Asking my Bridesmaids

Just wanted to stop in for a quick wedding planning update, as I haven't done one in a while! 

One of the things I hadn't ever thought about until I was engaged was how I was going to ask my bridesmaids to be a part of my wedding. After much contemplation, I decided I really just wanted to ask them - nothing fancy or over the top. But then, when browsing other wedding-related items on Pinterest, I saw these wine bottle labels, and knew I had to find something similar. 

After hunting around a bit on Etsy, I found the perfect option. A seller who made high-quality labels, with my customization in mind, without investing too much money. 

I spent some time around the holidays picking the perfect wine for each girl. Then I got to ask 4 of the 5 girls in person (one of my bridesmaids lives in New Jersey right now, so I carefully packed up her bottle and shipped it her way). Here's me with my sis as I asked her to be my Maid of Honor:

Did you do anything special to ask the members of your wedding party to participate? If you aren't yet married, do you think you will do something unique? Any favorite ideas you've seen so far? 

I promise to include a few more wedding details in the coming months, although I'm doing my best to keep some items of the big day a secret until they happen!
