Tag: will you be my bridesmaid

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.

    This is such a sweet idea! All of my girls love in different states, but I wish we could get together like this! Simply beautiful!

Southern Weddings readers are known for wanting to squeeze every drop of fun and meaning out of wedding planning that they can, and we love that trait! So it’s not surprising that we (and you) are all about asking your best gals to join you as bridesmaids in a special way. Often this has to be done virtually, but if you happen to live close by, we love this “will you be my bridesmaid” party inspiration from Mobella Events, all done up in fabulous Lilly Pulitzer style!

Big hugs to Sivan Photography for these images!

From Mobella Events: Some of life’s most precious moments happen on the grounds of your very own home. When it was time for Katherine to ask her friends to be in her wedding party, she decided to have them over and make it a surprise. What her friends thought was going to be a fun afternoon at their bestie’s house was about to get so much more exciting!

After seating her friends at the table, Katherine unrolled a scroll with a special message: “I have my mister, but I can’t do it without my sisters! Will you be my wedding gals?” The girls were beyond excited, and of course they said yes!

Anyone recognize that signature expression? It’s none other than our own Kristin Winchester, who couldn’t have been a more natural fit for a shoot about friendship and LP!

You can see this fun day in action, too!

I’d love to hear: how did you ask your bridesmaids to stand beside you on your big day? I wrote them each a heartfelt note and stuck them in the mail!
