Proposing to your BFF

You said yes, now will she?

So the biggest thing recently happened to you… the love of your life popped the question, now it’s over to you!

So when you got engaged you probably couldn’t wait to tell everyone and shout about your engagement from the rooftops and I’m betting top of the list is your best friend… Now it’s time to ask her to be your maid of honour, then there’s the other bridesmaids to ask!

How should you do it, how can you do it? will this be a big surprise or will the BFF be expecting this?

In the day and age of Pinterest and Etsy the ideas are endless, however we’ve come across a few that we love, this is our favourite 5 ways to pop the question to your BFF!! <3



I couldn’t say ‘I Do’ without you! this is a popular quote for items when asking your best friend to be a bridesmaid, have a brief look via a Google search and the items will be endless, necklaces, key rings your bridesmaid/ maid of honour will love that and also have something to keep forever




Fortune cookies: Girls night in! What about a nice chineses take away with your number 1 ladies, make it more fun by ordering personalised fortune cookies and hand them out to your completely unsuspecting bridesmaids! It will be a fortune they will love to receive!



Say it with wine? personalised wine labels are becoming increasingly popular, get a picture of the two of you together and ask her on the wine bottle… when she says yes you also have the bottle of wine to celebrate with!



Jigsaw puzzles… if your friend is a bit of a dab hand at puzzles why not create her a jigsaw puzzle? there are many sites online where you can create a free jigsaw puzzle- email her the link, when she completes the jigsaw she’ll see the question, similarly have you considered a crossword, use words that mean something to you and with a letter from each answer it makes up ‘will you be my bridesmaid? you’ll definitely get points for creativity!



balloons! who doesn’t love balloons! blow up a balloon and inside place lots of confetti and glitter and include a piece of paper… literally popping the question to your bridesmaid!
