Brides-To-Be Are Asking Their Friends To Be Bridesmaids In The Best Way
Bridesmaid-ing ain't easy. Besides the actual price of the dress, the parties and the plane tickets, there's the emotional trauma of watching your best friend become a stressed out mess for the greater part of a year.

To thank their best pals for supporting them, brides have begun "proposing" to their favorite ladies with small party favors, customized cards and even tiny bottles of bubbly. The whole thing is very "Pinterest-chic."
