My Bridesmaid Proposal Box!

Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes

Ok so some people may say I’ve gone a little overboard on how to ask my bridesmaids if they will be my bridesmaids! To be honest though, if the owner of The Party Postman can’t go all out, then I don’t know who can!
It took a long time to decide who I was going to choose to be in my ‘Bride Tribe’ but I eventually narrowed it down to 4 special ladies in my life! I haven’t actually spoken to any of them about being my bridesmaid before, so I really hope this whole thing will be a real surprise for them.
I knew I wanted to do something fun and surprising so I decided to go a proposal box. Now before I went about choosing the products and making anything, I decided to do some research to give myself some creative ideas on what I wanted to put into my Bridesmaid proposal box.
My wedding colours are light blue and gold so I wanted to focus the box around these colours to give it a nice consistent feel! That’s really handy because a lot of the products we sell in store match these colours so I started doing through and thinking about what I would like in the box. Some of the stuff was super obvious but others I actually created for this box specifically but now offer in store.

Check out all the items I put in below:
  • Why Limit Happy to an Hour – Stemless Wine Glass
  • Best Ideas Ever! Notebook

Once I got all of this together, I wanted to make sure that I kept the theme going so bought all of these supplies to really add to the decoration!

You can buy these boxes from us here which will come out flat shipped to you. We have them completely blank so you can design them for how you’d like or you can get them with our personalization with the ‘will you be my bridesmaid’ on the inside with the name on the top.
I know all this planning and creating makes me look like a bridezilla so my next point might sound a little silly but I wanted to make sure that my bridesmaids know what they are in for. I’ve been part of some weddings where you’re expected to talk about the thing for the rest of your life! Literally, like and text every other day a year before! I knew I didn’t want to be that kind of bride so I just wanted to let them know exactly what I expected (which really isn’t much!). Therefore, I created this little pack.

I know what you’re thinking…. I’m obsessive. I guess I am slightly but I really wanted to make this look like a nice little gift and a sort of invite. I designed the invites myself and you can see below what I put on each card. 
Bridesmaid Proposal Team Sheets
The first card was just a pretty proposal sheet that said 'Pretty Please Say You'll Be My Bridesmaid' and then the next cards were just:
- A note from the bride
- The venue and information for the day
- Bridesmaid Team Sheet
- Dress Choices
So then I put it all together and ended up with this!

What do you guys think? Would you say yes?! I hope so!
I finally did the finishing touches to the whole thing,  wrapping! Now if you know me, you know I love a good wrapping session (of gifts only!). My favourite thing is to give a gift and see a big smile on their face after they have seen how much time I spent on it.

I originally used tape to stick down the gold glitter paper but it turns out the paper has so much glitter that it means the tape doesn’t stick very well. I only realized this after I put the bow and the wrap! Therefore, I had to get some hot glue and start gluing it down which seemed to work a treat!
I love having them all together! I just think it looks so cute!

Now I know everyone loves a really pretty and effective Pull Bow. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a pull bow in the light blue colour I wanted. Therefore…. I made one! I was so proud of myself on this, that I actually created a whole blog post about how to make home made pull bows. That way you can ensure your present will be in the exact colour you want!
