Hi Ladies! I’m brand new and this is my first post! I was hoping to get some of your feedback on my bridesmaid proposal ideas… I have 6 girls I want to ask and I want to do something cute/fun for them. I’m going to ask them at my birthday dinner party coming up soon. Below are ideas I came up with… which one would you like if you were a bridesmaid, or if you have ideas to contribute that would be great too!
1. A wedding movie (classics like My Best Friend’s Wedding or more current like Bridesmaids) paired with a card that has a thoughtful message inside for each girl.
2. A cute container of candy and ring pop in my wedding colors and ask by saying something along the lines of “It would make my day so sweet if you were standing by my side”
3. My last idea is to give each girl a copy of the book The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks. It’s one of the sweetest novels I’ve ever read. I would write a personal message inside the cover and hand make a bookmark for each girl.
Please help! I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks in advance!
Welcome to the bee and congrats on your engagement! I love the book idea too, its something I haven’t seen before so if your bridesmaids are all readers I think its an awesome idea. None of my bridesmaids are really into reading like I am but I am planning on doing something like your 1st idea. I’ll be making cards that include the following poem and a letter from me telling each girl why I need her by my side. I’m also including the movie ‘Bridesmaids’ and a couple catalogs to get their opinions on dresses for the wedding… I want it to be kinda like a welcome kit 🙂
” The day, the dress The bride, the groom The joy, the tears Will all come so soon
Professing true love To my husband-to-be With family and friends All watching me
I hope the sun will Be shining down, Keep your fingers crossed That I’ll fit in my gown…
But there’s just one more thing that there needs to be… and that’s to have you Standing with me!
