You're finally engaged and can't wait to tell your closest family or friends that you want them to be a big part of your special day-- we're talking about choosing your bridesmaids. 

But how?

Asking someone to be your bridesmaid is no longer just a question; recently, the fun has been turned up a notch so that you can pop the question in a more creative way. Whatever your wedding style may be, we've got five ways to get you inspired that will easily make your friends or family say "I do."

Say it with purpose

Could there be a cuter way than to display the message on a kerchief? The Wedding Chicks have created a personalized way to ask, as well as something that actually serves a purpose for the big day. They will surely need something to dab their eyes with during your ceremony! An added bonus: They have a lovely little piece of memorabilia to remember your day by.  

Say it with a sweet treat

What’s a sweeter way to ask a friend than with dessert? The Flour Pot makes incredible looking (and tasting!) cookies that ask the question for you. She’ll enjoy your proposal for a whole minute, then nibble away at the delicious gift. 

Say it with spirit

Wine is one of a girl's many best friends, so why not pop the question to your bridesmaid-to-be on a wine label? StudioBLabels product says it perfectly: "I've got my guy, but need my girls. Be my bridesmaid?" You’ll be guaranteed to share a toast right after she accepts the proposal. 

Say it old-school

If you’re the kind of girl who sends a thank-you for everything, then ask with a card! The Dessy Group created a card that allows you to choose a bridesmaid dress color of your choice-- which can also be a fun way to tell your girls what color they'll be wearing. Your bridesmaids will love opening up a card that asks the question for you. Add a few lines on how much they mean to you, and you're all set.
