Unique Invitations for Bridesmaids and Flower Girls

Before you can start “officially” planning your big day and shopping for the decorations, dresses and other important items, you need to get your bridal party on board. Most brides rush right out and ask their friends if they will be one of their bridesmaids, as well as the flower girl. However, why not take a more creative and unique approach when asking your women-of-honor if they will accompany you on your wedding day? Below are a few unique ideas:

•    Order Champagne  - Sounds odd, doesn’t it? Well, this is a unique and fun way to ask your friends if they would be your bridesmaids and help you celebrate your wedding day. All you need to do is order personalized wine bottle labels, purchase the champagne (or wine) bottles, label them and you’re ready to go!

•    Bake Cookies – Bring each of the potential bridesmaids a basket of homemade cookies while they are working. A cute idea is to bake sugar cookies and use a bridesmaid cookie cutter. Use decorative frosting to form the dress and facial features of the bridesmaids. Then, get a customized edible stamp that says “Will you be my bridesmaid?” You can do the same thing for your flower girls – these cookies will definitely be a hit!


•    Hand Make Invitations – If you’re a crafty person, you can easily hand make your invitations with some craft paper, beads, stamps and calligraphy pens!
Your bridesmaids and flower girls will appreciate the unique way in which you choose to ask them to be a part of your special day. The ideas above will show them that you value them enough to put in some extra time to prepare something special just for them.
