Coming up with a memorable way of asking my Maid of Honors (I had 2) and Bridesmaids was very important to me! I had a HUGE bridal party of 9 girls and I wanted each one of them to feel special!! I decided to make these memory boxes. I went with the boxes so that the girls could have a “memory” box to store pictures! I love gifts that are cute & PRACTICAL!!
To start I bought the memory boxes from my favorite place, Michael’s Craft Store!! They always have deals on cute picture boxes (They were on sale for $3.00 at the time!!). I then went to Home Depot and picked up paint strips (the free samples!! I love free!!!) of the colors of their dresses I wanted them to wear. If you haven’t notices, I am OBSESSED with mint!! My wedding colors were mint & coral 🙂 On the paint strips I wrote “Be my bridesmaid?” and wrote their name & the wedding date on scrapbook paper. I also bought cute flower stickers from Michael’s and put pictures that I had with the bridesmaid that the box was for!!!
In the boxes I put a bunch of fun goodies!! I ordered tumbler cups off of Etsy for each of the girls. I had a mint dress on each one of them and it had “Bridesmaid” written on them with their initials!!
I also had mint color nail polish (the color of their dresses), mint candies and a little note pad from Michael’s ($1)!!
I added the white crinkle paper to stuff up the box and make the boxes look pretty!!!
As you can imagine, the girls loved their boxes!!!
Here are my Maid Of Honors (I decided to include both of my wonderful sisters)
Here are some of my bridesmaids reactions 🙂
I cannot thank my maids for all of the help and time they put into our big day! I love you girls!!
