Hey everyone, I'm curious to know how you asked your bridal party to be your bridesmaids/bridesmen? I did some DIY and put together my bridesmaid proposal boxes and I loved the personal touches that I was able to add. My girlfriends loved the boxes!
Oh boy, everyone is putting me to shame. I got engaged September of 2020. So my bridesmaid proposal for my one friend was 6ft apart in a parking lot sitting in our cars. So classy right? My other friend lives 3 hours away so I asked her over the phone. And for my only sister, I sent a wine tumbler as a way to ask to be my maid of honour. I had her call me when she got a surprise package. Way less elaborate but my girls I think were okay with it. To make it up to them I got small gifts for them at the bachelorette. For the rehearsal dinner (day before) I am going to give them a custom gift box I made with cute stuff for the wedding day they may have not thought of and personalized it to their favourite colours. I stuck to only one thing in the gift box that says “maid of honour” or “bridesmaid” on it so they can definitely use it after the wedding. The makeup bags are filled with “survival wedding day stuff”. Just to clarify that small tube is totally a travel sized perfume holder so they can put their favourite scent in it. I have had people say it looks like it holds one of those necessities for ladies. Whoops.
I made a card for my best friend and it said "I can't do this without you. Will you be my Maid Of Honor?" And I gifted her with a wine glass. Thought it was fitting since I'm getting married at a winery!
We did boxes in a very similar way that you did yours. My fiancee put things for a bubble bath along with a customized wine glass and personal small wine/liquor bottle in the boxes. For the groomsmen it was similar, except with shaving cream, razor & aftershave and personalized liquor glass with a small rum or scotch bottle, depending on the person. Then, we went to dinner with each member of the party (or had them over at our home) and gave them the box.
