Will you be my...

Well, I guess we should formally announce that one of the Dinner Club MD bloggers has recently become engaged (Me). You will soon see multiple posts regarding the upcoming plans of our wedding. We are not getting married until April, 2011, but I am a DIY girl, so I have decided to start planning early. One of the first big tasks (besides finding the man of my dreams) was to ask the women who will stand beside me on the actual day, and support our marriage throughout the years to come. I wanted to ask my bridesmaids in a creative way, so I did the following:

I ordered bridal stationary from the ever chic Preston Paper Sarah-Allen Preston is the designer behind this adorable stationary line. She can personalize any of her designs, and it's adorable! (She also threw in this adorable notepad. If you can't read it, it says: 'To do, before I do'...how cute!)

Fold over cards in the same design: ( I included a personal message to all of the bridesmaids to express my love for them and the reasons why I feel they should be by my side as I marry my best friend).
Finally, I gave them each The Bridesmaid Guide. It was a fun way to show my appreciation for the part they will play in our wedding.
I hope you enjoy the first of many wedding posts. TGIF!
