Before wedding planning is in full swing, deciding who you want to accompany you down the aisle is the next big step. Seen as a true privilege for close friends and family to walk with their loved one on the biggest day of their life, becoming a bridesmaid is a cherished moment. You may be curious of all the ways you could ask your nearest and dearest. With so many methods, from simple to over-the-top, a bridesmaid proposal box is a wonderful way to show your appreciation for the treasured people in your life. 

A fairly new tradition, bridesmaid proposals bring a level of excitement to an otherwise arduous process. Bring some fun into the mix whilst deciding on your bridal party and craft a box unique to each loved one. 

There are a whole variety of things to fill bridesmaid proposal boxes with, and so many routes to go down. Go big and bold with personalised jewellery and tokens or simple and refined with a few treats hand-picked for them. No matter how you want to deliver the question, we have gift ideas galore to build the best box possible.

Deciding on your box

Figuring out how you want to present your chosen gifts is vital. If you have a vague idea of your budget, alongside some of the gifts you may want to include, you can pick the perfect vessel. Or, perhaps this may be the final stage to complete your bridesmaid proposal. After you’ve selected your gifts, you can find the ideal way to present them. Being the first thing your potential bridal party will see, you’ll want to make sure the exterior of your bridesmaid box is as pretty as the inside! You can achieve this in so many different ways, so don’t fret. Here are a few ideas for deciding on the perfect holder of your gifts.

1. Wooden hamper box

A meaningful keepsake, the wooden hamper box makes a great choice for those with a larger budget. If you have a smaller number of bridesmaids or just want to go all out, we have a selection of customisable wooden hamper boxes so you can personalise each one. Pop their name, a meaningful message, or even a date, on our gorgeous Wildflower Hamper Box to create a proposal box they will cherish forever.

2. Wicker hamper box

Perhaps a more affordable option, a wicker hamper box gives a rustic charm to any occasion. A great choice for achieving a gorgeous aesthetic, nestle your treats and trinkets inside a wicker hamper and present your loved ones with a seriously thoughtful bridesmaid proposal.

3. Kraft gift box

If your proposal boxes boast a smaller selection of prized pieces, a mini gift box might just suit. Super affordable and seriously cute, you can get small gift boxes from a variety of places. With custom bridesmaid options available or just a simple design, you can select what would work best for you. You could even get some plain kraft gift boxes and embark on a DIY project for an extra special touch!

Open the card to fill it with your words of affirmation for your chosen loved ones.
