Bridesmaid Help: Creative Ways to Ask a Friend to be a Bridesmaid


We love weddings and more importantly, we love hearing stories on how brides asked their best girls to be in their wedding party. We’ve heard many touching (and funny) stories over the years and we can’t wait to share some of them with you.

Looking for a creative way to ask a friend to be a bridesmaid or maid of honor? Look no further, we’ve got some great ideas for you.

If your friend lives far away, rather than calling her, send her a bridesmaid card from Advantage Bridal asking her to be a bridesmaid or, make your own Will You Be My Bridesmaid card using pretty stationary or scrapbooking paper.

Does your girl have a great sense of humor? Print some pictures of ugly bridesmaid dresses  and ask her to choose the dress she’d like to wear for the wedding. Or make a collage of dresses, create a card and write something cute like “You don’t have to wear one of these monstrosities to my wedding if you’ll be my bridesmaid!” However you present it, we’re sure you’ll both have a laugh and she’ll be so relieved not have to wear one of those dresses!


8 Classic Bridal Shower Gift Ideas

You have received your invitation to the bridal shower and you’re not sure what gift to give. You may choose a gift that relates to a bigger gift that you’ve ordered from the registry, or may fit the color or theme the bride to be has given you.

If you’re still unsure, and there’s no registry list, we’ve listed fourteen bridal shower gifts you might like to consider both classic and contemporary in style:

A sweet side-by-side frame is the perfect desk accessory or bedroom ornament. After the wedding, the couple can choose their favorite photo from their wedding day to go on one side and a wedding invitation into the other.

You are getting married – Congratulations! You have already began browsing bridal magazines and boutiques and all the bridal jewelry that sparkles has been been catching your attention. Before you jump in to choosing your bridal jewellery, make sure you know what not to do so that you choose the best pieces for your unique look and perfect wedding day. Here are our list of what NOT to do when choosing your bridal jewellery:

Don’t clash with your dress

Your bridal gown tops your wedding shopping list. Choose your dress first before you commit to buying jewelry to wear with it so that you can be sure they complement each other The style, detailing and colour of your dress will all influence your jewellery choices. A one-shoulder gown is already a statement in itself. Adding a necklace will unbalance the look. Choose a spectacular pair of earrings and/or a bold cuff instead.
