Bridesmaid Cookies

I took the first steps into planning my wedding this week, I asked the lovely ladies who I had picked out to be my Bridesmaids to actually be my Bridesmaids. I did it in a slightly different way to the usual method of just asking. I wanted it to be extra EXTRA special the way I asked them and was very pleased when a idea popped into my head. The idea came to me as I was writing my Lemon Meringue Cupcake post for Amy's Bake It. Amy is a very talented lady, she makes lots of fantastic cakes and sweet treats, has her very own shop called Cake Shop Corner and has even wrote her very own book - .

Everyone loves cookies right? So I thought why not ask Amy if she could design some cookies asking the simple message of 'Will you be my bridesmaid'. I was so pleased when she replied saying that would love too and that it was a great idea. She even made a 'Will you be my flower girl' for my flower girl Top Ender.

And the handy thing is that my bridesmaids just happen to be bloggers! So of course I knew the cookies had arrived when I was tweeted and saw blog posts with photos of these cookies, why I didn't send myself one is beyond me. Amy did a fantastic job of them and were exactly what I pictured! Go and look at Kerry's post to see her surprise and Pippa's post to see why a cookie made her cry. Vic also got one, I knew she had when she turned up to my door that evening with crumbs around her mouth. Hers asked her if she would be my maid of honour, I'm sure I'll be regretting this come the hen night and I'm faced with a male stripper. Nah I'm sure it will just be a quiet sleepover with the girls in our pjs..

So far this wedding planning lark is kinda fun and not as painful as I imagined it to be, though I'm sure it wont be long until I turn into Bridezilla!
