Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating the love we have in our lives; sometimes that love is romantic and sometimes that love is for the people who keep us strong, level-headed and laughing through life — our nearest and dearest friends, including the besties who we want to be our bridesmaids.
If you’re newly engaged and looking forward to using the Valentine’s Day holiday as the time when you ask your closest gal pals to be members of your wedding squad, aka bridal party, here are four cute ways to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids on V-Day.
Send Them a Singing Telegram
Hire a singing telegram, whether it’s a local a cappella group or a person who specializes in telegrams, to deliver the message to your soon-to-be bridesmaid. Pick their favorite song and customize the words so that every single bridesmaid gets asked in a different and very fun way.
Say It With Candy
Since candy is the key to a lot of people’s hearts on Valentine’s day, try something cute and sweet. You could spell out “will you be my bridesmaid” with candy hearts, or customize an assortment of their favorite candy at a specialty shop like Dylan's Candy Bar and put a note at the very bottom of the bag or tin, so they can find it as they are giving in to their sweet tooth.
Throw a Valentine’s Day Party
Even though you have your fiancé to spend Valentine’s Day with, that doesn't necessarily have to stop you from throwing a V-day party where you bring all your potential future bridesmaids together and ask them all at the same time!
Use Cupid as Your Delivery Man
Ask one of your guy friends to dress up like cupid and have him give each of your future 'maids the message in a fun cute way. If any of your bridesmaids live far away, one thing you could do to make them feel special and included is send them a video where you have cupid asking them the question and then you pop into the screen — and ask them yourself with a personal message.
