Congratulations – you’re engaged! You said yes to the love of your life and now you’re ready to ask your besties to be your bridesmaids. This is such an exciting time to share with your future bridesmaids (or bridesmen) so make sure to have fun! 

Here are some Bridal Party Proposal ideas of ways to ask your Bridesmaids to be in your Wedding:

1. A gorgeous Photo Frame

You can’t go wrong with a sentimental gift such as a beautiful framed photo. This can be just you and individual bridal party members, or a group photo!

2. Gift Box

You can fill it with wedding related items such as a mini drink, self care items like nail polish and a face mask, sweet treats and even a thoughtful hand written note.

3. Jewellery

This can be personalised for them with their name or initial!

4. Afternoon Tea

Typically British and so much fun, treat your future bridal party to an afternoon tea. Share with them just how much they mean to you and how much you’d love for them to stand alongside you as you say ‘I do’!

5. Robes

We’ve all seen those gorgeous bridal party photos where every member has a matching robe! Why not start their bridesmaid journey like this? You can even personalise it with their names.

6. Send Flowers

Receiving a bouquet is something that makes anyone’s day! You can ask the question ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ on the note.

7. Group Workshop

It can be so fun to get your group together for a fun activity, for example a bouquet workshop! Weddings and flowers are the perfect match. You can leave a note for each of them asking them to be in your wedding party.

8. Custom scratch off card

For fun, why not create a custom scratch card! Under the scratch off part, your friends can find a message asking ‘will you be my bridesmaid?’ – how sweet!

9. Spa Day

Treat your future bride tribe to a spa experience or afternoon of facials and mani pedis!

10. Cake!

Who doesn’t love cake right? You can include a card or have the question on top!

11. Balloons

One option is to give each member a balloon and safety pin, when they pop the balloon they can find a message inside! Bonus tip: It can be super fun to add confetti inside as well!

12. Simply ask in person

If you want to keep it sweet and meaningful without the bigger gestures, simply popping the question in person can be just as thoughtful! It’s the heartfelt words that mean the most after all.
