How did you ask your MOH?

Dinner, flowers? Ugly dress in a box?

I'm at loss how to make it funny.

TIA

    I'm not sure if my way was that funny, but I made a little booklet and put it in an envelope filled with TONS of heart-shaped confetti (so when my MOHs and BMs opened the envelope they would get a bunch of confetti all over themselves).

    The booklet had their name on the cover with a heart made out of rhinestones, then the next page was a "will you be my MOH/BM?" poem, then the following pages were FAQ type of stuff (wedding colors, stuff I had in mind, basic Bio sort of stuff).  I asked each girl at a few different places, I had a little party where 2 of my local girls came over to my place and I had hor'dourves, cupcakes, and booze and I surprised them with the envelopes.  Then for another local girl (who couldn't come to the party) I had her meet me at a Starbucks at Pike Place, then we strolled around and had a good day together.  My FSIL (who lives on the East Coast) was visiting Portland, and I asked her over breakfast at this cute funky brunch place while FI and I were down there visiting her.  And I mailed my MOH (who lives in ATL) her envelope, and we talked on the phone for hours the evening she received it.

    I spent A LOT of time doing this for my 3 BMs and 2 MOHs, like weeks for 1-2 hours a day (usually while I was watching SYTTD).  It was really fun, and I would recommend it if you're at all crafty.

    My MOH was basically a given because she's my sister and we're incredibly close, but to officially ask her (and to ask my two other bridesmaids from Seattle), I arranged a little "spa evening" at the nail salon by my work. I invited all 3 girls without telling them why (well, my sister knew), and then gave them cards I made (and treated them to a mani/pedi).

    Link with pictures of the cards I made:

    All of the girls loved it, and really liked their cards too. Not really funny though :)

    For my final bridesmaid, FI's sister, I had to mail her card since she lives in Cali.

    Here is the poem I used (not sure where I found it, somewhere online):
    The Day, the Dress
    The Bride, the Groom
    The Joy, the tears will all come soon

    Confessing true love to my husband-to-be
    with family and friends all watching me
    Pray the sun will be shining down
    and that I will fit into my gown

    Now there is just one more thing that is left to be and that’s to have you standing with me...

    Will you be my Bridesmaid?

    I'm kind of a bad bride... I didn't really ask, it was just kind of assumed :o)

    BUT! I did make my BMs little noted of gratitude. There are some pics in my planning bio.
