Getting married is a big deal. Your husband to-be has popped the question to you – nerves and all. But now it’s your turn to pop the question – to your bridesmaids!
Your bridesmaids are going to be there to help you plan, de-stress, and get excited in the days leading up to your wedding. They’re going to do so much for you in preparing for your big day that it wouldn’t be right to pop them the question in anything less than a spectacular way. After all, you want them to be excited too!
There are hundreds of ways to pop the question: you could take them to brunch, surprise them with a shopping day, or take them to get mani-pedis. Though those are all great ways to ask, the ideas here will bring out the creative and fun side in all brides that your bridesmaids wil be sure to adore.
The first idea is for the Jewelry-crazed Bride. I think it’s safe to say that jewelry is the perfect way to mark a special occasion (hello, that’s why engagement rings are a thing!) It’s a piece of nostalgia that will last forever — and the best part, one that you can wear! To make the piece of jewelry even more special, you can engrave it and personalize it to each bridesmaid. It can be engraved with their initials, the wedding date, or even with a cute saying like, “Thanks for helping me tie the knot!” or “I couldn’t say I Do without you…” If the jewelry is rather small and can’t fit an entire saying, the words can be printed out and attached to the jewelry.
The next idea is for the Wine-loving Bride. Invite your girls over for a relaxing wine night and surprise them with customized bottles of their favorite wines and start the celebration early! Your bridesmaids will love the fact that you know their favorite wine. They’ll want to keep the wine bottle forever because each one will have a personalized label with their name and the question of the evening elegantly printed upon it.
The next idea is for the Creative Bride. You can create a gift box full of sentimental, hand-picked goodies your bridesmaids will cherish forever. You know your bridesmaids best, so fill it with their must-have items. To top it all off, fill the box with tissue paper, ribbon, confetti and a handwritten note. You could even combine some of the previous ideas, putting a personalized necklace into the gift box or the bottle of wine!
My personal favorite idea is for the Chic Bride. You can gift each of your bridesmaids and the maid of honor with a beautiful, silk robe that’s the color of their dresses. “Bridesmaid” and “Maid of Honor” will be elegantly written on the backs of each robe. You will be easily distinguished in a crisp, white, and silky robe with “Bride” written on the back. Your bridesmaids will feel tasteful and chic while wearing their robes while getting ready on your big day!
The last idea is for the Adventurous Bride who values experiences with her best girls over anything else. You can gift each of your bridesmaids with a personalized shirt repping the word “Bridesmaid,” (you, of course, will be repping “Bride,”) along with tickets to a concert of your favorite singer or tickets to an amusement park! You’ll be able to rock your shirts together while having a blast dancing and singing or riding heart-racing roller coasters.
