what have you done to ask your bridesmaids to be your bridesmaid? I would like to do/make something to give them when I ask them, especially as it's two years away but I don't know what. The age range is 12-32 so probably wouldn't be a 'one size fits all' kind of gift,ore tailored to each one Thanks xx

I made little gift bags with a bridesmaids DVD, a face mask, wedding day scented candle and a bracelet with a poem asking them. Wanted it personal without spending too much. Each bag cost less than £12 xx

I didn't do anything special, as I'm saving that for the gifts on the day. I knew who I wanted and I think they knew I'd ask them, and didn't expect anything special but it's your choice 😊😊 xx

I decorated little boxes, made little notes from coloured card and miniature bouquets of flowers with a note saying: "will you be my bridesmaid?" "yes or no" check boxes, my sisters loved it and although I didn't need to i also have one to my maid of honour so she had a keepsake too lol

I got some little boxes and painted them in our colours and put “will you be my bridesmaid?” Inside the lid and in there was an adjustable thread bracelet with a charm that says “bridesmaid” on it. Also did the same for my maid of honour. It was lovely and they loved them xx

I made a collage of pics of me with each one and put the ask on there as well, then had them framed. Went over really well with my bridesmaids and witness (all 27/28) and flower girls (8 and 10).

I ordered the boomf bombs and had them personalised! I made sure they all had someone to film their reactions though as something to remember the moment and they were brilliant! The girls loved them!

I did a photo book for 3 of them with a poem I wrote running throughout it, the last lines asking them to be my bridesmaids. My other one I don't have many photos with so went on etsy and bought a wooden heart ornament with says (name) will you be my bridesmaid. I wrote a letter to go with that- they all were shocked and emotional xxx

I asked mine using a balloon “Pop” box!

My bridesmaid popped the balloon which released confetti and a scroll reading- will you be my bridesmaid?

She loved it!

My bridesmaids and I went for afternoon tea at our wedding reception venue and I gave them their boxes there. Unfortunately their glasses hadn’t turned up in time. So I did this instead. X
