5 Amazing Bridesmaid Proposal Ideas & Gifts

If you’ve just said YES to the most exciting question of your life, you’re probably bursting at the seams to get on with that all-important next step - screaming it from the rooftops. Next up on the agenda is proposing to your bridesmaids (you know they are waiting to be asked) which can be just as exciting as getting engaged.

Just like baby gender reveals, bridesmaid proposals have become huge with millennials. It’s all about creating that element of surprise and setting a memorable scene that will have your bridesmaids crying tears of joy into their prosecco. What better place to ‘pop that question’ than the beautiful heartlands of the Hunter Valley?

Here are some great ideas to help you plan the perfect bridesmaid proposal and ask your best friends will you be my bridesmaid?

When To Propose To Your Bridesmaids

The further in advance you ask them, the better. For most brides to be, this is around a year to 8 months before the big day. The last thing you want to do is ask them to take a starring role in your big day only to find that they have other commitments. Besides, they’ll be bursting to share the joy with you so don’t hold off for too long.

How To Propose To Your Bridesmaids

As with every type of life event, making it as special as possible plays a big part in building ever-lasting memories. You could go down the simple route of sending a card and a small gift - but there’s something impersonal and slightly lacking with this. To truly up the ante and show them how much it means to you, why not consider one of the following bridesmaid proposal ideas and get ready to walk down the aisle to ‘I Do’ with your most important friends by your side.

1. High Tea Extravaganza

There’s nothing quite as refined as asking your bridesmaids to walk you down the aisle than with a beautiful high tea overlooking rose gardens, vineyards and landscaped grounds. Use your own personalised tea cups with the words “Will you be my bridesmaid?” As they finish their tea, the proposal will reveal itself to them. You could also opt for confetti balloons with the proposal inside, where you’ll literally pop the question to them. Then sink your teeth into finger sandwiches, petit fours, bitesize cakes and a glass of bubble to wrap up the day.

2. Spa Day Spectacular

Who doesn’t like to be pampered and treated to an invigorating facial, relaxing massage or detoxifying sauna? Let your potential bridesmaids know how much they mean to you with a truly indulgent spa day away. Ubika Spa Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, is a sanctuary among the vines with a wide choice of hair, skin and body treatments. Get your girls together for an afternoon of ‘pamper time’ asking them to take on the role of bridesmaid while here. With all of the excitement of being asked, a deep scalp massage will finish the day off perfectly.

3. Wine Weekend Away

Wine and celebrations go together like strawberries and champagne. Why not make your way to one of Australia’s premier wine regions to sample the best local delights in style. Book a stay at Glenmore Country Estate and have easy access to the best wineries, cellar doors and vineyards in the Hunter Valley. Glenmore House is the perfect place to stay with your girlfriends as part of your bridesmaid proposal. Take advantage of all of the facilities and amenities at Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, sample the best locally-produced wines, visit the Hunter Valley Gardens and ask away in style.

4. Pop The Question With a Picnic

Sometimes, the best way to ask your friends something special is with a delicious alfresco picnic. Of course, if you really want to make it special, why not head out on horseback. Make your way down country lanes, crossing vineyards, farmland and beautiful scenery before stopping off for a bite to eat and a glass of bubbles. Include a little note for each bridesmaid in the hamper asking them if they’ll do you the honour of being your bridesmaid? The Hunter Valley is among one of the best places to enjoy horse riding, picnics and the great outdoors, setting the scene for a memorable day.

5. Take To The Skies

Imagine soaring high above the rolling green vineyards and pristine countryside of the Hunter Valley as the sun slowly sets on the horizon, casting the land below in a warm golden glow. Throw in a glass of bubbles and your best friends, and you have the ultimate way to propose to your bridesmaids. Beyond Ballooning offers a magical sunrise flight that gives spectacular views of the Brokenback Range. Enjoy having your photos taken together for free as you ask your girls to be your bridesmaids. You will then be whisked away, to the award-winning Redsalt restaurant for a slap-up champagne breakfast. Located just a few minutes from Glenmore House and Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, it’s the perfect addition for a special girls weekend away.
