Hello everyone, New Bee here having an engagement party soon and I figured it would be a great time for me to ask my friends and sisters if they would be bridesmaids In our wedding. I knew I wanted to do something special and loved the idea of “popping” the question. My mother helped make these, instead of using the usual Ring Pops we used diamond keychains I wanted my girls to have a little keepsake to remember the occasion. I’m really excited with how they came out, but I’m a little torn.. Should I put each girls initial on each box or leave them as is? Also should I ask them individually or as a group? If anybody has done something similar I would love to hear about it.
Thanks in advance, having such a great time on these boards everyone has been so helpful.

Mmisschelly: it’s the cutest idea I have seen on the Bee. I think it’s fine the way it is. You should ask them on by one thru out the night at you engagement party first start with one of your sisters and ask them to keep it a secret until you ask them all, and maybe after they all say yes take like a group picture with them all and have like a prop sign saying “they said yes” or you can have a get together over your house with them and let them all know they said yes, and talk about wedding plans ect.

Mmisschelly: Gorgeous!! They will love that! I ‘popped the question’ to my bridesmaids during our engagement party too 🙂 I asked them together (with a gift) and it was so lovely! We had a photographer there so they captured some great photos!

Mmisschelly: my only concern about doing it at the engagement party would be if anyone there thinks they might be a BM when they’re not but if you definitely don’t have any situations like that it sounds good (I’m only saying this due to the number of posts on here about x is offended I didn’t ask or omg I can’t believe I’m not a BM for so and so)

I wish I would have taken a picture of what I did when I asked, which is SO me… but I forgot. I put a small bottle of champagne, some nail polish, lip gloss and a card in a box. The cards were different, since one was for my sister asking to be my MOH, and the other was for my FSIL to be my BM.
I asked each individually, as I think it kept it more special. However, I know people who have asked in a group and that worked too.

Really cute! I proposed to my BMs, but with a ring pop. They all loved it.

Chaedra: I love the idea of asking them individually throughout the night… Thank you! I’m glad you like them took a couple tries since I wanted a small box and had a difficult time finding ones that fit the keychain….
Miss_E_xx: I will make sure to have someone capture the moment.. Thanks for reminding me of that!

cpick: Our engagement party is more like a gathering of families… Both our families have met, but my mom wanted to celebrate our engagement and I didn’t want a big party so this was a happy medium. Only Immediate family and close friends (those I’m asking to be in bridal party) will be there to avoid any hurt feelings. 🙂
NJkristenann: love it, very cute!!

I love your idea! These are super cute! I did something similar to ask my girls to be my bridesmaids. I blinged out white memory boxes that I got at Michael’s. I decorated wine glasses with each of the girls’ first initial. I also blinged out the stems of the wine glasses. I also blinged out a picture frame and included a photo of each friend and me. I put everything in the boxes with a cutesy little poem asking them to be bridesmaids!
I had to give each of them to the girls individually because we all live in different areas, but it still worked out great! They all seem to LOVE their gifts! 🙂
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR WEDDING!!
