Cookie Bribery for Bridesmaids

I used to joke around that I had my entire wedding planned out, just needed Patrick to pop the question.

It was a topic of conversation that came up so often with my two best friends that I think they were getting a little tired of hearing about a wedding that wasn't actually officially a wedding yet. In fact, this might have been the last conversation I had with them in our group text the morning of the day that Patrick proposed.

As it turns out though, other than a few of the main things {time of year, city, church, pastor, band, and bridal party}... I had no idea what I wanted for my wedding. Not a clue. During our first meeting with our wedding planner, I think I used the phrase "umm, I'm not sure" or a variation of it at least two dozen times.
The good news is that both Patrick and I knew exactly who we wanted to ask to be in our bridal party. One of us {cough, cough...} has already accomplished asking her friends to be a part of our day & here's how I did it.
Remember that obsession that I have with Blue Flour Bakery cookies?

I had 8 rings, 7 dresses in bright colors, and 1 tuxedo made. Each ring had our wedding date on it and the dresses/tux had monograms or initials on them. I shipped out each package with a note to my friends, asking them to be a part of our big day.

Well... so one Maid of Honor currently lives in Cairo, Egypt so her cookies actually went to her sister {my other Maid of Honor} because apparently you can't ship things easily to Cairo. She just got a text message. Sorry, that's what you get for moving to Cairo! ;)

But everyone else received their note and cookies and said YES! Whew. How cute is my future sister-in-law with her cookie all the way over in London?

Curious about that tux cookie yet? I really wanted one of my very good friends since high school to be a part of our bridal party and luckily, so did Patrick. But I wanted to do the asking which is how he ended up with cookies, too.
