Fun Ways To Propose To Your Bridesmaids

  |  By Angie Kovacs

Celebrating with your best friends and sharing with them the excitement about your wedding and marrying the partner of your dreams is a rite of passage for every bride. The first friends you tell when you get engaged will likely be the people you want standing by your side on the big day. Asking these friends to be part of your wedding party doesn't have to be an over-the-top affair, but by making the moment special you are showing how much their love and support means to you.

With bridesmaids proposals are becoming the norm, there are a number of ways you can make the moment special and show what they mean to you. Here are some fun ideas we love for bridesmaid proposals.

Keepsake Gifts
Treating your bridal party to a set of matching necklaces or bracelets bonds the party and is a meaningful touch. You can all wear the matching set on the big day, but it is also a special keepsake that they can keep long after your vows.

Create A Bridesmaid Box One popular idea that's taken off in recent years is putting together a box of goodies (all wrapped up nicely, of course) for the women you'll be asking. Gift them items specific to your wedding, such as adorable bridal party T-shirts, bottles of wine or matching glasses. You can also include items pertaining to their interests such as candles, stationery, or a gift that will remind them of an inside joke you share.

Think Sweet Sentiments If your closest friends have a sweet tooth you can have a box of sweet treats delivered. It’s something fun and celebratory that they can enjoy right away. Plus, is makes for a pretty sweet photo.

Your bridal party-to-be may know better than anyone what you’ve always dreamed of as your perfect proposal. One fun way to ask them to join you on your wedding day is to actually propose to them. They’ll love the thought you put into your ask, and it gives them great visuals to be able to capture the memory.
