Bridesmaid gifts

17 fun ways to ask “will you be my bridesmaid?”

While the marriage proposal generally falls to the groom, it doesn’t mean you should miss out on popping the question; you get the privilege of asking your best girls to be by your side as you walk down the aisle, when you ask them “will you be my bridesmaid?”

While we don’t suggest you get down on one knee (you don’t want to steal the thunder of the loves in their life!), there are bundles of unique and creative ways you can ask the big question – with no diamond needed!


Since your bridesmaids will be your right hand women through all the table planning, cake tasting and the odd meltdown, it’s only right to make a fuss of them to kick off all the festivities. Let them know how much they mean to you through your bridesmaid proposal, be it with a heartfelt card, a gorgeous piece of jewellery or a beautiful balloon – after all, you’re not a bride without your girls by your side.

Delight your bridesmaid-to-be with this classy and fabulous helium filled balloon, with the all important question etched on in gold. The balloon is filed with heart shaped confetti, while the string is adorned with pink and purple bridesmaids’ dresses and red hearts.  The balloon arrives in a big box, floating out one the box is opened, for a delightfully unexpected surprise – you can even have a personalised message written on the balloon for an extra special touch.  Note tags can be added too, if you want to leave your pal in no doubt over who their pretty parcel came from.
