When I think about gift-giving, I think of things that people will want/actually use.
While I was hunting for ideas – I saw a lot of gorgeous custom-made proposal boxes – but they were all about $50-70/each.
I chose to keep the bridesmaid proposal gift under $20 so I could put more money toward the actual wedding day gift instead.
In all reality, you don’t necessarily need to gift a gift when asking your bridesmaids to be in your wedding, but that’s my love language and I can’t be stopped from expressing it!
Everything you see above was about $18.50. 🙂
How?! I’ll fill you in on my tactics below…
First of all… How is it all just $18.50?!
Flower Petal Bath Soaps
Mini Bottle of Wine (Most of my girls prefer Cabernet instead of bubbly)
Champagne Flute (For the Bridal Shower, Bachelorette Party & Wedding Day)
Shredded Paper Filling
Love Letter with Confetti inside
WHERE TO FIND THE GOODS
Photo Box – Michaels (They do a sale on often. I bought 10/$10 – using the rest for other gift boxes.)
Monogram Stickers – Michaels (These sticker packages with 6 letters in each were in a $.50 bin. They have them all of the time!)
Satin Ribbon – Hobby Lobby (They have sales every other month or so for 50% off. I got a roll for $1.50.)
Flower Petal Bath Soaps – Dollar Tree (They have pretty gifts like this is in their bath aisle. $1/each.)
Mini Bottle of Wine – Bakers (Pack of 4 for just $4.99 on sale – regularly $7.99 – wait for the sale.)
Champagne Flute – At Home (They sell these for $1.25 or less, you can also buy in bulk for your wedding day.)
Shredded Paper Filling – Dollar Tree ($1/pack)
Bridesmaid T-shirt – Seven Streams Boutique / Brianna Brown (She customized them for $14/each. One free for every 10 bought.)
Love Letter with Confetti inside – Anywhere (I got these free from The Knot and Brit + Co. Follow their insta!)
I ended up getting my family members (MOB/MOG/FOB/FOG) a matching t-shirt, too. 🙂
It’s fun to give the t-shirt right away so your girls can wear them with you to bridal fairs and other wedding planning festivities!
I’ll have a post soon to share about how I included my good friends & family members beyond just my small bridal party of 4 –
and I’ll go into detail about how my mister ‘proposed’ to his groomsmen creatively too!
