Wine time

If you and your potential bridesmaid have been known to enjoy a glass of wine or bubbly together, a customised wine label is an innovative way to ask her your special question! Next time you visit, take along a bottle of her favourite shiraz and stick your custom label on it with your choice of words. It’s a lovely gesture and one she’ll surely appreciate.

A well-written and heartfelt card will never go astray. Design or purchase some beautiful stationery and write her a note telling her how much it would mean to you to have her be a part of your special day. Hand deliver the card with a beautiful bunch of flowers and watch the happy tears flow.

A sweet note and a lovely item of jewellery is a great gift option as it is something she can keep forever. You may even like to buy her something that would potentially match what bridesmaid dresses you are planning to choose, so she can wear it on your special day, too.

A personalized candle can never go astray and it’s easy to have custom labels printed. Buy her favourite scent and deliver her a surprise she’ll love and be able to use. The best part is that every time she burns the candle she’ll remember when you asked her to be a bridesmaid.

Piece together the puzzle

A well-designed scratchie card is a novel way to pop your big question. She can scratch off the foil with a coin and read your message underneath. It’ll be – almost – as good as winning the Lotto!

Write your message on a piece of paper and place it inside a balloon. Blow up the balloon and mix it with a big bunch of balloons, and then simply deliver it with the instructions: ‘pop me!’

If you aren’t a particularly gifted artist yourself, you can enlist the help of a professional illustrator to draw a picture of your bridesmaid and yourself with the caption, ‘will you be my bridesmaid?’ You can even go a step further and frame the illustration so she can use it as a piece of art work too!
