DIY: MOH/Bridesmaid Proposal Box

Updated: Aug 23

From the moment I had my proposal, I knew I had to do the right things a create a Bridesmaid proposal for my bridal party - I got straight onto Pinterest (follow me) to see what ideas are floating about and did a quick google search, many took me to personalised boxes, make up bags and a whole set pre-packed and ready for purchase.

The more I researched, the more I tried to find the products that were worth the price, read all the reviews and considered so many options - luckily, I do not have a large bridal party only: 1 x Maid of Honour, 2 x Bridesmaids and a Flower Girl, which naturally kept the costs low, but I love a good challenge and I love making things myself.

So I took it upon myself to create my own personalised box on a budget.

I began my search online as per usual, but i am an excited and impatient woman - I could not sit still and wait for things to arrive, so on my day off, I went for a gander at the Flying Tiger to see what they have to offer, it took me a few searches in different branches to find what I was looking for, but I finally found a great box to use, to personalised and based the contents inside around the box itself.

So the journey began near home, with having an outlet just minutes walk away, I knew I hit the goldmine and it so happened, that I found everything I needed.

Products used with pricing:

Box - Flying Tiger: £1 each (was £2)

Candles - Yankee Candle Outlet: 12 for £10

Nail Varnish - Beauty Outlet: £1.99 each

Bath Fizz - Beauty Outlet: £3.99 for a box

Total: £25.95 / 4 = £6.49 per proposal box

The rest I used from items I already had at home, like a black sharpie pen to write their names on the front of the box and the popping question on the inside, and I hand shredded coloured paper to act as a bed to the items inside.
