He got down on one knee, presented you with the most beautiful ring you’ve ever seen, popped the question, and you said yes…
You’re engaged! Congratulations!
It’s time to gather your nearest and dearest friends to ask them a very important question!
“Will you stand with me on my special day?”
You probably already know the answer to that (a resounding ‘yes!’, with a healthy dose of ‘happy tears’!), but why not make it an even more memorable moment for her? Putting together a ‘wedding party proposal’ when asking your besties to join in on your special day is a tried-and-true tradition, and has become even more popular in the rise of social media. Sharing the good news via Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Snapchat is the new version of the ‘family newsletter’, and gifting her a snap-worthy present to share is the cherry on top.
There are many ways to ask, and with my partner company, the amazing Weddingstar, we have a few ideas to share, whatever your budget. There has never been an easier, or more personal way to show the ones you love how much you care.
Whether your budget is modest, mid-range, or splashy and all out, we have you covered with several options and price points, and we promise – none lack in style and grace.
Let’s get started!
THE MINI PROPOSAL
ASK HER WITH… A WEDDING-WORTHY WINE
Adorn a mini or full-sized bottle of wine with an oversized, romantic bow, personalized tag, and trinkets of your choosing
‘I DO’ Mini, available at Intrigue Wines and supporting retailers
Before you begin this tutorial, you will need one thing – the perfect wine or champagne! We chose our favourite ‘wedding-worthy’ wine, the ‘I Do’ Sparkling Rosé from Intrigue Wines, located in the heart of the Okanagan’s own Lake Country, B.C. This special wine is a local favourite for weddings, anniversaries, and proposals, thanks to it’s on-point packaging featuring a heart-encircled, ‘I Do’ logo. It comes in two sizes, a convenient single serving bottle (ideal for handing out to the ladies the morning of, as well!), and a full-sized bottle for sharing. This frizzante style wine holds notes of orchard peach and apple, with a crisp acidity to the palate, and a merlot-like body. In other words, the most exceptional wine to sip on a sunny afternoon picnic with the girls.

Favour tags come in handy with any bridal party proposal. Here are a few of our favourites, though there are many (many!) more styles available to suit any bride’s taste.
