Bridesmaid Proposal - Message in a Bottle

Well, in my last post I shared a little pink crocheted heart which I mentioned was part of a small gift.

Following my recent engagement, the gift was a 'bridesmaid proposal' present to my sister-in-law, Claire.  Who even know bridesmaid proposals existed?!  Not me!  But in my wedding research on Pinterest this curious idea made itself known to me.

Now, I was a bridesmaid for Claire when she married my brother nine years ago, and she's known forever that she would be my bridesmaid, if the day ever came!  So, it went without saying or asking, but I thought this would be cute and fun anyway and I knew she'd like it!

After gathering inspiration, I decided to make a little message in a bottle.  Above you can see the message rolled up inside the bottle.

The bottle was actually a favour bottle I received at a wedding years ago, and kept.  It had some Baileys in, I believe.  I decorated it with a length of white lace, secured with glue dots.  I then tied a pretty aqua ribbon around it - very simple, but I love how it looks!

I used the same ribbon to tie the scroll, and as a hanging loop on the crochet heart.  I'm currently planning aqua as the colour scheme for the wedding, with pink accents.  Rob seems happy enough to go along with this, but refuses to call it "our" colour scheme - apparently it's all mine!  The colour scheme is not an area in which he wishes to associate himself!!

I printed my message onto paper and used some gold peel-off borders from my card-making days to edge it.  (Roon and Loon are our nicknames for each other.)

Well, guess what?  She said yes!  (Like she had a choice!)  ;)

And that is as far as we've got with our wedding plans... other than viewing so many venues and still being unable to find one that we're sure about.  I hope we find somewhere soon - fingers crossed!
