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
These nostalgia paper chain girls are a simple, inexpensive and much more personal alternative to sending a card. Click here for more more details and the DIY instructions.
2. Vintage Handkerchief
These keepsake handkerchiefs serve as gorgeous backdrops for the big question and for wiping away tears of joy when your girls see how gorgeous you look on your big day. Check out AllieRuth on Etsy to buy.
3. Wooden Spool
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,
