Bridesmaids

I wanted to "pop the question" to my bridesmaids in a special way, and after browsing Pinterest for weeks an idea finally developed.
I found this Etsy site with vintage silverware. [You have to read the About section of her site, it will melt your heart.] We plan on purchasing this cake cutter as a sweet treat from our special day. 
I then purchased a few mini bags of brew from a local Charleston coffee roaster (since our nuptials with be in the great city) and placed a note asking the ladies to stand next to me at the alter, deal with me when I have Bridezilla tendencies, then lovingly bring me back to Earth. 
Wrapped it all together with Jute rope from my daddy's tool box......and shipped them out anxiously awaiting the response. I am so grateful for these ladies who have been such loving friends throughout our relationship. I've always felt the bridal party should be a group who know the couple, who have witnessed their strong and weak moments, defended the relationship when others didn't, support and believe in the couple, and will be there as they grows in the future. I can say this about each one of the ladies I asked as well as the gentlemen B will have next to him. I love you a latte my wonderful bridesmaids, my sisters, and my best friends...

  21. super cute!!! I wanted to do something special for my bridesmaids too. I had a florist deliver then a replica of my bouquet and a note asking if they would carry them down the aisle for me. It was so fun to surprise them with something special. Super cute!!!

  23. How exciting Jordan! I love seeing all the creative and sweet ways brides ask their girls. I agree it should be people who have been with you and walked with you during the relationship and can attest to how incredible you two are. Can't wait for your big day!!! It's going to be SO Pinterest worthy and epic Martha Stewart. I can feel it...
