Planning bridesmaid proposals? Here are some cute bridesmaid proposal sayings that rhyme — and some that don’t — when you pop the question! Read on for some ideas + subscribe for the latest to your inbox.
Your wedding is an exciting time. There’s the fun stuff — like picking a wedding dress, wedding cake sampling, planning the guest list — and the not so fun stuff, like budgeting and figuring out your timeline. Bummer! But those things will eventually get done and you can, for now, have a little fun with it: pop the question to your bridesmaids and ask them to be a part of your wedding.
They will be your support team, after all, so you’ll want a solid crew of BFFs to lean on!
When you ask a bridesmaid to be in your wedding, it is known as a bridesmaid proposal. You can ask in person, on the phone, or by sending a gift.
It can be as elaborate as one of these bridesmaid boxes or as simple as a card. A small piece of jewelry (this one is under $8!) is a sweet way to ask, too.
There’s no wrong way to do it, as long as you ask early! :)
When to ask bridesmaids to be in your wedding
The best time to ask bridesmaids to be a part of your wedding is ASAP. You’ll likely want to ask once you have a date and location set, so they know exactly what kind of timeline you’re working with (and whether or not they are able to travel). Once you set the date, it’s a good time to pick out who will be a part of your wedding party.
Note: This simple “will you be my bridesmaid” card is super cute and I like the calendar portion! By MJpaperieShop.
Bridesmaid proposal mistake to avoid
The biggest mistake to avoid when asking bridesmaids to be at your wedding is not being 100% sure you want to ask a certain person. You don’t have to ask someone to be in your wedding just because they asked you to be a bridesmaid in yours. It is important to select those who support your marriage and like your partner; a bridesmaid should be excited for you and willing to participate in the celebrations leading up to and including your wedding day.
Now that you know more about how to ask — and what to avoid — let’s talk about how to pop the question. Here are some bridesmaid proposal ideas you’ll love to use when asking your besties to take part in your big day.
