Bride Tribe, Squad, Bridal Party, whatever you may call your bridesmaids, they are a very important part of your wedding day preparation and celebration.
“ Maybe you’ll find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding. But there’s also the chance that the person you can count on for a lifetime, the person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself, is the same person who’s been standing beside you all along. “ Marion St Claire, The Wedding Planner in Bride Wars. Well we couldn’t agree more with that.

Tips & Advice for the Perfect Bridesmaid Proposal

1. Write a personal note to each one and tell them why they are special to you and why you want them to be part of your squad.

2. If you are going to spend money on them make it worth it and get something they can use long after your wedding. TO BE GIFT BOXES has been carefully curated with much loved products which can all be used after the wedding and on the day, to create a beautiful and unified look for the getting ready photos. With items like the perfume, gown, slippers and cosmetic bag, these are perfect for the preparation pics.

3. Make each bridesmaid feel special. Take time to meet with each one separately to give them the bridesmaids proposal box. #MagicMoments

4. Another idea is to add the element of surprise. Get the bridesmaid box delivered to their office or make them do a treasure hunt to find their “prize.”

The most important thing is to have fun with it and let your bridesmaids know how important they are to you!
