I have officially been engaged since last November and I hadn’t OFFICIALLY asked all my bridesmaids to be in my wedding yet!
I knew I wanted to do something very personalized. I decided to go with a DIY Bridesmaids Box full of goodies for them to use for a long time to come. Here is what I put together for my four girls. Our colors are mint + peach + gold – so I knew I wanted to keep that theme going with the boxes I created.
Some of my favorite items:

I wanted to lay out all the details about our wedding, so the girls would know everything up front. I laid out my info in Word.
I wanted to let them know what the “role” of bridesmaid meant to me. It doesn’t mean someone who plans a shower, a bachelorette party, or someone that tags along to every wedding-related appointment for the next year. Truly, I don’t want any of those things! Their role is to know that I love them, how much I’ve appreciated their presence in my life, and that I couldn’t imagine the biggest day of my life without them next to me every step of the way. In short: wear a great dress, wipe away my tears (because that will happen) and have an amazing time!
I had so much fun putting these boxes together for my girls! I plan on taking every chance that I have to do something fun and craft every step of the way for this wedding and clearly, asking my girls was no exception! I wanted the details of the box to be personalized, so the monogram tote and tumbler was perfect!

I have to admit these boxes took awhile to assemble & create. Between decorating the glitter champagne bottles to picking out paint chip samples, they were definitely time consuming. But they are well worth the time! The look on their faces when I gave them the boxes made it worth it, for sure.
