As a newly engaged bride-to-be I knew who I wanted to ask to be in my bridal party, and I knew that I wanted to ask them in a special way, but I wasn’t sure how. The ladies I had chosen are pretty spread out all over the world, from California to France to South Africa. Only two of my friends actually reside in Pennsylvania with me, so that made any sort of get-together to ask in person out of the question. Also, strictly from a cost perspective, anything I mailed had to be lightweight, inexpensive, and fairly flat. The last thing I wanted was to force a friend to pay customs fees on a present asking them to be in my wedding, so a card seemed like a good way to go.
I saw a lot of great ideas on Etsy, but ultimately decided that making it myself would be more personal and meaningful; plus, it would create a legitimate excuse to partake in my favorite type of shopping excursion. To the craft store I go!
