If you're a maid of honor, bridesmaid or even the mother of the bride, you want the bride to have a truly special day. You want her to have a memorable day and make it personalized. There are many ways to achieve this. Wedding and Party Network has one way that will truly make her day unforgettable while she is getting ready.

This is a great a craft and gift for the bridesmaids and even mother of the bride and mother of the groom to create for the bride. What exactly is this craft? It's basically like a scrapbook but it contains letters to the bride from each bridesmaid, close friends, mother of the bride, mother in law and a final letter at the end from the groom. This will truly make her day while she is getting ready to walk down the aisle.

What You Need:

  • Scrapbook
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Pencils, Pens, Markers
  • Scissors
  • Glitter, Stickers, Decorative Accessories

How To:

It's simple to make this. The maid of honor should be in charge of this. Make a list of who all should write a letter to the bride. Invite them over for a craft night or you hand out the scrapbook paper. Make sure to pick a theme for the scrapbook. It can be fun and crazy or a bit more elegant where she can actually display it in her home. If you're handing out the paper, make sure to give them a deadline, maybe at one of the bride's showers. Also, some people have a hard time with words so give them a bit of a guideline. Include well wishes, memorable times, inside jokes and it should be full of happiness and joy. You can also tell them to decorate their letter with different items or even pictures to make it more personable. Finally, have the groom write a letter to his future bride. She will really enjoy that.

When putting it together, just slide the letters into clear sleeves to keep the letters protected. Place her friends' letters first, bridesmaids' letters, mother in law, mother of the bride and then the groom's letter. Don't forget to decorate the front of the scrapbook as well.

This is a great way to get the bride ready to walk down the aisle. She'll love reliving memories with her friends, bridesmaids and will absolutely love reading a letter from the groom right before she walks down the aisle.
