Once he has proposed and you have returned back to earth from being on cloud nine, it’s time to start assembling the wedding you have always dreamed of! So start creating those Pinterest wedding boards and begin taking notes of all the things you like. As the wedding begins to take shape, you’ll want to start making decisions on who will be a bridesmaid in your wedding. For some brides, choosing who will be a bridesmaid is the easiest part. The difficulty is coming up with a creative way to ask them to be a part of your big day. To help get things kick started, we have compiled five ways you can ask your bridesmaids to be in your wedding. One just might be the right fit for you!
1) Bottle of Wine
Does wine always seem to make an appearance when you have a get together with the girls you want to ask to be your bridesmaids? If so, consider giving each a bottle of wine with a tag on the bottle asking them to be in the wedding. Plus, after they say yes, you can open up the bottle to celebrate!
2) Handwritten Card
With email, text messaging and social media becoming the most popular way to communicate these days, receiving a handwritten note has a lot more meaning.
3) Custom Bridal Party Apparel
This is our favorite, of course! Customize bridesmaid shirts and a maid of honor shirt for the women you want to have standing up in your wedding. By giving them a bridal party shirt with their name on it, they will instantly be filled with excitement about being a part of your big day.
4) Sending Something Sweet
If you have baking talent, why not make something sweet like cookies or brownies? You can even decorate them with the question of, “Will you be my bridesmaid?” It will be as sweet as the sugary delight you baked.
5) Ask the Group in Person
There’s nothing much better than spending some time with the girls you are closest to by going out for manicures or spending a fun day by the pool. This is the perfect time to ask all of them in person to be your bridesmaids.
