Now that you have a gorgeous ring on your finger, it's time for you to pop the question - to your bridesmaids, that is! Once you've decided who the special ladies will be, get creative with how you ask them to play such an important role on your special day. The following ideas will help get your creative juices flowing to ask the very important question, "will you be my bridesmaid?"
A Box of Bubbly
Create a special box to pop the question, literally. Fill your proposal box with a miniature bottle of champagne with a custom label with the message, "Now it's my turn to POP the question! Will you be my bridesmaid?" To accompany the bottle of bubbly, include a personalized champagne glass with your bridesmaid's name. This glass will also come in handy for the bridal shower and morning of the wedding while you ladies primp.
Very few can say no to something sweet, so ask your ladies with a delectable treat. A delicious cupcake adorned with a costume ring and the message, "I couldn't say 'I do' without YOU" should do the trick!
Another creative and sweet way to propose to your bridesmaids is to give them a ring of their own, a ring pop that is! Place the candy ring in a decorative box and do as your fiancÚ did by getting down on one knee to ask your very important question. Your maids are sure to get a kick out of this special and humorous treatment!
If you want to make your ladies work a little harder for their position, consider ordering a picture cookie puzzle spelling out your bridesmaid proposal. They won't mind the effort, after all, they'll get to enjoy quite a cookie when they're finished!
Your ladies need the right equipment to make it through the wedding planning process by your side, so set them up from the beginning with the essential bridesmaid survival kit. First, a personalized bridesmaid tank top is an important accessory for any bridal activities. You might also consider including a miniature bottle of her favorite adult beverage to get the party started.
Then for relaxation purposes and surviving the planning process with you, include her favorite candy, some bubble bath and a soothing scented candle.
Adding a funny card, like two I found on the Etsy website, are also great additions to the survival kit. One card asked, "Plan with me, stand with me, cry with me. Will you hold my dress while I pee?" while another stated, "I promise to pick a cute dress if you say yes!"
From the Heart
Sometimes important moments like this require a more sentimental approach. A great way to express your appreciation toward such a special lady is to commemorate your friendship with a photo montage of your greatest moments. This memento, accompanied by a heartfelt message is sure to get you a "yes" from your bridesmaid.
You might also consider a personalized photo frame with an engraved message of, "will you be my bridesmaid?" A personal and touching approach like this shows just how important it is to you to have your special ladies by your side on your wedding day.
Whether it's sweet, sentimental or a little sassy, choose a unique way to pop the question to your bridesmaids. This will make your ladies feel as special as you do knowing they have your back throughout the bridal adventure.
