You’re getting married, you’ve chosen a few of your very best gal pals that you want by your side and to be your support system for your big day but how do you go about asking them? Don’t be boring, here are some creative ways to ask your friends to be your bridesmaid.
“Tie the Knot” with Your Bridesmaid
We all LOVE Essie, but did you know there is a nail polish called “tie the knot“? This would be perfect to give to your soon-to-be-bridesmaid with a cute card asking her to be yours.
Do it Yourself Bridesmaid Box
Make a Bridesmaid-to-be box is a simple, but very creative way to ask your friend to be a major part of your wedding. Inside of the box you can include each bridesmaid’s roles for the day, what you need help with, what you expect, and any other relevant information. I guarantee your friends have never been asked this way.
Pop the Question
The man of your dreams popped the big question to you, now it’s turn for your to “pop the question” to your girlfriends. All you need to pop the question to your friends is a box (can be found at Hobby Lobby), a simple knot ring, tissue paper and a permanent marker to write on the inside of the box. The Knot ring is only $23 and can be worn on your wedding day! Your killing two birds with one stone, asking her to be your bridesmaid AND buying jewelry for the big day.

“Will you be my BRIDESMAID? Will you hold my hand on my wedding day? Will you be my best friend, my sister, and my free counselor? Will you help me pick out the perfect dress? WIll you dance the night away with me? Will you stop me from registering for appliances we know I’ll never use, and bite your tongue when I register for china you know I’ll never use? Will you wear your hair the way I want? Will you be on your best behavior at my shower, smile endlessly for pictures, compliment our food, and make sure “you-know-who” doesn’t hit on the DJ? Lastly, will you hold my dress up when I pee?” This personalized letter can be changed to your liking and it definitely sums up what being a bridesmaid is all about.

I still need my girls
This would be ideal to ask your friend to be part of your wedding that doesn’t live close to you. Wouldn’t this be an awesome surprise to get in the mail? It’s a great reminder that you may getting married but your best girl friends are still needed in your life. (Bridesmaid Printable – I Found a Man but I still need my girls)
For the Boozy Bridesmaid
Grab either your favorite alcoholic beverage or your future bridesmaid’s favorite alcoholic beverage and attach a note that says, “As I prepare for the day that I’m to be a bride, it would mean the world to have you sipping by my side. Will you be my bridesmaid?” I love this idea. What goes better than booze and your best friends? That’s right, nothing.
