Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

About 3 weeks ago, I officially asked my sister and 2 best friends to be my bridesmaids. They all knew that they were the chosen ones but I wanted to make it special for them and formally ask. I want to do a lot of DIY (do it yourself) projects for the wedding because A. it's cheaper and B. I feel like it becomes more special when you do it yourself. I'm also a graphic designer so I think it's silly if I pay someone to design something for me. I found this cute idea when I was bored one day at work: DIY Bridesmaid Cards

I went to a local scrapbook store, Oh Scrap! to find all of the paper I needed for the cards. It was super easy and only took me about 2 hours to complete. Total Cost: $8

I surprised my girls by hand delivering their cards with flowers. They were all freaked out when I showed up with flowers but then when they realized what it was and they squealed with giddiness. This is everyones first wedding they'll be in. Wahooooo!

Next up, bridesmaid dresses! Should I go yellow dress with a hint of black or black dress with a hint of yellow? And if you know of any local Charlotte places, let me know!

Here are the bridesmaid cards. Aren't they cute?!
