Ideas on how to propose to your bridesmaids
Being a bridesmaid is a huge commitment and honour. It’s basically their job to ensure your hens/kitchen tea party is planned/organised. You may ask their involvement in saying “Yes to the dress”, cake tasting or just helping you with your vows (reminder: they’re not your wedding planners). It’s important you show them why its so important to have them standing by yourside on this very special day.
Cost effective ways:
Take them for brunch, high tea or cocktails and pop the question
Create your own special “will you be my bridesmaid” card
Grab a bottle of wine and get some personalised stickers over the top - tell them “I can’t stand straight without you - will you be my bridesmaid?”
Bake/buy a cake or cookies for all of your bridesmaids proposing
Send flowers with a card proposing
More personalised ways:
Organise a personalised gifts individually that mean something special to each of them. If one loves books, send them a personalised book to their home or another loves wine (who doesn't), personalised glasses with their names on it
Creating a photobook with photos of the two of you with memories and pop the question at the end
Send an online gift to each individually
Organise a pamper night in with DIY boxes with facials, choccies, nibbles and bubbles
We’re not saying this is a Must-Do deed but when it comes to selecting your bridesmaids, what you give is what you get. So a small gesture or extra little effort to make them feel special can go along way, especially if you're going to lean on them the next 12 months leading up to your wedding.
