrapbook for each of my 5 BMs and also David's little sister, our JrBM. It was a lot of fun going through all of the pictures and remembering why each of them is so special to me! I gave 4 of them their books in person:

Giving BM M her book

Giving JrBM K her's - She and FMIL cried!

And a few of the books had to be sent - BM B (my sister) lives in Arizona and MOH A is in the Air Force and is in tech school in Texas. MOH A called me from the post office crying to say yes!

I loved that each of them has a keepsake now and that they were so grateful for and touched by the gesture! It was totally worth the time and effort that went into them.

Did you do anything special to ask your bridesmaids?


  1. These are all SUPER cute! Great job!

  2. Thanks! They were definitely a labor of love - they took forever! But they were so worth it!

  3. So cute! Love how you asked! I'm 'popping the question' to my girls this week! Their little gift is in the mail to them so I'm excited to get their reaction! :)

  4. This is so lovely - I just love it when people do such personal things! I'm making gifts for my MOH and the Mum's - they're going to have hand-beaded sparkly bracelets to say thank you.
