Planning your wedding can be stressful and one of the wedding tips is to start your wedding planning process as soon as he proposes. From choosing your bridal dress, your bridal makeup, bridal hairstyle, and perfect accessories for that dreamy look you’ve always desired – you have to plan, plan, and plan.
“Popping the question” to your bridesmaids is usually a joyous affair and there are so many cool and classy ways you can make your ladies feel special as they witness your forever after.
The bridal party members are basically the VIPs of the wedding, so treat them like it when you “propose”.
Take some cue on how to ‘propose’ to your best girls
1. Send Personalized Gifts
If you’re planning a small wedding party, you can send personalized perfectly wrapped gifts with some flowers to each girl with the question printed on the note. This will make them feel so special and love you more.
2. Wedding Invitation Stationery
Give each bridesmaid a pop-up invite in your wedding color. There is so much excitement when you receive a personalized letter in the mail. Adding a nice note explaining why your friendship is so important, along with the “Will you be my bridesmaid/maid of honor” question is a simple and sweet gesture.
3. Hide a Secret Message
Who doesn’t love some yummy secrets? This is one of the cutest ideas that will put a smile on girls’ faces. You can hide your question in a variety of ways. A faux gift box can be disguised to a pull-out message or give a less-than-subtle hint about your theme by hiding the message inside a small box. Your bridesmaid will certainly crack a smile when she sees the “Will you be my bridesmaid?”
4. Over Dinner
After work or on weekends, you can invite your girls out for dinner. Having a girl’s night out is always a great idea no matter the occasion and of course, you can take this time out to relive your best days together as you sip and swirl. You can awesomely break the news over some excellent food and conversation if you want to keep it short, sweet, and memorable.
