Your future spouse may have just popped the question, but now it's your turn—hello, bridesmaid proposal gifts! Because your wedding day obviously wouldn't be complete without your best friends by your side (and to hold your dress while you use the restroom), your future bridal party deserves to be asked for their hands in planning/assisting/shopping/hosting with a grand gesture as meaningful as your own engagement (sans diamond ring).
To put it even more in perspective, bridesmaids are essentially the behind-the-scenes stars of all weddings. Your bachelorette party? Count on your crew to organize a final fling before the ring you'll all talk about for ages. What about caving to your fashion wants and splurging on your bridesmaid gowns of choice with zero hesitation or complaints? Not all heroes wear capes—they wear purple silk chiffon and own it. And let's not forget about any stress-induced meltdowns on your end, because who will be there to piece you back together? You guessed it—your bridesmaids. At the end of the day, your 'maids have a lot of work cut out for them.
That's why your friends deserve something special. Bridesmaid proposal gifts encapsulate "I love you and appreciate you" paired with a side of "I WILL need you to wipe my tears when my dream venue falls through." To get the point across, there's no shortage of ready-to-ship gift boxes, filled to the brim with personalized goodies and a "Will you be my bridesmaid?" card. Alternatively, you can woo your crew with proposal cookies, chocolates, mini piñatas, and even a surprise coffee mug (you'll see!). No bridesmaid proposal idea could be complete without a piece of corresponding stationery, either, to pen sweet validations to your dearest friends.
However you decide to propose to your bridesmaids, be it a box or card, no one will be able to resist saying "yes!" to any of these 20 creative bridesmaid proposal gift ideas.
Bridesmaid Proposal Piñata
Pop the champagne [piñata] to celebrate your bridal crew. Whether paired with more goodies or simply sent with a card, each personalized party essential comes equipped with a removable bottom to make way for your choice of filling. These can even make an encore appearance at your bachelorette.
"Simple Chic" Bridesmaid Cards by Angela Thompson
For modern 'maids, keep it short (and just as sweet) with this minimal card.
"Nail the Proposal" Bridesmaid Proposal Gift
Skin balm and cuticle oil and soap bar, oh my! Nothing says "I love you and need you at my wedding" quite like a nail-inspired kit (hello, self-care score).
Will You Be My Bridesmaid Box
A silk sleep mask, eyelash ring dish, facial tonic spray, and a mini travel candle all cater to the beauty gurus in your future wedding party crew. Bubble candy bites, a stemless champagne flute, gold paper straw, and matchsticks don't hurt, either.
BOXFOX Gift Box
If you know standard bridesmaid memorabilia isn't their thing (all-pink-and-personalized everything isn't everyone's cup of tea), pop the question with a more evergreen kit that feels just as sentimental. BOXFOX allows you to send your besties pre-made themed packages with to-die-for goodies, or you can assemble your own unique boxes with an assortment of beauty, beverage, food, and home picks. The "Love you, mean it" card says it all, but let it show with a Corkcicle champagne flute, velvet bow, luggage tag, and more.
Another definitive way to warrant an unanimous "Yes" out of your crew? A wedding cake scented candle, sealed with a pretty bow in a "Say you'll be my bridesmaid" box.
