He has finally asked that all important question – what’s next? Choosing your special ladies to share your big day with of course! “Bridesmaid proposals” are growing increasingly popular and just like engagements are becoming more and more elaborate. With the average bridesmaid spending literally £100’s on their dress, alterations, hair and makeup, accessories as well as the hen party, being a bridesmaid can prove to be a huge financial commitment.
After taking all of this into consideration, I decided to ask each one of my special ladies individually face-to-face. Just like everything else in life, researched a few ideas on the Internet. After stumbling across the initial idea of a “bridesmaid proposal”, I chose to base it around our wedding colour scheme (Pink and Pastels).
I also included an information pack which provided details on our wedding venue, date, potential dress designers, flower inspiration and a little biography on each of the girls. I included a pink Yankee candle, pink drink, pink sweets, pink cup, pink champagne truffles, pink nail polish and a pink paint chart to provide some inspiration for the bridesmaid dresses.
For my ‘Matron of Honour’ I also included a note pad to keep notes and ideas in and a love heart decor piece to make it extra special.
Obviously, you can tailor this idea to each of your special ladies. I actually decided to get a nice necklace and some scented drawer liners for one of my bridesmaids. If you are on a tight budget, then why not propose to each of your special ladies by ordering them a beautiful card from (notonthehighstreet.com) this also ensures that they have something to treasure in years to come, as they can pop this into a photo frame.
What do you think of this idea? Would you like to see a post on a “Best Man Proposal”? I hope you have enjoyed this post and I look forward to seeing you next Wednesday for more “Wedding Wednesday”.
