There are lots of different things you can do for them and gifts for bridesmaids that you can give them so that they feel flattered and it's nearly impossible to say no. knows a few unique ways for you to ask that very important question... "Will you be my bridesmaid?" 

Raise A Glass
Our online wedding accessory store has some adorable wine bags that will ask the question for you, and then you've already got a bottle of wine or champagne to toast with when they say yes. Add a fancy wine glass to the gift that can serve as an official "wedding planning wine glass" when you all get together to brainstorm wonderful wedding ideas together.  

Say Something Sweet
Rather than drinks, butter them up with something to eat instead. Have a special cake made with the surprise question on top, or have individual cupcakes made that you can deliver to each of them. You could even get down on one knee and present them with a box containing a shiny Ring Pop. 

Sway Them With Swag
Your future bridesmaids will be excited to say yes right away when you present them with a box full of fun stuff that they can proudly use, display, and wear to let the world know that they are your bridesmaid. A cute coffee mug stating their new title, matching sunglasses, a picture frame with a photo of the two of you in it, and things like that work perfectly. It will officially make them a part of "Team Bride." 

Pack Them A Kit
You might want to give them a bag full of more practical items that will come in handy for playing the role of bridesmaid. A wedding day survival kit will offer them some of the special things that they will need to uphold this honored position. Make sure to package it in a cute bag that they will want to keep using long after the wedding is over. 

Plan A Girls' Day Out
