Bridesmaid Proposals: What are They, How to Pop the Question and What to Buy

What is a Bridesmaid Proposal?

A bridesmaid proposal is the moment you ask your best girls, sister, cousins or whoever you’ve carefully hand-selected, to be your bridesmaids on your big day.

This can be as creative or as off-the-cuff as you like, but for many brides-to-be choosing bridesmaids is an emotional and exciting occasion and getting the delivery just right is essential.
