Almost immediately after I got engaged, I knew I wanted to do something just as special for my bridesmaids as Bill had done for me with our picture perfect proposal. I began by searching high and low for ideas of what kind of goodies to include in bridesmaid proposal boxes and let me tell you there are LOTS of ideas out there of how to compile the perfect bridesmaid box. But none seemed perfect for my gals… I mean mini champagne bottles are super cute, but are you really going to sip on that by yourself?
I decided full size bottles of sparkling wine were the way to go! That way they could choose to save it for a special occasion and break it out for themselves when the timing was just right. Next, I knew I wanted to add something unique and fun. Originally, I thought of including flower crowns, but once I started researching, nothing seemed high enough quality for what I was willing to spend. That’s when I stumbled upon Compartes Chocolatier and OMG, I am glad that I did. All their chocolate bar flavors are super interesting and everything I tried was beyond this world, yum! Some of my picks were Apple Pie, Cereal Bowl, and Donuts & Coffee!
To finish the whole package off, I went over to my local Whole Foods to use their floral geniuses to create individual mini bouquets for each of my fabulous ladies. For less than $50 in flowers, they created six gorgeous arrangements that really took my box proposals from cute to FAB! If you’ve never gone to Whole Foods to buy flowers before, you’re doing it all wrong. They are my dirty little secret for any and all floral gifts. Not only are the flowers super fresh, but they will always rewrap your picks in kraft paper and tie it all up with twine for that picture perfect Instagram.
Once the boxes were complete I hand delivered them to my six besties, complete with adorable Super Paper LA cards and lucky for me they all accepted my proposal.
