As I’ve shared previously, I got engaged this summer and now I’m in full planning mode. One of the first things I did? Bridesmaid proposals, since I had to assemble my bride squad. It was a bit stressful, so I figured I’d impart some advice of my own!
Who Will Be In Your Wedding Party?
This is the first question you should ask yourself who do you want by your side on your big day? You may have family traditions, friends you’ve always imagined, or have absolutely no clue. I recommend thinking about these two important questions:
1. What do you expect from your Bridesmaids?
Do you need them to do full-on tasks? Keep you calm the morning of? Just look good in the pictures for memories? Keeping this in mind for when it’s time to build and narrow down your list!
2. How many people do you want?
Do you want it to be small? What’s your partner’s wedding party list looking like? Do you want even numbers or does it not truly matter to you?
You should know this when you go into this, there’s no need to add people if you only want five bridesmaids/men if you don’t want to. It’s your day and it should be the way you want it to be. Your other friends and family should understand and respect that.
Keep it Simple
I chose these cute chocolate bar proposal because I didn’t want to do a full-on proposal box but I still wanted to do something cute for my friends who I was able to ask in person. I also chose this because I knew several of my bridesmaids would be asked via phone and I didn’t want the disparity to be quite so vast.
Have you ever thought about your wedding party? Any traditions or people you know you have to include? Let me know in the comments!
