When your special someone finally asks that important question, your next step is to ask the girls that you want to stand beside you that important question as well! One of the newest trends for Southern brides is asking the special girls in your life to be your bridesmaids in a cute and creative way.
1. Pop me
Put the question in a balloon with some confetti to make it a little bit more fun for everyone. This cute gift comes at a low price!
2. Box of goodies
Make an adorable box with tons of goodies for the most important girls in your life. These can include everything from pictures to wine to chocolate to little emergency kits. These could be specific to the bridesmaid or even include your wedding color scheme.
3. “Tie the Knot”
Give them something that they can wear forever, while still being a special reminder of the day that they shared with you. This “Tie the Knot” ring is something that is functional but still sentimental for everyone.
4. Christmas ornament
Perfect for a Christmas wedding, this proposal would be a hit with all of your girls. You could get these made or even make them yourself with clear ornaments from a craft store and paint and scrapbook letters or a sharpie. It’s also perfect for remembering the special day every year when they are decorating their tree!
5. Wine bottles
If all of your bridesmaids are wine lovers, then they will appreciate getting asked in a such a cute way with something they will get to use. It also might come in handy for a girls night to escape wedding planning later on down the road. The label could just be their favorite pattern or color or coordinate with your wedding colors.
6. A box of goodies with a twist
This box of goodies for your bridesmaids takes a wedding tradition and puts a spin on it. In the box, there’s something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. In this specific box, the bride chose the “something borrowed” to be paint swatches of the wedding colors. Each item could be something sentimental or simply something you know they will appreciate. Your girls will love this creative play on an old tradition!
7. Lilly planners
All of the planning and dates to remember for the wedding could be a bit overwhelming for a bridesmaid, so help them all out by giving them a planner with all of the important dates to remember. Slip in a sweet not to make it more personal and they’ll love your thoughtfulness in planning ahead and preparing them for what’s to come. Pick each one to coordinate with each individual girl’s style.
8. Message in a bottle necklace
Not only is this a proposal for your bridesmaids, but it’s a gorgeous piece of jewelry they will want to wear with everything. Inside of the tiny bottle is a scroll with the question on it asking them to be with you on your big day and everyday leading up to it. This necklace is something they will want to show off to all of their other friends because of how unique it is.
9. Picture Frame
After the wedding and in the days building up to it, you’re going to have many “Kodak moments” with your girls that will need a place to be displayed. Start them off right with a frame to put one of the many memories you will make with them along the way, while at the same time asking them to stick by you the whole way.
10. Ring Pop
“Pop” the question to your bridesmaids with Ring Pops. This is an inexpensive, playful, and funny way to ask that they’ll love. You all know you used to wear ring pops pretending like you were married when you were little. Now you’re really getting married! They get candy, you get bridesmaids. It is a win for everyone!
With any of these, you could coordinate with your wedding colors, match the personality of the girl you’re giving it to, or just have fun with it. No matter how you decide to ask the special women in your life to stand beside you on one of the biggest days of your life, they’ll know you love them and want them to be beside you. You are lucky to have an amazing support system beside you the whole time and they are lucky to have such a thoughtful bride spoiling them from the start!
