I really tried to get creative when it came to asking my girls to be my bridesmaids.
I took bits and pieces of inspiration and this is what I came up with! 

-I ordered unfinished cigar boxes from Joanns 
-Avocado spray paint.
-I lined the inside with newspaper just to make it a little more diverse.
-I created a lttle flip book asking them to be in wedding, listed the girls, who they are, what they mean to me, and what I think they'll be doing at the wedding. I made a created a generalization of what their role is in the wedding. Lastly some details as far as the "dresses" go, I've chosen for them to pick out their own dresses according to the color swatches I included in the box.
-I printed off a handfull of photos of each girl and I as reminder of our friendship, and closeness in each box.
-Lastly I wrapped them up with tissue and shipped them off! 
Now I wait to hear from everyone! Hope they except my offer! :)
