I love nothing more than getting a letter in the mail. I wanted to do something special to ask four lovely ladies to be my bridesmaids and while a phone call (with the squealing and jumping up and down) would usually be best, I thought it would be nice to add a little formality to their days.
I bought this lovely robin's egg cardstock and a gold calligraphy pen. I wish my handwriting were better; I struggle mightily with cursive. But the best part was getting to use a wax seal, complete with the letter "K" for my future last name. I purposely didn't put my return address on the envelopes because I wanted my girls to get the letters and be like, "What the what?!"
They all seemed surprised and maybe a little confused about how to proceed, but that's okay. Sarah was like, "I figured I should send you a card that said 'Yes.'" LOL. But now they have little keepsakes for their scrapbooks.
