How To Ask Your Bridal Party
Sip Sip Hooray! The best way to celebrate any occasion is with a bottle of bubbly! Ask your ladies to stand by your side with personalized champagne bottles. Be sure to have your wedding hashtag hammered down in advance because these gifts will certainly make for some fun Instagram photos.
Bring on the bling. Ask your besties to be a part of your big day with some beautiful bling. Bonus points if the piece of jewelry is something you would like them to wear at your wedding. You can pick something unique for each girl or choose something that works for everyone.
I love you a latte! If you and your ladies always love meeting up for a latte, send them a coffee inspired gift box. A personalized, reusable cup is a great gift that will get plenty of use day to day. Your bridesmaids can also bring these the morning of the wedding while everyone gets ready together. Whether it contains coffee or perhaps a wedding morning mimosa, these cups will make the cutest picture of you and your ladies getting dressed.
Girls Day. If all of your gals are local, invite everyone to an afternoon brunch or a girl’s day at the spa. Relax, unwind and pop the question over a champagne toast.
Tying the Knot! If you are looking for a small, but special way to ask your lovely ladies, these are it! Who doesn’t love a great hair tie and these personalized versions are just so cute and useful!
Send snailmail. In our world of technology, it’s always nice to get an actual card in the mail. Send your girls a handwritten card asking them to join in your special day. You can even make them work for it and send a scratch off card.
Tis the season! Everyone loves getting a new ornament to display on their tree or in their home. A personalized ornament will ensure your besties will remember your day year after year!
Suit up with a cigar. Remember it’s not just the ladies who are asked to be part of the wedding fun. Request your favorite fellas to suit up with a specially made cigar.
Little ladies! We certainly cannot leave out the littlest bridal party members. Ask your flower girl with a custom wooden puzzle. Not only will they be excited to get such a special gift, it’s a great idea to bring this along on the wedding day for them to play with. Remember, weddings can be a long day for the little ones.
Ring security. You will certainly need someone to secure your rings. If you have a little man in mind, this security badge will be the perfect way to ask him to be a part of your day. He could even “secretly” wear the badge on his suspenders under his jacket during your wedding. Think of how much fun he will having showing it off to everyone!
