When planning her Big Day, a bride has many decisions to make–each seeming more important and intricate than the last. Between choosing the type of filler flower for her bouquet, to devising a signature cocktail that is both pleasing to the palate and perfectly reflective of you and your fiancé’s personalities–things can get a bit overwhelming. How many mimosas is one to many “just to calm your nerves,” on your wedding day? How do you guarantee the best man doesn’t slip-up and tell that embarrassing story of your college days during his toast at the rehearsal dinner? The answer is those lovely ladies that you spent hours deciding on the perfect shade of purple for their dresses- this one is all about your bridesmaids.
Being a bridesmaid is quite a commitment, and it’s important to keep that in mind before asking each of your favorite girls. They’re committing their time, their money, and occasionally their sanity, to help make your Big Day everything you’ve dreamt of. That being said, make asking each of your maids a little more special, and personalize your bridesmaid proposal. Put together a little box with a few of their favorite things, or make them something to encapsulate what you envision for your wedding day. Shopfor things to put in your box. Let them know how important they are to you, and thank them for being a part of your Big Day. After all, it would be a little tough to imagine saying those two little words without them, wouldn’t it?
