Happy Thursday everyone! It's almost the weekend!
Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on our Charleston engagement pictures! We had a great time with them and I love how they turned out. A few people have asked me where I got my pink dress. It's from the Banana Republic Mad Men collection. I got it back in March. I have seen a few very similar dresses so if you are in the market for a hot pink dress let me know and I'll direct you :)
Today I'm going to show y'all how we asked our friends to be in our wedding party!
We have seven bridesmaids and seven groomsmen!
Each one of them is so important to us and we are thrilled to have them all be a part of our big day.
The first thing I did for my bridesmaids' cards was make the little accordion ladies like so many of us have seen on Pinterest. They took forever (especially to make 7!) but they turned out so cute I'm really glad I made them. Everyone seemed to really like them!
I also included mason jar "will you be my bridesmaid?" cards I ordered from The Blue Envelope on Etsy. I love how they turned out!
For the ladies I don't get to talk to as often as I'd like, I wrote some of the wedding details on a palmetto moon notecard and sent that along with the accordion ladies and mason jar card.
And lastly, I packaged it all up together with a pink bellyband and sent them on their way!
They all loved them and they all said yes!
For Zach and his groomsmen, we got each guy a huggie with the palmetto moon on it (the palmetto moon will be a recurring theme in our wedding ;) ) and sent them to each of his groomsmen with a little Charleston card and a personal note Zach wrote to each of them. Guys are a little more low-key about wedding parties than girls are but it was important to me that Zach asked his groomsmen in a special way. It's a big commitment to be in a wedding and I want them to all know how glad we are that they are standing with us on the big day! Although Zach probably would have preferred to just call them, I think they all liked getting a little present in the mail and they all also said yes!
The members of our wedding party are:
Bridesmaids: Chelsea (maid of honor), Amanda, Emily, Caitlin, Mary Catherine, Brianna, and Danielle
Groomsmen: Shawn (best man), Scott, Jonathon, Dan, Kevin, Jim, and Andy
