Take advantage of this time to celebrate with your girls!

Genius! I love these ideas, will be including a few in my proposals
I absolutely love these ideas for asking my girls! I can’t believe I didn’t think about a cosmetic bag or clutch, but that is perfect and can be reused! I think that, with some nail polish, hair ties like the above, and some other day of essentials would be perfect!
These are awesome ideas! Definitely will be using a few of these.
Love all the ideas. Will be getting my proposal ready soon.
Love these!!! ❤️
Love these ideas!!
Thank you for all these amazing ideas
Love these ideas! I have been racking my brain for what I’m going to do for the bridesmaids proposal. I’m definitely leaning towards the personalized makeup bag.
I’ve always loved the idea of a goodie Basket for a proposal. But my husband and I are a little weird, so instead of personalized champagne glasses, we want to do Ale Horns!
LOVE all of these!! I ordered custom boxes with each of my tribe’s name on them, included hair ties, a candle, a pen to take down any wedding notes, and then each gal got a special item just for them! <3
