Youâ€™re engaged, youâ€™ve set your wedding date, and now you need to â€śpop the question,â€ť to your posse of ladies!Â These ladies will be your glue to hold you together for your wedding!Â Whether they live near or far, here are a few creative ideas for your proposal.
Brand your style and personality of your wedding into the idea, and allow it be a moment they wonâ€™t forget.Â Think of one thing (besides you) all of your ladies have in common.Â Do they have a favorite restaurant, club, wine, ice cream, cookie, cupcake, candle, or store?Â Scheduling a time, day and location to get everyone together at the same time may be difficult too.Â Recommend asking your MOH first.Â If everyone is local, select and implement your setting and put your plan into action based on what assets your location offers (video screen, specialty desserts, customized menu cards, etc.).Â For out-of-town ladies, skype them so they are still included in the moment.Â If getting everyone together is impossible, make a video and send them the video link.
Design (or have someone design for you) a personalized card, photo frame, sign (on a chalkboard or layered/decorated card stock), cupcake, cookie, cake, or bottle of wine with, â€śI have my man, now I need my ladies.Â Please say YES since I wonâ€™t walk down the aisle without you by my side!Â Alexa, will you be my maid of honor?Â Karla, will you be my bridesmaid?â€ť
Some of your BFFs may be â€śkeepersâ€ť while others may prefer something edible or an item they may â€śuse/reuse.â€ť A few suggested items:
-If they like wine, there are rings on top of a wine stopper.
-Decorate a photo frame â€śpoppingâ€ť the question on the frame with all of you in the photo together.
-Have cookies shaped in a dress with the color of icing being your wedding colors.
-Design cupcakes with writing on the top in your wedding colors.
-Use photos from a trip, or other great moments.
-Girls weekend out â€“ incorporate â€śpopping the question.â€ť
Discuss it with your fiancĂ©, since he may want to make a proposal to his men on the same day or night â€“ you may want to all get together after to celebrate the YES!
