“Be My Bridesmaid?” Mini Book

January 13, 2012

I wanted to find a special way to ask the bridal party to be in our wedding. Making something for them gave me time to think about how important they are to me and it also allowed me to give them a little memory token from that very special moment.

I decided to make mini accordian booklets that would open up to ask the question “Be My Bridesmaid?” or “Be My Maid of Honor?” The project is based on a DIY I saw on DesignSponge.

I gave one Bridesmaid her book in person over Christmas. I sent another bridesmaid’s booklet to Florida and instructed her to open while on the phone with me. I asked my cousin to be the Maid of Honor over beers after our family’s Thanksgiving visit to New York. I just couldn’t wait!

One of my resolutions is to make more… so you should be seeing more projects this year. Hope you like them! Have a wonderful weekend!

      Ha, wouldn’t it be nice if I’d have actually given it to you before I posted on the blog. Wretched bride!

        No, I think it is very appropriate that you have gifted it to me via your blog, since I read it first thing every morning!
