so… you’ve said yes. (yay!) but now the pressure is on you the pop the question… to your girls! long gone are the days when you simply asked someone to be in your wedding party, oh no. there are now props and goodies and hashtags involved. it was so fun to search for all the ridiculously unique ways to ask my gals and envision myself creating these adorable care packages with homemade cake with our wedding colors in a mason jar and a dove that would fly out when they opened it and Parisian music would start to play… and then i remembered that i don’t do shit like that. and so, i came up with my own idea that better fit my style as well as my skill set.
i love photos. and take oodles of them. i like documentation. i love being able to look back and remember. i love nostalgia. so i decided to make photo collages to ask my girls to be part of my big day. i started by taking stock of ALL the photos of me and each girl and created folders for each one. pic monkey (free!) is my photo collage editor of choice, but go with what you feel. i did a mix of old and new photos and then added space for me to speak from the heart. i added a frame that fit each girls personal style to finish it up and make it something they could actually use.
to tie it all together i bought mini bottles of champagne and added my own special label. boom. wedding party accomplished. i should note that in the fella’s world it goes a little something like this:
“hey, so ah, you know you’re in the wedding right?” “yeah.” “cool.”
did you ask your wedding party in a snazzy way? i would love to hear about it. also, we are officially less than 300 days away until #happilyeverbica
