When should brides-to-be ask people to be their Bridesmaid?
The best time to ask your friends and family members to be your bridesmaids is anywhere between a year to eight months before your wedding. That will give them enough time to plan the hen party and get their dresses sorted. They may want to try and a lose a few pounds first or even change their hairstyle. So giving them plenty of notice to get these thing sorted is ideal.

Sending A Card
Sending a card in the post is a nice surprise why to ask your friends and/or family if they will be your bridesmaid? There are so many cards to choose from whether it’s a funny card or a cute one.
A Balloon In A Box
I personally love this idea. You can send this surprise to their work or home. Which either you think they would prefer.
There are some beautiful options out, including this one from amazon.
Take Them Out
Simply ask them out for a coffee, and pop the question then.
If you really want to send a gift, you could always do it in reserve order.
First ask your friend or family the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?” Then send them a thank you gift.
Whatever why you decide to ask your future bridesmaids, just enjoy it.
