Better Than a Save-the-Date!

When brides-to-be ask their friends to be bridesmaids, some ask casually, some send an e-mail, some send a cute card, but some go all out. One of my best bride-to-be friends did just that. With great style and every fashionista’s dream job as Merchandising Coordinator for Tory Burch in Manhattan, Ashley wouldn’t have done any less.

Her wedding planner, Sara Fay Egan of Todd Events in Dallas, suggested Ashley try something creative and different. Twelve satin padded hangers, faux Gerber daisies, green ribbons, a hot glue gun, and one cute poem later, these adorable bridesmaids’ invitations were born.

Though the wedding planner offered to make the invitations and have them sent to each of her bridesmaids straight from Dallas, Ashley decided to make them herself for a more personal touch. She said it was super easy and chose yellow and green for the invitations since those colors will make up her June wedding’s décor, bridesmaids’ dresses, and flowers.

Having opened my exciting package during my lunch break from flower, I immediately brought my invitation back to work for all the flower girls to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over it like I did. Not surprisingly, everyone loved the idea and I knew I had to share it with you, too.

In case you can’t read the poem clearly from the picture…

Save Room In Your Closet

The Day, The Dress
The Bride, The Groom
The Joy, The Tears
Will All Come So Soon

Professing True Love
To My Husband-To-Be
With Family And Friends
All Watching Me

I Hope The Sun Will
Be Shining Down,
Keep Your Fingers crossed
That I’ll Fit In My Gown…

But There’s Just One More Thing
That Needs To Be…
And That’s To Have You
Standing With Me!

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

    Love it! What a wonderful idea! This gesture would definitely put a smile on any prospective bridesmaid’s face. That it was hand-made adds even more to just how special this “better than a save-the-date” was.
