If you’re a fan of the TV series Friends, you must remember how excited Monica was after she was engaged to Chandler and how smart she was to throw the question that who’s gonna be her maid of honor to Phoebe and Rachel. Asking your girls that one big question is almost as exciting as getting engaged but sometimes can be tricky too. So we’ve rounded up some creative ways to ask someone to be your bridesmaid and make the moment you pop the question more meaningful to them.
1. Homemade Cookies
Customize cookies with letters that will lead your girls to figure out the “will you be my bridesmaid” message.
No one can resist the temptation of a delicate pack of chocolate. Get the message carved on the chocolate and it’ll get clearly delivered in a sweet way.

Customize the wine bottle with a printed photo of you two together and send it as a gift. Thinking about the happy moments you’ve been together, she’s gonna say yes.
4. Wine Glass
If you’re planning to pop the question at your engagement party, swap out their regular wine glasses with the message stuck on them.
