Now that we have started to seriously start planning our wedding I have been thinking about who I want to be my bridesmaids (totally acting like I hadn’t chosen them before R even proposed). Who will be the people I need by my side on that big day doing the important jobs? Now that I have decided who those lucky ladies are, I thought what with me being a) a blogger and b) Pinterest addicted I should think a little outside of the box and ask my best girls to be my maids in a more outstanding fashion than a text message. Obviously I asked my fellow bloggers for ideas on Pinterest worthy bridesmaid proposals; here are a few of the ideas I got:
Codie of Codiekinz decided that she would make a cute little gift to propose to her bridesmaids.
Meanwhile, Laura at Mummy Lala got her hopes up when her friend sent a wrapped up present with “Will you be…” written on it, hoping for a marriage proposal from her other half, but was actually proposed to by her best friend who wanted her to be a bridesmaid. Disappointment and excitement all at once!
Laura at Wafflemama gave two of her bridesmaids a card which resulted in lots of squealing. Her other bridesmaid was her BFF who didn’t require asking, it was an unsaid promise of everlasting friendship – Laura even promised that she could wear black, but if she misbehaved there’d be a large bow on her bottom! That is the sign of true friendship
Like Laura, Deborah at Super Busy Mum bought some really cute cards from etsy to propose to her bridesmaids. Etsy is a fab marketplace for finding unique items that you wouldn’t find on the high street. One of the most fabulous items I found while looking for bridesmaid proposals was this balloon pop kit from Petite25
But what to put in these boxes? Mode Lily has some fabulous recommendations for what to put in a beauty box for your maids.
Laura at Top Style Advice included some goodies and a personalised card.
Alternatively, you could be like Lucy at The Parent Game who just asked over Facebook, or Azaria who just got drunk and asked in a nightclub loo – now that seems like much less effort!
