I’m sure you’ve noticed that I recently created a new category on The A List – all about weddings! In today’s post, I am sharing how I asked my bridesmaids if they will stand by my side on my wedding day by sending them sweet, sentimental handwritten cards.
Since becoming engaged this spring, suddenly my life shifted focus a bit. Not only have we just bought a house, but now we need to start thinking about a wedding. Most little girls dream of their wedding day, but now the moment is finally here where it’s no longer a dream but a reality.
Marriage is super important and sacred to me, so when it came to choosing my bridal party I chose those who are super close to both T and I, and I couldn’t have asked them a better way. I thought a personal, handwritten card was both sentimental and emotional (two of my bridesmaids cried when they received their cards!). Believe it or not, I asked my bridesmaids if they would stand beside me at my wedding before we even started looking at dates and before we even began searching for venues!
What’s no secret is that I asked my sister Jessica to be my maid of honor (okay so technically she’s married which makes her a “matron” of honor but we are still calling her my “maid” of honor). I stood beside her just a few months ago as her maid of honor, and now the roles have been switched. She has always known she would be my maid of honor whenever I got married, but sending her a card asking her formally if she would be my maid of honor was a beautiful moment.
For this giveaway, I am giving away a pack of Rifle Paper & Co’s Blooming Bridesmaid cards and a Maid of Honor card! Sending a personal, handwritten note to the ones you want standing beside you for one of the most important moments of your life is a sweet gesture that you all cherish for years to come.
To enter, comment below with who you would have as your maid/matron of honor or head to my Instagram and tag which friends you would want standing by your side under the photo of the bridesmaid cards. Winner will be selected at random. Contest ends Friday, August 28!
