We know how excited you must be feeling right now. Your special person popped the question, you might be sporting a gorgeous ring, and you’ve likely already started planning for your special day.
But before you get ahead of yourself, think about building a support system of your closest family and friends who will help you manage the whirlwind that is wedding planning. Before you pick your wedding date, venue, colour scheme, and dress, all within the first week of getting engaged, take a minute to think about who you want standing next to you at the altar on one of the most important days of your life.
Yes - that’s right, our friends. We’re talking about your bridesmaids!
Now the size of your bridal party is absolutely up to you! We can share no tried and true numbers with you because it’s a matter of personal preference. You can have one, three, five, or none! Ultimately, your bridal party can be any size that allows you to include the people who matter to you the most.
Let’s get to the fun part, shall we?
Bridesmaid proposals are one of the cutest wedding trends out there. It’s an opportunity to have fun and share the excitement of your special day with your closest friends. It’s also a thoughtful way to let your friends know how much they truly mean to you and how much you will most definitely value their support leading up to your big day.
Your friends deserve more than a text or phone call! Asking your bridesmaids to be in your wedding should be done in a special and creative way. Here are a few ideas:
1. A Box of Goodies
Create a box filled with essentials to pamper your friends. You can include tea, honey, nail polish, a bath bomb, chocolate and of course, a personalized card! Now who doesn’t love a goodie box?
2. Satin Robes
Comfortable and stylish robes are an excellent way to propose to your bridesmaids. You can even take it a step further by personalizing it with their names. Bonus! Your gals can forever use this robe at their leisure, and at your wedding day, of course! Get ready for some cute morning photos with matching robes and your best pals.
3. Edible Delights
Now we don’t know about you, but we sure love to snack! Ordering custom proposal cookies or macarons are a delicious and fun way to firm up your bridal party.
4. Cheers to That
You can never go wrong with a bottle of rose and a personalized flute. Just like the robes, your gals can also use their personalized flutes for some wedding day mimosas. Pop the bubbly!
5. Dinner Date
If your love language is quality time, why not throw a dinner party for your girls? Whether you do all the cooking or you simply order in, hosting a dinner soiree for your friends is the perfect opportunity to ask them your important question and have them all meet and mingle before any other wedding festivities if they come from different parts of your life. Everyone needs a good girls' night out!
I hope this will help you when you're ready to propose to your bridal party! Have fun with it, and enjoy the little things! XO
