12 Ways to Ask “Will You Be My Bridesmaid”


As a bride-to-be, likely one of the first things on your mind is planning your wedding. You may be hard at work ironing out all the details – which can be an exciting and tedious process.

But what’s one of the most fun parts of preparing for your big day? Deciding what ladies will be by your side.

When it comes to asking “Will you be my bridesmaid?”, you want it to be meaningful and creative.

To help you out, we have compiled this list of bridesmaid proposal ideas that are sure to have your ladies feeling special – and say “I do”!

12 Bridesmaid Proposal Ideas

Ready to “pop the question” to your bridesmaids? Here are some bridesmaid proposal ideas to get you started!

1) Box of Goodies

Another cute idea is to give each bridesmaid a box of their favorite things or mementos from moments you have spent together. You may include magnets, nail polish, snacks, or anything else that reminds you of them.

2) Engraved Shot Glasses

If your bridesmaids are ladies that love to have a good time, what better way you ask them than with personalized shot glasses?

You can get their own name engraved, or just the wedding name and date for them to remember the day by. You may even want to throw in some drink to go with them.

3) Personalized Pendants

This is top shelf option – get personalized necklaces made for your bridesmaids. Pair it with a meaningful message and you are good to go! And better still, we can help out with this one.

4) Bridesmaid “Survival Kit”

If your bridesmaids have a sense of humor, you can put together a “survival kit” for the day of the wedding.

Throw in a face mask, some panadol, snacks, water, or anything else to get them through. Afterall, being a bridesmaid is hard work too!

5) Cute Cards

Keep it simple with some pretty and handwritten cards to ask your ladies “Will you be my bridesmaid?”. They will appreciate the gesture, even if you decide not to go all out. You may even decide to design the cards yourself!

6) Yummy Sweets

Does your potential bridesmaid have a sweet tooth? Send her some sweets along with a message.

Some great ideas include personalized cupcakes, candy bags, a box of chocolates, biscuits, and more!

7) Mini Photo Album

Give your bridesmaids something to remember the big day with a mini photo album. They can collect flowers and notes from the wedding and fill them with their own pictures. Or, they can simply use them for photos of your friendship.

8) Gift Cards

Another simple option, you can give cards to your bridesmaids for their favorite places and restaurants. You may even bundle some options so they can have a full day of treatment – like a nail salon, restaurant, and a movie. They will surely appreciate it!

9) Group Spa Day

Rather than giving gift certificates to a spa, why not make a day of it with all of your best gals?

If your budget allows it, book a spa day for yourself and all of your bridesmaids. You could save it for later on in prep for your wedding day so that everyone is feeling happy and refreshed.

10) Pretty Candles

Who doesn’t love pretty scented candles? With this idea, you can make custom labels for them to remember the occasion. Get matching candles or send each lady her favorite scent. Tie it up with a bow and you are golden!

11) Creative Puzzle

You can find these creative puzzles on Etsy to ask your ladies in an interesting way. They are quite affordable and have many to choose from. You can even add your own picture!

Find your favorite wine and create a custom label that pops the question. Throw in some chocolates or maybe a bottle opener and you are ready to get the party started.
