Will You Be Mary's Bridesmaid?

As I mentioned earlier, my sweet sister celebrated her marriage this summer. Rewind to January when the wedding plans were cranked into motion. One of the first things Mary did was ask her bridesmaids to, well, be her bridesmaids. She decided to give them each a pair of earrings to wear at the wedding, along with a little poem and handwritten note. I was maid of honor (duh) and got the job of putting together these special boxes! Admittedly, my first idea was to mail each girl a piece of notebook paper that read "will u b my bridesmaid? check one." with two boxes that said "yes" or "no". This idea was much better...
