Have you heard of a bridesmaids proposal? If you’re currently perplexed and scratching your head, you’re not alone. I didn’t know this tradition existed until I started wedding planning. It was so hard picking my bridesmaids but after sitting down with T to go over our wedding party, we settled on having eight bridesmaids and groomsmen, including the best man and maid of honor. I put some thought into how I was going to propose to my girls and finally found the perfect bridesmaids proposal box at David’s Bridal.
I wanted my bridesmaids proposal box to be fun and themed. Since we’re getting married in France in the Poitou-Charentes region, I decided on something reminiscent of a beautiful French vineyard. I chose this gorgeous personalized wooden box as a keepsake for each bridesmaid. The bridesmaids proposal box comes with a vegan leather card case and a personalized stemless champagne flute.
I wanted to add some personal touches so I included three of my favorite accessories – a knotted vegan leather headband and matching XL scrunchie and pearl clips from Bellefixe – because all my girls love hair accessories and and so do I. I also included a small bottle of Le Grand Courtage sparkling wine so that we could all celebrate via Zoom with a glass of bubbly in their personalized champagne flutes.
Of course, the proposal wouldn’t be complete without a personalized note. I have really awful handwriting but I still wanted to include a note. I asked Brianna of Swatch Hub – she makes the chicest masks and also does custom embroidery – to embroider a lovely note on cocktail napkins for each bridesmaid. The end result was a bridemaids proposal box that is custom and sentimental.
You can also build your custom boxes at David’s Bridal boutiques nationwide by making an appointment. The have all the fun accessories and boxes you’ll need to build your bridesmaids proposal box. I had so much fun creating mine. The only difficult part was choosing from so many cute items from the David’s Bridal website to include.
P.S. The dress I’m wearing is also from David’s Bridal and looks so good on all body types. The quality is sublime and the fit is perfect. It comes in sizes 0 – 30 and is made by Oleg Cassini.
