Congratulations! You’ve found your one true love that you get to live happily ever after with!

Now, that you’ve said yes, and the wedding planning can begin, it’s time to start thinking about which friends or family you want by your side on your big day. It seems that these past couples of years, brides have been doing a bridesmaid proposal to their own maids to see if they will stand by her side while she promises her love and devotion to the man she loves.

Brides have been coming up with fun little bridesmaid boxes and maid of honor gifts filled with personalized gifts for their girls. It’s a nice gesture in advance for the support they will be giving the bride in the next couple of months. Planning a wedding is no joke and we are all very familiar with the term “bridezilla”. These bridesmaid boxes are usually filled with champagne, candy and small gifts such as matching mugs, cosmetic bags, and robes for the big day.

So if you’re wondering what is a good bridesmaid gift, don’t stress it! We’ve rounded up a couple of our favorite gifts that we think should be in your next Bridesmaid proposal box. Take a look at some of our favorite maid of honor proposal and bridesmaid proposal ideas!
