So you're engaged and you've spread the news, that in the next year or two you'll be walking down the aisle with your one true love. It is such a special time and it is likely that very soon after, you'll want to ask your nearest and dearest whether they will stand beside you on your wedding day as your Bridesmaid or Maid of Honour.
Your bridesmaids are your best friends, the women that have been there for you through thick and thin, and who you just can't imagine not being with on your special day.
Choosing who is going to be in your Bridal party, can be a difficult and sometimes painful decision. In truth, for many of us it is something we’ve been weighing up years before we’re even engaged.
Once you are set on who you are going to have, the next fun step is planning on how you are going to ask them to create a special moment and memory. There are lots of beautiful ways to pop the question (Pinterest is bursting with 'Bridesmaid proposal' ideas), whether it be with a gorgeous box of macaroons, or even a simple Monica Vinader style bracelet with 'Bridesmaid' delicately engraved.
A few months ago, we started to see several Brides use our robes as a way to propose to their Bridesmaids. We love this idea, and are so touched at the thought of Brides presenting their closest friends with one of our personalised luxury robes.
It is partly because of this trend that we decided to launch gift boxes to help create more of an 'unwrapping' experience. Each robe that is purchased with a gift box is folded in a very unique way so that the embroidery is visible when you open the lid of the box. When the receiver opens it, their heart will skip a beat as it will be unmissable as to what this gift means to both them and you.
What is lovely too about gifting them with one of our robes is that it can of course be reused and worn on your wedding day, meaning that all the Bridal party will look beautifully coordinated and photo ready from the get go.
Are you thinking about proposing to your Bridesmaids soon? Let us know how in the comments below. We’d also love to hear from you if you’d like to work with us to create a unique Bridal Proposal. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.s. If you're looking to purchase four or more robes we've recently launched two luxury bridesmaid sets, which are perfect for larger bridal parties.
