Bridesmaids Proposal Ideas

Having answered the most important question in your life, it’s time to reach out to those who have the greatest influence on your life. Choosing your bridal party might be a daunting task, but these bridesmaids proposal ideas promise to make asking them unforgettable and fun. If you’re wondering, how do you propose to your bridesmaids?, we’ve gathered some great suggestions for you.

Send Cards

You can send your future bridal party cute notes asking them to stand up with you, either when you mail save-the-date cards or separately. A lovely piece of stationery can make a nice keepsake and add an extra touch. We especially love these sweet personalized bridesmaid proposal cards available on Etsy

Host a Spa Day

Plan a relaxing day at the spa treating yourself and your friends to pedicures and/or manicures, and ask them to be your bridesmaids as you all lounge around. You can even make the bridesmaids proposal extra-special by presenting them with personalized silk robes they can wear again on your big day. 

Plan a Girls’ Night Out

Join your best girlfriends for dinner at your favorite restaurant or cocktails at your favorite bar. You can ask them during the evening, either as a group or individually. You can even get creative by having written requests delivered with dessert or the first round of drinks.

Choose Some Special Jewelry

A lot of brides like to give their bridal party simple yet elegant jewelry they can wear on the big day. A plain bangle, tear-drop earrings, or a simple necklace will add a bit of sparkle to their bridesmaid’s dresses without pulling any attention away from you. Attach a card or heartfelt note to the gift, asking them to be your bridesmaid.  

Give Them a Personalized Gift Box

You can order bridesmaid gift boxes full of personalized goodies like wine tumblers, water bottles, makeup brushes, compact mirrors, candles, soap, lip balm…the list goes on. Throw in a nice card on top and hand them out one by one or gather your wedding party together and let them unwrap everything at once. 

Make It Sweet

Have your local bakery make cupcakes with your bridesmaids’ names on them and present them with a special handwritten note or card. Cupcakes are a perfect option if you want to ask each bridesmaid individually. If you want to ask everyone at once, you can order a cake instead. (And if you want to keep this bridesmaids proposal idea affordable, do the baking yourself!)

Prepare a Wedding Day Prep Kit

Pull together a bag of goodies full of everything they will need on the wedding day. This could include a robe to wear while they get their makeup done, gel eye masks, mints, lashes, lip gloss, and any other essentials you can think of. If you want to go the extra mile, pack everything into a tote with your bridesmaid’s name on it. 

Ask Them Together 

Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple. Once you and your fiance have finalized who you want to be your bridesmaids and groomsmen, invite everyone over for a night in. Cook dinner, play games, hang out; then together, you can ask your favorite people to stand with you on your wedding day.
