After I got engaged and was thinking of which girls I wanted to surround me on my wedding day, I immediately knew which ladies I wanted to ask to be my bridesmaids. I also knew I wanted to do something sweet and special to pop the question. I decided to put a box together of some of my favorite things (hello, champs and macarons!) and wrap it with elegant, feminine gift wrap.
The personalized bridesmaid cards were the icing on the cake to these sweet gifts (Etsy, you are amazing). I popped the question at our engagement party and the girls were happily surprised. One of my bridesmaids lives abroad in Europe, and since I couldn’t hand deliver the gift box, to ask her I sent her a card and a monogramed necklace.
This bridesmaid box is really a blank canvas for all brides to be creative. Theres so many gift options and fun ways to personalize the box, such as adding a theme like “pamper yourself” or color coordinating the box with your wedding color palette. The options are endless!
