5 creative ways to ask your bridesmaids

Asking your bridesmaids to be a part of your big day should be a special moment…after all, these girls will be the ones keeping you sane throughout the planning process, helping you out with tedious tasks and putting up with your Bridezilla moments. You could keep it simple with a card and a heart-felt message, or go one-step further by popping the question to your girls in a way that will make them feel extra special and jumping  for joy that you’ve asked them to be a part of your big day in such a thoughtful and creative way.

I haven’t quite decided how I’m going to ask my girls yet, but I’ve spent a lot of time looking at different and unique ways of popping the question, here are some of my favourites:

1. Paper Chain Girls

4. Bridesmaid Box

Give your girls the low-down on your wedding plans by filling a box with details of the wedding, photos of inspiration, colour schemes etc. That way they’ll feel much more involved in your big day. Read the full step-by-step guide here.

5. Scrabble Ring

Want to know how your fiance felt when he got down one one knee and proposed? Pop the question to your girls individually with their very own ring, initialed either ‘B’ for Bridesmaid or for their first name. Find out how to make your own Scrabble Rings or buy them online.

Keep calm and marry on,
Jacqui.
