Tag: asking your bridesmaids

We feature inspiration shoots here and there on the blog, and boy do we love them when they’re done right! They’re a great way to share creative, beautiful, and fun ideas. But you know what we really love? When we see y’all take those ideas and use them as a springboard for real-life events with those you love most. That’s exactly what our reader Bri did when she created a special celebration to ask her best friends to stand beside her as bridesmaids. In her email, she reminded me of how wonderful it is that an engagement gives us these opportunities to “celebrate along the way,” and I couldn’t agree more!

This is the point of inspiration, friends. Our fondest hope is that you’ll take the inspiration shoots we share and not necessarily create magical, perfect images from your own events, but create events that feel magical and perfect to the people in attendance. I’m guessing this is a night Bri and her friends will remember for a long, long time, and I hope it inspires y’all to go make your own magic!

I used heirlooms for this dinner, including my mom’s china, my grandmother’s glass, and my great-grandmother’s silver. Each gal received a handwritten keepsake when I asked her to stand next to me on the most important day of my life. I also asked them my question on the family property where I’ll be married. It was seven Southern women coming together on a hot summer night with a sunset for the books, and it was an evening full of magic I will never forget.
