How I Asked My Bridesmaids

Last weekend I asked my bridesmaids if they would like to be in my wedding. I really wanted to give them something special when I asked them and it had to be original and handmade. So I searched around online looking for ideas and found the cutest poem on!

Here's how the poem goes:

"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 copied this poem into blank note cards I bought from Target and glued a glittery letter (the first letter of each girl's name) to the front of each one with Aleene's Original Tacky Glue.

Then I tied each card to a single yellow rose with a thin turquoise ribbon and voila! My bridesmaids were surprised and they absolutely loved their gift!

Here are some pictures~

Turquoise & Yellow Wedding

For awhile now I have been thinking about what colors I want to decorate my wedding with. I'm thinking turquoise and yellow?! One, because they are my favorite colors and two, because they create a great contrast.

Check out these amazing photos I found on Life. Love. Lipstick by Hugh Forte Photography. I love that she incorporated the blue mason jars with the yellow roses and daisies. The lemons used as placeholders was such a cute touch! I also like how the bouquets still had a few pink flowers in the mix to make it a little more feminine and fun.
