Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes, Adorable & Budget Friendly.

bridesmaid proposal header

Getting engaged is fun, but asking your favorite ladies to be by your side is even more fun. James popped the question and now it was my turn! I had so much fun planning my bridesmaid proposal boxes. I even started them THREE months before I gave them to anyone. Of course being the ever conscious money-spender that I am, I did it all on a budget.

Now you can go the full glam route and buy the cute pre-made boxes and cards. However, I went the Thrifty-Shelly route (there’s still a wedding to pay for right?!).

Spoiler Alert: They all said yes!

 

 

What I Included in My BridesMaid Proposal Boxes

Each box was filled with the following:

  • Confetti
  • Flowers
  • A Candle
  • Nail-polish
  • A bathbomb
  • A bracelet
  • Bridal Tee
  • Mini bottle of Italian Prosecco
  • A Bride Squad Glass to drink said Prosecco
  • And lastly a card popping the question!

 

 

 

Where to get items for Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes on the cheap?!

Dollar Tree

The Dollar Tree – is your friend, trust me on this. I walked out with 2 packages of 3 foldable gift boxes. While there, I also got 6 bags of confetti, 6 candles, and 6 bottles of nail-polish. The candles were a delicious “blushing wine” scent, that I’m convinced I need to get more of for myself. To decorate the boxes I grabbed a ball of twine and three bundles of flowers. For my junior bridesmaid, I added an adorable faux-pearl headband, and lip balm! All of that was a whopping $26.

Hamrick’s, Amazon & Total Wine

At my local Hamrick’s, I scored a package of 8 bath-bombs for $5. Searching through Amazon, I found a package of 6 “I Can’t Tie the Knot Without You” Bracelets for just $16.99. The mini-bottles of Prosecco I picked up at Total Wine were only $17, and mind you I only bought 5! No booze for the jr. bridesmaid.

Facebook MarketPlace & Etsy

While scrolling through Facebook Marketplace, I came across a bride selling extra Bride Squad Glasses that she didn’t need. She had to purchase a couple sets in order to fill her boxes, and ended up with extras. For $5 I managed to get 5 pink Bride Squad glasses and 1 white Bride Squad Glass. Another instance where I didn’t get one for the jr. bridesmaid as she wasn’t going to be drinking any Prosecco.

However, the one item that cost the most was the Bridal Tee. Off to Etsy I went, and spent $79 on shirts for my Bridal Party and a Bride tee for me! It was really important to me to buy the tees for the girls. I didn’t want them to have to buy them later on for a bachelorette party and deal with that expense. Now that expense is already taken care of! 

Canva

Last but not least, the proposal cards. Instead of purchasing pre-made proposal cards off amazon/etsy – I decided to make my own personalized cards. I’m a big fan of Canva, which is where I made my Save The Dates, and used this website to design my one of a kind proposal cards! This was one of my favorite pieces of the bridesmaid proposal box because I was able to personalize each card to the person. A trip to my local UPS store to have them printed out only set me back $3.46.

 

 

 

 

 

Total Cost

My total damage for all of my Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes was only $152.45. I spent roughly $150 for 6 bridesmaid proposal boxes, and managed to get myself a Bridal Tee and Bride Squad glass. Considering that I had to make these boxes for six ladies, I was quite pleased with myself. I put everything in the boxes, tied it with twine and a bow & wrote their names on the boxes. All in all I was really happy with how the boxes came out for only $25 a person.

I was really lucky that all of my bridesmaids except two were able to attend our Engagement Party and I was able to ask them in person. My remaining two bridesmaids, my already sister, but future sister-in-law, and future niece couldn’t make it. BUT, James’ mom was visiting them the following week and graciously took their boxes with her!
