1. A Beautiful Hamper
Send out a beautiful bridesmaid proposal hamper to all your bridesmaids-to-be. If you have the time and want to get crafty create them yourself and tailor them to each friend. We suggest including their favourite items like; wine, chocolate, jewellery, silk pjs, face masks, candles and a super sweet note asking them the important question.

Etsy has some great options or visit one of the many online businesses like The Bridal Box Co and Bridesmaid Boxes that specialize in custom hampers. This is a fabulous idea if your besties don't live close by.
