I’m only having a Maid/Matron of Honor, so I bought these for her and the flower girl…

Whiskers0:  Some girls aren’t loving this idea. I want you to know that I love it. 

They say it’s not tradition, but it is now, to the modern bride, a tradition. Google “bridesmaid proposals youtube” girls are posting their girls’ reactions to the little box they are given or balloon they have to pop etc. 

It’s a new tradition, new wedding traditions pop up every few years.

On average it costs a bridesmaid $1600 to be in a wedding. They should feel like it’s amazing honour, that it’s worth it, they shouldn’t be the only ones buying presents and going above and beyond the call of duty. They should get rewarded for their hard work. Before and after. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, get down on a knee with a ring pop, make them pop confetti balloons that adorn them with sparkles when they say yes. Make them feel special. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had these cards and necklaces made! the mini bottles of champagne were a DIY project. Just gold spray paint and gold glitter. My girls loved them though! I’m crafty, so knew I wanted to ask them in a special way ๐Ÿ™‚

There are lots of ideas if you google or go on etsy and type in bridesmaid ask. I think it’s a cute idea, but since Fiance and I are paying for our wedding, I wasn’t going to spend on this since I am trying to pay for their dresses and hair/makeup. I created a pic collage on my phone from old and new pics of us together and included one of me holding a sign asking them. I messaged it, they all loved it and it didn’t cost a dime.

For your little gift box, I’d suggest a framed photo of you guys, their fave candy, lip gloss, nail polish in your wedding color. They will just be happy that you thought of them ๐Ÿ™‚

Whiskers0:  Handwritten card asking them to stand beside me. I toyed with a box of gifts, but I had just received one myself from a friend for her fall wedding and, honestly, I didn’t use anything in there. It was a DVD I already owned, a nightlight that I misplaced, a bottle of wine, and some other trinkets. All in all it was very cute to open, but now I have a decorative box that is just sitting in my closet taking up space. I figured I’d save myself time and money and just write them a quick note. It was very appreciated by all who received one.

There is a lot of thing on pinterest. It’s very much a new modern thing to do now. I’m doing simple like these ring pops. You don’t have to spend  a lot and it gets to the point.

I just bought my girls little tumbler cups with their name and “title” (bridesmaid/maid of honor) and then I got some floral cards that said “will you be my bridesmaid?”  More expensive than what I had planned, but hey, they’ll be spending money to be in my wedding so I want them to know I appreciate them!

I absolutely love this idea. I was thinking of a necklace/earrings to wear on the wedding day (and any other day), a pair of sunglasses with their name on one side and title on the other, a color swatch for their dresses and example pics, some chocolate, and a card with a special message. I love the PP’s idea of sending flowers/a card first and sending the box after they accept.
