You’re engaged to your boo, but now it’s your turn to pop the second-most important question to your best gals: Will You Be My Bridesmaid?
It’s a huge favor to ask of your girlfriends, what with all the stress and money (and sometimes drama) that may come with the territory. You’ll want to let them know how much you really need them leading up to and during the Big Day.
Best way to make them feel special? A custom bridesmaid box your girls will love.
ICYMI, we just pushed out an epic giveaway in conjunction with Green Wedding Shoes and Wedding Chicks — and brides-to-be and bridesmaids have been inspired by it.
Here’s what you need to create your very own one-of-a-kind gift box for each of your bridesmaids.
First things first: You’ll need a gift box, wrapping or shredded paper and ribbon to hold all the goodies. It’s no secret that we’re a fan of pink and gold here at Bijou, but why not hint at your wedding color palette to your bridesmaids-to-be? Paper Presentation has a great selection of the cutest wrapping material in all shapes and colors.
Bijou Luxury Candles
No bridesmaid gift box is complete without a luxury candle. Petit Bijou candles are the perfect size, plus their French-inspired bases are enough to make any gal swoon. You can’t go wrong with Bijou’s French Lavender and Wild Lilac scents — popular among brides-to-be.
Pop the question while popping a bottle of Moet & Chandon. Include this mini Moet bottle along with a Pink Bellini Petit Bijou candle, and they’ll say ‘yes’ before you can finish the question. Another alternative for the liquor-loving bridesmaid: Carry on Cocktail Kit. You’re already set for the flight to Vegas.
Travel-Friendly Beauty Products
Lately, we’ve been obsessed with Herbivore Botanicals. Not only are all their beauty products made from natural ingredients and essential oils, but they make you feel and smell hella good. Include their lip-smacking Rose Lip Conditioner or Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mists for that quick refresher.
Day-of Wedding Essentials
It’ll be a long day, so prep your besties with wedding day essentials like foldable ballet shoes from Talaria Flats (each come in a cute pouch!) and Pinch Provisions ‘Be My Bridesmaid’ kits, which literally includes everything from stain removers to double side tape. Toss in a 5-hour Energy shot and you’re gold.
