Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

How did you ask your favorite gals to be in your wedding party?  Did you send the flowers?  Ask them over a bottle of wine??

At the request of a newly engaged lady friend of mine, I wanted to share some cute new ways to ask your 'maids that I have seen around the web! 

"More than a question—a keepsake for years to come."
BHLDN sells these gorgeous handprinted, vintage handkerchiefs made by the very talented ladies at Bird and Banner. Each comes wrapped around a card in which a personalized note can be written.

I recently discovered these beautiful, hand-engraved spoons made by Etsy vendor L'Esperance Design Inspiration.  I think this is a piece I'd save forever in my china cabinet!

I've mentioned what a great gift these custom hangers make before, but thought this DIY touch featured on Something Turquoise was too cute not to show you again!

"Will You Be My" Cards
I think people underestimate the fun of getting mail.  Like actual snail mail with an envelope and stamp.  And I can't think of a more proper way to ask someone for something than by sending them a card!

Rifle Paper Company, a favorite of mine, sells this gorgeous card:

Will you be my Bridesmaid?

Care Packages
Forget snail mail, who doesn't love a good ole care package?!

I personally love this champagne themed box because, if there ever was a time to celebrate with your friends, it is now!  :)

This idea has so much potential...but is definitely lacking on execution.  I know you ladies out there could pull this off much cuter!
