Deciding who will be in your bridal party is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning. Whether you ask sisters, cousins, or best friends it’s a joyous time for all. While being a part of someone’s wedding is fun, it’s also a lot of work. So make sure you ask your girls in the most meaningful and memorable way possible! While “bridesmaid proposals” are in right now, make this moment the best it can be and get your girls gifts that they can save and use on your wedding day. Paired with a card asking the standard, “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” consider these ideas:
You can’t go wrong with jewelry! Believe it or not, thinking of what accessories you want your bridesmaids to wear can help expedite the planning process. If you’re thinking your girls are going to be in strapless dresses, consider getting them matching necklaces. Maybe you’re envisioning your bridesmaids in halter top dresses, consider getting them simple knot bracelets to have on the big day. Maybe you haven’t made your mind up yet. That’s fine too! Word to the wise, simple goes with everything! Remember, on your big day, even the smallest of details are noticeable.
This may seem a little out of the box. But imagine gifting a pair of stylish sunglasses to your wedding party. Not only would you be giving a practical gift that an be used every day, but you’re setting yourself up for some great wedding day photos! It’s another small detail that can distinguish your wedding party from the rest! Bulk ordering is a great option that makes it easier to order large quantities. You can order the same frames for everyone, or go a more personalized route and get each person a pair that is unique to them – or, get a cool gift set like this one on Etsy!
Tumblers are another example of a functional present. They can also be used multiple times throughout your wedding process! Getting each girl a tumbler with her name on it is both personable and unique! Suggest that they bring them to your bridal shower, your bachelorette party, and of course the day of the wedding! They’re perfect to use while you’re all getting your hair and makeup done. WIth all of the hussle and bussle that comes with the hours leading up to the moment you say “I do,” there is bound to be some spilled drinks along the way. With lids on everyone’s cups, it could prevent the nightmare scenario that is a spilled drink on your wedding dress!
To the same sentiment, consider giving something a little classier like a wine glass. What says will you be in my wedding like a new glass and a small bottle of champagne? After she (hopefully) says yes, you’re prepared to pop a bottle and celebrate the start of your wedding festivities! These wine glasses can be used specifically for the reception. Not only will it distinguish your wedding party, but it can also make photos of bridal party table really pop!
There you have it! Four ideas for gifts you can give for your “bridesmaid proposal” that can be used for more than one occasion! You truly can’t go wrong when it comes to asking your people to be in your wedding. It’s one of the most special moments, and simply being asked says it all!
