So, you’re in the stages of planning your wedding- congratulations! Once you’ve picked your nearest and dearest to be by your side on your big day, it’s time to ask the question, will you be my bridesmaid/maid of honour? There are a lot of different ways you can go about this. There are a few things to take into consideration when creating a “will you be my bridesmaid” gift box. We’ve compiled a list of things to include in order to create the perfect gift box!
A thoughtful, personalised gift box is a memorable way to ask someone to be involved in your special day. While some of these items will depend on the personalities of your future bridesmaids, there are some more general items that are great to include when asking the question.
Choosing the Right Gift Box
Have your bridesmaids name displayed on her own handcrafted timber personalised keepsake box. These boxes are perfect for filling up with pamper gifts and delivered in an elegant handcrafted timber box. If you’d prefer another method to store everything in, you can buy personalised tote bags for each of your bridesmaids.
Bridal Party Bracelets
Add in a monogram bridesmaid bracelet or something similar, for those that wear jewellery and will appreciate the gift. It’s a great way to add in a little sparkle and shine in the gift box. It’s also something tangible they can hold on to and treasure!
Form Your Bride Tribe
Start forming your bride tribe by adding in things like bridal party themed temporary tattoos. Add in a floral robe to give your bridesmaids something to wear on the day while getting ready- you can find personalised robes or simply ones with “Bride” and “Bridesmaid” embroidered on the back. Pop in a pair of comfy slippers or bed socks (depending on the time of year your wedding is- these are great for during winter but unless you’re in air conditioning, will make you melt during summer). Bath bombs and nail polish are also a nice inclusion to give the bridesmaids something to relax and pamper themselves with before the day- also by giving them nail polish you can choose a colour that matches their dresses for them to wear on the day.
It’s time to celebrate! Include a bottle of wine for your bridesmaids to enjoy- you can even personalise the label to make it extra special. There’s the choice of miniature wine to fit in the gift box, or full-sized wine bottles if you’re opting for the tote bag option.
This will only work if you’re giving them out on the same day- you don’t want food to be sitting in a box for too long. Add in a few colourful macarons or a cupcake for a tasty treat.
A Special Note and Photo
To make the box truly personalised, add in a special note, recounting your favourite memories with the person, and even include a printed photo of one of the memories. Tell them why you appreciate their presence and how they have impacted your life for the better, or why you want them by your side on your big day! It’s a heart-warming inclusion to a bridesmaid gift box.
