This all starts when you ask them to take on the role. It is also thoughtful to consider that the best people in your world deserve more than just a text or a phone call for this momentous occasion. So asking bridesmaids should be done in the most special, creative and thoughtful way possible.
But thinking about how to ask your besties, “will you be my bridesmaid?” doesn’t need to be stressful. Granted you may feel a little nervous and have some butterflies. Maybe even a little fear that someone won’t say yes. But on the whole proposing to your bridesmaids and maid of honor is a fun and stress-free experience.

And while you shouldn’t sweat the small things, a little planning ahead will make things easier for everyone. So read on to discover who you should choose to be in your wedding party and ways to pop the question to them.
Part 3. Who To Choose?
The first thing to think about. When asking your bridesmaids the big question: “will you be my bridesmaid?” Is exactly what it is you are asking them to do. Because in their role as your bridesmaid, not only are they standing up with you and supporting you on your wedding day. But you are also asking them to be there for you at any bridal events that take place before your big day. This could be anything from planning your bridal shower, being there at your bachelorette party and any other wedding festivities, buying and wearing the bridesmaid dress. So you should take into consideration things like do they live out of town, do they have young children that they can’t leave for extended time, etc.
Next some brides-to-be have known who they want as their bridesmaids since they were five years old? If that’s not you that’s ok, you don’t have spend weeks fretting over your decision? After you’ve set the date (and start counting down the days.) The suggestions laid out below will effortlessly guide you in making it official with your bridesmaids.
The first place you start is with a list of all possible candidates for your bridal party. This list usually includes any of your sisters and brothers (if you want) and brothers and sisters-in-law. You can also choose any of your dearest relatives and closest friends. It is also a good idea to choose people who you trust and who have been in your life for a long time. To sum it up the qualities that make someone a good bridesmaid is. Someone who has been by your side through thick and thin, seen you at your worst and and are now seeing you at your best. This especially applies to choosing your maid of honor.
Part 4. How Many Bridesmaids Should You Have?
It’s a good idea to have the size of your bridal party in proportion to the number of guests at your wedding. If for example, you and your partner want a small wedding, don’t include dozens in your bridal party and only have 3 wedding guests.
It is also important to note, there is no law saying you have to have the same number in your bridal party as your partner has in theirs. Keeping numbers relatively similar seems to work best. Your wedding party also doesn’t have to be gender specific. If you’d like to include all genders in your bridal party, go for it! Your bridal party should be chosen because of your relationship with each person you include, and not because of their gender.
Having bridesmaids there for you is not just about necessity on the day. It is also about having a group to have fun with before you get married. Now that you have your list of bridesmaids-to-be, it is just a matter of asking them if they will be there for you.
Part 5. What Is The Perfect Way To Ask?
Exactly how you should ask your bridesmaids, all depends on your crowd. It can be done one-on-one over a coffee or wine. You could gather everyone you want together in a group on a night out. Another popular way to ask your gals is to set up a movie night, break out the popcorn, and hit play on your favorite rom-com movie.

One of the simplest, most affordable (and most popular) ways to ask your bridesmaids is with a will you be my bridesmaid card that has a heart-felt message in it.
