Like many girls, I started dreaming about my wedding well before the ring was on my finger, so naturally I knew exactly who my bridesmaids were going to be from the minute I said “yes”. What I didn’t know was how I was going to ask them to help walk me down the aisle. I knew I wanted to do something special and I really wanted to surprise them.
Just after we got engaged we went on a two week holiday to Indonesia and I spotted some ornate silver vile pendants which you could store a little note inside. It turns out, this was the perfect way to ask my lovely ladies to be my bridesmaids. I rolled up little notes which said “be my bridesmaid/maid-of-honour”, stuffed them inside and put them in cute pressed tin boxes (also from said markets). For an added surprise, I divvied these out at Christmas.
The girls said yes! It’s going to be a family affair because my sister is the maid-of-honour and my two sister-in-laws are my bridesmaids. I’m really excited to have my family by my side, supporting Grant and I in our journey to married life!
