Congratulations! The man of your dreams got down on one knee and asked you to be his wife! Now, it’s your turn. You get to ask your best friends to be a huge part of your big day! From Pinterest to Etsy, there are so many fun ideas for popping the question to your girls. Here are 3 unique ways to ask your girls to be your bridesmaids:
Sweets and Treats – There’s nothing better than a personalized sweet to ask your girls! We love these adorable cookies by Birmingham’s own Reagan Lyle at Reabakes. They look almost too good to eat! There’s also the amazing Dana’s Bakery that will ship delicious macarons straight to your maids front door with a personalized note!

Fill a Box – We love this idea because it’s fun to put together and you can completely personalize it for each of your girls! Find a cute box (stores like Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Target would be a great place to start!) and then fill it up with small, fun items like a bath bomb, candle, face mask or whatever you think your friends might like best! There’s even pre-made boxes for our busiest brides!

A Quirky Card – If your girls love a good laugh, a cute card is the way to go. It’s simple but memorable and your girls will hold onto that special card forever! Add to it your bridesmaids box or to a special present and you have the perfect proposal.

Jewelry- Every girl loves pretty jewelry right? Gifting your girls with a new necklace or earrings is a great way to ask them to be in your wedding and make sure they have something shiny to wear on your big day! This piece can compliment your wedding colors or add a touch of personalization to your big question.
