Our Etsy Find of the Week this week is all about a fun idea that’s cropped over recent years, and is sticking around as a trend in a big way.
The “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” card.
A sweet, funny, novel way to ask your bestie to be part of your wedding, while also making it a little bit official.
This cool collection of printable cards by 51Fold plays on the idea (and sometimes the fact!) that bridesmaids are required to be their bride’s skivvy for the day, helping them into their dress, holding their bouquet, keeping watch for make-up malfunctions and yep, even holding up their dress to help them pee.
I know when I was maid of honour for my best pal, all modesty went out the window!
So I just love how these cards tell it like it is.
“Yep, I might boss you about, I might stick you in a dress you hate but heck, it will be an honour to do it!”
51Fold is a design studio based in Phoenix, Arizona, who create beautiful printables for weddings, birthdays, baby showers and Christmas.
Because their items are almost all custom-made, and sent as an email file, you can request something you don’t see in the Etsy shop without any hassle or too much added expense.
As printables, these bridesmaid invitations couldn’t be easier to buy. All you have to do is make your order, request any custom details like names, dates or colours, and 51Fold will create your design and email you the file.
The cards themselves are 5.5″ x 4.125″, cost just $5.00/£3.28 which will fit in a standard envelope.
Each order takes just 24 to 48 hours to process and arrive in your inbox. Handy!
