Once you’ve been proposed to, you’ll have your own proposing to do. There are plenty of sweet ways to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids – you just need to find the idea that speaks to you! If you are brainstorming a bridesmaid proposal plan, use some of these ideas for inspiration.
Throw a Bridesmaid Party
If you love hosting, why not throw a party at your home for your friends and ask them there? Break out your favorite drinks and appetizers, put up some decorations, and enjoy the night with your closest friends.
Get Crafty with a Scrapbook
Do you have a knack for crafting? Then put it to good use and create scrapbooks for each of your friends! You can fill a scrapbook with all of your favorite memories, and fill the final page with a note asking them to be your bridesmaid.
Raise a Glass with Custom Wine Labels
If you and your friends love to relax over a glass of wine, gift them each a bottle with a custom wine label that includes a sweet note asking them to be your bridesmaids. This is particularly on-theme if you are hosting a vineyard wedding.
Propose with a Piece of Jewelry
Take a hint from your fiance! Pick out coordinating pieces of jewelry that you can use to “propose” to your bridesmaids. Necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are all great choices. They can even wear them on your wedding day!
Gift Getting-Ready Robes
You are probably familiar with the wedding trend where the bride and bridesmaids wear coordinating robes as they are getting their hair and makeup done. Go ahead and check buying those robes off of your checklist, and use them to propose to your bridesmaids!
Bake Some Sweet Treats
This idea is great for those with a sweet tooth. Bake some of your favorite treats, and use icing to write out a “will you be my bridesmaid?” message on top.
Put Together a Bridesmaid Gift Box
Create boxes filled with goodies, and gift them to each of your friends as you ask. You can fill them with mini bottles of champagne, candles (in a wedding cake scent, of course), nail polish, and whatever else you see fit. You can also personalize these boxes to each bridesmaid’s personal style and interests.
Send a Letter Via Snail Mail
You don’t have to do something big and elaborate. Send a simple note asking each of your friends to be your bridesmaids. You can find bridesmaid stationery online, or simply write a note on a card of your choosing. This is an especially great idea if you have potential bridesmaids scattered all across the country.
Keep it Simple
Want to do something low-key but meaningful? Invite each of your bridesmaids-to-be out for a one-on-one coffee or drink date, and ask them in person. Your friends will appreciate the time spent with you, as well as the straightforward ask!
