If you think that asking your bridesmaids to be your bridesmaids is just a matter of sending a message on Facebook, think again. They will essentially be sacrificing months of their lives to serve as your unpaid slaves, whilst also blowing their own hard-earned cash on their outfits, your bridal shower and hen’s night. Add to that the fact that they will have to deal with your pre-wedding Bridezilla jitters, and you get an iota of what a big deal it actually is to say ‘yes’ to your request. It stands to reason then that you should invest a little time and effort into making your question a meaningful one. Write each of your bridesmaids-to-be personalised notes stating why it would mean the world to you for them to be your bridesmaid, and then pop the note into a box with a thoughtful gift like a charm bracelet, or handmade cookies (if they have a sweet tooth), before hand-delivering it to them. Seeing their eyes light up when they open the box will add to the significance of the occasion.
