"Ask Sarah" Wedding Etiquette and Advice

So you're getting married and you probably have questions.  I have answers!  Hi, I'm Sarah - a woman who is passionate about weddings. 

Ask Sarah Question:  What is a good way to ask my friends to be my bridesmaids?

Sarah: So how do you ask your girlfriends and sisters to be a part of your special day?  You can be as casual or as creative as you want.  I myself lean more towards the creative side, because you only get married once (in most cases hopefully) and want to make every detail special and memorable.  Maybe you could send an invitation to your special ladies inviting them out to a nice luncheon (or a classy & fun tea party) and have note cards ready for each girl requesting their participation in your wedding.  Ive seen really cute cards that are specific to asking to be a bridesmaid!  Maybe even write a special story and reasons why you are choosing this special person to be in your wedding.  That is something each girl would appreciate and cherish Im sure.  What a great way to start off your wedding!  You might want to have typed out or readily available a list of things (as Ive mentioned above) that each girl will be responsible for.  Remember you dont want to blind-side your best of friends and/or family with costs.  I would suggest having a note somewhere or even telling them that it is totally ok to respectfully decline this invitation, and letting them know that it wont hurt your feelings if they cannot accept.  If in fact one of your ladies does respectfully decline, this is your opportunity to see if she'd be able to participate somehow in another capacity.
