You’ve said yes to the ring, so now it’s time to pop a big question of your own: Will you be my bridesmaid?
In the age of social media, it’s increasingly popular to propose bridesmaid-hood to your besties in super creative and Instagram-worthy ways. Not only is it more fun and memorable than a text or phone call, but putting a little extra effort into asking shows how special these girls (and guys!) are to you.
Here are 10 bridesmaid proposal ideas to inspire you as you kick-start the wedding planning process.
- Bridesmaid Box
Ensure your bridesmaids are equipped for the big day with wedding emergency kit complete with must-haves like blotting papers, bobby pins, hairspray and more. You can either create a custom DIY box or purchase ready-made boxes from Pinterest or similar sites.
- Bottles of Booze
Whether it’s a your favorite red, some bubbly champagne or hoppy ale, nothing says cheers like a little alcohol. You can even personalize it by purchasing custom labels or printing your own
- Custom Glassware
Give a keepsake your bridesmaids can literally raise a glass to with personalized glassware. Gift mugs with their initials, “bride squad” stamped shot glasses or stemless champagne flutes simply etched with “bridesmaid.”
- Picture Frame
Remind your friends of all the good memories that brought you to today by framing your cutest selfie or group shot.
- Something Sweet
Show your pals they take the cake by proposing with a sweet treat. Cookies, macrons, chocolate covered strawberries or candies – whatever satisfies her sweet tooth!
- Spa Kit
Tell your buds to treat themselves with a home spa kit. Fill a box with bath bombs, face masks, bubble bath and more to help them relax before the wedding chaos begins.
- Something Sparkly
Rings aren’t the only way to ask someone a big question. Propose to your bridesmaid with a necklace or pair of earrings they can wear to the wedding (and that they’ll want to wear for years to come).
- Playful Puzzle
Keep your girls guessing while they put together a custom puzzle spelling out your message.
- Beautiful Bouquet
Who doesn’t love a lovely bunch of flowers at your door? Cater to each soon-to-be bridesmaid’s taste with a bouquet of her favorite blooms and a heartfelt note.
- A Little Surprise
Start the celebration early with this fun, yet simple surprise. Place a confetti-filled balloon in a box for your bridesmaids to pop and reveal your question.
