SHOWER THEM WITH LOVE THROUGH PERSONALIZED BRIDESMAIDS CARDS
Congratulations on your recent engagement! The months ahead will be preoccupied with wedding planning tasks such as picking a venue, finalizing a wedding date, and selecting your wedding party. Once you have finalized your bridesmaid list, Minted is here to help you compose and send the most touching “will you be my bridesmaid” cards that will capture the hearts of your inner circle of friends. Our creative handmade designs, clever wording, and attention to quality and detail will guarantee that your bridesmaid proposal cards are just as sentimental as the wedding proposal itself!
Your wedding party is made up of friends and family members who are near and dear to you and your partner. Their role is to uplift and support you and your partner during the wedding process and ceremony. We understand that asking your closest friends to be your bridesmaids can be a sentimental and emotional event. Believe it or not, bridesmaid proposals are starting to become a more thought-through and creative task in the wedding planning timeline. Sure an email, phone call, or text message can relay the message, but will it capture the importance and sentiments of the honor? For this reason, Minted has a unique selection of bridesmaids proposal cards to make your bridal party feel loved and ready for the big day. We’ll walk you through how to create the perfect personalized bridesmaid proposals.
A CLOSER LOOK
Minted’s bridesmaid proposal cards come in a variety of colors, designs, and finishes. Each card measures 7” x 5” and folds open to reveal a sentimental message inside. Personalize a card design that speaks to you and leave some blank space in the formatting to include personal hand-written messages to each bridesmaid. Or you could opt to create completely different cards for each bridesmaid based on their personality! Minted provides you the option to place a card order anywhere between 1-25 so that you can accommodate every bridesmaid in your group. A complimentary envelope is also included with each bridesmaid card should you wish to hand-deliver or mail your correspondence.
CREATIVE BRIDESMAID PROPOSAL WORDING
Now that you’ve picked your card, it’s time to write a message to your closest friends. When crafting a message to your bridesmaids, it’s important to reflect on the relationship you share. Jot down your favorite memories, funny stories, and reminisce about times when your bridesmaid was really there for you. Focus on the reasons why you are asking them to play such a big role in your wedding. During the card personalization steps you will have the option to leave your card blank inside for personally composed messaging or have Minted print a greeting for you.
Here are some clever phrases to get you started:
- “I do, do you?”
- “Welcome to the Bride Squad”
- “You’re on Team Bride”
- “Join the (Bridal) Party!”
- “I want you in the bride tribe!”
- “I want you to hold some flowers at my wedding!”
ADD YOUR PERSONAL TOUCH
Let’s dive into the customizations that will make your bridesmaids proposal cards uniquely yours. From changing color palettes and printing each bridesmaid’s name on your card to featuring a photo collage or sentimental photo-stamp, we provide plenty of options to express your creativity.
Color scheme: Minted offers a host of unique colors that a design can be transformed into instantly. With ink colors like ivory, peppermint, and blush, you can assure that your card has a differentiated and distinguished glow. Adjust the color filters on our site and the design preview will update accordingly.
Text adjustments: Play with word placement and explore font styling and sizes. Edit text boxes to include your personal sentiments or list out the name of every bridesmaid that makes up your “bride tribe”. Wish to include more detailed anecdotes about your friendship? Our templates allow you to compose paragraphs of text with ease. If you choose to personalize a card for every bridesmaid, you could have their name highlighted on the front of the card to achieve a bold and meaningful first impression.
Include personal imagery: Dig through your photo library to pull out some of your favorite images with your best friends. Maybe it is a team photo from your days of childhood soccer or a group vacation spent on the lake. We provide numerous templates that will transform the two inside panels of your card into a visual interaction. Display a combination of up to six images to feature alongside text.
Personalize the card backing: Just like a good story has a beginning, middle, and end, so too can your card’s design. Choose to have a pattern printed on the back of your card that corresponds with colors and stylings found elsewhere on your correspondence. If you wish to include additional photos on the back of your card celebrating your friendship, that can also be accommodated.
Envelope enhancements: You would be surprised at the effect a black envelope with white scripted lettering can have on a recipient. While each card includes a complimentary white envelope, you can opt to upgrade to a colored envelope for a dramatic and unforgettable presentation. Choose from envelope colors such as cloud blue, antique rose, and spruce to name a few. Spark their curiosity from the onset with an envelope that stands out in the mailbox! Complete the look by selecting Minted’s free recipient addressing service. Simply select an address styling from dozens of options and Minted will print your recipient’s name and address on the envelope for you.
Custom stamps: You may not normally splurge on customized stamps, but how often will you send a group of your best friends a personalized message in the mail? Why not make it count with a themed stamp that may hint at the wedding couple’s initials, wedding date, or venue location? Or, you can choose a photo or symbol that is meaningful to you and your bridal party. Reflect on special moments, funny stories, and shared experiences and choose imagery that symbolizes the bond you have with your bridal party.
A Minted design associate will work directly with you to ensure your design customizations are fulfilled exactly as you had envisioned. You will be sent digital proofs to review along the way and cards will not be printed until you provide your final approval. During the card personalization process feel free to use our chat tools or reach out to a design associate by clicking on the “Design Requests” field and providing your detailed requests.
GO THE EXTRA MILE
In addition to a sweet personalized card, consider creating a bridesmaid proposal kit. Adding a keepsake like an art print that reminds you of them or a pretty personalized clutch or tote bag elevates your proposal and shows your bridal party how much you truly appreciate them. Including a gift like matching charm necklaces or a framed photo of your favorite moment with your bridesmaids can create a long-lasting memory of your special bond.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT MINTED
Since April, 2008 Minted has hosted at least one design competition on our website each month. Fast forward to present day and we currently are running an assortment of contests to collect designs for framed wall art, holiday cards, birth announcements, and other products sold across our site. Our contests encourage independent artists across the globe to submit their unique designs into our public competitions.

This formula for crowdsourcing popular designs has helped keep Minted’s offerings some of the freshest and most diverse found on the internet. As our customers purchase their save the dates or will you be my bridesmaid cards, a portion of each sale is then given back to the contributing artists which helps fuel the independent artists community.
