Wedding Planning in South Africa

When I got engaged, I immediately started thinking who will be my bridesmaids and how will I ask them to be my bridesmaids. I always loved the idea of giving them a gift and I’ve seen a few cute ideas on Pinterest, so I thought I will make my own Will You Be My Bridesmaids Gifts.

All you need is:

  • a small box – I used mini takeaway boxes  ( I think I paid R18 for 25)
  • Will You Be My Bridesmaids Stickers (I used the printables from Scribbles & Bows below and printed them out on sticker paper)
  • Some twine in your wedding colours (also from Scribbles & Bows)
  • Goodies you want to add (I added a hand lotion, lip ice, nail file, candy, some shooters for my over 18 bridesmaids and a little chart with my wedding colours)
  • I added a wooden letter with the initials of the bridesmaids as extra decor



I added the sticker on the inside of the box, so that it literally “popped the question” when she opened it. Over all, I loved how it turned out.
