Top 5 DIY "Will You Be My Bridal Party" Gifts from Pinterest!

Blog post presented by Maddie Vilardo, of BohoBliss Designs and intern for Buffalo Indie Weddings. 

Hi everyone! My name is Maddie & I am a Communication Studies major, graduating in May. I spend most of my time designing and making jewelry. I also love to hike, hula-hoop and watch Jeopardy!

So you were asked the big question! YAY! Now it's your turn to ask your best friends and family members to stand by your side on your big day. Bridesmaids play a big role in your wedding- they help you plan, spending hours crafting with you, party at your Bachelorette and, ultimately, support you on the most important day of your life. There are so many thoughtful and creative ways to ask your closest friends to stand by your side on your wedding day. Here are my top 5 DIY "Will You Be My Bridal Party" gifts found on Pinterest! 



1. A personalized keepsake box
I love this idea because it is so easy and also something your bridesmaid can keep forever. You can find unfinished wooden boxes like this one on Etsy and decorate it however you'd like! Paint it the colors you picked for your wedding, engrave their initials or decoupage some old pictures of the two of you. Fill the box with a sweet note, some color swatches, and a nail polish or lipgloss. See the full DIY here.


2. A flip book 
This adorable flip book, illustrated by Victoria Riza, is available to be downloaded and printed right here. It's also super simple if you want to make your own design!

3. Mason Jar Gift
All of your bridesmaids are unique, so why not give them each a unique gift? Mason jar gifts serve multiple purposes- make one for your bridal party! It doesn't have to be just food. Fill it your friends' favorite things and attach a cute note. If you like the marshmallow idea, include a note like "I'll be the luckiest bride, to have you by my side!"


4. Unraveling Ribbon
Another sweet keepsake! Pick out some fun fabric that coordinates with your wedding colors and write a message that your bridesmaids can hold onto forever. 


5. Modern Day Mix Tape 
What better way to ask your bestie to be in your wedding than with a mixtape of all your favorite songs?! You know, that song you used to jammed out in the car to when you got your license... This will definitely bring back some memories of all the fun times you've shared together. There are also a ton of CD sleeves that you can personalize for each bridesmaid. 

We will have more inspiration and crafts for you at our next event, Crafts and Cocktails, on 04.30.15 at The Mansion on Delaware Avenue!

  2. Everything was spot-on perfect at our wedding. And this was due in large part to the manager and the amazing staff from Los Angeles wedding venues. Very professional staff, incredible food, spectacular view and when you felt like a guest at your wedding it cannot get any better.
