The Bridesmaid Proposal

Happy Monday, all of my beautiful brides!

I get a lot of questions on how to propose to a bridesmaid and while it isn’t something that is 100% necessary, I think that it makes the whole planning experience more fun for everyone involved. Let’s be real, most of your bridesmaids probably already know if they are going to be in your wedding party before the proposal even happens, just because you are the best of friends. But asking each of your girls in a special way is that much more meaningful, and shows how much you truly care about her and NEED her standing right by your side as you say your “I Do’s.”

For those of you asking 6, 7, 8 or even more bridesmaids, I know that this can get a little pricey but there are tons of ideas that are very price-effective. I promise, we can figure out something that will work with your budget, even if it is very simple. And in many cases, simple is better!

So today, I wanted to showcase one of the cutest bridesmaid proposal ideas I recently found. Although I loved my proposal to my bridesmaids (photo on the right), I wish I had known about this company before because I would have LOVED to propose in this way!

And without further ado, here is the most adorable bridesmaid proposal idea from Blue Penguin Shop!


The Ingredients

-          These adorable proposal mirrors from Blue Penguin Shop
-          A small box for each bridesmaid (I would recommend looking at Dollar Tree!)
-          A mini bottle of champagne
-          A mini jar of M&M’s or her favorite candy...or how cute would the personalized M&M’s be??
-          And some confetti to dress it up (in your wedding colors, of course!)


Take a closer look...

While this is just one example of an inexpensive proposal idea, there are so many options to put in your little gift basket.

But take a closer look at these adorable mirrors! Not only are they super cute for the proposal, but can be used as a keepsake and a useful compact mirror to keep in her purse! And every time she takes a look in her mirror, she will remember the amazing friendship the two of you have :)
