Did your special someone just propose to you and you’re tying the knot soon? If yes, then first of all CONGRATULATIONS! And second, how will you pop the second most important question? Puzzled? Well, we are talking about your honorary task as the bride to ask your favorite girls if they’re willing to undertake the duties of bridesmaids for you. Why you ask? Let’s just put it this way: it is the job of an entire squad to set you right when you unleash the inner bridezilla (involuntarily, of course), find a way to smuggle snacks to you when you’re hungry, sabotage the photographer’s chances of clicking unflattering photos, hold up layers of can-can while you pee, hold back your hair if you have one too many drinks on your cocktail. We could go on but you get the gist, right? Doing it over the phone or (gasps) email are obviously some options, but what’s the fun in that? So we have made a list of ways you can pose the question to make your special ladies feel loved.
A box of happiness
This box could be a mix of essentials such as champagne, chocolate, cosmetics, scented candles, etc and customary mushy things like handwritten notes and framed photographs.
Gift wrap a box with a balloon filled with confetti and give your bridesmaid a little drama with the theatrical element of popping a balloon.
If your heart lies in the 1920’s then you’re definitely a vintage soul. And to pay tribute to that, you can hand out vintage keys to your bridesmaids with personalized tags. Getting the keys etched could make it more personalized.
Get down on one knee and propose to her with a ring. Literally. Don’t freak out, we’re not asking you to buy several diamond rings, just several candy ring pops! It’s a sweet gesture and will take your lady love back to the 90’s, feeling all nostalgic.
All you need is love, but a little jewellery never hurt anybody. Make your girls shine by splurging on customized sterling silver necklaces or earrings.
If you are on a strict budget or just don’t want to invest in gifts then you can go the frugal way by printing (or making) humorous or affectionate cards, it’s the thought that counts!
