Congratulations on your engagement! Now it’s time to start planning the wedding and picking your bridesmaids. Your best friends who you want by your side throughout the day. It’s an honour to be made someone’s bridesmaid, and no matter how you ask, they’ll be absolutely thrilled. We’ve put together some creative ways of popping the question.
Being engaged is such a wonderful time. There is so much ahead of you and you’ll get a flutter of excitement when you glance at the diamond ring on your finger. If bridesmaid-to-be love jewellery as much as you, why not get them a special piece and do a proposal of your own? Don’t worry, your friends wouldn’t be expecting flashy, expensive pieces. They know weddings aren’t cheap. A simple piece of jewellery would still be treasured.
Food and Drink
Or perhaps food is more your taste? There are lots of different ways you can use food and drink to ask the question. Cook a meal together and in true romantic style ask over dessert. Or you could order a Chinese takeaway and sneak the message into a fortune cookie. If you both love to bake, you could make your cake with the question written with icing. You know your best friend better than anyone, so you know what they would appreciate.
There are also lots of personalised bridesmaid gifts you could use. Again, this will depend on what you think your best friend will like the most. To fall back onto food and drink, you could get a personalised bottle of wine and the label could ask the question. If they love hot drinks, you could put a hidden message in a mug. Or maybe you could get a personalised cosmetic bag or robe, which they could use while getting ready on your wedding day.
Keep it Simple
You don’t have to have a big budget to ask someone to be your bridesmaid. It may sound a little cheesy, but the question itself is a gift. You could keep things simple and sweet. A card asking the question. A small photo album with some of your favourite memories together, with a space left for a picture from your wedding day. Your friend will cherish these thoughtful gestures.
However you end up asking your best friend to be your bridesmaid, they will be thrilled to help you on your special day. How would you ask someone to be your bridesmaid?
