Four Unique Ways To Propose To Your Bridal Party

Pinterest has become a hub of DIY and wedding planning. Because of this, ways to propose to your bridal party have become more creative. If you want some unique ways to ask your bridesmaids & groomsmen without breaking the bank, we’ve got you covered! Here are four unique ways to ask your bridal party to be in your wedding.

Option #1- A handwritten note on the back of a meaningful photo of you together.

It’s always nice to receive handwritten notes. Friends love reminiscing on memories by looking at old photos. When you combine those two ideas together it makes for a special keepsake. If you want to go the extra mile, purchase a clear plastic or glass frame so your friend can always see the front and back of the photo and note.

Option #2- A custom sticker put on a mini bottle of champagne or the bridal party’s drink of choice.

This is a yummy and easy option. Purchase printable stickers from any office supply store. You can design on your computer using the brand of choice app, and TADA, you have a fancy & fun bridal party proposal! If your bridal party isn’t the alcohol type, that’s fine! How about a specialty coffee drink?! Decide which drink is your bridal party’s favorite and choose that option.

Option #3- A T-Shirt Or Custom Apparel

When you are getting married there are many fun outings with your bridal party. Who doesn’t love cute or comical bridal party coordinated apparel? You could go simple with bridesmaids bride tribe shirts such as these cute ones from Liz & Kate boutique in Geneva, IL. Or some fun ones for the guys like these groom squad shirts. If you wanted to go a bit simpler, bridesmaid and groomsmen hats are easy to find at many local brick & mortar shops.

Option #4- Give them a box of their favorite sweet treat with a note on the inside of the box asking them to be in your bridal party.

This one is an easy DIY if you like baking. If not, there are many local bakeries or candy shops that make it easy to fill up a box with their favorite things. Who doesn’t like getting candy and cookies?! You can find bakery boxes at any local craft store. Check out some of your local bakeries may even help you out and box it for you.

Homemade Bridesmaids’ Gifts

A personal gift is a great way to show your gratitude and appreciation to the women you’ve chosen to stand with you on your wedding day. It’s customary to give your bridesmaids a present at the bridesmaids’ brunch, rehearsal dinner, or other wedding-related event in the days leading up to the ceremony. Homemade gifts are a customized (and potentially cost-effective) way to say thanks to these important women. Here are some ideas of thoughtful homemade gifts…

Customized Gift Basket: Show each lady how much she means to you and how well you know her with a customized gift basket filled with her favorite things. Surprise a movie buff with DVDs, film trivia books, and boxed candy organized in a cute popcorn dish. Treat a coffee lover to a collection of gourmet java, French press, and mugs. Whether your pals love drinking wine or hosting parties, hiking outdoors or crafting at home, you can put together a clever and thoughtful collection of items that embody their personality and interests.

Made-From-Scratch Treats: If you’re no stranger to the kitchen, why not whip up some delectable goodies for your gals? Homemade baked goods can be time-consuming to make, but fun and inventive as a gift. Whether you like to make gourmet bread, chocolate-covered treats, or cutesy cookies, if you wrap and arrange it properly, handmade baked goods can be a sweet way to say thanks.

Painted Possessions: You don’t have to be an expert artist or have your own workspace to create a painted present. Most cities have do-it-yourself pottery shops where you can choose from a wide array of ceramic items for painting. If you’re nervous about your skills with a paintbrush, try picking up cool and interesting items (like book ends, kitschy knick-knacks, lamps, or platters) and paint them in a solid color to make a bold statement and a fun gift.

Sewn Accessories: If you know your way around a sewing machine, create a one-of-a-kind gift for your bridesmaids. Sew blankets, tote bags, or an apron or grab some knitting needles and make cute winter accessories like hats, mittens, or scarves for a personalized and practical gift.

Sentimental Souvenir: Chances are that every one of your bridesmaids has a unique and meaningful relationship with you. Highlight your memories and show them how much you care with a sentimental gift, personalized for each gal. Put together a scrapbook or photo album filled with significant pictures, quotes, memorabilia, printed emails, and handwritten notes to communicate how much you care.
