Thank you so much for all your kind words and sharing in the excitement of the news that i recently got engaged and have begun the process of planning the most expensive day of my life..i'm kidding, of course it will also be the most special! :)
I'm very fortunate to have a great group of friends and i've known several of them pretty much my entire life, which is just amazing because they probably know me better than i know myself! It also made choosing my bridesmaids both really easy and yet really hard at the same time - as we're having a relatively small gathering for the ceremony i wasn't too sure it was appropriate to have half the guests walk up the aisle! I decided to keep to 4, which i think is quite a nice, even number and i'm actually so excited to dress them all up. Remember in that episode of Friends where Rachel was a bridesmaid at Barry and Mindy's wedding? ;)

I actually really wanted to share with you something i came across whilst looking at save the date inspiration recently - cards to surprise your friends with to ask them to be your bridesmaid. It's so thoughtful, and something they can keep forever.
Perhaps not to everyone's taste as you personally may find it easier to just ask, but having popped this question 4 times in the last few months, i found it pretty nerve-wracking so is definitely something worth considering if you've got this very important question to ask too!

Finally, i could not resist sharing this puzzle from Lou Brown Designs's just amazing!!

  1. Oh I love this! My best friend asked me to a bridesmaid with a personalised card like these and it meant the world to me. I know she was really nervous too, so it made things easier. I've kept the card and will treasure it for years to come. The Pinterest card in this selection is definitely my favourite - good find. :)
