If you are looking for some inspiration on how to pop the question, keep on reading!
Prepare Your Bridesmaid Gifts
The gift is one of the biggest – and most anticipated – parts of the bridesmaid proposal. Stick with the classics and opt for a combination of jewelry and personalized items. A stainless-steel wine tumbler with each girl’s name on it, and a pair of lovely pearl earrings would make for a memorable gift. After all, everybody loves wine and jewelry. And, if you want to go even further, you could purchase beautiful bridal pearl jewelry for yourself, so you and your bridesmaids can match on the Big Day.
Set a Date
For any event that you might be planning, you need to gather all your future bridesmaids in the same place and at the same time. It can be hard to find a day when everyone is available, so let your friends know that you want to celebrate your engagement, but try not to say too much. After all, you don’t want to end up ruining the surprise of the proposal.
Prepare a Cozy Night In – Or a Fun Night Out
Some of the most popular bridesmaid proposal ideas include brunch out, cozy pampering night in, movie night, wine tasting night, spa day, mani-pedi outing or, if your time and budget allows it, girls trip (or weekend getaway). Whatever you end up doing, think of the details: food and activities, plus a few touches of celebratory décor and accessories to make the day feel special. If you are feeling a bit nostalgic, prepare a digital photo collage with old pictures of you and each of your friends and view them together over a glass of wine.
Pop the Question
The big moment is here, so get ready. Blindfold each of your friends, bring out your bridesmaids gifts and place them in front of them. Once they remove their blindfolds, pop the question! They will definitely be pleasantly surprised and will say “YES” to being there by your side on your Big Day.
