Wedding Wednesdays Q&A: How To Ask Your Bridesmaids
How To Ask Your Bridesmaids
Q: I know exactly who I want to be my bridesmaids and I’m really excited about it, but I how do I ask them? I see all these fancy presents and cards on Pinterest that say will you be my bridesmaid, but do I need to do all that? Or can I just call my friends up and ask?
I love this question! There is so much more “stuff” now for weddings than there ever used to be that while it creates lots of options, it’s really overwhelming especially when you don’t know what is really necessary. While I’m all for great design and creating an experience, I truly believe that you have to do your wedding your way. What does that mean? It means if going all out and getting presents to give to your bridesmaids isn’t your thing, don’t do it.
There are no rules when it comes to how to ask your bridesmaids, you can do it however you want. Now while there are many trendy or cute things and ideas, don’t do them just because it’s trendy and cute. If it’s not you, don’t do it! You have to do what feels right to you because that will be way more personal and meaningful both for you and your bridesmaids. So, if you like to keep things simple, you can’t beat just asking them when you are hanging out and spending time together (or over phone if you’re long distance). If you like the idea of asking your bridesmaids with some type of “gift”, go for something that you love and they’ll appreciate. It could be flowers, a nice card, yummy pastries, drinks at a fun bar or a beautiful candle. You don’t have to be cheesy or over the top (unless you want to be and that’s ok too), just do what feels right to you. They’ll be thrilled no matter how you ask because they love you and want to help you celebrate in style.
