So, you’re ready to ask your friends the big question, “Will you be my bridesmaid?”, but how are you going to do it? Whether you want to make a big gesture or keep it small and sweet, the Wedding Team at Delamere Manor has pulled together their favourite bridesmaid proposal ideas to give you some inspiration…
Make them a Bridesmaid Survival Kit
It’s no secret that wedding/hen party planning can be stressful, so why not prepare your friends by gifting them with a bridesmaid survival kit? Accompanied with a note asking them to be your bridesmaid, include a range of gifts including candles, hair ties, a bottle of gin and personalised chocolate treats.
Give them their Fortune
Providing the perfect girl’s night in with a movie and Chinese food, invite your friends over for a takeaway and once the food arrives, present them with personalised fortune cookies. Including messages asking them to be your bridesmaids, your friends won’t expect it and it will provide a great photo opportunity to capture their surprised faces!
Invite your friends for a pamper night and gift them each with a robe as you ask them to join your wedding party. Whether you opt for matching colours, prints or the classic white robes with monograms, these will look great for a photo on Instagram and will be a great gift for them to use at the hen party.
Say it with Cake
If you love to bake, why not make your bridesmaids-to-be some personalised sweet treats? Whether it’s cupcakes, cookies, biscuits or pies, your friends will appreciate the effort you have put in to creating these delicious bakes. If you’re not particularly talented at icing calligraphy, include a card with the big question for them to have as a keepsake.
Make it Personal
Sometimes it’s best to keep it personal to show your friends how much you would love for them to be a part of your wedding party. A couple of ideas include sending them a bouquet of their favourite flowers, buying them some accessories to wear at your wedding from their favourite jewellers or maybe even fill a personalised tote bag with their favourite things.
