YOU'RE ENGAGED! Your ever-so-amazing partner just popped the big question and undoubtedly you said "YES!". Now it's time for you to rally your tribe together and ask one more important proposal: Your Bridesmaid Proposal!
Need some inspiration? Get ready to pop the question to the VIP's in your life with these creative and fun bridesmaid proposal ideas.
1. Throw a Girls Night
We all love our 'Girls Only' nights so one of our favourite proposal ideas is gathering your VIP's together for a girls night of fun whilst wine tasting or drinks and celebrations at your home or your favourite bar. They won't suspect a thing! Then wait until the time is right to present the final ready-to-drink selection: a delicious selection catered uniquely to their drink of choice with a custom label that playfully asks them to be in your wedding party. Package your goodies with a Lala Confetti selection of beautiful presentation boxes and needless to say, you'll be toasting yourselves for the rest of the night.
2. Bling Out Your Besties
Gather your girls and stage a bridesmaids high tea, with scones, strawberry spread and cream, cucumber sandwiches, fruit platters, sweets, coffee, tea and why not, champaign! Show your tribe just how much they mean to you - and how much it would mean to have them stand beside you when you say "I do" by gifting them with a little personalised piece of jewellery. Use this as a chance to gift them with their wedding jewellery or simply a nice keepsake. Visit ElliesPaperie for some awesome inspiration!
3. Set up a Coffee Date
Do you find it difficult to get the squad together all at once? Don't fret! Organise a special coffee date, one on one, at your favourite coffee house. Bring along a personalised mug wrapped in a beautiful gift box of goodies. Even ask if the barista can do a little latte art in the coffee. Just make sure your girl reads it before she drains her cup! HappilyEverEtchedInc have cute customisable gift ideas to choose from.
4. Pack a Gift Box
Give a box full of personalised goodies to your bridesmaids. Not quite sure what to include? Why not personalise to each of your girls with something sentimental to your friendship. Let them know how much they mean to you and explain why they are so deserving to stand next to you on your wedding day. ModParty have great inspiration ideas: Include a personalised glass, nail polish, scented candle, matches, masks, lip balm and other sweet treats along with a handwritten personalised message from you should do the trick. Who can say no to that?

6. Sign Up for a Floral Workshop
Love flowers? Its easy to say weddings and flowers go hand-in-hand, so consider getting creative with your girls and take them out to a floral workshop and proposing to your bridal party over some amazing smelling blooms. Bring your VIPs to a floral workshop at your local floristry. Unveiling Poppy for our Brisbane ladies is the place to go! Arrange a private event and stock each station with your friends' favorite flowers and attach a personalised note directed to each person asking them to be your bridesmaid. Once the workshop is finished, reminisce and take the girls to coffee/lunch to celebrate!
7. Personalised Duffle Bags
How cute and amazing are these! Personalise duffle bags for your girls with their initials. Customise to your bridal colours and add all your bridesmaid essentials inside.

8. Say It With Sweets
Give something sweet to go with all the sweet things you have to say about your bestie. Want to go for something classic? Try a cookie trio that says it all and be sure to customise to your wedding colors! Another cute way is to give her a block of chocolate with a little bit of fun on the front. Customise the cover and include a scratchy that asks the ever - so -important question, "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?". We're drooling at the site of these sweet and fancy proposal cookies - there is no way your friends can refuse this sweet proposal!

Bridesmaids are a great support for the bride from all wedding planning needs, to the try on's, hair appointments to the bachelorette party and believe it or not - it can get quite stressful! So why not pamper your VIP's with sentimental gifts that will help them stay stress-free and relaxed through the entire process.
