How To Build The Sweetest "Will You Be My Bridesmaid?" Gift Box

02 Oct 2019

You’ve said yes to your groom and now it’s time to “pop” the question to your best friends with a bridesmaid gift box. Building a “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box requires some careful thought and planning. After all, you want it to be filled with things both useful and meaningful. To help you construct the perfect “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box, here’s a look at 5 different things you can include, plus some helpful tips for packaging and wrapping.




Where to Start? The Bridesmaid Gift Box Itself


Consider going for white and gold gift boxes with customized vinyl name decal. You can also go for unfinished wooden boxes with sliding tops which your bridesmaids can use as a keepsake box. Add a ribbon of almost any color, and you have a beautiful bridesmaid gift box that will be just as attractive as it is meaningful.


What to Put Inside?


  • Bridesmaid Jewellery


The foundation of a good “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box is something to wear, and bridesmaid jewelry is your best option given how limited your gift box space will be. Consider a personalized bridesmaid necklace/bracelet/bangle. You can also go for stud earrings that are made of Swarovski crystals, something every bridesmaid would be delighted to wear on your wedding day. 


The good news is that a thoughtful, personalized piece of bridesmaid jewelry doesn’t have to be prohibitively expensive, meaning you’ll have plenty of budget to invest in other items for your box.




  • Self-Care Products


After you get something to wear, add in a little something for self-care. This could be as simple as picking out a lotion with a pleasant scent, a relaxing body wash or colorful bath bombs. 


Again, when choosing something for self-care, you can opt to get the same thing for each of your bridesmaids, or you can custom select an item for each one. A little bit of personalization goes a long way, though it does mean more work and more thinking as you construct each gift box.




  • Something to Use


This is one area where you can have a lot of fun: choosing something to use. The options are limitless, but some of the most popular bridesmaid gifts you can opt to include: stemless wine glass or champagne flute, monogrammed journal, leather clutch, makeup bag, or a tote bag. 


No matter what you choose, make sure it’s something of quality and durable and that your bridesmaids will really use. 




  • Personalized Items


A “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box won’t be special without something personalized. And “personalized” means more than just a monogram. 


You have so many great options for making your gift boxes more personal. For starters, you can handwrite a note. Use this note to tell your bridesmaids-to-be how special they are to you and how much you would appreciate them sharing your big day. In short, write notes that your bridesmaids will want to keep forever. Another option is you can also add in a photo of you and your bridesmaid. This works great in tandem with a personalized note and/or a bridesmaid picture frame. You can reminisce about a shared memory that means a lot to you, and then include a photo that captures that same memory.


The cool thing about writing a note and including a photo is that those will be the most treasured items in your “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box and they will also be the most affordable.




  • Something For The Wedding Day


Lastly, use your “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box to help get members of your wedding party excited about the actual day. Your best bet here is to get something for your bridesmaids-to-be to wear while getting ready on the day of the ceremony. Bridesmaid robes are always a good option, or you can even opt for pajamas or T-shirts with your bridesmaids’ names on them.




How to Pack?


The last thing you’ll need for your gift box is something to pack the items in. Visit your local DIY store and buy some wood wool in bulk. Wood wool is a much more fitting packing material, and it will help keep anything breakable (wine glasses, candles, etc.) safe during transit. If you can’t find wood wool, paper shred makes a nice alternative. These materials help enhance the perceived value of a “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box without requiring you to make a huge additional investment. 


Final Thoughts on How to Build a “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” Gift Box


There’s no rule for how many items you need to include in your “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box. We’ve listed 5 great options above, but you may find that your personalized item is also usable, or that your something to wear is also something for the day of the wedding. Have fun building your “Will you be my bridesmaid?” gift box!
