When A popped the question I knew in my mind instantly who my bridesmaids would be. He took a bit longer choosing his groomsmen but we did know that we wanted to ask them properly at the engagement party. We scrolled through Pinterest over a couple of days and then finally came up with some ideas to personalise our own groomsmen and bridesmaid proposal.
Let’s start with the Groomsmen. We knew that all of A’s friends loved to go down the pub and have a drink so we thought we would theme it around that. We started by getting a bottle of ale each for them (different types) and a small bottle of whiskey each. We then found the ace of spades bottle opener and the cool shaped whiskey glass on Amazon. The cards I found from a lovely shop on Etsy which I think just go perfectly with our wedding theme! I then put all of them in a basket with some hamper packaging. The boys loved their gifts and of course, all said yes!
For my bridesmaids, I got the same style of card and then got them all a little ‘Wedding Day’ Yankee Candle which I thought was appropriate. I then also got them a small bottle of Rosé champagne, a cute pink stemmed champagne glass from Etsy and a Nails Inc nail varnish. Again I put them in baskets with hamper stuffing. My bridesmaids were shocked but loved the gift idea and all said yes!
I can’t wait to get planning the hen and stag party and spending some amazing time with the people I love and cherish the most! We are going to make some amazing memories. I would love to know if any of you guys ‘proposed’ to your entourage or whether you just asked them normally?
