No one knows the bridesmaids better than the bride after all. Our goal today is to finalize a ‘will you be my bridesmaid box’ that puts a smile on your friend’s face. Are you ready to shop till you drop? Let’s get started!

Personalized Bridesmaid Proposal Box Ideas

There are lots of websites that sell pre-filled bridesmaid proposal boxes but there’s more fun in making them yourself. Nothing in the world can replace a personal touch. However, assorting the hamper with care, keeping in mind the preferences of your friends, is a time-consuming task. We know you’re a busy bee, especially if you’re the first bride among friends, and we’re here to make your life easier.

Remember, there are no rules or conventions – the bride is free to do what she wants! Roll the red carpet for these ideas that’ll help you pop the question in your ‘will you be my bridesmaid box.’

You can customize the box however you’d like – big or small, budget or luxury, etc. Take a look at our 20 bridesmaid proposal box ideas for some great ideas.

2. Will you be my bridesmaid message ideas?

The note should be sweet and simple. “I couldn’t say ‘I do’ without you” or “Will you stand by my side as I say ‘I do’?” or “It’s not a (bridal) party without you.” You need to mark your gratitude because your bridesmaid will be doing a lot for you in the coming weeks. Similarly, you want to ask the question, not impose.

3. What should a bridesmaids proposal say?

A bridesmaid proposal box should pop the question, naturally. It should be an invitation to join the bridal party. However, many brides choose to include a cost estimate of the wedding since they can be expensive. The bridesmaid should know exactly what she’s getting into.
