From Squad Goals to Bride Tribe: Bridesmaid Proposal Gifts
Forget neon signs, hessian table runners, and pimp your prosecco, one of the biggest (and growing) trends to have hit the UK wedding industry in recent years doesn’t even happen at the wedding!
Over the years, ‘Bridesmaid Proposals’ have quickly grown in popularity, with 1 in 4 brides choosing to promote their besties to bridesmaids with a proposal. And it’s easy to understand why, after all these are the girls who will be scouring through Pinterest boards with you, supplying you with tissues at the altar, and holding your dress while you pee! Here at Giftpup, we have compiled a list of our favourite Bridesmaid Proposal Gifts to help you find the perfect way to pop the question.
What better item for a bridesmaid to hold in her arsenal than a mini mirror? This mirror card is a small yet meaningful way to ask your girls to join you at the altar. The personalised mirror asks the vital question, and the attached card gives you plenty of space to pour your heart out. The 'Be My Bridesmaid' Mirror is a gift that your bridesmaids can keep for a lifetime - and it will come in handy for fixing any tear soaked makeup on the day!
From hen party planning, to last minute touch ups, there is a lot of responsibility that comes with the role of Bridesmaid. This Bridesmaid Tote Bag is made of 100% natural cotton and makes a perfect re-usable bag for shopping, going to the gym, or just as a memorable keepsake. This tote is not only a great way to show your friends you care, but it is also a practical solution for carrying the hen supplies, and for collecting samples at wedding fairs!
This cute Lapel Pin is bang on trend with the rise of the pin. From helping to identify the squad at wedding fairs, to unifying everyone on a night out, this small yet mighty wedding role pin is an understated yet brilliant way to form your bride tribe. Whether it's a pin for your bridesmaids, your maid of honour, of even just for you, a lapel pin is the perfect accessory, and could even be incorporated into the wedding day!
This bright bling flask is a great way to get the celebrations started early! The pink diamante crystals cover the entire flask, save for the engraving panel, and it can hold up to 6oz of your bridesmaid's favourite tipple. The panel is a perfect place to engrave your proposal into the flask, making it a great keepsake as well as a cool gift! This Pink Diamante Engraved Flask is sure to make an appearance at the hen party, and who knows, it may even make for a fun wedding picture.
For the squad that prefers a Netflix binge to a night on the town, something a little bit more homely might be the perfect proposal gift. The Bridesmaids Candle offers a soft vanilla scented candle in a personalised glass candle holder. Each candle is also presented in its own customisable gift box - the perfect place to write your proposal. When the candles been burnt, and the home is filled with the subtle scent of vanilla, the gorgeous votive and box will remain ready for re-purposing.
If you're looking for something a little less long-lasting, why not treat your tribe to some gorgeous edible proposals. These delicious vanilla biscuits are hand painted and include decorative gold leaf for an added wow factor. Edible proposals are the perfect mix of sugar and sentiment, for a guaranteed proposal acceptance. Each gift set comes with either 5 or 10 biscuits, all of which are packed inside a luxury (and fully recyclable) gift box.
This gorgeous Pink Friendship Bracelet is the perfect way to treat your girls either before the wedding, on the wedding day, or as a thank you gift after the wedding. We personally think that these would be a great way to propose to your bridesmaids, with their name engraved onto the adorable heart charm, and a loving note or card alongside it. Each bracelet comes presented in a luxury giftbox with a silk bow, for the perfect added touch.
Much like with biscuits, sugar is bound to go a long way when you're hoping for that 'yes'. Whether that chocolate is in the form of one of our Custom Chocolate Bars, or something a little more decadent like our Personalised Sweet Trees. Our Sweet Trees are available with a range of sweet treats, and space for a small message, whilst our Bridesmaid Chocolate Bar is made of milk chocolate and can be personalised with you Bridesmaid's names.
Here at Giftpup, we offer a wide range of personalised alcohol gifts, from whisky to wine and everything in between. Our favourite choices for a bridesmaid proposal are our customised prosecco bottles, such as this Pink Bridesmaid Prosecco. Prosecco has been growing in popularity over the years, and a personalised bottle is a great way to kick the celebrations off in style. For a trendy tipple with a bit less fizz, we also offer Personalised Gin Gifts.
Their Own Personalised Bridesmaid Box
For the ultimate bridesmaids gift, why not make each bridesmaid their own personal proposal box. These Personalised Wooden Boxes are a great opportunity to surprise your bridesmaid with a special selection of gifts just for them. A personalised box could make a great gift either as a Bridesmaid Proposal, or as a gift after the wedding, filled with mementos and photos from the big day. The beauty of this gift is that it can be anything you want it to be!
