Wedding Trends: Bridesmaids Proposals

Let’s face it. Proposals of any kind mean more to women than they do to men.

That’s why when you are asking a question as important as this, why wouldn’t you spend a little extra time in making it special and memorable.

After all, there are few times in your life when you can shine a spotlight on the female friends who’ve had your back through thick and thin and ups and downs.

Being a bridesmaid and especially a Maid of Honor takes a lot of extra work, time and money. And often people don’t really realize how much work it takes and it can often go unappreciated.

That’s why a bride should show her appreciation for her friendship from the very start and do it through a bridesmaid proposal.

A few ways to do it are:

1. Send a card:

2. Send your friends on a brief scavenger hunt. Involve champagne, food and fun!

3. Make a sweet treat!

4. Send her a special “Care” package

5. Send a decadent dessert..

6. Prepare them for their big “I Do”

7. “Pop” the question, then pop the champagne!

8. Send an edible bouquet

9. Make it public

Buy advertising space at a local movie theater. Invite your girlfriends to the movies with you and show up early enough to be sitting in the theater with all your popcorn and drinks already. Have the theater show your words onscreen before the movie starts.

10. Have you seen Facebook Timeline?

Create something like this, only about your timeline as friends, complete with pictures of you and your friend, places you’ve been, funny stories or memories and even interviews of people who know you and your friend (2), end the short video with “Will you be my bridesmaid?”
