I knew I wanted to do something special to ask my friends to be my bridesmaids. I’m not an ultra crafty person, but I do enjoy putting extra imagination to an idea, so I decided to print out some pictures I have with each of my closest friends and frame them. After I did that, I went to the Container Store to purchase some blank white boxes. I wrote “I can’t say ‘I do’ without you” on each one in the three colors of my wedding: green, navy and purple.
Then, I typed out a poem that was unique to each friend. The poems all concluded with the question: “Will you be my bridesmaid?” I packaged the frame, poem and special instructional letter inside the white box with the writing outside. Once I got everything together, I tied blue and green ribbon on the outside. I finished it with a special handwritten note.
