Hello beautiful ladies馃憢馃徑
My hubby and I are having our wedding in 6 months! ( I know crazy, even though I find that it鈥檚 more and more common now lol) and we just purchased our invitations . I鈥檝e had bridesmaid invitations picked out for a while( when we were planning a year out) but now that it鈥檚 happening sooner and I want to just send out the invitations out , I was wondering if there was any creative ways that you guys asked your bridesmaids to be your bridesmaid?

    I just called mine. Overly complicated "proposals" can backfire. Women who receive one may feel obligated to say yes, even if they have concerns about things like finances--and then you'll get drama closer to the wedding.

    You make a valid point but I feel asking someone to be in your bridal party with or without a proposal could be hard for that person to say no. I think regardless of the way you do it you can always take the person aside and ask them honestly if they're able to or not. I've had friends just ask a friend and then that person did not do as much as they could have due to other important obligations.


    Although it's really up to you and what you want to do. I can agree that maybe a proposal or something special is not the way that you may want to do things and it's simple asking is okay. Only do something special if that is how your personality is. None of the ladies that have ever asked me to be a bridesmaid ever gave me a proposal. I'm only doing that because I'm just extra hahaha.

    All of my bridesmaids knew before hand they would be in my wedding because we had talked at length about it, but I still wanted to do something cute and meaningful, so I bought candles with custom stickers, a makeup bag and I gave them a handwritten letter inside the box too.

    I am a creative person, so I guess part of me is like i want to do something fun and creative in a sense. But in a way most of them do already know. I guess I wanna officially ask again because we're actually planning our wedding.

If you want, msg me and I can send you the links. I am eloping but going to still include them in some way so I wanted to do something nice for my two friends even if my way or marriage is different from the norm ha ha. I have the tumbler, from Home Goods a scented candle, bag of coffee and some cookie sticks. BM BoxHow Did You ask your bridesmaids? 3

    I think if they know and you want to do something cute then go for it. I feel it is a fun touch. So many ideas via pinterest and etsy. One friend of mine met up at a bridal expo and brunch with her ladies and gave them a personalized card and bottle of champagne or sparkling cider. I think it is a fun touch even if they know ha ha. Some ladies like to be officially ask. Smiley smile Let us know what you choose to do.

    I asked all of my girls last Christmas and made them each a proposal box. I made them each boxes with monogrammed mugs that matched our theme, fuzzy socks, and lots of their favorite snacks with a note.

    I just wish I took a picture! Smiley angry

    I'm asking for Christmas! I'm giving them these cute boxes I found at the dollar store. I glued a picture to the lid and then put a makeup bag, fuzzy socks, nail polish, a face mask, and pony tail holders that say "I cant tie the knot without you. Will you be my _____?"
