From trips to wedding gown boutiques to the bachelorette bash, you’ll soon be adding to the already long list of treasured memories you have with your best girls, so what better way to ask them to join you on that journey than with a customized picture frame? For an added touch, send it with the oldest picture of the two of you that you can find, and after the wedding give them a photo from the wedding day to replace it with.

Who doesn’t love to be pampered now and then? Show your bridesmaids how much they mean to you by sending them a box of spa goodies to ask them to join the wedding party! Customizable soaps, candles, bath salts and lotions are a lavish and fragrant way to treat the ladies who will stand by your side the day you say I do.

If you’re looking for surprises, noise and laughter, this is definitely the option for you! Of all the things your best friends might expect when they open a box, a balloon that says, “Pop Me!” might not be high on their list. But watch their confusion turn to glee as they pop the balloon and, under a rain of confetti, find a note asking them to be your bridesmaid!

For a bride on her wedding day, the friends standing next to her can be just as important as the one to whom she is saying, “I do.” Celebrate your bridesmaids-to-be by making memories that will last a lifetime from the moment they join your bride tribe and beyond.
