Bridesmaid Box

Parting with these boxes was not easy, but I was so happy to give one to each of my bridesmaids (and flower girl!) at at our "bridesmaid orientation" yesterday! I can't wait to share more photos from the actual get-together later this week. 

I had seen similar "bridesmaid boxes" on Pinterest and was inspired to do my own version. Each box was individually decorated in the colors of my wedding. Inside, I put together a little "information packet" that included...
  • A list of the bridesmaids & contact info (name, phone #, email, twitter)
  • A list of the groomsmen 
  • Wedding Day details
  • Important dates
  • The official wedding hashtag 

Each box also contained a framed picture, a box of sweethearts with a custom label, and nail polish. The boxes, paint, lace, wooden letters, gold glitter glue, clothes pins, ribbon, flowers, and frames all came from Hobby Lobby. The nail polish is from Forever 21. I created the design of the info packet and candy label myself. 

Making these boxes was truly one of the funnest craft projects I have ever done! I've always loved making personalized gifts for loved ones, so it was a no-brainer for me to do something special like this for my bridesmaids! 

I love being able to share my wedding journey with you! Thank you for reading!
