The question has been popped, the answer given, and it's time to plan your wedding. As any bride-to-be can attest, the road from "Yes, I'll marry you" to "I do" can be a long one, and you want your besties by your side to help you plan the perfect day.
First on your long list of to-dos is to get your friends onboard as bridesmaids, and proposing to them with a customized box from Distinct Packaging filled with goodies is a show-stopping way to demonstrate to your girls just how special they are to you and how important it is that they'll be there for you on the big day.
It's easy to create custom boxes at Distinct Packaging with your wedding colors, date, hashtag, or whatever is most "you," but what are you going to put inside your super-cool personalized boxes? We’ve got 5 ideas for what to put into your will you be my bridesmaid boxes. And don't miss your chance to win up to 100 free custom boxes from Distinct Packaging via our contest on Wedding Vibe—full details at the end of this article.
1. Spa treats.
Your bridesmaids and maid of honor are about to put a lot of time, money, and effort into your wedding. Let them know they’re appreciated before things get started with a box filled with spa goodies such as a bath bomb, scrubbing mitt, bath salts, a candle, lavender sachet, face mask, and other relaxing accoutrements to recreate a day at the spa at home.
A bottle of wine or Champagne in a custom beverage carrier, the fixings for a drink that reveals your wedding location in a personalized shipping box (pina colada ingredients for a beach wedding), or mini bottles of booze for a bridesmaid-only getaway in a custom gable box—no matter which direction you go, your ladies will appreciate kicking things off with a relaxing drink. For a fun twist, add personalized coasters with your wedding date printed on them.
You can stuff a lot of makeup into a custom pizza box printed with your wedding colors. Nail polish, lipstick, mascara, makeup brushes, and blotting papers—or perhaps your own favorite makeup—are all welcome additions to your special bridesmaid box. Consider printing the phrase "Will you be my bridesmaid?" on the inside lid; it's a fun way to pop the question to the special ladies in your life.
Who can say "no" to a donut, fancy chocolate bar, or bag of candy? Whether you put just a couple of sweet treats in a small personalized pillow pack or assemble a whole feast of snacks that mean something to you and your girls and package it up in a customized mailer box, a box of your favorite treats is a fun way to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids.
5. Match to a Theme.
Maybe you decide to make your bridesmaid proposal box all about the location where you'll be getting married, maybe you want to stuff the box with things that remind you of special moments with your girls, maybe you want the contents to be a prequel to a bridesmaids’ getaway, or maybe you want to fill it with goodies your ladies can use on the wedding day. No matter what you fill your customized box with, know that you can make the box itself special by adding pictures, text, and colors that are special to you and your wedding day by using Distinct Packaging.
