This list is so awesome! It has lots of different ideas that I haven’t seen on Pinterest/done by others yet. I can’t wait to use one to ask my girls!! I like the clothespin dolls a lot for some reason, they are so cute. The necklaces and scratch off cards too! Such great ideas!

My favorite one is Gold locket as it is very adorable. I bought robes for my bridesmaids on my wedding and personalized them with initials on the front. They really liked my gift as it is usable and trendy too. I purchased it online from

Took my bridesmaids/maid of honor/matron of honor out to dinner for GNO and surprised them with personalized champagne flutes and a placecard that says “As I Prepare for the day when I become Dominic’s bride, it would be a blessing to have you sipping by my side” We toasted and had a great time!

“I would run a mile from anybody who asked me in such a way.” Why, though? These are cute and fun, and offer a great memory. If they’re not your taste and you wouldn’t ask someone by popping a confetti pinata, that’s great, but some of us like to look for little ways to make memories and have a good time. I also feel like putting this much thought into asking your bridesmaids shows them how much you care about having them stand with you on your big day.

That all being said, I think these are adorable. Most of them are a little too cutesy for what I would do (the confetti pinatas, etc.) but I’m loving the idea of the necklace. She will have that necklace forever as a memento of her friendship with you. So sweet.

Oh my god. I just asked them, and I would run a mile from anybody who asked me in such a way.

I bought my bridesmaids their shoes for the wedding then I wrapped the box and made it pretty with the first letter of their name/glitter/bows and on the inside of the lid had a post card asking them to be my bridesmaids. I recorded all of them opening their boxes. It was really awesome cuz they weren’t expecting it.

I absolutely loved all of these! so creative! You can do so much more than just asking the question these days so fun!

I enjoyed all of them…my favorite- “personalized box”-with color palette ideas, important dates, etc.
