Wondering how to ‘propose’ to your bridesmaids? Asking your bridesmaids and maid of honor to stand by your side on your special day is a big decision and can also be so much fun! Whether you decide to give your gifts in person, ask them over the phone, or send them a box in the mail, the surprise of it all is half of the fun!
Of course with social media these days its a bit hard to be ‘original’ so here are some cute gift ideas that I think your bridesmaids will love and will actually put to use! These could be broken up into two sets of gifts (thats what I did). I gave them half when I asked them and half the night before the wedding. However, if you’re on a budget, but still want to do something cute to ask your girls- skip on the pre-wedding gift and just include whatever is most important in their ‘will you be my bridesmaid’ box. This will require a little more pre-planning, but is totally doable!
Whatever route you decide to go, you’ll definitely want to write your bridal party special little notes to include when you ask them. These are perfect and are only $3.00 each!
- Jewelry Box with their Initials
- Matching Earrings to Wear on the Wedding Day
- Tote Bag with their Monogram
- Robes to Wear in the Bridal Suite
- Ballet Flats to Change into on the Dance Floor
- Cute Hangers to Hang their Dresses on
- Cute little notebook for them to write in
- Lipgloss/lipstick that will go well with their bridesmaid dress
