How to propose to your bridesmaids and groomsmen

11 April 2024

Proposing to your bridal party is a key moment in your wedding journey. Creating personalized bridesmaid and groomsmen boxes are a wonderful way to show your closest friends and family your deepest appreciation for being a part of your special day. Here are some ideas to help you create memorable and meaningful gifts that can be interrelated with your wedding theme. 

Bridesmaid boxes

Pop the question to your best gals with a bridesmaid box designed to reflect your wedding colors or party theme and personalize each box with your bridesmaid’s name. You can use your Cricut Joy Extra to cut the names, adding a personal touch to their individual boxes. This example was a disco themed event, but if you’re having a destination wedding on a resort, you can change it up by including items like personalized beach towels, sunglasses, and sunscreen. 

Include theme-coordinated items in the box, personalized shot glasses and drink bags with each bridesmaid’s initials or name. Drink bags are easy to carry and eco-friendly, your bridesmaids can use them throughout the wedding celebrations. Alternatively, you can save time by keeping the customization uniform across all drinkware with a simple “Bridesmaid” cup.

If you’re having a destination wedding or a getaway for your bachelorette party, fill the bridesmaid boxes with useful items your BFFs can bring along. Customized pajamas are a great way to make your bridesmaids feel pampered. Couple with other goodies, like mini bottles or snacks, featuring motifs or patterns related to the location and consistent with your color schematic. Small tokens of appreciation to thank them for being there every step of the way. 

Groomsmen and Best Man boxes

How you present yourself when asking your best buds to stand by your side on your big day will make a significant difference. An elegant presentation will inspire your mates and make them feel good about stepping into the role as your best man or a groomsman. Whether you opt for a sturdy wooden box or a luxurious toiletry bag, ensure that the packaging reflects the sophistication of your wedding.

Personalize each box or bag with your groomsmen’s names or initials using your Cricut machine. Fill the boxes with high-quality items that your groomsmen will appreciate, like miniature whiskey bottles, etched glassware, a cigar with a wedding-themed cigar band. Or you can include more practical items, like a pocket knife, a flask, or leather keychain. Thoughtful gifts that will remind your friends and family of your special day long after the wedding. 

These thoughtful boxes will demonstrate your appreciation and will leave your wedding party feeling valued as they honor you on your special day. By incorporating the elements above into your bridesmaid and groomsmen boxes, you’ll create memorable keepsakes that your wedding party will cherish for years to come.
