Will You Be My Bridesmaid? DIY Gift Box



You only get married once in your life time, so why not go all out? I wanted to come up with a really creative and special way to ask our bridal party to be part of our wedding. I came up with the idea as I was searching on Pinterest and came across a really pretty picture of a box a bride made for her bridesmaids. I had never heard of anyone doing that before. I just thought you go out to dinner with your girlfriends and ask them. I thought it was very sentimental and unique. I was excited to try it out and in search of more inspiration I found less than ten pins on gift box ideas. I guess this is something new. With a few resources out there it was time to brain storm. I put together my favorite ones and customized everything from scratch by adding my touch. I wanted to make them personal and original. 



I'm not gonna lie making seven boxes was a challenge and a bit pricey, but I didn't mind spending the extra cash to make them exactly what I had imagined.  I picked up these pretty white memory boxes from Michaels for less than $6 each. I have a great software that my Fiance installed for me to make a template of the names with my favorite font. On scrap booking paper I printed each on of the girl's name added them to the front of each box. 




Inside I added three different flavors of our favorite chocolate. The girls loved them.





To make them extra special, I printed out a picture of them and I. I added cute effects to make the pictures the same color palette as the box and added a border around each one with card stock paper. 



 
I saw this on Pinterest and fell in love with the idea of a sneak preview of what you want your wedding to look like. I made a template of the colors I want for my wedding with inspirational pictures. I made cute hearts in the center with the colors I chose. 






Because I haven't found the bridesmaid's dresses yet, I made a collage of what I want their dresses to look like. Of course that's what every bridesmaid  looks forward to. They were all very happy and excited. After I made each template I printed them out on picture glossy paper and added pretty scrapbook paper to the back. Presentation is very important to me. 




With different embellished paper I wrote the girls a cute and simple letter. It was harder than I thought. I also glued on little rhinestones on the corners of the letters to make them look more elegant. 
Each one read:

Will you be my Bridesmaid?

Help me plan this special day.
Hold some gorgeous flowers.
Feel beautiful.
Make unforgettable memories.
Wipe away my happy tears.
Stand by my side as I say, "I do".
I promise the dresses will be great!
I hope you can say "Yes!"




The most expensive but prettiest surprise was a live flower. All together around $45. I recently Tweeted how I was on a hunt for a florist. I was looking for the perfect flower to add to the gift box. Originally I wanted to add peonies. They are my favorite. Peonies only bloom in the the months of May and June and are  nearly impossible to get this time of year. The florist recommended the gerbera daisies. Which are beautiful! The size was just what I was looking for  and they laid perfectly. For the maid of honor, my Sister, I added three white roses to her box. 




The most time consuming project were the wine glasses. They were pretty hard to find since I wanted to make sure they fit in the box. Once I found a good set,  I hand wrote on each glass with special paint I found at Michaels. I have really bad hand writing and this was a challenge for me. By cooking them in the oven at 365°F for 30 minutes it ensure the paint to become permanent. I also embellished the bucket with rhinestones. Hee hee. I'll write more about that in my next post. 




I put a lot of thought and heart to each box. It was a lot of hard work but it was all worth it. I really wanted to send out the right message and show them how important each girl is special to me and how I can't imagine not having them present when it's time for me to walk down the isle. I want to include them in all of the fun events that come with a wedding like planning my wedding, dress shopping, bridal expos, the bachelorette party, and much more!

In order to give each box to them I threw a surprise party to ask them to be part of our special day. They all said yes with a great big smile! Stay tuned to see pictures.

These were my inspiration. I think it's always very important to give credit to those who inspire us and came up with the original idea.

  8. Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated! all of craigslist

  10. Black gift boxes are just as appealing as other colored boxes that attract the eyes more. What you do with them can determine how appealing the gift is to the recipient.http://nopsacredit.fi/lainat/joustoluotto/joustoluottoa-edullisesti/
