Asking “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” to your favorite girls is such a fun time in the wedding planning process. And these new Bridesmaids Proposal Boxes are such a fun new trend. Now that you’ve got your celebration on, with your own Bridal Box Subscription, and you’re getting use to your new bride status…it’s time for, what I believe to be, one of the most exciting parts of your wedding planning process…asking your bridesmaids to stand up with you as you say “I do”. Your bridesmaids are the girls in your life who are there for you during the crazy wedding planning phase. “Back in the day”, brides simply asked their girls to be bridesmaids, but now…there’s a fun trend to ask with a fun gift…also known as a “bridesmaid proposal.” I personally love this trend, as I get to give my girls a special gift while I ask them to stand up with me as I marry my best friend.
I was blessed with four sisters, and have always known they would be my bridesmaids. So I was beyond excited to ask them with these awesome Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes!

If you’re having a destination wedding, you’ve gotta check out their Piña Colada Box. I loved it so much, that I got them for my bridesmaids, even though I’m probably not doing a destination wedding. But everything in it is perfect for a bachelorette party too! It comes with all the perfect things for a bachelorette getaway. Lip balm, sunnies, hair ties, new luggage tags, a special drink koozie, and a compact mirror, a pineapple bottle opener, and a label to put on a bottle of rum! They are the cutest “tropical boxes” and even come with personalized cards asking to be your bridesmaid/maid of honor.
You can send the box directly to your girls in the mail, and a shot glass will be added…or give them to your girls in person and then you can add an airplane sized bottle of rum to the box, with the cute label…perfect for piña coladas!
Each koozie was perfect for each bridesmaid, and the luggage tags and compact mirrors are personalized with their names or initials as well. All the perfect touches! You can see all the info on these boxes here.
