Coffee & Honeycomb

This past weekend E and I visited Naperville to tour potential wedding venues (we decided to host our wedding in IL since family + friends still live there) as well as formally propose to our bridal party. I knew I had really special girlfriends to ask so I wanted to do so in a special way! I spent a couple of weeks researching online and viewing Etsy for festive jewelry like this one or tank tops like this one but in the end I decided it would be more thoughtful to make something myself. So, inspired by Saffron AvenueI DIY'ed my own proposal box. The goal was to make it personal to the wedding/friendship as well as useful to serve as a memory box for future photos/paper goods.

I purchased wooden craft boxes from JoAnn Fabrics, painted the top with black chalkboard paint, and then painted each bridesmaid's name with white paint over it. I also made my own stationary which included three pieces: the inspiration (colors + styles), the little note (a personal letter), and the question (a fun, cute poem). I designed the pieces in such a way that after cutting, they laid on top of each other nicely as you can see in the photo! I also included trinkets to give an overall feel of the wedding (fake greenery + pine needles) and little gifts to add themed colors (nail polish + chapstick). TA DAAA! Follow along my wedding inspiration here!

PS! The "will you be my bridesmaid" stationary shown here is now available in my shop as a printable — including all three pieces in set! If you or a friend is a bride-to-be, send them this way!
