“Will You Be My Maid Of Honor?
You’ve been so important in my life,
That when my happy day comes by,
I need you by my side,
For whenever I may cry.
My Maid of Honor is special,
Someone I can trust,
We share a unique loving bond,
That is forever within us.“
- The Cutie Approach. Give her a cute little stuffed teddy bear with a note “Will you be my maid of honor?” – This works well if you are asking your sister to be your maid of honor.
The Chic Approach. Asking someone to be your maid of honor in a stylistic, elegant way is also another good approach. Make a box that contains a picture of her maid of honor gown, add a bangle or a bracelet and then place a card inside that says “Will you be my maid of honor?” If you can, make a miniature maid of honor gown and include it inside, add the bracelet or bangle and you have a chic way of inviting her to be your MOH.

The Chef’s approach for your special friend. Make some miniature cakes and add a small banner with the phrase asking her to be your maid of honor as your cake topper. Of course, don’t forget to include the card with your mini cakes.
- The Storybook Approach. Make a scrapbook or a small story book of how you met your best friend and how you have known each other as friends and recall the wonderful times you spend together. Add pictures if you can. At the end of the book, write what you like most about her and at the very last page, invite her to be your maid of honor.
Decipher-It Approach. Have a collage of pictures of you and your groom or a fun picture you have together with the friend you want to invite and make it into a puzzle. There are lots of websites that can help you with this. puzzlematic.com is one good place I can recommend. Then make a 24-piece puzzle out of that collage. Don’t forget to include the text ‘will you be my MOH’ or ‘please be my MOH’ – texts like that. Then send the box to your friend. She will get the message as soon as she completes the puzzle. Isn’t it a creative idea in asking friends to be your maid of honor?
