19 Mar Planning the perfect bridesmaid proposal
So, you’ve said “yes” to the love of your life, but now it’s time for you to pop the question yourself: it’s time for your bridesmaid proposal. As proposals have become more and more creative over the years (well done, gentlemen), it’s unsurprising that bridesmaid proposals have followed suit. Asking your best friend to be your bridesmaid can be surprisingly nerve-wracking, but don’t worry – we’ve got some ideas to make your special moment something you’ll both remember for years to come.
There are two key routes you can take here – you could either gather your girls together for a group bridesmaid party, or you could deliver your proposals on a one-on-one basis. Whichever option you choose, there are plenty of cute ways to make your proposal. We’ve listed our favourite creative ways to make your bridesmaids say “yes”.
Host a wine night – with a surprise twist
A way to gather your bridesmaids altogether is to host a drinks night at your home, without revealing your secrets beforehand of course! You could wait until the end of the evening to make your proposals, offering each bridesmaid a personalised bottle that has the question written on each label. It’s bound to spark a joyful reaction from your merry guests, and it gives them a memento they can cherish. Cheers!
Build a gift box
Giving each of your bridesmaids a gift box filled with treats is a thoughtful way to propose. You could fill the box with a mini bottle of fizz, nail polish, beauty masks and other wedding-related gifts that your loved one will enjoy. You could even personalise these choices to suit their specific tastes and interests. Include a handwritten note with the reasons you want them in your bridesmaid team, and you’re sure to inspire an emotional response.
Pop the question
Here’s an idea that’s similar to the popular trend of baby shower balloon. Hide your proposal message inside a balloon box – a small box filled with a balloon and a safety pin. When your bridesmaids pop the balloon, a message will jump out that says “Now it’s time for me to pop the question!”. You can add confetti or glitter to add to the surprise.
Say it with memories
Offering your bridesmaid a personalised photo album such as this gorgeous gift is a sentimental way to pose the question. This cute concertina style photo box can be personalised to feature photos of you and your bridesmaid-to-be, and will reveal your message at the bottom of the box. This is a great choice especially if you choose to propose to your maids one by one.
Whichever way you choose to ask the question, we’re sure your brides will be delighted. Tailoring your proposals to suit each bridesmaid’s styles and interests is a great way to go the extra mile – but as long as you show each one how much you value them being a part of your wedding, you’re bound to get the “yes” you deserve!
