Will You Be My Bridesmaid???

Every girl likes to feel important. At least I hope so, since I’ve decided to start speaking for the female gender. Anywho, why not put in a little extra effort and make your favorite girls feel extra special by planning a really cool and creative way to ask them to stand by your side on your big day?

Sweets

LOVE this idea from The Sweet Divine! If you haven’t had the pleasure of tasting The Sweet Divine‘s cupcakes you can find their beautiful white, black and pink food truck traveling the streets of Saint Louis and they are quickly preparing for the opening of their flagship store coming soon! They also have really unique and yummy flavors! A little drunken pig anyone?

So, if everyone likes to eat as much as I do (which I’m assuming you come close), then who wouldn’t want to get a big, beautiful, yummy, sweet cupcake from their best friend, sister or daughter asking them to be there for one of the most important days of their lives?

All Inclusive Box

I’m sure most of you have gotten a glimpse of this next idea. I love this because you can tell a lot of work went into it, it’s extremely organized AND you give your ladies all the juicy details from the beginning which I’m sure they will LOVE!

Bethany purchased a few unfinished Cigar boxes, gussied them up a bit and filled them with all the necessary details for her bridesmaids to get to work. Inexpensive, thoughtful and so adorable, head over to Rinse. Repeat. for all the details on how she made her’s and how to get started on your own! This is such a fun and unique way to ask your favorite  ladies to be part of your special day. A lot of work is involved, but your besties will love it.

Cards

There are also a lot of great card options out there that range from sweet and sincere to beyond hilarious. A great card is a wonderful way to ask your ladies who aren’t exactly in driving distance. Pop one of these puppies in the mail and let your girl know to expect something exciting in the mail. These adorable cards would be ideal for your in town chica’s too. Take them to lunch, woo them by talking about their many talents and good looks and present one of these lovely cards. It will also be exciting for them to have some reminder of how important they are to you to keep forever and always :)

This one is my personal fav, more or less because I feel like this is the perfect options for my friends and myself.

Drink of the Week: Mango-Grapefruit Palomas

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

May is for tequila. That’s all there is to it. Even beyond Cinco de Mayo, if you are a tequila lover like myself, you’d know how refreshing it is for a warm sunny spring day. Why not try it for your wedding drink? I hope everyone has big plans for celebrating this weekend!
