Pop The Question with FabFitFun

Will you be my maid of honor? I remember "popping the question" to my best friend almost as vividly as when my fiancé got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I couldn't have been more excited to get ready for my wedding day with 5 of my closest girlfriends standing by my side. However, popping that question was a bigger struggle than I could have imagined. I wanted to create the perfect bridesmaid proposal with personalized gifts for my bridesmaids and maid of honor - I'd seen cute ideas all over Instagram, most of them were boxes full of personalized products that, honestly, just felt useless. Who really needs a t-shirt with the word "bridesmaid" across the chest in a trendy, modern calligraphy font that you'll only wear once? I wanted to give them a gift that they would be able to find useful in their everyday lives, but also not break the bank. The day I saw my FabFitFun box arrive to my doorstep I realized that it was the unique bridesmaid gift I had been searching for. So, before asking them to be in the wedding, I invited everyone over and gifted each of them a subscription to FabFitFun. Personally, FabFitFun is my favorite subscription box because it delivers quarterly vs. monthly so I never feel like I'm wasting money or precious shelf space and has the best beauty and fashion products for women, so I always feel ahead of the curve for the season ahead!

I started subscribing to FabFitFun just before I got engaged as a way to help me start looking and feeling my best in the months leading up to the wedding. At the start of each season, FabFitFun finds the absolute best in women's fashion, wellness, fitness, and beauty products, and then delivers you 8-10 full-sized products right to your doorstep - all for only $50 (if you add up the value of the products inside it's always well over $200!). I absolutely loved the first box I ever received. Not only are the box designs super cute, but I was surprised by how high-quality the items inside were. I got an oxygenating face mask from GlamGlow, amazing smelling shower gel from Skin & Co, CYLO bluetooth earbuds that are perfect for working out, and a Vince Camuto tote—and that wasn't even the entire box! I was so busy wedding planning, that I really appreciated how easily I could fit in much-needed “me" time (without leaving the house!), whether it's working out, de-stressing, or keeping my wardrobe up to snuff.

The night that all 5 of my girls came over, I told them I just wanted to have a girls night in - enjoy a nice red and have a mini spa session. They had no clue I was popping the question. I had put each of their boxes at a seat at the kitchen table with a notecard with their names on top (with my not-so-great modern calligraphy handwriting - but hey I needed practice for my wedding invites). Inside every box was another note from me asking them to stand by me on the big day. You should have seen the look on their faces when they saw these 5 MASSIVE FabFitFun boxes waiting for them - I knew they were going to love them. Not only were we all already psyched for our girls night, but no one could believe how incredible the FabFitFun products were and they were crying with joy that they were my “chosen ones". The boxes ended up actually helping get our girls night started. We used our new BLAQ eye masks and Oribe hair products during our mini spa sesh and cuddled in the Mark and Graham throw blanket as we watched - you guessed it - Bridesmaids.

Thanks to FabFitFun, I'm even more excited to spend time with my favorite people in the months leading up to the wedding. And I know that my friends really appreciated the effort I put in to including them—because we all know that brides are busy and bridesmaids often step in to save the day. So, if you're in the midst of planning a wedding, don't forget to take some time for you AND your bridesmaids, and give them a gift they won't forget.
