How to choose your bridesmaids is something most brides put a lot of thought into; from how many bridesmaids to have, to who to ask, there’s a lot to think about.
Whether you’ve always known who you want to walk down the aisle with, or you’ve spent weeks whittling down the list of your besties, the most fun bit is just around the corner.
Asking someone to be your bridesmaid is one of the most important friendship milestones many of us will go through, and while there are lots of fun ways to ask “will you be my bridesmaid?” one of the most simple and touching ways is with a card -plus it won’t use up too much of your wedding budget!
Your friends will treasure the card for years to come, with it becoming a keepsake of the special day, and it’s a great way to let her know how much she means to you, without having to say it out loud – ideal for the shy brides-to-be out there who aren’t keen on voicing their feelings out loud.
