We’re not doing too many things the traditional way for a wedding, but then again, we don’t do many things traditionally in many aspects of our lives. I have probably known I would have three maids of honor since I was about eight years old. All three are my sisters (two by blood, and one by best friendship for almost 20 years—and she’s the sister of my fiance!). I wanted to ask them to be my maids of honor in a creative way, and I thought a message in a bottle for my maids of honor was the perfect way to ask them and tie in the beach wedding theme!
Asking my maids of honor to stand by my side: message in a bottle.
You can get as simple or complex as you want. I was just going to make the message in a bottle for them, but then I saw these sand pails at Michaels and thought it might be cute to put a whole little pail together.
