Proposing to my bridesmaids was one of my favorite parts of the whole wedding experience! It was so fun being able to put together a little box full of things I knew my besties would love. There are many Pinterest ideas on how to pop the question to your bridesmaids, but creating a personalized box was by far the best idea I came across! I’m going to tell you the steps I took to create these boxes for my girls.
Step one: Decide what you want to include in the box. When I was creating my boxes, I knew I wanted to include my wedding colors (blush & gold), something sentimental, and some fun little additions (candy, lip balm, nail polish). Besides all of the items I wanted in the boxes, I wanted to fill the boxes with gold metallic shred. I also bought pink ribbon to tie around their boxes once they were completed. I added all of those items to my shopping list and went out and got everything I needed.
Step two: Buy boxes. Sounds simple, right? I actually had to hunt around for a while to find the perfect boxes for my ladies. I wanted to find a durable box that they could keep forever if they wanted. I found the perfect white glossy boxes at The Container Store!
Step three: Personalize the boxes. This step was very important to me! I wanted to get my bridesmaids monograms on each of their boxes. Like I said in step one, I wanted this to be a personal and sentimental gift, so getting gold monogram decals for their boxes was the perfect touch.
Step four: Assemble the boxes. Now this is the fun part! Once you have all of your supplies, it’s time to put the boxes together! I added the gold shred and then started arranging the items in the box. I played around with them for a while until they were placed in an order that I liked.
Step five: Buy “proposal” cards for your maids. Etsy has SO many adorable options for bridesmaid proposal cards. I kept going back to the ones that said “I can’t say “I Do” Without You!” The inside of the card said, “Will you be my bridesmaid?” When I bought those cards on Etsy, I was able to choose between many different envelope colors, and I chose gold to go with my theme.
Step six: Give your boxes to your bridesmaids! This was my favorite step of all. It was so fun getting to see my best friends’ faces when they opened their boxes. I had so much fun creating these boxes for them, and it made it even more worth it when they accepted my “proposal”!
