Bridal party looove

All my lovely ladies have received their cards. So as promised here's a little peak into what was in those pretty little pink envelopes I posted last time (here).

On the front of the card said, "They say I need someone to hold my dress up when I have to pee". Inside the card I asked the girls to be my maid of honor/bridesmaid. On the left side of the card I created a pocket to hold several different inserts. The first insert was titled "I promise," in which I promised them I would keep my inner bridezilla in check and ensured they would not be forced to wear a horrid bridesmaid dress. The next insert, "Expectations," listed out the events that I expected them to attend. My maid of honor is from socal and my bridesmaids are from Hawaii so I wanted to make it clear that the only events they were required to attend were the rehearsal dinner and the wedding itself. On the "Attire" insert I addressed the topic of bridesmaid dresses, hair, makeup, etc. Lastly was a "Meet the bridal party" insert in which I provided them with contact information for each other. The girls in my bridal party have all been important in my life, but they don't know each other so I thought it would be nice for them to be able to get in touch and get to know each other.

A little love for my bridal party

If you know my mother, you know that she is CRAZY creative. In fact she has graciously offered to help design, print, and cut all our pieces for our wedding invitations in order to help us cut some costs in our already over the top wedding budget. I, on the other hand am not nearly as creatively gifted as my mother. So this past weekend with a little computer know-how from Mr. Honda I squeezed out what little creative juices I have to create a little something to send out to the girls in my bridal party.

The girls I chose to be in my bridal party mean the world to me and I just wanted them to have a little reminder of why I asked them to be in my bridal party. Also, the girls don't know each other yet, so I wanted to give them a little introduction to each other. Thanks to my cousin, Lehua, whose beautiful cards to her bridal party inspired me (here and here). I hope to send them out tomorrow. I'll be sure to post more pictures of what my cards look like after the girls get them...don't wanna spoil the surprise!

Happy -1 year anniversary!

Yesterday marked exactly 1 year until the Mr. Honda and I will officially tie the knot. Just the thought of it alone sets my heart a flutter.
