I heard of people hand making cards for each BM...just go to a craft store and get the materials....I thought that was a creative and cute way to ask. They have cute poems you can find online too to add to the card...poems asking the girls to be your BM. I'm not sure of the sites but do a google search.

Yep, one idea was to go to Michael's and make somthing cute using words like "sister" and "friend", customizing it with my theme (eg leaves for fall). Unfortunately we haven't booked yet so it will be a few more weeks...a friend of mine sent out little land's end bags with her bm's initials, filled with goodies and a letter asking them to be in the party. I was also thinking of getting measuring tape (but making it cute), and writing out "will you be my bridesmaid" or something like that...ideas please!!

Hey girls,
I made Will you be my bridesmaid/maid of honor cards. I posted them on here a while ago. Then I bought a dress and shoe cookie cutter off of ebay and I made sugar cookies and decorated them with homemade icing. They came out really cute and all my girls loved them!!!

I had all the girls over for a big brunch at my house, and on each chair was a note card, that i wrote something personal for everyone, as well as a mongrammed tote bag on everyones chairs. I also go these cute candles that said "thank you bridesmaid" which were engraved on them!
Everyone had a good time....

i'm not that great at DIY projects, but i did like the way my "will you be my BM?" bags came out. I bought bags and supplies from Michael's and stationery from Hallmark. I designed the outside of the bags, and then on the inside on pretty wedding stationery I printed a beautiful poem asking them to be my BM or MOH. (I think I found the poem on ultimatewedding.com, I know I searched ask.com for "Will you be my BM poems")
I filled the bags with manicure kits, chocolates, small notebooks & colored pens (for ideas), and a bottle of asprin!! LOL here's a rought pic of it:

I sent them all poems:

The day, the dress
The bride, the groom
The joy, the tears
Will all come so soon

Professing true love
To my husband-to-be
With family and friends
All watching me

I hope the sun will
Be shining down,
Keep your fingers crossed
That I'll fit in my gown…

But there's just one more thing
that there needs to be…
and that's to have you
Standing with me!
Will you be my bridesmaid?

I got each of my bridesmaid a box of chocolates from Godiva and a personalized card. Not too creative but I thought it was personal and thoughtful and they all seemed to love it.
