We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! A BIG CONGRATS to all the beautiful couples who announced their engagements this past little while. We couldn’t be more excited for you for what’s ahead!
So what are some of the very first things we do when the question is first popped and you exclaim with a resounding ‘yes’? Sharing it with all our dearest family and friends of course!
Some of the most important people are your bridal party. If you’re like me, chances are, you already know who your closest pals are and it should be easy to ask the chosen ones, right? You’re almost certain they’ll say yes, and then you’ll pop a bubbly and celebrate. But why not make it a bit more special and propose to your bridal party in a unique and personalized way?
Here are some of my favourite ways to “pop the question” to the fave gals in your life:
1. Personalize Your Message on Their Favourite Indulgence
Attach a personalized sticker writing “Will you be my bridesmaid?” and their names to their favourite wine. Starbucks lover? That works too. If they’re a candle lover, and you know it, go for the candle!

2. Grown-up Loot/Surprise Bag
Create a “Bridesmaid Box” filled with small goodies and a personalized note.

3. Jewelry is a Girl’s Best Friend…
Gift them with a necklace with their first initial that they can wear on the wedding day with a sweet note.

4. Not Your Typical Girls’ Night
If you’re proposing close to the holidays, why not get your girls together for girls’ night… and surprise them with a Christmas gift that’s sure to warm their hearts and a night of pampering with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a pretty manicure!

5. Throw a Party for both sides!
If you have it in your budget to do so, throw a Bridal Party Proposal Party! A fun way for the good folks on both sides to meet each other and start building a great friendship early on. I love the idea of the floating balloons and clipping all the favourite memories with your friends and each other to them. This is of course, when you’re 99.99% sure that everyone is a “YES!”
