Bridesmaid Luncheon!

Asking your favorite ladies to be apart of your bridal party in chic, cutesy ways seems to be the route many brides-to-be are taking these days. There's so many things to make the "asking" special such as "Will You Be My Bridesmaid" poems, and personalized cards and trinkets.

Unfortunately for me, I was so excited when I got engaged that I just asked my girls immediately after telling them I received the ring. Had I just breathed for just a split second, I would have probably jumped on the cutesy she-she-foo-foo bandwagon ways of asking my ladies in waiting.

Instead, I have been waiting and anticipating for January 2009 to host a Bridal Party Luncheon!!! Ahh, so you want to know what this entails?

Well, it's going to be a small but tasteful affair held at my grandmother's house. I chose my grandmother's house because it's intimate and spacious enough for this type of gathering. It is also the place where my girls and I will get dressed at on my wedding day.

Each lady will receive an invitation which I intend to design. {pictures to come!}

On the day of, each lady will get:

A custom embroidered bridesmaids shirt. {This is not how it will look, but I just decided not to leave you picture-less!}



A bridesmaid newletter edited and published by yours truly. It will act as a way of keeping the ladies updated about fittings, meetings, and deadlines. {Truth is, I personally just enjoy making them..lol}

I really wanted to comprise a newsletter for my girls but other priorities came into play. Maybe I'll eventually get one out!
