I’m so proud of myself. I made something. No, you don’t understand. I only know the expression “DIY” as a command. As in, “Oh, you need laundry done? Why don’t you DIY, pimp?” So the presence of these items constitutes a momentous achievement on my part:
Even though we’re wedding party-less, I still very much want my girlfriends to come hang out and help me get ready before the ceremony. And not just for lovely pictures like these or these. I can think of no better way to get psyched for the party than being surrounded by my laughing (and likely tipsy) friends. So I made them backstage bridal passes!
So while they may not be bridesmaids, they can still be “bridal chamber maids” (which really doesn’t sound that distinguished, but it wouldn’t say “Lovebug was here” if it didn’t include wordplay).Of course, no one will be expected to actually wear them (though they do come with lovely satin ribbon necklaces). They’re basically symbolic, as a way to thank my girlfriends for their friendship and support, and to let them know how much they mean to me (all this will go in an enclosed note, natch).
I don’t think Martha’s going to come begging for tips anytime soon, but I thought I’d share. 🙂
