Your fiance isn't the only one who gets to do the asking—now that you've got the ring, it's time to assemble your bridal party. Asking your close friends to be bridesmaids shows them how much they mean to you, and having a squad of helpers makes all the planning (and celebrating!) so much more fun. Bridesmaid proposal cards are a fun way to set the tone for your wedding party and get them excited for what's to come. You can send them by mail or pair them with a split of champagne or small gift for the ultimate ask. Whether it's with a tongue-in-cheek quip or a bridezilla callout, we've rounded up some of our favorite cards to inspire your own proposal.
