Congratulations! You just got engaged, and now it’s time to get on a group Zoom call with all your closest friends to tell them the great news! It’s also time to start thinking about who’s going to be in your bridal party! Choosing your bridal party is no easy feat, and deciding how to ask them in a unique way is just as hard! Remember, these ladies will be your closest friends and confidantes throughout the wedding planning process, so you want to make sure they feel appreciated.
Often, brides will “pop the question” to their bridal party with gifts, like a bridesmaid proposal box! These have become super popular in the last few years, and are really convenient if you aren’t located in the same area as members of your bridal entourage. If you’re looking for a personalized, unique way to ask your bridal party, check out our recommendations for bridesmaid proposal box ideas below!
Items to Include
Honestly, you can include SO many different things in your bridesmaid proposal box! Some companies, like BoxFox, even have specially curated boxes for exactly that! I recommend theming the box to something that you and your friends love, or theme it to your wedding colors! Here are a few things you could include in your proposal box, pick and choose your favorites!
Include something for pampering, like this luxurious bath soak (it’s hard work being a bridesmaid)!
Top off the box with a yummy treat like these rosé gummy bears— they’re so festive and so adorable, you’ll want some for yourself!
This little bag packs 21 essentials into a cute compact pouch— from dental floss to clear nail polish to extra wedding bands, she’ll always be prepared for any bridal emergency with this kit!
It’s a great idea to include some fun bachelorette-themed accessories that she can wear to all the bridal celebrations! Our favorites are these Bride Tribe confetti party crowns, and these Bride Tribe crowns! Don’t forget to pick one (or a few) up for you too!
What bridesmaid doesn't need a travel tumbler to remember her amazing time at your wedding with? Travel tumblers are a great gift because not only are they re-usable, but they also encourage your gals to stay hydrated!
When to Gift
You have your list of bridesmaids and MOH names, and now it’s time to pop the question! But when is the right time to give your gang their bridesmaids gifts? Well, if you live nearby, organize a brunch or coffee date with each friend, and ask them in-person! If you live too far away to get together IRL, plan a Zoom wine night and send her the bridesmaid proposal gift box! Make sure she doesn’t open it ahead of time!
Ideally, it’s best to ask your friends to be bridesmaids well before your wedding. I mean, they’ll be supporting you throughout the wedding planning process and planning your bridal shower and bachelorette party! Plus, keep in mind that you may not be the only bride asking for her support this wedding season! So, ask her to be a part of your wedding ASAP, that way she has tons of time to plan.
