Popping the Question… to my Bridesmaids

Less than two months until our wedding, EEP! In the midst of final planning, I started reminiscing of the time when I was newly engaged, and when I asked my wonderful girlfriends to be my bridesmaids & Maid of Honor. I made each of my girls a personalized gift box (my Maid of Honor got a big one!), and made it so that each of my girls would see my very important question when they first opened the box: Will you be my Bridesmaid?

I got these really cute personalized wine glasses from Sweet Southern Company for each of my girls. I loved that they had so many different font colors, styles and dresses to be on the wine glass – it made the personalization part fun 🙂 My Maid of Honor got a little something extra special. We’re both wine drinkers, so why not stick our faces on a wine label?! I had a personalized wine bottle made at Windsor Vineyards with a label that I’ve designed. Orders come with two bottles, so I got to keep one as well.

My girls LOVED them! First, I treated my fine ladies to a Sunday bottomless mimosas brunch. Then, had our wonderful food, and only when our tummies were full and happy, I made my little speech and presented their boxes to them.

I even made my Maid of Honor cry! Great success *thumbs up*

Unfortunately, my last but not least bridesmaid lives in Australia and could not be with us on our brunch outing. But I was still able to ask her in person when I went on my Australia trip last May. I made her cry too, but didn’t have my camera in time to capture it *wink*

And here they are, my beautiful girls inside and out, who will stand by my side on my wedding day. Everyday, I’m so grateful that I can call them up (or text) to see them. Well, except for Maiko. She’s an ocean apart, but I’m still working on convincing her to move out to LA *wink*.
