I've been bitten by the wedding planning bug again. school needs to be over!

so I was making my bouquets this weekend and realized I had never officially asked anyone to be in my wedding! (neither has my man) we are having three attendants each and we both wanted to make something special to "ask" our friends to be there for us on our big day. since many of our friends live in other towns I would like them to be affordable to mail if we can't hand deliver them (which is still an option) but I'm stumped! I've been looking for hours! nothing seems fun or "us" and I as well as the man wanted to make something together that would be fun for boys and girls. this is the only thing he has expressed interest in other than the honey moon. haha. any suggestions are needed welcome and much appreciated!

Tell us more about the two of you, what you like/dislike, any hobbies? Cooking? BBQing? Sports?

What do your friends like? Any special projects you all have participated in together??

well our friends are rather diverse now that I think about it.

we want my sister and brother in law to participate. my sister is a fellow craftster and they used to own a bbq restaurant together. I want my long time friend also, she is entering med school and is very fond of music as is my fiancee's old friend ( they have played in multiple bands together ) I also want my other long time friend to come (she lives in another state) she loves horses and most other animals. my fiancee wants his brother to be the best man, he likes video games and girls. haha

anyway all of them except for my fiancee's friend and bother live out of town. I guess what we all have in common is a love and appreciation of music and creativity.

I wanted to get/make all of the attendants something to invite them to, and say thank you for being a part of our wedding. I wanted to personalize a part of the gift, but also have a common theme...

still stumped...

music...?

If you are all musically inclined, how about a home-made cd (if you don't mind singing  Cheesy) with altered lyrics asking them to be apart of your big day? Or you could write them letters using altered lyrics to get your message across. To be honest, with a med-school friend I would be inclined to post off a little anatomically-correct heart box (probably polymer clay) with the request inside, lol. But that's my wierd sense of humour. In fact I would probably alter the idea for your horse loving friend and have a little horse give birth to the wedding request.. Ok is this just getting weird?  Undecided

For your fiance's brother how about some sort of pop-up card where a scantily clad girl pops out of a playstation (nintendo, whatever his addiction is.  Wink) and requests his attendance at the wedding?

Your sister and brother in law could be invited with an altered recipe themed letter. You know 'take one sister, stir with brother in law, add generous amounts of wedding vows... etc etc'

Honestly I think I like the cd the most, it's a bit tamer and something you can do for each and it's still personal. If you don't like singing could you have someone blend together some song lyrics for a personalised message. Kinda like an audible version of a cut-up magazine ransom note I suppose.  Cheesy

How about mailing a cootie catcher with directions on how to use it? Then when they open it, it will say "You will be a bridesmaid in the near future" or something like that?

Cootie catchers are those paper fortune-teller things where you count to a certain number or spell out a color until you get to the inside flap to reveal your fortune.


You could put the same message in a fortune cookie.

Haha mine weren't ever that fancy either. I used to make them all the time, but we always just called them fortune tellers.
