DIY bridesmaid proposal gifts for your #bridesquad

October 18, 2021 by Alexis Gulbransen

So, your partner popped the big question and now it’s time to celebrate!


This also means you’ll soon ask close friends and family another important inquiry: will you be my bridesmaid? Spreading pre-wedding excitement with your bridal party may include the growingly popular bridesmaid proposal gifts.

Many brides-to-be send their wedding squad gift boxes or baskets stuffed with goodies to commemorate the occasion. Including handcrafted keepsakes in these boxes is the perfect way to create a unique, personalized experience for the people who’ll be helping you keep it together until the big day.

DIY bridesmaid proposal gifts come together quickly and beautifully with a Cricut machine. If you recently got engaged, try crafting these customizable proposal projects.

Must-have DIY bridesmaid proposal gifts

All about the invite

Every bridesmaid basket needs a creative card to announce the occasion. Handcraft yours without sacrificing style or aesthetic. Our Design Space library has a wealth of wedding invitation and “save the date” templates customizable as a bridal party proposal. We recommend jazzing up the standard announcement with small surprises, like a temporary tattoo or sticker.

Coordinating tees

Prep your squad for your special day with coordinated t-shirts. Save this stylish gift for bridal showers and bachelorettes, connecting your closest confidants with festive designs. Try a bold, vintage-inspired statement or add bridal party positions to each tee for a personalized touch. Whatever you decide, our EasyPress heat press tech will ensure your handiwork is seamlessly transferred onto any apparel.

Bridesmaid mugs

Share a little extra love with your bridesmaids by crafting them a commemorative mug. Custom mugs and drinkware make wonderful, long-lasting bridesmaid proposal gifts, and you can repurpose them for wedding seasons to come. Each time your BFFs take a sip of their favorite warm and cozy concoctions, they’ll think of the happy memories you shared.

A take-along tote

Tie your proposal box together with a tasteful tote to hold all the wedding-themed goodies. This is an especially great option for any bride planning a bachelorette trip where traveling bridesmaids may need a chic pool or beachside bag. Craft these matching totes using Infusible Ink sheets, then add a fun keychain or scarf to further embellish your design.
