6 Ways To Ask Your Bridesmaids

He popped the question, now it's your turn. Asking your best girls to be your best 'maids is one of the most exciting parts of the planning process. If I could do it all again, I'd be taking notes from this sweet bride-to-be who rounded up her ladies in a special "Park Date" complete with cupcakes, macaroons, and champers, brought along Laura Clarke Photography, and popped the question: "Will you be my bridesmaid?"

How To Ask Your Bridesmaids:

1. MAKE IT PERSONAL

Give your girls something that they will have forever - and will always remind them of the special day you asked them to be a part of your biggest day!

From the bride-to-be... "I wanted to give them something that they could have for years to come. Tie in that I'm a big fan of romantic, traditional keepsakes, I thought a handkerchief would be something sweet and would also be unique to our friendships."

2. MAKE IT SPECIAL

Throw a special little party! As if you need a reason to celebrate with your girls.

From the bride-to-be... "I'm also a big fan of parties and celebrations so I knew I had to ask them in a celebratory way with us all together. With the park across from my condo being our typical landmark, gathering and starting point to most of our events, I knew that it was the perfect location. So I asked the girls to all come to a little 'Park Date'."

3. MAKE IT YUMMY

Treats are a must, no matter what the event. And a gathering of all your favorite ladies definitely calls for a gathering of all your favorite treats.

From the bride-to-be... "Knowing how much we all love sweets, it was full of desserts and champagne. I ordered cupcakes, macaroons and meringues from a favorite shop of ours, Bobbette & Belle."

4. MAKE IT PRETTY

We're always advocates of blooms, and this is no exception!

From the bride-to-be... "Since no celebration is complete without flowers, I picked up some colourful stems from Florabunda also in pink tones."

5. MAKE IT BUBBLY

Celebrate this special occasion right, don't forget to bring the bubbly (and maybe a few pretty straws to sip from).

From the bride-to-be... The celebration kicked off with a champagne toast which lead into asking the girls to be my bridesmaids. Each girl unwrapped their handkerchief and they were a huge hit and surprise!"

6. MAKE IT FUN

Bring along your favorite photographer and practice your smile. You're all going to appreciate the camera warm up come wedding day - and what better way to remember the day!

From the bride-to-be... "After all the hugs we had some more bubbly and proceeded to our mini photo shoot. Not only was I able to spend more time with my friends but I was also able to show them how much they mean to me and now we have these wonderful photos to look back on for years to come!"
