We all know that no matter how much you really want your maids to be in something they can wear after the wedding day, there's a 90% chance they won't (sorry). So, I'm here to share an idea that would serve double duty for your gal pals. A little gift you can give them when you ask them to be part of your big day. It may not be a solution to the old dress debate, but it's a start to helping them plan their day of look.
Ask your gal pals over for a cocktail and some appetizers and surprise them with a gift packaged up on each setting. Pack small kraft boxes with fresh petals, add in your invitation (free printable at the end of the post!) and top with a meaningful piece of jewelry they can wear at your wedding and everyday afterwards.
I chose these pieces from Alex and Ani because they all have a story behind them which would be the perfect way to personalize to each of your friends.
I love the idea of giving the girls you care about something to stack with other pieces they love and the fact that it will always remind them of this fun time they got to experience with you! What ideas do you girls have (or maybe used already) to make this question memorable?
