Remember, the best gifts are often  personalised and thoughtful

Consider the bride-to-be's interests and hobbies when selecting a gift, and think about what will be useful and meaningful to her.


Getting married is so extremely special to every happy couple, and you naturally want to be able to celebrate with all your favourite people, and to have a special few walk you in or stand by your side on the big day. Bridesmaids are increasingly becoming an integral part of the wedding party for most South Asian weddings, and a thoughtful proposal gift can help show them how much their participation means.

Finding the perfect bridesmaid proposal gift can be a challenge, so to help make the process easier, here are some suggestions for gifts that your bridesmaids will actually want.

As well as finding something unique, personalised & thoughtful, we think you should also opt for something sustainable which can be used time & time again. In a recent poll, we found that numerous ex-bridesmaids own way too many champagne flutes or shot glasses, which they don’t really use again and they end up in the attic! 

Our biggest suggestion is to think carefully about what you would like to receive or re-use in the future, and curate a proposal gift based upon that. 

Numerous brides opt for matching presents, when truly, it may be more meaningful to get presents according to your friendship with your bridesmaid. Going one step further and personalising the item will truly make for the perfect gift.

A wonderful addition to your proposal box is a ‘bridesmaid cheat sheet’ - which covers all of the key bridesmaid questions: when is the hen? What should we wear? What can we do to help?
