I'm so excited to share with you all how I made my bridesmaid proposal boxes on a budget! When I was putting together my bridesmaid proposals, I knew that I wanted to create something that was both budget-friendly and stylish.


I had three criteria for my bridesmaid proposal boxes: 

First, I wanted to keep them budget-friendly since I have ten bridesmaids. I was able to keep the cost of each box at around $30, which is much cheaper than what I've seen on Pinterest, etc.

Second, I didn't want the word "bridesmaid" plastered all over the box.

And third, I wanted the items to be cute and something that my bridesmaids would use for a long time.

Here's how I did it:

To create my bridesmaid proposal boxes, I used the following materials:

the Process

Here's how I put together my bridesmaid proposal boxes:

STEP 1. I designed cards on Canva to put in each box.

STEP 2. I found cute white candles at Target for $10 and replaced the label with a graphic (we also made on Canva) that said the wedding date.

STEP 3. I got candle stuffers and candle wick cutters on sale from Crate and Barrel for $9 each.

STEP 4. I put together a box of black matches, clear acrylic square jar , and black sand.

STEP 5. To make the matchbox even more special, I added striker paper on the bottom of each box.

STEP 6. I had some extra fluff from my planner, so I put a little bit of that in each box. However, Michael's also sells this filler if you don't have any on hand.


I'm so happy with how my bridesmaid proposal boxes turned out! They are wedding-themed without being too obvious, and my bridesmaids will be able to use the items for a long time (hopefully 🤪). Happy I was able to create something that's both budget-friendly and stylish (was definitely stressing there for a second with what I was going to do).
