I have been mulling over how the “Will you be my bridesmaid?” is going to go down.
So far, ideas are NOT turning up roses!
I initially thought, why not do a brunch! But everyone being scattered throughout the country & landing on a mutual date has a high potential of being difficult for at least some of them. Then I thought about flying out to each one of them to see them briefly, grab a bite and ask them in person! Due to myself being booked every single weekend for the rest of 2012, I had to quickly scrap the idea of Bridesmaid Tour 2012. BOO!
I am not wild about anything that I have seen people do to ask their bridesmaids, and I have got to tell ya, Pinterest is no respite from that, either.
According to the pins on Pinterest I have run across, here are your top two options:
1. Give them a card that literally says “Will you be my bridesmaid?” on it
Further findings: Maybe if you get it from Etsy you will feel less boring about it…?
2. Compile a box of worthless items like: neon sunglasses, an itty bitty fake dress on an itty bitty hanger, a chocolate bar and a keychain. Oh, and include the question somewhere on or in it “Will you be my bridesmaid?”
Further findings: I saw many variations of this idea and they all ranked TERRIBLE on my scale of acceptability. Don’t get me wrong, I saw some decent looking boxes (when was the last time you heard someone say that btw?), but then sure enough they were chalk full of useless junk! I know the dollar spot at Target can be fun people, but don’t get someone who is supposed to be one of your closest friends a box full of dollar spot crap! Get it together America!
The hunt for something great continues.
