You've got your ladies picked out, now it's about asking them to stand by your side on your wedding day. How should you do it? We have a few ideas for you.
They've been with you through thick and thin and know you inside and out: popping the question to them should be a special moment. Think about it, you're almost asking them to take a job: as the months ahead will be filled with showers, dress hunting and fittings, cake tastings, helping with decisions on just about everything and many stressed out phone calls. So lavish them with a gift that says how much you appreciate them.
Being a good bridesmaid is no small feat. It takes a lot of patience, time, and money. Give them a gift that’s a little sentimental, lavish, and shows your thanks in advance. Let's talk about the moment you pop the question.
Popping the Question (To Your Bridesmaids)
You can ask everyone at once or one-on-one. Whatever you do, make the moment special by planning some time for just them. If you know all of them individually, then the moments can be just the two of you, if you know them as a group, create a group reveal. Whatever you do, setting your intention to do something that both of you/all of you enjoying doing together, sets the stage for conjuring good times and making new memories.
Top 5 "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" Gift Ideas + the Ultimate Moment
A spa day is a great way to go. But, hey no fret if you're not ready to splurge on a spa outing, this gift works amazingly even if you just have them over for champagne and have a spa day at home too. Our signature Body Mind and Spirit Gift or Relax and Restore would make the perfect way to start out the special day.
A Handwritten Card
We can't forget the importance of what a simple gift of sentiment can do. Expressing your feelings about your lady on paper is a lovely way for them to have a keepsake that will last for years to come. Write her a lovely note and then you could have her name carefully crafted in Calligraphy and floral design, as with Electric Eunice's beautiful designs.
Or better yet, take them to a hands on calligraphy class. That way down the road, they can help you with your invitations (totally joking, or am I?).
Wine and Dine them. Bring champagne or their favorite drink.
Another great way to ask them all is to have them over for a beautiful meal complete with an awaiting gift. I think everyone enjoys a good meal, and one with the all your ladies can be rare. Pair that with some passed champagne and a gift such as our Every Girl Gift, that has something sentimental like monogrammed cards, something girly (lip stain) and something meaningful like a beautiful brass wall hanging.
A Special Perfume or Oil to Call their Own
Every girl is different in style and beauty. I love the idea of taking her to a special place to pick her own scent, or picking it out for her! There are so many great places to go to make this happen. Le Labo comes to mind or Alchemologie in New York has classes you can take to make your own. How much fun would that be?!
A Garden Tea
Intimacy is key to making your lady feel loved. Inviting her into your home is actually quite intimate, and making her feel special with a lovely gift is quite nice. Have some champagne on hand, but invite her for an intimate proposal, a drink and some treats, then send her away with a gift to remember. Try a beautiful succulent or plant in a nice container (a symbol of you "growing" together), pair that with something for her tastebuds, like some tea and chocolate and you've made her day.
