How to Ask Someone to be Your Bridesmaid

When it comes to asking one of your girlfriends to be your bridesmaid, the task can seem a bit overwhelming at times. Of course, you could ask them to be by your side on the big day — but that’s not as fun as giving them a gift or making a bridesmaid proposal! Need some inspiration? Here are some ways to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids on your wedding day:

Send a “Survival Kit”

One of the best ways to ask your friend to be your bridesmaid is to send her a care package or “survival kit” for the big day. Believe it or not, this will be one the best, yet personalized ways to ask. Of course, the kit doesn’t have to be extravagant — but it can be if you’d like it to.

To start, get a plain cardboard box that’s perfect for shipping. You don’t want to give away any hints before they open the package. Therefore plain will work best. From there, you can place either some packing peanuts or tissue paper confetti inside. Next, put some fun “essentials” in there for the big day, such as wine bottle opener and possibly a personalized wine glass, too.

Once that’s complete, you can place a card on top, asking the big question. Your gal pal will be so thrilled when she receives this fun, bridesmaid proposal at her front door (and we guarantee she’ll say yes)!

Host a Dinner Party

Another way to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids is to host a dinner party. Whether it’s in your home or you go out to a restaurant, the possibilities are endless and entirely up to you! Once everyone arrives, you can start with drinks, followed by appetizers. In between the “apps” and main course, that’s when you can break the news that you want everyone to be your bridesmaid!

If you’re looking to go the extra step, then you can get a little present for each, place it in a box under their chair and ask them to all open these “mysterious” gifts all at once. The look on their faces will be priceless — and the experience will be cherished for the years to come!

Record a Video

Notice that baby gender reveal parties are a big hit across social media? Take a note from these grand parties and record a video, naming those who will be your bridesmaids! Don’t be afraid to get creative — because the possibilities are utterly endless!

If you’re looking for the best idea, you can record yourself asking your friends and create a video montage of the moments! It will surely be a treasured keepsake, for sure!
