Last Friday during my bridesmaid brunch I popped the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?” and of course my ride and die gals said YES! I am so happy that my girls enjoyed my bridesmaid gift that I put together! I got a lot of ideas from Pinterest of course, but I wanted to personalize them myself. I decided to create them on my own by getting what I liked most from the different ideas and putting it all in one. With wedding plans and budget planning I knew I wanted something cute, unique, appreciated, and affordable! My total cost for my five Bridesmaid gift was less than $100.
Brunch: Birdie Bistro
I wanted to meet up with the girls somewhere we hadn’t been and had good recommendations, so I found Birdie Bistro located in McAllen Texas and what caught my eye was their brunch menu! I love the outdoor seating and a HUGE thank you to Birdie Bistro for allowing me to host my bridesmaid brunch upstairs in their patio! Their food was freaking delicious and I totally recommend their mimosas and Belgian waffles! I was impressed with their service; their waiters took care of us and I had such a great first experience there. I plan to go back again and I recommend you stop by if you if you live or visit the Rio Grande Valley.

Tips and free downloads for my bridesmaid gift idea
I already own sticker paper (found mine at Staples) and printed my wine logo “Will you be my bridesmaid?” on the sticker paper. After that simply cut and paste!

I created my own Save the Date for my bridesmaids because I wanted to include my wedding palate theme. I used the color schemes from Lowes and I used a box cutter to cut out the squares on my save the date and pasted the color schemes. This was a lot more work than I anticipated so if you have the patience, go for it! After pasting the color schemes, I had to glue another white paper to cover the back to make it look clean. I originally wanted to glue magnets behind the save the dates, but my darn glue gun wasn’t working. My suggestions would be to add a magnet and if you don’t want the hassle of cutting and gluing the color schemes just add your wedding colors on each square before printing out.
