They have cards on a lot of websites that say will you be my bridesmaid. I think a card is cute.

@Bride16: I hit submit too soon. You could buy her a bridesmaid tank top and ask her if she would wear it.

I found an idea from another thread, but what I did was mail out headbands to each of my bridesmaids with a personalized card for each where I wrote a letter to each girl.  Attached to the headband I had a favor tag that said, “Will you head down the aisle with me?”.  All the girls loved it!  I also asked each girl to take a picture of themselves with the headband on and to email it to me if they accepted and I’ll use the pictures on our wedding website :-).  Good luck!

I got excited and asked right away as blunt as I am 🙁 I wish I knew about cards…they’re sweet.

I had cupcakes made to ask the girls. I am all about doing things different for our wedding so I knew I definitely didn’t want to just come out and ask them. My Maid/Matron of Honor and bridesmaids are my 3 best friends. We’re all so busy so we are only able to meet once a month for our lunch catch up session. I arranged for us to go to a cafe where I treated them to lunch and then presented them with their cupcakes.

It wasn’t a surprise that I had chosen them as my bridesmaids since we have been bff’s since elementary school and jr. high but they all really appreciated that I had put thought into it.

The bakery warned me that it would be hard to fit “Will you be my bridesmaid/MOH?” on the cupcake but I said as long as it was legible that I didnt care. I think they turned out decent. They even made me a “Bride” cupcake (and no, I didnt order it!). On the way home from lunch my MOH’s cupcake fell over in the car. When she opened it, it said “Will you be my Ho?”. Still makes me laugh!
