Your left ring finger is sporting some shiny new bling and you’ve grown accustomed to your newly minted title of fiancée. The wedding planning typically begins shortly after the champagne settles, so what better way to start than by assembling your #bridetribe? If you need some help in deciding how you’re going to recruit your crew, look no further as we’ve rounded up some fun bridesmaid proposal ideas to use when you ask your girls the big question. Enjoy!
Custom Cookies: Who doesn’t love cookies?! You are sure to receive a quick ‘YES!’ after gifting your girls with an edible request. A quick search on Etsy will lead you to pages of baked possibilities, like these beauties! More of a DIY type of girl? Bake up a batch of your famous cookies and present them in a cute package complete with a note to let your girls know just how sweet it’d be to have them by your side.
Jewelry: What better way to ask your ‘maids to join you on your big day than by gifting them a piece of jewelry to wear while standing by your side? There are many options of sweet little pieces, including these knot earrings. Our personal favorites are these gorgeous Alex and Ani bracelets that come in both a bridesmaid and maid of honor design. Seriously though, these are making us want to get married again just for the bridesmaid proposals!
Alcohol: As the saying goes, no good story ever started with a salad, and your bridesmaid proposals should be treated accordingly. All you have to do is pick out a cute glass, pair it with a coordinating bottle, and include a cute card like this (or this!) and your bridal party is going to be complete before you know it. In regards to the glasses, we’re loving these shot glass, wine glass, and champagne flute options by Happily Ever Etched.
Scratch-off Cards: Looking for a less flashy approach? Or maybe you are simply looking to save money. Either way, a sweet, handwritten card is perfect for asking your girls to be your bridesmaids. This scratch-off style card is one of our favorites.
DIY Boxes: DIY boxes are our favorite means of proposing to your girls as they are fully customizable. Plus, you can incorporate all of the above ideas to create the ultimate bridesmaid proposal box! Some of our favorite items to add are mini bottles of champagne (to POP the question!), bottles of nail polish to match your wedding colors, some tasty treats, and fragrant candle. Add a sweet note as the final touch and, girl, you’re done!
