When the Hubbard and I were first engaged, I knew pretty quickly who I wanted to stand by my side on the big day. My sister and maid of honor was asked via phone as soon as we were engaged! I wasted no time in telling her and the news and sharing that exciting season.
For my other bridesmaids, I sent out a card that I made to each one via snail-mail over the break. My college roommates did not expect the "proposals" because I had mentioned to them previously that I wanted to have my future sister-in-laws with me and that I prefer smaller wedding parties. It was fun to answer the phone when they finally received their cards and to hear the excitement in their voices.
If I were to do the whole thing over again, I would probably send my bridesmaids these cards (my sister would still get the phone call. Some things can't wait!) with a personal note inside. The heart shape makes this otherwise typical question a work of art.
These cute little cards are available for printable download in the shop. No need to wait for delivery, simple select, checkout and print!
