Hey everyone! I just got engaged 12/21/19 and we aren’t getting married until April of 2021 but I am so anxious to do all the things wedding!! I really wanna do bridesmaid proposals but am having such a hard time deciding what to put in the boxes? Also, when should you ask them?

    I got engaged 12/2/19 and we’re planning on a May 2021 wedding. I plan on asking my girls by this March. I’m going to do small boxes with “proposal” cards, champagne toast candles from B&BW, some sugarfina champagne bears, some B&BW Bride Tribe hand sanitizers, ring pops and maybe some hair ties. Some people go crazy with elaborate boxes. If that’s in your budget then knock yourself out, but I personally don’t think it’s necessary.

    I would wait until you're about a year out. Relationships can change, and you can read countless discussions on here about bridesmaid drama. If you want to fo proposal boxes, you can really do whatever you want. I bought totes bags from Homegoods for cheap that said bridesmaid or maid of honor, and then I filled them with printed photos of me with them, a small bottle of prosecco, an unbreakable champagne glass, a hand written note talking about how much they mean to me and how I would love them to stand up there with me, and a fake flower from the dollar store.

    Hi Amanda,
    Congratulations, you should ask your bridesmaids a year out, that's the recommend time frame, I gave silver bracelets with little hearts on them " will you be my bridesmaid " on them from TheKnotShop, there about $25, also I recommend
    jjshouse for bridesmaid dresses, I got my bridesmaids dresses from them as well as my second dress to change into after the ceremony, if you want to check out the dress, jjshouse.com, style 105912 they will wear lilac and I will wear lavender, if you do see it, PLEASE let me have your opinion of the dress! Also it's never to early to start planning, often venues and photographers are booked 2 years or more in advance, so you should start looking soon! I wish you the best of luck!!!

    One of my biggest regrets was getting super excited and asking my girls the moment I got engaged. Now I have 2 or 3 bridesmaids who really should’ve just been guests and I can’t ask them to step down because it’s not worth the drama. If you’re SUPER set on someone for your MOH, maybe just stick to doing her. 💕

    My wedding is also in April 2021! I won’t be asking until at least one year out, but I asked my MOH already.

    I didn’t do boxes, just letters, but I asked at 18 months. I don’t think you have to keep waiting if they are lifelong friends or family. If they are more recent friends or not as close then you could wait just in case it doesn’t work out.

    Congratulations! I asked my bridesmaids to be in our wedding in July of 2019. Our wedding is May 2020. I reserved a small banquet room at a restaurant and provided a bunch of appetizers. It was a reveal/meet and greet and the ladies had a blast. Their gifts were bags that included bath and body works lotion, a bride tribe tumblr, an “I do crew” makeup bag, candy and a face mask. I kept it simple. I also wrote each lady a personal letter and had them open cards at the same time asking them to be my MOH/BM.

    Things I included for my bridesmaid proposals were: favorite wine, candle, favorite candy, and a little personalized card!
