Ah Bridesmaids – in the context of a Singaporean wedding, it wouldn’t be possible (and, face it, much less fun!) if we didn’t have our dear bridesmaids to help us on the Big Day!

As you will be spending a lot of time together before and during the wedding day, it’s a sweet and thoughtful gesture to surprise your besties with a thoughtful invitation and gift.
Over here at TWW, our editor L shares her tips on how she came up with the theme of her Bridesmaid Box.
Step 1: Find the perfect bridesmaid dress
This was the difficult part! There are simply so many choices of online blogshops in Singapore, and L knew she wanted dresses which were not just the regular convertible dresses. Yet here comes the difficult part – dresses with sizes sometimes ran out of stock in certain sizes! Throw in the added challenge of wanting bridesmaid dresses to match her wedding theme and it was a massive task at hand!
Thankfully, after numerous hunting, L found The Velvet Doll’s Bridesmaid Collection (https://www.thevelvetdolls.sg/collections/bridesmaids/) which came in a large range of sizes and on backorder!
*Tip: Do start bridesmaid dress hunting early, at least 3 months before your wedding to allow for ordering time, especially if you have a large bridal party.

Step 2: Personalised accessories
Depending on the theme also of your box, you would want to keep the theme of the entire box coherent. For L, she decided on a blush and glitter-themed bridesmaid box hence accessories would need to match up!
Who said personalised and thoughtful presents need to cost an arm and a leg? The amazing glittery notebook was found in Daiso and personalised with stencils from Spotlight! Use your creativity – your besties would definitely appreciate the thought and effort you put into the Bridesmaid Box.
Step 3: The Finishing Touch – Bridesmaid Proposal Card
What would a gift be without a beautiful card and a handwritten note? Here’s when Miraculove.com (https://miraculove.com/shop/bridesmaid-card), which has the most beautiful and elegant bridesmaid cards for every occasion, comes in!
L had 8 bridesmaids and Miraculove’s Girlsquad Bridesmaid Invitation Cards (https://miraculove.com/set/Girlsquad-Bridesmaid-Invitation-Cards-(4-Designs)) were absolutely perfect for the theme.

The cards were even more gorgeous in real life! They were so beautifully illustrated with a silvery finish and added a certain finesse to the Bridesmaid Box.
L’s own bridesmaid box
The Bridesmaid Box is getting more popular in recent years and we can totally understand why!
Did it take a lot of time to plan and prepare the bridesmaid boxes? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely – especially after seeing the happy faces on your besties’ faces! After all, happy bridesmaids mean a happy bride when it matters to most.
