There’s nothing more that screams celebration than balloons and confetti falling in the air. Keep a secret message inside of helium balloons filled with confetti and provide a safety pin to your bridesmaids to be.

5. Fill A Gift Box With All Their Favourite Things
Filling a gift box with personal and cute items can be a great way for asking your friend to be your bridesmaid. You can add photos of memories you have shared together with that person and write a personal note to them of how much they mean to you. Fill up the box with small things like their favourite snacks or chocolates and beauty brands. Sometimes it’s best to keep it cute and personal. This is perfect for delivering the question to a person who is overseas, living quite a distance away from you.
6. Say It With A T-shirt

7. Present A Picture Frame
A cute photo frame that shows a picture of you and your bridesmaid with a small caption, ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ is another special way of delivering the question. The bridesmaid to be can then place it in their home and be reminded of the big day to come.

8. Make it Personalised
Giving a simple gift to your bridesmaid, but having it personalised makes it even more special. Candles are a great way of asking the question. Who doesn’t love a beautiful smelling candle? You can even have the question engraved into a mason jar, with their name on the back, so that they can remember the moment when you ask them.
