We are officially one year away from our wedding, and the countdown is on! A couple of week’s ago, we celebrated our engagement party at the lake. We invited all of our closest friends that we wanted to be in the wedding party. I couldn’t wait to ask my besties to be my bridesmaids! I am so blessed to have such amazing girlfriends, and I wanted to spoil them with some fun goodies. Here’s how I created the Most Fabulous Bridesmaid Proposal Gift for my girls!

I wanted to make sure I included unique gifts that I love, and I knew my girls would love, too! Of course, there had to be champagne because it’s the perfect time for popping some bubbly. I picked up a four pack of mini Barefoot Pink Moscato Champagne. Bath bombs are also my latest obsession right now, and the Museé bath bombs are my absolute favorite! They are a lot bigger than your typical bath bomb, they smell AMAZING, and they have a little surprise inside. I purchased mine at Sweet Pineapple here in Huntsville, but you can buy them in their online shop, too! My favorite scent is Tiny Dancer. You can’t forget to add some chocolate, I also made sure there was a Hershey bar in each box so I could wrap it with a custom label (more on that later!). I also included some Sugarfina Baby Champagne Bears because they are so yummy, and the packaging is so perfect. I wanted this to feel super glam and girly. I also got some Burt’s Bees lip balm to add in, because every girl can use some!
How to Assemble:
I knew wanted a white box that would be the perfect size to fit all the goodies. I ended up finding white photo boxes on sale at Michael’s, and not only were they sturdy with a smooth finish, but they were the perfect size for all the surprises! I also wanted hot pink shredded paper to fill the bottom of the box to lift everything up, and make everything look really festive.To personalize the box so that all the items felt like a set and they matched, I created wraps for the champagne bottle, the bath bomb, and the candy bar with cute little sayings on it that tied in with the item being wrapped. “You’re the Sweetest! Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” was on on the candy bar. The bath bombs says, “You’re the Bomb!” and the lip balm says, “MWAH!”
Before I created the labels, I had to measure out the dimensions for each label with a measuring tape from a sewing kit, so I could get the most accurate measurements. Then, I set up the labels to print on 11×17 inch paper, and had them printed with my favorite local print shop. I cut them out, and glued them on with Mod Podge.
Once I got all the goodies labels glued on, I arranged them in the box, put the lid on, and added a bow with ribbon from Michael’s. Then, I finished it off with a gift tag I found in a set at TJ Maxx that says, “Bridesmaid.”
This is how I created the Most Fabulous Bridesmaid Proposal Gifts for my bridesmaids. They absolutely loved, them and I couldn’t be happier with how they tuned out! I hope this gives you brides a little inspiration for something you could do for your bridesmaids when you ask them to stand next to you on your big day. They will totally love whatever you get them, because they’re your besties and they will just be thrilled that you want them to be apart of your wedding.
