Will You Be My Bridesmaid? Three Ways to Pop the Question

You chose the venue and secured the date: now is the time to pop the question to your bridesmaids. While a mass email or text is convenient, putting a little thought into the time-honored question goes a long away. This is a ripe moment to show your closest circle how much they mean to you. Wedding planner Jordan Payne of Jordan Payne Events recently founded The Welcome Bag Committee. As she points out, “Your wedding party spends a lot of money and resources to be a part of your big day. It is a beautiful gesture to thank them before anything kicks off.” Here are three ways you will get them to say “I do!”

Write Them a Love Note

You can’t go wrong with the written word. Pen your bridesmaid a thoughtful note, sentimental poem, or witty one-liner—whatever suits you best. Payne recommends telling each girl why you love them and then asking them to be your bridesmaid. You can always let the card do the talking: we are loving the cheeky “You Maid It” cards by Catherine Lowe’s stationary line LoweCo. Accompany your handwritten note with a mini bottle of Champagne to set a cheerful tone. If you’re feeling nostalgic, you can’t go wrong with a nicely framed picture of the two of you from middle school. The more braces, the better.

Leave It to the Gifting Professionals

If you want to shower your girls with treats but don’t feel like running all over the city, consider a gift box. Payne founded The Welcome Bag Committee to solve all your wedding gifting woes. Conveniently, she has an option for every occasion, including a “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” box. For her, it’s about the art of curation and the finding the best possible balance of elements. “I love bath and body products that are unique, items you do not see all over the place. I love adding in some beautiful sweets like custom chocolates with stunning packaging.” We are eyeing her best-selling “Beach Amore” set, stocked with all kinds of fiesta fun. She is in the process of creating a “build your own” concept, too. Stay tuned!

Get the Party Started

Why should you have to wait for the bridal shower or bachelorette to have some fun? Gather your girls for brunch and buy them a round of mimosas. Cheers—you’re “the ones!”

No matter what, being apart of your bridal party is an honor they will remember for the rest of their lives. Why not make it even more special?
