It’s quickly become a tradition to ask your best friends to be your bridesmaids in fun and creative ways. Credit it to Pinterest or just the Internet in general, but I would go so far as to say that it’s now one of the biggest wedding traditions out there! If you’re looking for creative ways to ask your bridesmaids to be in your wedding—whether you see them every day or haven’t seen them in months, this list will have you covered! Whether you’re sending something across the country or hand-delivering it, you’ll have a blast asking your besties to be in your wedding with these fun ideas!
1. Send a Care Package
If your bestie lives far away, put together a care package of goodies that your friend will need as she gets ready for your big day. Throw in some nail polish, some jewelry, a small bottle of champagne, and any other items you think are essential. It’ll be a great surprise for your best friend to get in the mail!
2. Or Just a Simple Card
If you’re working on a budget, just send a card in the mail instead. There are so many clever and cute cards on Pinterest and Etsy just waiting for you to buy them and send them to your friends! Your friends will be so excited to get your invite to be a bridesmaid in the mail.
3. A Ring Pop
You’ve gotten your ring, so why not send something sweet to your best friend to ask them to be in your wedding? Give them Ring Pops as a clever little nod to your impending nuptials. It’s such a cute way to ask your best friends to be involved on the best day of your life.
4. Send a Locket
Lockets have so much meaning behind them. They hold memories and different pictures you may have. Why not remind your friends of some of those amazing memories and moments with a locket that holds something that reminds you of your friend. Your friends will be so happy that you put so much thought into their gift!
5. Gift a T-Shirt
Find a t-shirt with a clever saying on it, or just find a t-shirt that says “Bridesmaid” on it and give it to your best friend. Especially if you decided to surprise your friends with your engagement, gifting them with this t-shirt is definitely shriek-worthy.
6. Come up with a Clever Riddle
If you’re creative or just someone who enjoys writing, come up with your own clever riddle to ask your friends to be in your wedding. It’s a fun way to be creative when it comes to wedding planning, and it makes things a little more fun!
