Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

When it came time to ask my bridesmaids to be in my wedding, I wanted to do it in the most original way possible. My bridesmaids are spread out all over the country so I wanted to mail them each a “Bridesmaid Invitation” with a personal touch. 
I googled and Pinterested and searched high & low to find some good ideas.. But I came up with a big fat nothing. 
That’s when I decided to get creative. I found the most amazing cookie designer on Etsy at Ali’s Sweet Tooth who made up these gorgeous cookies for each of my girls! 
I mean how gorgeous are these? Every part of the cookie is edible! She even sprayed the wording with glitter which just made the cookie sooooo pretty.
But the cookie wasn’t enough pizazz.. I needed something more. I expressed my ideas to the owner of the Etsy cookie shop and she referred to one of her fellow Etsy friends over at Crafts by Rosa. I immediately fell in love with Rosa’s work while looking through her current listings on her Etsy shop! So I messaged Rosa, gave her the info regarding the cookies being made and she came up with these personalized suitcases:
I found the saying on Pinterest, “I found my man.. But I still need my girls” and I had to use it. So I gave this saying to Rosa and she used it for my luggage tag! The suitcase was the best idea ever since most of my maids are traveling to be at my big day.
My favorite part of it is when you opened your box and read the luggage tag, you then slid open the suitcase and read “Will you be my bridesmaid?” 
I also included in each box a personal note from me which included: personal inside jokes, reasons why I want them to be my bridesmaid, crazy requests I may make, etc. Some were sappy, others were funny but all were unique in their own special way!
Hope this inspires you to be a little creative today!

    That's so sweet! literally…those cookies look tasty but I definitely would keep it as long as I could. I wish I was creative when asking my friends to be my bridesmaid, but I like your idea…makes me wonder how your whole wedding is going to be creative and beautiful!

      Hi there! I'm pretty sure that most of my Bridesmaids actually kept their cookies instead of eating them.. I can't blame them! Thanks for reading!

    Great idea πŸ™‚ could be used for so many different occasions – my kids would love to send their friends something similar for party invites! I make iced cookies so may have to start experimenting! πŸ™‚ x
