The Local Bride: Popping the Question

Hey y’all,

One thing I have been especially looking forward to is popping the question to my bridesmaids.

I knew I didn’t want to just send a text asking my girls to stand by my side—I wanted to do something more personal to show them how much they mean to me.

I went to Pinterest and found so many great ideas out there. I fell in love with the idea of “proposing” to my maids with goodie boxes that contained fun, unique personalized items.

Here’s what you’ll need if you want to make something similar to what I made:

  • Any type of gift box
  • Photos of you (frames are from Hobby Lobby)
  • A Lush Bath Bomb
  • Starbucks gift card (or any gift card that you know your friends will love)
  • Personalized “Save the Date” and engagement ring cookies from local Lily’s Cookies
  • Custom “Will you be my bridesmaid?” scratch off cards found on Etsy
  • A “wedding details” card that tells a little about your day and your bridal party
  • Fun candy


What’s nice about this particular idea is that you can tailor it to fit your bridal party. For instance, I know all of my girls love Starbucks more than the average person, so it was an easy decision to include the gift card.

These were so much fun to make, I hope you can get creative. And remember: taking time to do these sentimental projects can really show the ones you love how much you care—so worth it!

Until next time,
The Local Bride
