Fun ways to ask "Will you be my Bridesmaid?"

He got down on one knee, presented the most beautiful diamond ring and you said YES ... now what?

It's time to propose to your bridesmaids! Your best friends, those special people you need by your side on your special day. You have the most exciting news but how do you tell them? Keep reading for our top 6 best ways to ask your besties to be your bridesmaids! 

1. A Beautiful Hamper

Send out a beautiful bridesmaid proposal hamper to all your bridesmaids-to-be. If you have the time and want to get crafty create them yourself and tailor them to each friend. We suggest including their favourite items like; wine, chocolate, jewellery, silk pjs, face masks, candles and a super sweet note asking them the important question. If you would prefer to leave the arts and crafts up to the professionals, jump online and shop the huge range of personal hampers that can be sent directly to your bestie’s doorstep. Etsy has some great options or visit one of the many online businesses like The Bridal Box Co and Bridesmaid Boxes that specialise in custom hampers. This is a fabulous idea if your besties don't live close by.

2. Personalised Treats

Do you or your friends have a serious sweet tooth? Why not ask with a personalised sweet treat? Hit up your favourite local bakery to see if they can organise this for you or order some online. Personalised Cookies and Chocolab have some fabulous options. This is a sweet surprise that will be appreciated by any friend.

3. Surprise Picnic

Go all out and throw a surprise picnic! Invite your future bridesmaids over one Sunday afternoon, pop the champagne and feast on a delicious grazing board, either in your backyard or at your local park. Share your very exciting news and then spend the afternoon celebrating with your favourite people, who are now going to be your bridal squad.  

4. Jewellery to Remember 

One heartfelt way to pop the question to your bridesmaids is by orchestrating a day they won't forget. Imagine starting the day with laughter and stories over a delightful brunch at a favourite spot, basking in the joy and anticipation of what's to come. As the mimosas flow and the final bites of avocado toast are savored, suggest a casual stroll leading to our charming family-owned jewellery shop. Select a special piece of jewellery like these stunning 9ct Yellow Gold Oval Freshwater Pearl Drop Earrings for each of your bridesmaids, a token of appreciation and love, something they can adorn leading up to your big day and cherish on the aisle itself. Let this experience be an introduction to the beautiful journey you're about to embark on together.

5. A Subtle Surprise

Maybe you are looking for something a bit more low-key and subtle? May we suggest Personalised Bridesmaids Mugs. Invite your friends over for a casual catch-up and pour them a hot drink. With these Handmade Ceramic Mugs all you have to do is sit back and wait for the excited squeals once the words "Will you be my Bridesmaid?" appear at the bottom of their cup. A super sweet idea without breaking the bank. 

  6. DIY Flower Bouquet 

Visit your local flower market or, for an even more personal touch, delve into your garden to gather your favourite blooms. Creating a DIY flower bouquet for your bridesmaid proposal is not just a cost-effective option; it's a deeply personal gesture that shows thought, effort, and love. It allows you to tailor each bouquet to reflect the unique bond you share with each of your besties. Plus, it’s a wonderful opportunity to unleash your creative side. Simply attach a note with the big question and wait for the tears of excitement.
