You have your man and now you need your girls! Asking your besties to be your bridesmaids is an exciting event and, when done in a fun and creative way, can turn out to be one of the most memorable parts of the wedding-planning process for both you and your girls.
While there isn’t necessarily anything wrong with shooting your bridesmaids-to-be a quick text asking them the big question, presenting them with something memorable and creative will show them how special they are to you and act as a bit of an advance thank-you gift for all of the help they’ll give you in the days leading up to the main event. Even something as simple as a custom invitation with a personalized note can go a long way in making your ‘maids feel important.
If your besties don’t all hang around in the same circle, use your bridesmaid proposal as an opportunity to get all the girls together in one spot before the real wedding planning begins. Customize bottles of wine and give your bridesmaids personalized wine glasses so you can create a girls’ night out of the event. Create memento boxes with things like macarons, champagne and lipstick to get your ‘maids excited for your wedding journey.
No matter what you choose to do, remember how important your bridesmaids will be to you on your big day. Don’t they deserve a great proposal, too?
