19 Awesomely Thoughtful Ways Brides Are “Proposing” To Their Bridesmaids

Congrats! You got your future spouse locked down, meaning next up is to make sure that your lovely ladies are there to back you up on your big day. While you probably spent a lot of time wondering just how your SO is going to get down on one knee, we doubt you had a chance to think about how you’re gonna ask your maids if they’ll stand up there by your side as you say “I do.” Keep in mind, these ladies are not only going to be spending a lot of time helping you plan and prepare for your wedding day, but they’re also probably spending a decent amount of their own money to make sure they look picture-perfect for you. So why not take a little extra time to let them know just how special each of them is, and how much you’d appreciate an emphatic “YES!” when you pop the question to your BFFs.

Make a collection of all of her favorite things.

She’ll feel appreciated knowing you know all the cute little nuances of her personality. And a few craft supplies too, if you’re planning on Pinterest’ing your wedding and need a few extra hands.

Pop a bottle together right after you pop the question!

Customized champagne flutes and glittery bottles are beautiful keepsakes. Be sure to remind your gals to bring these along to the bridal suite on the big day so you can sip mimosas together.

Invite your gal pals over for coffee, and as they sip from their cups…

A special message appears at the bottom of their mug. Better brew another pot, there’s gonna be LOTS to talk about!

Get your squad together for a mani-pedi date.

Then surprise each of them with their own shade of polish in a shade of your wedding, or a pretty neutral anyone can wear.

Let your favorite bottle of vino do the talking for you.

Because everyone loves a good pun. Especially when it comes with a keepsake that’ll also make your BTS wedding day photos look totes adorable.

Remind them that you’ll only accept tears of joy.

It’s even ok if they wanna start the waterworks early with your proposal. Just no ugly crying, please.

Make sure she can picture just how awesome it’s going to be.

Now she has a frame for a picture of the two of you getting ready together, cutting it up on the dance floor, or just posing pretty for the photographer.

Say it with sugar.

How sweet it is to be loved and to give love, especially when there’s candy involved.

These sweet sugar cookies let you ask the question, and get an answer too.

Unlike the “Yes/No” letters of middle school note-passing, a positive response is definitive when it’s intended recipient can also eat the message!

Tying the knot couldn’t be prettier.

Remember what I said about puns?

Or if knot earrings strike your fancy instead …

She’ll always remember how much she loved being by your side.

How about a set of cute hair ties?

She’ll want to keep her hair out of her face as she’s stuffing wedding invite envelopes and gluing glitter to votive holders.

Think outside the box.

Confetti and balloons make everything a celebration. I bet she’ll be happy if you do this one outside though.

Get lit.

Their glow of happiness at being included in your big day won’t be outdone by the flicker of this keepsake candle.

Make sure she knows you’ve got her back too, in case of “emergency.”

Because you never know when you’ll need a stick of gum, a nail file, bobby pins, or a tampon (because OF COURSE that would happen).

This pretty “Pop The Question” necklace has a certain ring to it.

This sweet necklace is so daintily pretty, she can wear it with her bridesmaid dress and with any outfit. Plus the keepsake card is already scrapbook-worthy.

Put it in writing.

If nothing else, simply telling her how much you love and want her by your side (in a humorous way, of course) is the best way to ask. Be sure to include a pack of tissues if your note expresses more of your sentimental side.

We had to do at least one for the groomsmen too!

Because your groom-to-be may need some help in this area. And honestly, how awesome would your wedding website look with coordinating mustachioed photos of the groomsmen?
