8 Ways To Master The Bridesmaid Proposal

1 / 8

Say It With Stationery

Never underestimate the power of words when it comes to asking the big question. A traditional card may be simple, but it leaves plenty of room to express how much your bridesmaid-to-be means to you. We love the selection at Paperless Post which you can customise for that extra special touch! Or, for something a little different, how about a whimsical scratch-off design that lends an appropriate thrill to the occasion?

Get Lit: Personalised Candle

Everyone loves a candle – especially when it comes in a personalised ribbon-wrapped gift box. We like this as a bridesmaid proposal option because it’s something your bride squad can actually use and love every day. This Etsy option is 100% soy and comes in a range of themed scents including “bridal bouquet” and “wedding cake”.

Bling Ring

We don’t know about you, but shiny things are a surefire way to grab our attention, making jewellery the perfect bridesmaid proposal tactic if you want to guarantee a hard yes from your ladies. Pop the question in style with a dainty gold monogrammed necklace that your squad can rock on the big day. We’re especially drawn to the collection at Kookii B, whose timelessly minimal pieces mean this gift can be worn long after the festivities are over.

Something Sweet

Is your bridal party full of sweet tooths? Then sugary treats could be the way to go for your bridesmaid’s proposals. Homemade goodies are always a nice gesture (may we recommend these Sassy-approved Dark Chocolate Truffles?). However, for the culinary-averse, Sugarfina has your back with this Candy Bento Box Gift Set.

Beauty Queen

A bridal-themed keepsake will (literally) make your bridesmaid proposals last forever, and this beauty pouch ticks all the boxes. It’s understated chic whilst still wedding festivity-ready. Bonus points if you fill it with your ladies’ favourite makeup products!

Coffee Date

Don’t be fooled by this very ordinary looking mug, for inside it hides a very important message. We love the idea of combining this physical gift with a personal touch by inviting your bridesmaids-to-be over for a coffee (or tea) date. Indulge in some quality time together before the big reveal is discovered at the bottom of the mug.

The Balloon Pop

Cameras at the ready – the balloon pop is a verified Instagram darling, and now you and your bridal party can get in on the action too. This DIY kit has everything you need to create your very own confetti-filled balloon, complete with an adorable heart “popping” stick and a personalised message for you to tuck inside.

Boozy Brunch

Why not start as you mean to go on with a decadent brunch to initiate your besties into the bride squad? Living in Hong Kong means there’s no shortage of free flow options to get the party started. Plus it’ll be a good opportunity to let your hair down before the whirlwind that is wedding planning begins. Other, more relaxing, variations on this bridesmaid proposal idea include afternoon tea, a spa day, or craft class!
