Nothing feels better than checking something off my wedding checklist, and I am excited to say all my bridesmaids are accounted for as of this week! Most of them knew offhand that they would be involved because they had heard my planning and wedding musings, however, I think I surprised a few!
I wanted to put forth a nice gesture and give my girls a gift they would be able to really use and a memento they could cherish. Inspired by this pin for wedding koozies, I played around with Illustrator and created an insert to put in the koozies that would ask the girls to be my bridesmaids. I tried to get all Lilly flamingo koozies, because the colors are very close to our theme (turquoise with coral accents) but unfortunately I had to go with a different print for my two Maids of Honor.
I wrapped the notes up in the koozies to look like a can and gave them to the girls like this:
All of the girls loved it and thankfully said yes! I am so excited to have them all and we're on a roll with dress fitting and ordering, thank goodness. I am also planning on having 5 honorary bridesmaids and wrote them each a personalized note thanking them for their friendship and asking them to be there on our big day as well.
I am so blessed to have so many wonderful young women in my life to support me and I cannot wait for all the fun that is to come!
