You’ve landed the guy of your dreams, and he’s already popped the question!
The next thing you need to do is ask your best friends to be by your side on the big day. But they're special, and awesome, and amazing. For these girls, a phone call or text just won’t do.
You want to ask them creatively, but you might be at a loss for how to go about it. If you need some help narrowing down your ideas, here are five fun ways to give your friends an upgrade from bestie to bridesmaid.
Bridesmaids Gift Box
One of the most popular ways to ask if to give each of your bridesmaids a custom gift box with their name on it. If you have some special items unique to your friendship, why not include those? They’ll love the meaning behind it, and everyone loves things with their name on them, right?
Bridesmaids Proposal Puzzle
This is a creative way to ask the bonafide problem solvers in your life. They’ll love the fun challenge of putting together the puzzle, and the cute message that it reveals. You can use a photo of the two of you to make the puzzle extra special.
This gift also doubles as a great photo-op on the day of your wedding. A beautiful kimono type robe with their names is a perfect way to ask those special girls in your life. Not only this, but they’ll be able to use the robe time and time again, and we’re sure they’ll think of you every time.
Box of Sweets
Our favorite way to ask is to present your best friends with a box of sweets. There are so many directions that you can take this idea. If you have a friend who loves cookies, you can do a box of cookies with the question on the inside. If another friend loves chocolates, what about a box of chocolate-covered strawberries? The alphabet donut trend is also still riding strong and you can never go wrong with some deep-fried delectables! The possibilities are endless!
Bridesmaids Coloring Card
If you’re pretty artistic, why not design your art card? You can gain some inspiration from existing cards, and tweak them to make it personalized for you and your friends. They’ll love seeing mini versions of themselves on the cards. You’ll also get to have a nice break from all the craziness of wedding planning to let out some stress in a healthy, artistic way.
However you choose to go about this, they will love it regardless.
These are your BFFs – and no matter how extravagant or simple you go, they'll be thrilled that you simply even wanted them to be a part of your big day.
