    Oh, I just told them they were going to be my bridesmaids lols! Luckily they all agreed, though they can't disagree when I'm going to be best man for 2 and for one I was chief bridesmaid. And my flower girl is 3 and can't wait to be a princess so that was easy.

    But I did debate doing something for them and that photo album idea of Nicole's sounds good

    I just asked if they would be my bridesmaids but I'm putting together little care packs for them which I'll give them the day before the big day. It's going to have some lush goodies, makeup, something personalised I'm not sure what yet and of course some alcohol

    me too MrsBU2b, LOL.
    I dont have the money to be asking them in a fancy way, I just called her up and said "so youre my bridesmaid, will you lift my dress when I need a wee?" she said "yeah sure" and that was it.

    I sent them something an invite, asking them to be my bridesmaids. Just a card, nothing big. But wanting to give them a box with some jewellery, a satin robe and a personalised flute :)

    i am having a compact makeup mirror personalised with their names and asking them to be my bridesmaids, so it's fairly cheap about £10 each and its something they can keep and can use

    I sent all mine a "Will you be my Bridesmaid" card with a poem inside that I made up.

    Congratulations, you have been deemed "Pretty as can be."
    You'll look great in a frock though not as sexy as me ;)

    Will you help me keep my sh*t together as I celebrate my new forever?
    There will be great food & buckets of booze,
    Also cheesy tunes so you can bust some moves.

    As you're not only my Bridesmaid you're also our guest,
    We will pay for your shoes and even your dress.

    You simply can't say no and leave me without.
    I'll only scream and shout and childishly pout.

    So what are you waiting for? Don't delay!
    Please say YES and make my day :)

    I purchased cards for all 3 of my bridesmaids. Two of them were standard ones for my daughters, just asking "will you be my bridesmaid" and for my maid of honour - I got a card that says "Will you hold my dress while I pee" and on the inside it asks if you will be my maid of honour.

    MOH cried when she saw it

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    i brought a box and filled it with their favourite things (cheaply)

    for example one had a mini bottle of prosecco, mini y4nk33 candle, lu$h bath bomb and a bar of chocolate so it looked cute but only cost about £10. I put a poem on the top inside of the box that i found on pintr3$t too :)
