Considering we're only planning on having around 85 guests, we decided on an intimate-sized wedding party. I asked two of my best girlfriends to be my bridesmaids (no maid of honor here!). I really wanted the two girls in my Bible study to be a part of our special day as well, so I asked them to be my honorary bridesmaids.
To ask the girls to be my bridesmaids I printed out this adorable card in our wedding colors and packaged them along with some stickygrams of us I ordered! I then created my own envelopes in coordinating colors!
For the honoraries I wanted to do something a little different. I created our custom monogram in our wedding colors, of course, and then used fancy typography in Publisher to create a similar special invite for them packaged in my DIY envelopes with stickygrams!
I ended up clipping the ask cards to be a lot smaller in order to fit inside the envelopes.
PS check out that double-sided tape. Ew, talk about yellowing with age..
The most fun part was using my metallic Sharpies to create little polka dots all over the handmade envelopes!
I chose gold for the yellow envelopes and silver for the mint.
Even though I often see the girls in person, there is something so fun and, these days, out-of-the-ordinary about receiving snail mail, so I sent these via USPS.
How did you or how are you planning to ask your bridesmaids?
