Unique Ways to “Pop the Question” to Your Bridal PartyJune 12, 2017 by The Marquardt Ranch
You’ve said yes to your fiancé, but the proposals still aren’t quite over. Now it’s time to find your bridal party! Whether you’re searching for bridesmaids or groomsmen, we’ve collected ten unique ways to ‘pop the question’ to the ones who will stand by your side on your big day.
I ‘Mustache’ You a Question
A cute pun makes for a memorable bridal party proposal. Put it on a koozie or a card, or anything you feel like!
This idea works well for either gender. Whether your girls or guys like wine or whiskey, many places will customize labels for you, letting your bridal party remember the day you asked them to be a part of your wedding every time they take a sip.
Over an Event
Whether it’s getting manis and pedis at the spa, a wine trail, a beer tasting, or attending a sporting event, this option is great if you want to spend quality time with your friends before asking the question.
Another cute and quirky idea is to give them individualized socks! You can order a fun or funky pair that reflects each person’s interests, tastes, or personality.
This one’s for the ladies—a bag printed with the phrase, “I can’t say I do without you”, or monogrammed with their initials makes for a practical and cute way to pop the question.
For the gents, a leather shaving bag with their initials is a classy way to ask them to be a groomsman or best man. A handwritten note inside the bag pops the question, and they can use your gift for years to come.
What could be more unique than a vintage handkerchief? For bridesmaids, consider a floral pattern embroidered with a phrase of your choice. This idea works for the groomsmen, too—use more masculine shades or patterns, and then they can use it as a pocket square at the wedding!
Don’t worry, we don’t mean the lottery kind! If your friend or family member lives across the country, sending them a card with a scratch-to-reveal message is a great option.
Bridesmaid (or Groomsman) Box
Put together a box of memories for your bridal party members that reflects on special moments you’ve had together. This personal touch will mean the world to them!
“Will You Be My” Crossword
These clever crosswords add a bit of creative fun to asking your bridal party to help you say ‘I do’. Host a game night and pull out these puzzles partway through, or mail them to folks in faraway states.
