Asking someone to be a bridesmaid is an exciting and meaningful moment in the wedding planning process. One creative and thoughtful way to do this is by sending a bridesmaid proposal box.

But when is the best time to send a bridesmaid proposal box?

As a general rule, it's a good idea to send the proposal box as soon as you have made the decision to ask a particular person to be a bridesmaid. This allows the bridesmaids-to-be to have plenty of time to plan and prepare for the wedding. It's also a nice gesture to show your enthusiasm and excitement for the wedding.

If the wedding is several months or more away, it might be a good idea to send a "save the date" card or email to let the bridesmaids know that you will be sending the proposal boxes at a later date. This allows them to mark their calendars and make any necessary arrangements.


When it comes to actually putting together the proposal box, the sky is the limit! You can get as creative as you want. Some ideas might include:

A handwritten note or card expressing your appreciation and asking them to be a bridesmaid.
