Another Wedding update!
Thanks to Angela, I update my countdown board DAILY now. 225 seems like a monumental countdown moment.
Now…onto asking the bridesmaids to join the wedding party!
When I started to think about the vibe of our wedding – classic, somewhat traditional, fairly small guest list, practical but elegant, I knew I wanted to keep our wedding party on the more intimate side.
This piece of wedding planning had me all sorts of nervous. Like, I was sort of sick to my stomach the whole day before asking my two lovely bridesmaids to join our wedding party.
I think being invited to be part of a wedding party is a huge task – I was sure they’d both say yes, but it’s still a lot to ask someone.
But I had a plan (I like plans!): I invited both of them to have sushi one Friday evening, and I wanted to offer a cute way to ask them to be in the wedding. About a month or so before our sushi dinner, I came up with this fun idea:
A handmade bracelet all tied up with a pretty bow (within the blue color palette I want for the wedding).
I adore circles, and these butterfly toggle clasps I found were just too sweet.
I made three of these bracelets, mostly so I could test drive one. I used leather cord and leather cord end caps to attach the cords to the clasps.
This was such a fun wedding project and I’m SO GLAD to have finally asked my two bridesmaids to join the party. Can’t wait for so many more wedding adventures.
