One of my favorite "wedding tasks" I've checked off the list is asking my bridesmaids to be a part of our wedding. I am so lucky to have the COOLEST and BEST friends, and I'm really excited that such a wonderful group of ladies will be with me on the big day. I wanted to do something special that my bridesmaids would remember, but do feel the need to mention that I sort of got hung up on making the gift really creative and custom. I actually am pretty sure I said, word for word, that I was "paralyzed by Pinterest." (Hey, with so many cute ideas like this and this, can you blame me?) Anyways, my disclosure is out there - my need to make it "pin-worthy" delayed the process by months a bit and I realize that I absolutely could have called them each individually on the phone and just straight up asked. 

But, I stuck with my guns and did something awesome: 

One thing I can always count on my friends for is to enjoy a delicious, icy cold can of Sofia. If you haven't seen it before, it's canned Sofia champagne from the Frances Coppola winery... AND EACH CAN COMES WITH A STRAW. It's the actual best. If anyone comes to visit, you can bet that the fridge is stocked. 

With a little help from Tim (who, as far as I'm concerned, is a design and Photoshop expert), custom Sofia labels were created to match the original box and we pasted them (using spray adhesive) directly on top of the label. I have to say, they looked SO real! When Lindy opened hers, she said "oh, yum!" and didn't even notice that it said her name. I would call that my proudest moment, probably. 

I didn't do a very great job of photographing them all together before they went in the mail, but wanted to share here in case there are any other brides who are overzealous Sofia fans like me. My only other suggestion is stocking your own fridge (or purse) so that you can "cheers" once they receive them!


  1. Great idea! I too love these little cans of champagne!

  2. You did such a great job! and the straws definitely are the same part of the Sofia cans :)

  3. Such a sweet idea! I love seeing all of the creative ways women are asking their friends to be apart of their weddings.
