will you be my bridesmaid | DIY bridesmaid gifts | Tulsa Photographer

Nothing in my life is more important to me than my friendships. Nothing. I have been blessed with the most incredible and supportive people and now I get to marry my best friend. Someone pinch me! I wanted to ask my girls “will you be my bridesmaid” in a fun and creative way…enter Pinterest! I saw this blog post a few months ago and knew I wanted to do something similar, but with an “Amy twist” 🙂 I think these ” will you be my bridesmaid? ” bridesmaid boxes just might be my favorite part of the wedding!
(Make sure you check out my DIY save the date cards I made, too!)
Here is where I got the idea:
http://somethingturquoise.com/2011/10/14/diy-will-you-be-my-bridesmaid/
I am linking everything I am able to find online so make sure you check out the links!
The person who did the boxes I saw on Pinterest used a ruler to make sure her stamped words were lined up. I’m a color outside the lines kind of girl so I didn’t mess with that 😉
The boxes are from Michael’s {I could not find them online to link them!} and are roughly 5″x5″.
The lace and amazing key print burlap are from Joann‘s and were on sale!
I got the alphabet stamp set and mustache stamp from Hobby Lobby.
Inside jokes/nicknames stamped on the inside of each bridesmaid box lid!
LOVELOVELOVE these cards I found on Etsy from BashoreDesigns!  I placed these on top of the burlap inside the box so it was the first thing they saw when they opened it.
Once they opened the burlap this is what was inside for each of them!
Aren’t they cuuuuuute?!?? I couldn’t be happier with them!
Here are individual pictures of what’s inside and links to where I got them!
I got these adorable letters {their first name initials} at Hobby Lobby!
The rings are from SamMoon.com and I guess they don’t offer these anymore. Click the link to see all of their rings!
These gorgeous earrings are from A Pretty Shoppe! I love following their Facebook page and seeing what they will be offering next. They also have flash sales and discounts posted on there!
These soaps were made by Dallas Soap Company are to. die. for.
I considered keeping all of them! Their Facebook page has up to date pictures on what they are offering and they are always posting the most interesting links!
I got the mini bottles of prosecco at a local liquor store and the ring pops from Wal Mart 🙂

I hope you enjoyed looking at this DIY project as much as I loved doing it! My girls were beyond excited when I gave them these bridesmaid gifts! They all said it was much better than just asking, “Will you be my bridesmaid”?
If you make your own bridesmaid boxes I would love for you to post a link on here so I can see!! I love seeing other people’s creativity!

Now to start our DIY Save the Date cards and get those blogged in the next few weeks!

How adorable! I saw similar ideas when asking my girls but since no one lived near me I mailed them cards. I’m sure your girls loved them. Have fun planning your wedding and enjoy every minute (I’m so bummed mine is over!)

These are by far the cutest little boxes I’ve ever seen. The only problem is there needs to be a 5th one with a “J” 🙂

Love ya!

I love these! I can’t wait to see how the whole wedding unfolds, as I’m sure it will be MAGICAL!!

I love this. I’ve been trying to thinks of ways to ask my girls and I think I am going to steal ideas from you 😀

Kristina - July 11, 2013 - 10:50 AM

Such a great idea! I may steal it but use it as a thank you gift for my bridesmaids =) – seeing as I’ve already asked/told them they are going to be my bridesmaids haha
