Amazing bridesmaids :)

So I still haven't officially asked my girls yet, but they are already incredible. Friday night after work, me and two of my best friends met up for a drink at a bar downtown. After about 5 minutes one asked the other, "Can I tell her"?, the second nodded and the first said, "we have a surprise for you!"

They took me to one of our favorite clubs in downtown Boston. We went up the back elevator to the club's offices, which I did not even know they had there! They took me because they were signing the contract to book the club's private room for an engagement party in January!!!! :) :)

It was such an amazing surprise. I know the club must not be cheap and I was overwhelemd that my friends were doing this for me. We were so excited, we went out for a drink at another bar close by to talk more details. Then called it an early night to come home and make the guest list. It was such a great surprise. My mother is planning an engagement party in the spring and they just couldn't wait to celebrate, neither can I! It is just going to be our friends and cousins with whom we are close and then we willl have more of a family party in the Spring. They checked in with mom too and she is all for it! She is one of the two adults invited (we were laughing because we were saying no "adults" were invited and one of my friends was like, we are adults!, a fact we like to ignore).

These girls have been so amazing along the way already. As soon as they found out we were engaged, one came over and decorated the house so when we came home it would be really cute for us. Then two that brought me Friday night made me a planning binder. They made tabs and everything to keep me organized. They searched the internet for images for each title page. For example, for the venue they printed out a picture of our actual venue. Then for the guest list section, they had a picture from wedding crashers. It was so thoughtful that they took the time to do it. They are definitely going above and beyond bridesmaid duties and I haven't even asked yet!

I am really stressing on how to "pop the question". I am going to give each girl a homemade scrapbook with different pages including memories and a letter asking them to be in the bridal party and why I want to include them.

Deos anyone have any ideas or suggestions? What are some of the ways you have asked your bridesmaids or how were you asked to be in someone else's wedding party?
