Back in February, after Mr. Poodle and I started our visa petition, we couldn’t wait to share the news of our engagement with everyone!
Because not all of my girls here in Chile can buy a ticket to go to our wedding in California, I decided that my side of the wedding party would consist of my little sister and best friend from Chile, along with my other 2 ‘maids from California. I wrote everyone an email and asked them to be my ‘maids, but just like Miss Bear Cub, I did that months ago—but I needed to let them know in a more “official” way that I REALLY wanted them there with me .
SO, I jumped on the card bandwagon!
I knew I wasn’t a good card maker, so I needed something really simple—something that I could pop the question again in and also where I could have plenty of room to write about the dresses I wanted to make for them, let them know each others’ information (since two of them are from Chile), and send them a little piece of the dress fabric. This was my sketch idea:
This is the finished result. I had old, purple ribbon and white, thick paper to use. I also found a (not very cute) green paper. I first drew and then cut the little dresses, and I also used a tiny piece of tulle for my veil .
It took me around a half hour to get the 4 of those done (2 cards in Spanish and 2 in English). I was really happy to send them out!
How did you ask your ‘maids to be a part of your wedding party? Do you have long distance BMs? How are you handling the coordination with the distance between you?
