Wedding Wednesday: Attendant Cards

Choosing bridesmaids/people who would be a part of Josh and my wedding was difficult for me. I have a lot of VERY close friends all of whom I consider my closests and bestest. For a long time, I considered not having bridesmaids because I didn't want to hurt anyone that I love by not picking them to wear a certain dress or hold a specific bouquet. However, the more and more I thought about it, I knew that I wanted to have all of my closest, specialest and bestest ladies up there with me. Josh also has a lot of friends so together we decided to have 8 bridesmaid/groomsmen each. In addition, I have 5 special ladies who are going to be instrumental in different parts of the Mass. I am so thankful for my many friendships, and I very easily could have been like the bride in England that 80 ladies by her side. You think I am joking but I am not, and with 10 months left till the bid day I could always change my mind :)

I knew I wanted to ask my bridesmaids and special ladies to be a part of Josh and my big day with handwritten notes. In the age of all things Twitter and Facebook, there is nothing more special than receiving a handwritten note in the mail...snail mail. I searched all over the internet and Etsy for the perfect cards before I decided on these by Brittany Fuson Paper. I have liked her paper products since I first stumbled upon them through CBL, but this is the first time I made an official purchase. (Normally I just do the thing I do with ALL online shopping. I fill my imaginary cart and then leave it when it comes time to actually pay.)



I could not have been happier with the little cards. I obviously used the bridesmaids cards for my bridesmaids and I used the cards with the blinged out bride for my special ladies. Now I am ready to buy all of my sationary from Brittany. Everything on her website is so cute!




I know my friends loved them too, and I am so excited to share my special day with all of them. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many genuine friendships. Through these little notes, I was able to express how much each and everyone of my girls means to me.

I love my ladies, and I need them with me when I marry my man!

Did you do something special to ask people to be in your wedding?

  4. The photo with all the bridesmaids in a heart is a little crazy, but it is an awfully cute story.

    I too mailed out cards for my bridesmaid. I did make them myself though, so they didn't turn out nearly as pretty as yours.
