7 sweet ways to ‘propose’ to your bridesmaids

You’ve decided on your perfect bridal party, now you just need to ask them! From candles to cards, we’ve got some of the sweetest ways to ‘propose’ to your bridesmaids.

Asking your favourite girlfriends if they’ll be your bridesmaids is the ultimate way of saying how much their friendship means to you.

You’re asking them to stand beside you on potentially the biggest day of your life, and a sweet bridesmaid ‘proposal’ can be a lovely way to show them how important you feel that is.

‘Proposing’ to bridesmaids-to-be can take many forms, but the key thing is the element of surprise; the look on their faces when you ask them to be a part of your special day will be something you’ll treasure forever.

SoGlosWeddings has rounded up some of the sweetest ideas for bridesmaid ‘proposals’ to help you create a memorable and truly special moment with your girls.


1. Personalise it


Ask your girls with a personalised gift. Stick your message on something you know they’ll use again, like a mug or a pocket mirror, so that every time they use it they’ll be reminded of how much fun they had being your bridesmaid. A personalised coat hanger makes a particularly nice gift as they can then use it to hang up their bridesmaid gown afterwards.


2. Perfect polish


Get your girls a gift that can later be incorporated into their bridesmaid outfits, like a beautiful nail polish. Choose a shade that will match their dresses, or pick a colour that will pop against neutral colours.


3. Candle keepsakes


Similarly to a personalised mug or dress hanger, a personalised candle is something your girls can use again and again, remembering the moment you asked them to be your bridesmaid. To be extra sweet, why not get each maid a candle in her favourite scent?


4. Bridesmaid bubbly


A less sentimental lady might prefer her favourite tipple as a way to ask her to be a part of your big day. Even better, when she says ‘yes’, you can pop the cork and enjoy a celebratory drink together!


5. Pamper package


Treat your girls to a lovely handpicked selection of their favourite bath bombs, face masks and cosmetics. Create your own labels with your special message, or pop a card in with the package. Choose products that will help keep your ladies feeling beautiful and relaxed while they’re helping to keep you calm during the wedding planning!


6. Sweet treats

Ask your baker to decorate a set of scrumptious pastries with a ‘proposal’ message for your bridesmaids. After she says ‘yes’ she’ll be able to enjoy a delicious treat.


7. Keep it simple

At the end of the day, they do say less is more. If all this sounds like too much pomp and ceremony, and not your style at all, then there’s nothing wrong with keeping things simple – ask your girls to be your bridesmaids by just telling them exactly how you feel.
