So, the love of your life popped the questions and of course you said yes. You’ve got the love of your life, that gorgeous ring on your finger and you’re happily looking forward to the most exciting day of your life.
There’s only one thing left to do and that’s to enlist the help of your most trusted, the people that have been there for you through every messy breakup, drunken nights of partying, and from the moment you met the love of your life – it’s time to make your bridesmaids official!
Make them feel just as special as they are to you with these cute and creative ways of ‘proposing’ the bridesmaid question to them.
It’s not every day that you ask your girlfriend to be your bridesmaids, and we’re pretty sure you don’t turn up to brunch with gift boxes every Saturday… BUT giving them a small gift box with a secret pull-out message is a great way of popping the question. Faux-gift boxes are misleading and will certainly make the moment more exciting.
A Message in a Bottle
If you’re planning a destination wedding, what better way of asking your girls to join you than by giving them a message in a bottle? Packed with sand (effort but since we’re in Australia, not too much of an effort), enclose a small note with the all-important question written on it.
Create a Scrapbook
Although it’ll take a little bit of effort, why not create a personal scrapbook for each of your future bridesmaids, packed with special moments from your friendship over the years. From your first girls’ holiday and your school formal to your 18th birthday parties and drunken nights out, get the tissues ready because the tears are certainly going to be flowing.
A Scratch Card
Give your girlfriends a personalised scratch card and write a sweet and personal message for each maid-to-be. Since it’s not every day that your friend hands you a scratch card, it’ll be a real surprise when they scratch it to reveal the message. Quirky and cute, what’s not to love?
A Personalised Necklace
A simple initial necklace is the perfect gift to give to your favourite girls before the big day. Not only will they be able to treasure it forever, but they can even wear it on your big day – if it matches the dresses of course. Be sure to pick either gold or silver depending on your friend’s skin tone, after all you want them to wear it and love it just as much as you love them!
Last but not least…
