Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

Now that he has popped the question, it is time for you to start asking a few questions of your own. First, who do you want to stand beside you on your special day? This can become tricky, as I am sure you have dozens of friends that would be honored to be part of such a beautiful day in your life. You also don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. My suggestion is to extend the invitation toward those who have been a positive and enduring influence in your life. Ask those who are as close as family and that show genuine and sincere excitement for your engagement. Once you have narrowed down the list, you have to ask yourself how you want to ask the lucky girls. This can be done simply by inviting them out to a girl's day lunch date. 
If you want to make them feel really special, here are a few fun ideas:

A fun little memento box full of information about the big day, fun pictures of you and your friend, old letters you have written, or any other sweet memory you have had together.

 Choose a fun invitation to pop the question. Cleverly designed stationary sets the tone for your wedding.

Another fun idea is to get your bridesmaids the nail polish you would like them to wear on your wedding day.

I love the idea of gifting your bridesmaids matching jewelry to wear on your special day. Make it even more personal by including their first initial. These bracelets from Cusp by Neiman Marcus are darling.

 Being a little funny and cheesy never hurt when hanging out with your girlfriends. Invite them over for movie night and put on this fun movie after breaking the big news.

We would love to hear how you popped the big question to your bridesmaids! Please leave a comment or share a photo.
