In my opinion, something that makes your wedding so special is the people you’re sharing the moment with, and I’m not talking about those invited attendees I’m talking about the ladies in your bridal party! Those girls who you know will be there to relieve some stress, have a little fun and of course hold your dress while you use the bathroom. Of course when asking those ladies to be a part of not only your special day but also your special year (planning) it should certainly be done with love and with some fun! When I went on to choose my bridal party it was honestly a no brainer- I have the best friends and they all would serve a perfect part in my big day. So I feel pretty accomplished because finally put together and sent out my bridesmaid proposal boxes! I’m so happy I finally talk about it because the boxes should’ve been delivered today! Ladies this was such a hassle because I wanted to do something cute but I didn’t want to do the typically mini bottle of champagne and nail polish. I wanted it to be different, memorable and totally me so what I decided to do was all 3! With more than half my girls living in different cities (and states) than me I knew I would need something that would transfer well.
Anyone who knows me knows I’m such a fan all things smell good, from perfume, to candles and room and linen sprays. Now I certainly wasn’t going to buy the ladies a perfume ( with allergies this could be terrible) so I decided to put together the perfect room smell good kit! The Bridesmaid Proposal boxes are filled with gold, black and white stuffing ( my wedding colors), the ceramic plug in which is in its box and bubble wrapped (each girl got a different one) the melting wax in different scents and a bottle of room spray! If you haven’t heard of Scentsy then I urge you to do a little research! Scentsy is a brand that makes not only rooms prays but plug in candles and scented wax, and the best part about the plug in is it’s not a real flame, it’s a light bulb that melts the wax! Super cute and each girl got a different design and a different scent! I wanted something to be super personalized for each girl so I decided that I would get personalized cards made with each girls name and our wedding hashtag #foreveruknighted in gold foil because nothing says “Danielle” more than gold foil and stationary! Each girl’s card has a poem as well as the big question! Will You Be My Bridesmaid, Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor? I like the idea of that personal touch and something that the girls can keep forever should they have a card box like my sister!
I went back and forth with ordering cute boxes for the packages but in the end ladies it’s going to be packaged inside of a USPS or FedEx box and I thought I want them to open the package and immediately be hit with the stuffing so I decided to package them right in the USPS packages with the personalized cards right on top! I completely understand the want for that cutesy stuff but you’re planning and possibly paying for a wedding, your friends won’t be mad at the packaging! And if they are they probably shouldn’t be in your bridal party (just saying!) Anywhoo I’m so excited for the girl’s to all get their boxes today and I’ll be back to update you on the reactions ( I know they’ll love them)!
