Whelp, if you’re reading this blog, you’re probably stumped for a creative way to ask your bff to be a bridesmaid. I’m glad you’re here, heck I’m excited to share a few tips, pictures, and ideas with you! Before you starting making these cute DIY {do it yourself} projects, sit back and think about the following:

Who: Make a list with the names of all the possible candidates.

What: The “what ifs” think about the events that will be leading up to your wedding {dress shopping, the bridal shower, bachelorette party, and so forth}. Is one of your bffs pregnant, is she in active military, is she looking for a new job; these can be great what if questions to say what if she can’t make it on my wedding day. Trust me this is not being selfish, it’s actually being considerate, by not putting them in an uncomfortable situation forcing her to say yes.  Another great one is don’t ask her because she asked you to be her bridesmaid last year.

Where: True story: we currently have a client that asked someone to be her bridesmaid, the problem is she did not know this chick {or should I say drama queen}. Her maid of honor is roommate with this bridesmaid so she felt obligated to ask her to be a part of the wedding party. Don’t do it, you’ll regret it! Think about where you know this person from…

When: When was the last time that person had your back, allowed you to vent without interrupting you, politely brought you back to reality, or just showed that they really care about you? The days leading up to your wedding should not be about them, it’s your day. They should be able to suck it up and do what would make you & your beau happy, even if it means they don’t like the style of the dress they have to wear or who they have to be escorted down the aisle by.

Why: This is simple, ask yourself why. “Why do I want to ask her to be your bridesmaid?
