DIY Be My Maid Box – Asking Your Bridesmaids

DIY Be My Maid Box – Asking Your Bridesmaids

The first wedding project post!  Yay!  🙂  These DIY Be My Maid Box – Asking Your Bridesmaids boxes were so fun to make. Asking your ladies to be a part of your big day was an important project for me, I wanted each of my bridesmaids to know why I picked them and that they are a very big part of mine & Matt’s special day!

Between having a lot of sisters, a big family, and great friends, I ended up with 7 bridesmaids, and I couldn’t be happier!  *Note I gave one of my out of town girlfriend’s their box prior to the post pics, so we are missing one! 🙂

I had seen a few ideas on Pinterest of cute ways to ask (boxes, wine, etc.)  I ended up buying these wooden boxes with a chalkboard top from Michaels and using a paint pen to write each bridesmaid’s names on the boxes.  I also used scrapbook paper and glitter stickers for the inside of the lids to ‘pop’ the question to the girls.

Here is a summary of the contents of the box:

1)  Mini wine bottle (diet coke bottle for the {at the time} pregnant maid of honor  🙂 )

2)  Cardstock with info about our day, bridesmaid ‘duties’, and a summary of each of the ladies

3)  Dove chocolate, obviously!

4)  Inspiration/ambiance images that communicated the overall look/feel/colors of our day

Lucky for me all my maids said ‘yes’!  You can see Lewis was clearly exhausted from the project.

Enjoy!
