Your fiance may have popped the big question, but that doesn't mean you have to be left out of the question-asking fun. Asking your friends to be your bridesmaids might not be quite as fun as planning a proposal, but it's still pretty great. You can invite them all to brunch or to a special girls' night and present them with a little gift or trinket as you ask them to stand beside you on your big day...or keep it simple with a sweet card and a heartfelt message. Whatever option you choose, they'll be thrilled to know how much they mean to you and excited to be a part of your wedding. Here are our favorite ideas for asking your friends to be your bridesmaids.
