You’ve got your man, now you need your girls.
One of the most exciting (but also stressful) times of my life was wedding planning. I could finally move beyond Pinterest boards and start turning my dream into a reality. But before I could start trying on wedding dresses and cake tasting, I had to find the cutest way to ask my girlfriends to be my bridesmaids. Afterall, I couldn’t do all of this on my own. After hours and hours of Pinteresting and Googling, I couldn’t decide on just one gift for my maids. That’s when I figured I would make personalized bridesmaid keepsake boxes. There’s no better way to ask your best friends to stand by your side on your wedding than an adorable box full of personalized goodies.
For my own set of bridesmaid boxes, it literally took me days to finish painting, sealing, and stuffing them. By the end of the week, all I could think of was, “I wish I could’ve just bought these. It would’ve made things so much easier.” After all that hard work, I just had to take some pictures of it. On a whim, I decided to post the photos to Etsy and see if I could help others make their own customized keepsake boxes. That’s when the Bridesmaid Box was born. Turns out, the normal brides don’t have an entire week of wedding planning dedicated to painting coat after coat and running around all over town trying to fill their own boxes. After some trial and error, I’ve developed a cute and easy way to customize, create, and fill your own Bridesmaid Box and have them delivered to your doorstep.

The first step is to choose your Primary Color and Secondary Color. The Primary Color is the color on the upper lid portion of the box. The Secondary Color is the color of the bottom base portion of the box. Here are the available color options:
You can also customize the chunky glitter on the interior upper lining. The available options are gold and silver.
Step 2: Select the roles.
We can customize the boxes to any role for your wedding. On our website, we offer the following roles: bridesmaid, maid of honor, matron of honor, junior bridesmaid, and flower girl.
Step 3: Add decorative filler.
The next step is to add filler in the color of your choice. Most brides like to choose a color that either matches the Primary Color or matches their wedding color scheme.
It comes with 0.5 ounces of decorative filler in the color of your choice. Not only is it pretty and great as a gift filler, but it is also easy to use, ideal for protecting gifts for transport and shipping, and easily expandable with a little fluffing! All matte colors are made of recycled paper. Gold and silver is a metallic foil shred made out of mylar material, giving it a pop of color and shine.
