He popped the question, now it’s your turn… how do you ask your beloved family and friends to be members of your wedding party? My husband and I knew we wanted the planning of our big day to be as fun as possible, even though it can be stressful, expensive and a big time commitment. To start the tone off right we came up with these special boxed invitations.
For the ladies; Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, and bridesmaids, they each got a box of all things that POP; Pop Champagne, Garrett Popcorn, Pop Rocks and a bubblegum cigar. The box included a personalized note and a swatch palette to pick out their wedding attire.
When we were thinking of who would be in our bridal party, the assumption is to include the parents on both sides. I thought why shouldn’t they receive a formal invitation like everyone else. For my folks I asked if they would walk me down the aisle and for my future in-laws I asked if I could call them Mom & Dad. Tears were shed upon their opening the package and it made the introduction to our planning so very intimate, and inclusive. Both parents also received a swatch palette to mirror their attire on.
When it came to the guys; Best Man and Groomsmen, I went to a local cigar shop and was able to score a few free cigar boxes to house again a personalized note, a local batch of bourbon and a cigar.
Simple ideas but a great way to assemble your crew and engage excitement for the big day to come!
