So, I’ve been really trying to brainstorm on cute ideas on how to ask my girls to be my bridesmaid. I really want to come up with something cute and unique. They all live in NY and I just moved to SC and I want them to know that they’re still very special to me despite our distance and that it’s very important for me to have them by my side.
I was thinking of buying a cute ring off etsy – one for each girl (likely to have 4 girls total) somewhere in the range of $10-15. I was going to put the ring in a ring box and mail it to them. When you open the ring box, at the top of the box I was going to put a small card that says something like, “Now that I’ve been proposed to, I’d like to propose to you: Will you be my bridesmaid?”
My FI thinks it’s stupid and cheesey, but he’s also a boy lol. What do you girls thing? Cute? Silly? Unnecessary? I can do better? You love it?
Here’s a few ideas on the rings I was thinking of:
Maybe in a different color for each bridesmaid.
Ok, I see I have an obsession with the rose rings.. lol
I can personalize these with their names – or maybe their name on one side and my name on the other?
Ok, sorry for all the large images! What do you ladies think??

The name rings are great, but I would just put their names on them – not yours as well.

I think its a really cute idea. Love the rose rings.

Cute idea! But I’d do either the infinity rings or personalized rings…with just their names or intials and maybe the date of the wedding?
Rose rings are not everyone’s taste, and the others would just be better for everyday wear after the wedding.

Ok at least you all agree that it’s a cute idea!! Yay! Luckily, most of my friends and I have very similar taste so the 4 girls will like probably whatever I pick. I like the idea of giving them a different color so it’s a bit more personal. I also like the personalized one with their names on it, because that’s more personal, too.
Thanks for the responses so far!
ETA: Would anyone suggest a different piece of jewelry instead of a ring and if so, why?

OMG this ring is so cute too:
You can personalize the crystal!
Someone get me off etsy now…. I have an addiction!

Thanks everyone! I’m using this thread to show my FI it’s not a stupid idea, but he keeps rolling his eyes at me. LOL whatever. Let’s see what he decides to do for his guys!

@futuremrsk18: I like the personalized rings out of all of them, but I would stay away from putting your wedding date on them. The wedding date is special to you, not necessarily to them. And if you wanted to put your name on it, maybe engrave it on the inside??

Cute idea, I’m actually doing the same exact thing [which is basically the ring pop proposal with a ring instead of a pop!].
I would use the eternity ring though. I wouldn’t use the rose ring, unless they are really into costume jewelry.

@E_Lynne615: That’s what I meant – on the inside.
I really like the heart ring that I posted later on the most right now, though. I think it’s simple enough for all the girls to like and the right price ($13) so I won’t be breaking the bank – I still need to get ring boxes and mail them.
I got to the bottom of this – FI thinks it’s stupid that I’m “proposing” to them. He said, “Should I propose to my guys, too?” No, you only propose to me, silly child! LOL
Thanks for the input so far everyone!

I love the idea 🙂 I asked all of mine w/ a gift as well… though not nearly as well-coordinated as yours lol

The personalized rings are real cute. I wouldn’t wear anything that had the bride or groom’s name on it, though. I know who you are — I don’t need your name on something.

That’s actually a really cute idea. I like all the rings, but I think the personalized ring would be the best
