Will you be my bridesmaid?

When I asked my bridal party to be a part of my special day, I did it the old-fashioned way–either in person or by phone. My lovely ladies are spread around the country and I tried my best to ask them in person if possible, but that wasn’t always the case. I was recently honored with being asked to be the Matron of Honor for one of my very best friends, Lauren; and a bridesmaid for a dear friend, Brynn. They were both in my bridal party too, so now it’s time for payback :). I’m so thrilled to be in these beautiful brides’ weddings. Brynn sent her bridesmaids the note above, which has inspired this post. I was giddy to receive such a cute card, and soon uncovered a plethora of creative ideas out there to ask your bridal party to become part of your special day.

BHLDN (Anthropologie’s yummy new bridal line) has some beautiful vintage-inspired goodies:

I kind of die for these next ones. Vintage hankies (*love*).

For an edible option, I found these adorable cookies on Etsy. A cookie showing up on my doorstep would make my day, for sure.

Not a vintage/girly bride? Try these yummy letterpress cards found on Etsy (I have a deep obsession for letterpress, so beautiful).

And for the out-of-the-box modern bride, I found these gems on Etsy as well.

I hope this inspires you to be creative when asking your bridal party to be a part of your day! What other creative ideas have you seen?
