Friday Five: Creative Invitations to be a Bridesmaid

Happy Friday Everyone! A big wedding trend lately has been asking your friends to be your bridesmaid in adorably, sweet, amazing ways! (think proposing on a less grand level but with the creative-ness of a woman) This Friday five will focus on bringing you some great ways to ask your best friends to be part of your wedding!

So without further ado, here is the Friday Five, bridesmaid edition!

#1. Bridesmaid Boxes

Giving your bridesmaid an adorable box filled with goodies and a note is a sure fire way to get her to say yes!

#2. A bottle of Champagne (or her favorite wine or liquor) with a handwritten note

How could she say no to her favorite alcoholic beverage and favorite new bride?

#3. Cookies that are almost too pretty to eat

Giving your potential future bridesmaid some beautiful cookies iced with the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?” will be an offer too sweet to refuse!

#4. A Diamond RING…. pop

Popping the question to your bridesmaid with a tasty ring pop is an adorable idea to ask them to be part of your special day!

#5. A Witty Card (and maybe some flowers too)

Thanks to the bridesmaid asking trend, there are numerous other cards like this one available for sale. I think it would be a marvelous idea to attach this to a bouquet of flowers and get this delivered to your potential’s bridesmaid office or home. I mean who doesn’t love getting flowers?

And that is your Friday Five! Be sure to come back next week for your weekly dose of Friday five!

Naked (gasp!) Wedding Cakes

Okay, so it isn’t as scandalous as the title makes it sound. No, I am not talking about some naughty bachelor/bachelorette party cakes (sorry to let you down), I am talking about the newest trend in wedding cakes: Naked Wedding Cakes! For those of you who don’t have a major sweet tooth and always find yourself scraping the icing off your cake slice, this is for you! The naked cakes have icing or filling in between the layers, but little to no icing on the sides. They are beautiful, unique, and could be quite the statement at your wedding!

Be sure to check out the Georgetown Bridal Show in Georgetown, TX on February 23, 2014. There will be plenty of delicious wedding cakes to taste. You can also talk to the wedding cake vendors about getting your own naked wedding cake made! Here is the link to their page:!

Did you have a naked wedding cake? Did you love it? Was it sweet enough for you?
