When you are thinking of asking your bridesmaids to be in your wedding, this can be a great opportunity to do something that matches the theme and vibe you want to achieve with your wedding. It can start to get the ball rolling in your creative process, and can become a unique personalized gift for your bridesmaids!
So when I was thinking of what to do for my girls, I immediately thought of … you guessed it… Mason Jars 🙂
I wanted it to be simple, but personal, and I knew our wedding would be more rustic and have mason jars in the decor, so this is what I came up with.
I started with collecting different mason jars and then printed pictures with each girl and placed them in the mason jar as a kind of picture holder.Then I wrote a note to each girl telling them why they were important to me and why I wanted them to be a part of this journey with me. I placed this in the jar behind the picture.
I thought it would be fun to make the card lead them to open up something else that “popped the question”. So, I had some natural fabric at home and I cut this into small strips (about an inch wide, but a rough cut) and I used my letter stamps to stamp out the message to each girl.
See how it looks all rolled stretched out?
Then I rolled it up into a ball, tied it together with some twine and put it in the bottom of the mason jar.And just for fun, I topped it off with tying twine around the top of the jar, and painted the lid with chalkboard paint so I could write each girl’s name.
It was really fun to create something for my bridesmaids and I was glad I did something that fit our wedding theme. And the mason jars can be reused for vases!
I hope this helps to get the creative juices flowing when thinking of fun ways to ask your bridesmaids to be in your wedding. This can also be done for any type of gift too – and stay tuned for a post on a Mason Jar Shower Gift idea!
