Unique Bridesmaids Proposal Ideas

Unique Bridesmaids Proposal Ideas

When wedding planning, there are many factors that require your attention and many decisions to be made. Choosing the venue, the flowers, the colors, the menu, and more can be somewhat stressful. Deer Creek Golf Club understands all of this, which is why we offer our help and guidance along the way, including providing a day-of coordinator to those who use our venue for their weddings. 

One decision our South Florida wedding venue can’t help the bride make is who they want standing up there with them on the big day. Bridesmaids are often some of the bride’s family and close friends that support and love the new chapter in their loved one’s life. A trend that is growing more popular is proposing to the bridesmaids. It is best to ask them within two to three months of getting engaged or sooner. This will give everyone time to plan and be a part of all the pre-wedding activities. This will also allow them time to block out their calendars for the festivities and financially prepare. 

Our professionals at our wedding venue have seen some unique bridesmaid proposal ideas that we want to share with our readers!

What Are Good Bridal Proposal Gifts?

When choosing bridal proposal gifts, there are a few routes that can be taken. The gift can be something that speaks personally to each person or something that is fun for them to use. Some of the most popular options are wine tumblers, jewelry that can be worn to the wedding, or personalized totes and bags for the bachelorette trip or the day of the wedding. Anything fun, creative, and useful is always the best type of proposal idea! Here are some other gifts for fun bridesmaid proposals. 

Champagne Bath Bombs

Bridesmaid’s proposal gifts don’t always have to be super practical. You can get them fun champagne-shaped bath bombs to “pop the question”  to them. A mini champagne bottle can also be added to a little basket along with a special message for them. You can add some OJ to the basket so they can enjoy some delicious mimosas.

Chocolates

If you know your soon-to-be bridesmaid has a sweet tooth, then chocolates are a great gift idea. Include a sweet message inside, along with a guide to what flavor the chocolates are. This can act as a personal gift or just a fun one for your sweet loving friend or family member. 

Cozy Matching Socks or Pajama Sets

Cozy socks or matching pajama sets are a perfect gift if you are planning a trip with your bridesmaids for a bachelorette party or for the day of the wedding to get ready. This will be cute for pictures and an easy gift to put together. At Deer Creek, our wedding venue has beautiful landscapes and gardens that are the perfect backdrop for a wedding party before getting dressed (in the matching pajama sets) and after in the bridesmaid dresses. 

Matching Passport Holders

If you plan on traveling out of the country for your bachelorette trip, then give your group trendy matching passport holders. 

Personalized Bags and Jackets

Though common, one of the most popular gifts to give bridesmaids is personalized jackets and/or bags! Have denim jackets made with their names on them, or just purchase matching jackets that can be used again after your wedding. Everyone loves a practical gift that will last longer than the event, and jackets and bags are the perfect gifts for that. 

There are many unique bridesmaids’ proposal ideas out there that can be used, so think about your bridesmaids and what would be special or unique to them.

Sexy Wedding Dress vs. Classy Wedding Dress

Sexy Wedding Dress vs. Classy Wedding Dress

At our country club in South Florida, we know that your wedding day, and every detail about it, needs to be perfect. One of the most significant aspects is the dress, and Deer Creek Golf Club has seen so many different wedding dress styles that we can offer a great insight into the world of dress shopping.

That is one of the first steps a bride takes in wedding planning. She probably already has an idea of what wedding dress she wants. We’ve also learned that even though they have the idea of what they want, the debate of sexy wedding dress vs. classic wedding dress is still an obstacle they face. So let’s take a closer look! 

Sexy Wedding Dress

Dresses that are bold and make a statement are considered as a more modern style. When shopping for a contemporary wedding dress, you may be drawn towards the sexy, short wedding dresses, or even a sexy, classy wedding dress or two for the brides that want something in between. There are so many different variations of dresses, from the big day itself to the engagement party and bridal shower. If you’re a bride who wants to make a big statement, a naked, sheer, or illusion dress will allow you to do that.

Classy Wedding Dress

For brides who aren’t going for the sexy dress, a more traditional wedding dress would be better. Dresses that are simple and elegant let the bride glow more naturally and subtly. Many well-known bridal shops will have various collections of classy dresses, from ball gown wedding dresses to simple lace gowns. The options are endless. While most are solid white wedding dresses, a few brides like to take their spin on the traditional look. Blush, peach, champagne, ivory, and even off-white colors are used to add a little something to a classy, traditional wedding gown.

How to Choose What Dress?

Still stuck on which dress style you want? At our Florida golf course wedding venue, we recommend trying on as many as you can. Go into wedding dress shopping with an open mind, and the dress will find you. Like we said before, even if you go in with an idea of what you want, which is helpful and will save you some stress, don’t be afraid to step out of your original idea. 

Booking your wedding with Deer Creek means we want to make your big day as stress-free and perfect as possible. So while we can’t pick out the perfect dress for you, we hope our insight into the different styles will help you find your dream dress. Contact us today for more information about our wedding venue and services.
