“Will You Be My Bridesmaid?”

“Will You Be My Bridesmaid?”
Our Top Six Picks for Proposing to Your Bridal Party

So your man popped the question and you’re planning your big day!  If you’re like most brides, you’ll want to have a group of your favorite girls standing by your side when you say “I do.”
The ladies you choose to share in your special day have probably played an important role in your life, so use your bridesmaid request as an opportunity to tell them how much they mean to you.

Here at My Scratch Offs, we are always happy to help our brides come up with fun and creative ways to make their wedding more memorable.  So without further adieu, here are six of our favorite ways to “propose” to your bridesmaids.

The Bridesmaid Box

We love the tutorial for a DIY Bridesmaid Box by Something Turquois.  Present your lovely ladies with a gift box full of goodies.  Include a mini bottle of Champagne, a bridesmaid tank top, pictures of the two of you and a thoughtful note explaining how much she means to you and why you want her to stand by your side on your wedding day.

Labels for Your Ladies

Ask it with something to sip, something to dip, or a pampering treat.  Wine, gourmet foods, and spa gifts can all be personalized with custom labels that will not only pop the question of, "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" but will also make your girls feel so pampered when you ask them to be in your wedding party.  And to add an extra element of fun and surprise, consider adding a Scratch Off Label on top of your customized label.

Message in a Bottle

Are you planning a destination wedding?  If so, then we love the way this idea from Little White Dog fits the theme.  A short, sweet message tucked inside a cute little vessel is a creative way to ask your big question.

Some “Bling” for Your Besties

“Propose” to your girls the same way your guy proposed to you.  It doesn’t have to be expensive, but a pretty piece of jewelry is a great gift to give your girls when you ask your question.  You may want to give them something to wear on the actual day of the wedding, or even just a simple handmade ring, bracelet or necklace that features a delicate knot, heart, or infinity symbol.

“Pop” Your Question… Literally

We love this idea from Quiet Like Horses!  Tuck your message into a balloon with some confetti and have each of your bridesmaids pop the balloon to find their personalized note.

A Clutch for Your Sidekicks

Similar to the Bridesmaid Box idea, but even more useful!  Consider purchasing Monogrammed clutches for your bridesmaids that can be used the day of the wedding.  Fill the clutch with pictures, a sentimental note, a pair of sunglasses or a piece of jewelry.
