What is a bridesmaid proposal?

For those who are new to the concept of a bridesmaid proposal gift - they’re usually presented to your nearest and dearest alongside the question: “Will you be my bridesmaid?”. 

While you and your closest friends may have already pledged to be each other’s bridesmaids from the age of 10, now that the big day has finally come, it’s time to officially recruit them to join your bridal party. 

Whether you pop the question and present your gifts during a spot of afternoon tea, a fancy dinner or a cocktail night out - a bridesmaid proposal will make the moment even more memorable and definitely beats a simple text message.

Do you need bridesmaid proposal gifts?

While nice, gifts are never essential to your wedding planning process. We’re sure all your besties can’t wait to be your bridesmaid, even without the prospect of a gorgeous gift to go alongside the title. 

However, being a bridesmaid is tough work. Some of the main responsibilities and characteristics of a “good bridesmaid” could include: 

  • Emotionally supporting the bride at all times throughout the planning process and the big day itself. 
  • Assisting the Maid of Honour with planning (and paying for) the bridal shower and bachelorette party. 
  • Attending all the pre-wedding events, such as the engagement party, bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner, etc. 
  • Attending multiple dress fittings, as well as purchasing their own bridesmaid dresses and shoes (depending on your budget). 
  • Helping the bride get ready on the day of the wedding. 
  • Making sure the wedding ceremony and reception run smoothly on the day. 
  • Being the life of the party during the reception! 

And, while we agree - who wouldn’t want to be a part of their bestie’s big day? A small gift as a token of your love and appreciation is a lovely touch to add to your to-do list. 

How much should you spend on bridesmaid proposal gifts?

So, how much are we talking exactly? 

As with most things, the statement: “It’s the thought that counts”, definitely applies in this instance. Bridesmaid proposal gifts don’t have to be expensive to be effective. While gorgeous personalised jewellery will always go down well, something as simple as a tailored hand-written letter to each person, like our pick from Gigi and Olive below, is sure to open the floodgates. 

Our selections range from just £4.25 to £125, so whatever your budget, it’s super easy to put a smile on your closest crew’s faces. 

Where to get your besties the perfect “will you be my bridesmaid gift?” for all budgets…

Shop with us, and check out these top gifts hand-curated by our Rock My Wedding team - we think your bridesmaids will adore them! 

And, while this whole being engaged thing is relatively new to you, it’s never too early to start thinking about the all-important (and non-ugly, of course) bridesmaid dresses for your besties to wear on the special day itself. Start simple and ask yourself: are mismatched dresses in for 2024? Or what colour scheme has caught your eye this year? 

Although you likely haven’t even set a date at this stage, you might already have your dream colourways ready to go and etched out in your perfectly formed wedding mood board. Remember, browsing early is key to stress-free planning.
