So you’re planning your wedding… Yipee! You’ve even decided which loved ones (female or male) you wish to have by your side when you say “I Do”. But what’s next? Usually Triple B brings you the 411 on all things weddings however today the script is being flipped and you’re answering the tough questions. What is the most appropriate way to ask someone to be your bridesmaid or is there one?
Is it a simple phone call? A handwritten note card? A face-to-face conversation over brunch or cocktails? What about email or text messaging? Or does it depend on the circumstances? (My vote is on the latter.) Do you have a completely different suggestion?
Perhaps it is because of my own recent engagement but this topic has been on my mind as of late and I recall an engaged colleague being plagued with the same “dilemma” a few years back. Now let’s be clear — there are much bigger matters to ponder in life like deciding whether or not to homeschool your children or learning to cope with a parent’s early signs of dementia. But this is a bridal blog so all things bridal are covered. And there’s no judgment here at Triple B so please weigh in honestly.

Now tell me: How did you or do you plan to ask your friends and family to be part of your bridal party?
