So, you were just proposed to in the most perfect way and have the ring selfie to prove it. (Congratulations!) And by now, you've probably settled upon a wedding date and maybe even the venue. So, what’s next? Choosing the bridal party, of course! It used to be that a girl could casually grab coffee or dinner and pop the question to her bridesmaids. But these days, the bridal party proposal is definitely a thing. With so many adorable choices for cards and gifts, why play it safe? It’s a great chance to get thoughtful and creative and get your ladies just as pumped up about the wedding planning as you are.


From what I see, “Will You Be My Bridesmaid” gifts seem to fall into a few different categories. The classic. The functional. And, more recently, the funny. Here are some great Etsy examples that are not only chic and handcrafted but won’t break the bank.

The Classic

These options are sweet, personal, and pretty. They are the classic invitation with some added thought and detail.

The Functional

I see this category growing leaps and bounds, and proof of this is how many of our favorites fit into this category. These gift ideas not only pop the question, but also come with a useful gift item that can be cherished by your girls for months and even years to come.
