One day I saw the most amazing 'pin' featuring Bridesmaid Boxes.
When I clicked through to the blog, I fell in love with everything about her wedding.
Did I mention her name was Bethany, too?!
Although I was greatly tempted, I refrained from repining because I instantly decided that one day I would do the same for my bridesmaids and they couldn't see it coming.
And I did!
It was so fun!
All I did was buy wooden boxes from Hobby Lobby.
I painted them coral,
and then stenciled "Be my Maid?" in navy on the lid.
I filled the boxes with photos of my wedding style inspiration, paint samples and a little name tag for each maid.
I wanted to include more girls than my three maids,
so I created a support group and gave them all names like:
Maid of Encouragement
Maid of Laughter
Maid of Hospitality
Maid of Literature
Maid of Creativity
Maid of Good Tidings
Maid of Memories
Maid of Generosity
In my maid boxes, I also included four little note cards that I got from Target, and I designed them to each be a bit smaller. The cards included: "Your Dresses," "My Girls," "Your Role," and "Our Day." This was an idea from the original Maid boxes, but I personalized the cards for my girls and my big day.
It was so fun to make these boxes and share them with my friends. I also made little cards for my support girls and mailed them or hid them in other presents or goodies.
So now, I have my guy and I have my girls.
I'm ready to go!
