I really wanted to make asking my bridesmaids to stand up to my wedding a special thing. I hand wrote each of them a card explaining how they had been a significant part of my life, and also included a little gift. I am creating a card to go with my hangers that would be a fun way to ask your bridesmaids to stand up. Giving a pearl beaded hanger, or a crystal beaded hanger is a fun gift for your bridesmaids, and in the card you could include "now you just need the dress..." kind of a tongue and cheek statement since they have the hanger, they just need to bridesmaids dress to put on it. I think every aspect of your wedding is special, why not make asking your bridal party an memorable event.
