How I Asked My Bridesmaids

Today I am excited to share with y’all how I decided to “propose” to my bridesmaids. Asking my girls to be in our wedding has been one of the most fun parts of wedding planning so far! I loved seeing the reactions from my closest friends & family when they opened the boxes asking them to be my bridesmaid! I am so blessed to get to share our big day with the most amazing group of ladies!

When thinking about how to ask them, I knew I wanted something cute and fun, but also affordable because I have 8 girls. I started Pinteresting and looking on Etsy, and came across such a cute Etsy page called ModParty which took me to her wedding store, Wedding Favorites! She makes the cutest things for weddings from personalized robes, hats, bags, bridesmaids gifts and "proposal" boxes! The tops of the boxes were also personalized with each girl’s name, and with the question "Will you be my bridesmaid/MOH?". There are 9 different colors you can choose from, and I chose to go with blush & gold! I decided to go with gift boxes because they came with 5 different items in each box, and I wanted to give all the girls a little gift since they are giving us the gift of being in our wedding! In each box there was a champagne flute that said “cheers”, which I think we can all use on wedding the day while we are getting ready with our mimosa. This will make for really cute pictures! There was also a candle, matches, chapstick and a small makeup mirror with their name on it.  Each girl loved their gift and I can’t wait to have them stand by my side on my wedding day!

I wanted to personalize the boxes and "proposal" a little more, so I included a special note to each one of them in their box! As I was searching through Pinterest, I found free printables that were super cute, and each said something funny! Always check Pinterest first before going out and buying cards, because they have tons of free printable ones. All I had to do was download them and print them out on card stock – super easy & completely free! Click here for the printable cards!

Each box cost around $30, which I thought was pretty reasonable. If I would have had to buy the boxes and individual items separately, I feel it would have been a lot more expensive and I wouldn't have been able to personalize them as well.

If any of you girls are trying to decide on how to ask your bridesmaids, I highly recommend visiting Wedding Favorites! They were super nice and easy to work with. I only had to mail one box but if you have to mail more, they are super lightweight which helps save money on shipping! I’m so happy with how everything turned out, and I hope this is helpful for any future brides looking for an affordable way to ask your bridal party. Stay tuned for more wedding fun!
