Wow， I can’t believe I have passed the 1 year mark before mine and Kyle’s 2014 wedding! I’m pumped and so excited to get back into planning mode!
I kicked started the one year countdown by re-asking my friends to be my bridesmaids. I didn’t do anything fancy， except send out a mass email.？ Howeverfrench linen cushion covers， I was a bit more thoughtful and creative the first time I asked my bridesmaids to be in the wedding.linen pillow covers
A former colleague of mine (turned wedding planner) posted this idea to their blog (Will You Be My Bridesmaid). I fell in love with it， and wanted to do something just as thoughtful and meaningful for my friends.
So， a trip to Michaels？ left me with this：
？Inside of the box， I pasted a “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” printable I’d found on Wedding Chicks.
？I also included important details and pictures to reference for their attire.
Not all of my bridesmaids received a box (I still have 3 that I’ve yet to mail out…I know HORRIBLE!) For them， I put together a simple card with the printable and reference information； which still had the same effect. ？My Bridesmaids loved their box and card， and thought the reference materials were (and still are) very helpful.？ ？？
Since then， there have been many variations as to how to ‘Ask the Girls’.

How are you going to ask your bridesmaids？
Was there ever a more classic color palette than blue and white? It’s a combination that has stood the test of time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t interpret this perfect pairing in a more modern way. In this living room, we used solid upholstery and white walls (in Benjamin Moore’s White Dove) to create a clean, uncluttered room that lets bold drapery and a patterned rug shine.

Sometimes I have so much to share but can hardly find the time to sit down and share it. That’s exactly how I feel right now. I photograph a lot of what I do and sometimes I neglect to share it with you. Ani’s room has been “done” for several months and while I’ve shared glimpses of it in posts from parties and the holidays, I realized that I’ve never just talked about Ani’s bedroom.Ani’s room is filled with simple bedroom ideasyou can use:
