will you be my bridesmaid?

When Jill got engaged a few months back, I knew that fun days were ahead. I already assumed I had dibs on everything photography related, but I called it just in case. (Except the wedding – that would be kind of hard considering I’m in it and all…) She took me up on my photography offer much sooner than I expected with an idea of how to ask friends to be part of the wedding. As we were out scoping venue locations, we brought her idea to life through photos, and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. Here are the photos we took:






Too bad we didn’t have a question mark to go with it! We formatted the photos to be 5″ square and strung them together to spell out the big question. WILL YOU BE MY BRIDESMAID? I love, love, love how the card turned out. What do you think?


The coolest part is that it is folded like an accordian which means that when you hold it in your hand it is a small 5″ square, but stretches out when unfolded so you can see all of the images together. The back was blank so Jill could write personalized messages to each girl asking them to be part of her and Nathan’s big day. Mine was more like a thank you since I kind of already knew I was invited, and the card wasn’t a surprise to me. The good news is that everyone said yes (duh!). Jill has chosen a wonderful group of girls to stand with her and support as she says “I do”, and I’m looking so forward to next May!



Sara Absolutely love this idea! Where did you find the accordian paper?May 1, 2014 – 4:07 pm

Jill I really do have the best friends in the whole world – I’ll prove it to you someday, maybe I will get a hold of amanda’s password and blog about how I would be lost without all of her help and advice with the wedding planning.August 19, 2009 – 11:48 am
