Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today is 10 months from our wedding and is also just a week after I asked all my bridesmaids and maid of honor to stand by me on my special day.
The rule of thumb is to ask them 8 months to a year before the wedding so I figured right in the middle worked perfectly; especially as some are not here in NC. As I was preparing to ask them, I figured a call would honestly do. Then I really started thinking about everything they’re about to commit to… everything that I committed to at some point as a bridesmaid. The travel, cost, time, and patience is no joke, so I wanted to treat them and make them feel as special as possible!
Since I had to ship a few of these boxes, I wanted to keep the “breakables” to a minimum as well as not sending anything liquid or that could melt in transit, so I kept it as feasible- and as cute- as possible. Some of the items I made with my Cricut and some things I purchased.
You’ll notice that I did end up blacking out a few details on my card, but in time I will share that with you guys. I didn’t necessarily pick a theme for the boxes, but I just wanted it to feel beachy and fun. With everything I included, I’ll let you know where I got everything from below!
Box from Michael’s | Filler from Michael’s | Straw from TJ Maxx | Glass from Target – Created the etching myself| Stadium Cups from Amazon- Created the vinyl myself | All snacks from Target | Bubble wrap for shipping & tissue paper from Office Max | Cards & Envelopes from Michael’s | Notepad from Target | Daily Planner from Hadley Designs
All the informational papers were cut with my Cricut and printed at home on nice cardstock that I purchased. I made a card for my colors, attire & accommodations, information about our day and the days leading up to the wedding, as well as a cute note about being a bridesmaid! Although this seems like a lot information right off the bat, I just wanted to ensure they had all the information they needed right away; especially since I have some out of state.
So if you’re been in a bridal party, what’s been your favorite gift or gifts you’ve received? Let me know, as I can always use ideas! Thank you for stopping by for another Wedding Wednesday post in the “Getting to Geraghty” series. I’ll see you next time!
