There were bridesmaid gift sets:
What does every bridesmaid need? Band-aids, for those inevitable blisters. A nail file for those last minute nail crises. Bobby pins, for the hair do that just can't quite survive the wind. Mentos, for some fresh breath. Safety pins, for those unfortunate dress incidents. Kleenex, for those unexpected tears. And chocolate kisses, to remind them that no matter how crazy I get, I really do love them. :)
I tried to get creative with some of the items...
And I found these beautiful bags on clearance at Bath & Body Works! (Only $5 each!)
And so, the survival kits were created. I put a little note in each one that read:
It's hard to believe that in just a little while,
Nate and I will be walking down the aisle,
You've stood right beside me through thick and thin,
And I want you to be there when I marry him,
Nothing would give me more joy and pride,
Than to have you there, by my side.
Will you be my Maid of Honor/Bridesmaid?
I wish I could take credit for the poem, but I found it online. :) And I am happy to say that the bridesmaid's kits had a 100% acceptance rate!
How did you ask your bridesmaids/maid of honor to be part of your special day?
