Curious how to ask your friends to be bridesmaids when they’ve witnessed your questionable fashion choices, participated in many wine nights, and are like a sibling? Do it in the most fabulous way of course! Make sure to give your closest friends and family a heads up if you want them to stand up with you on your wedding day. Plan to ask them as early as a year in advance or eight months before your wedding – that’s plenty of time for a legendary bachelorette party! Not sure how to pop the question? We’ve got you covered!
Once you’ve chosen your dream tribe of bridesmaids, now it’s time to ask them! If a sweet rhyme fits your wedding vision and their personality, here are some ideas to get you started.
Alternatively, if you and your best babes love comedy, use an inside joke or funny memory to ask them to be a part of your special day.
Instead of using humor or puns to pop the question, ask your girlfriends to be bridesmaids by making something special. Here’s a list to get your crafty side started!
Sweet treats go hand and hand with your sweet day! If your bridesmaid-to-be has a sweet-tooth, bake up some love – how could they refuse a bridesmaid invitation when chocolate’s involved!
What says, “be my bridesmaid” better than a t-shirt? Brainstorm your very own slogan or print one of these on a t-shirt for your crew.
If your girlfriend lives close by or you feel like taking a trip, asking in person is not only special, but provides the perfect opportunity for you to spend quality time with your bridesmaid-to-be. Do something new like a class, or do something you two have done for years.
In addition to a pun or cute card, gifting your girlfriends something special is another way to show appreciation. The bridesmaid gift can even be part of your wedding theme or prepare your bridesmaids for the party of the year! We love destination weddings (who doesn’t?) and adore coming up with fun destination-related gifts like a luggage tag or travel kit.
