Will you be my Bridesmaid?

 

Your love popped the question, and now it is time for you to pop the question to closest friends!

Whether you choose to have bridesmaids or not, there are still a select number of people {maybe, “honorary guests”} you want to make feel a little extra special in celebrating with you on your wedding day.

Some brides view wedding party gifts, or bridesmaids gifts, as a tit-for-tat gift in return for them footing the bill for their dresses, shoes, plane tickets, etc., but it’s more than that; it is important to show your ‘maids how much you love and appreciate them being there for you on your big day and the months leading up to it. After all, these are some of the most cherished people in your life!

There are so many sweet ways to asks your besties to be a Bridesmaid/Maid of Honor in your wedding, but we wanted to share a few of our favorites with you!

 

Bridal Boxes are so IN right now and are super customizable to your wedding theme!

 

For the DIY Bride:

How much fun is it to choose all the fun things that represents your wedding and compile them into a cute little box?!

Some contents that make us swoon:

-Bath Bombs

-Champagne or Wine {Duh!}

-Nail Polish {the perfect color to match your theme}

-Confetti Poppers

-Chambong {maybe a hint for the bachelorette party – Yay!}

-Face Mask

-Candies

-Coffee/Tea

-A Handwritten Letter

 

Of course, you don’t have to include all of these items if you choose not to, but any of these wrapped with love will surely make your soon-to-be Bridesmaids feel loved!

 

For the not-so-DIY bride or the Busy Bee Bride, there are several companies who would LOVE to make your boxes for you!

This OneHope Bridesmaid Crate is one of our favorites!

Specifically, for every Bridesmaid Crate you purchase, OneHope provides ten meals to children in need.

You can choose the customization of the box(s) you would like to send and then they are delivered straight to your bridesmaids’ doors, or to your door for you to personally distribute.

 

Here is a list of other companies who make Bridesmaid Boxes:

Besides Bridal Boxes, you can always send a beautiful hand-written note, ask while doing something you both love together {like shopping, or sipping coffee at your favorite cafe!} or take your bridesmaid-to-be to brunch and pop the question while popping a bottle of champagne!

However you decide to ask, it is a sweet gesture and will sure to be the start of a fun planning process and ultimately a celebration for the books!

Cheers!
