Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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

  1. 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.”

  1. Picture Frame

Remind your friends of all the good memories that brought you to today by framing your cutest selfie or group shot.

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

  1. 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).

  1. Playful Puzzle

Keep your girls guessing while they put together a custom puzzle spelling out your message.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.
