How to Make a Bridesmaid Proposal Box?

To give you the best advice on making your  bridesmaid boxes, we caught up with Team Hen founder Danielle Kendall who shares her top tips: "Asking your besties to be your bridesmaids is one of the most exciting parts of getting engaged! With countless creative ideas circulating on social media for popping the all-important question, it can be overwhelming to decide how to approach your closest friends," she explains.

Keep Things Personal

"The secret to a truly heartfelt bridesmaid proposal lies in its personal touch. Take a moment to reflect on what makes your friendship uniquely special. Share a cherished memory that tugs at your heartstrings, or better yet, incorporate those inside jokes that only you two understand. This thoughtful approach demonstrates the effort you've put into this momentous question," says Danielle.

It Doesn't Have to Cost Loads

Reassuring nearlyweds they don't have to spend a fortune on this, Danielle says, "The best part about assembling bridesmaid proposal boxes? You don't need to break the bank. Often, the homemade aspects of a proposal are the most cherished. So, unleash your inner DIY guru.

"Craft a charming card or even a mini scrapbook that weaves the beautiful story of your friendship together. Infuse it with humour and heartfelt sentiments to make it truly exceptional."

Decide How to Deliver Them

But how to get it to them? Danielle advises nearlyweds to, "Consider the location of your squad; if they're nearby, hosting a bridesmaid brunch could be the way to go. Plan a laid-back brunch or coffee date with your besties, and casually introduce the idea over a plate of avocado toast or over lattes. This chilled approach will take them by surprise, creating a memorable moment.

"Now, if your friends are scattered across the map, embrace technology. Organise a virtual hangout on platforms like Zoom or Skype. During the call, unveil a fun "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" slide on your screen. Seeing their reactions on camera will be priceless.

"For an extra surprise for those too far to meet in person, consider mailing out your Bridesmaid Proposal boxes to arrive before a specified date. Include a note instructing your friends not to open them until the designated moment arrives. It's the perfect way to build up anticipation and excitement!"

What To Put in a Bridesmaid Proposal Box?

If you are wondering what to put in a bridesmaid proposal box, our edit of bridesmaid proposal gifts above will give you tons of inspiration. You can opt for special accessories, such as bridesmaid jewellery, that your crew can keep forever, tasty treats, pampering products or even gifts that they can bring along to the hen party and wedding day. 

To help you even further, here are Danielle's must-haves when it comes to putting these together:

Start with a pretty bridesmaid box or bag, and a card - but remember, it's what’s inside that counts!

I would always include;

Something to Drink - a miniature shot, or bottle of fizz will always go down well and means she can toast the occasion in style

Something to Wear - Depending on your budget, this could be a stylish kimono or something as simple as a pair of bridesmaid socks

Something to Write In - There is no hiding it, we all know the bridesmaid will need to be making notes whenever they meet with the bride in the run-up to the big day. A notebook and pen is a really useful gift she will treasure and use…a lot!

Bridesmaid Candle - Who doesn’t love a candle, especially as the nights draw in. S be sure to include a candle the bridesmaid can light when she needs to chill.
