15 Ways to Ask Your Bridesmaids to Attend Your Wedding

How to Ask Your Friend to be Your Bridesmaid


1. Create a bespoke bridesmaid proposal box

We think proposal boxes (like this one from ModParty)  are one of the best gift ideas for asking bridesmaids to be a part of your wedding. Why? No one knows your friends like you do. You can fill each bridesmaid proposal box with small personalized gifts that reflect each ‘maid’s tastes, interests, and moments you’ve shared together.

2. Send your bridesmaids keepsake puzzles

When you’re asking bridesmaids, gifts matter as they will serve as a reminder of this special moment in your friendship. Ideally, you want to choose a gift that will in itself provide a memorable experience. We think these keepsake puzzles by Wistfully Modern are the perfect pick. Not only will your bridesmaids have a lot of fun figuring out their individual puzzles, these gorgeous pieces can be framed after completion.
