No matter what stage of wedding planning you’re in, one of the most fun parts of the process is getting to invite all of your besties to be your bridesmaids! Surely you’ve already narrowed down your list of maids, chosen your MOH, selected your bridesmaid proposal cards, and started to think about the amazing bridal party gifts you’re going to buy them.
But there’s someone else you need to think about:
Your flower girl!
Proposing to your bridesmaids is a lot of fun, but asking your flower girl (or girls) to be a part of your wedding party is something truly special!
Not sure how to pull it off? Here are the seven cutest flower girl proposal ideas to make an impression on your favorite little lady.
1. Give Her Flowers
The best flower girl proposal gift is the gift of flowers. It only makes sense!
A pretty bouquet with a card that says Will you be my flower girl? is the perfect proposal gift. Proposing to her in person is ideal because it’s an excuse to get to see your favorite little one!
But if you can’t see her face to face, have a fresh, colorful bouquet shipped to her door. She’ll love getting a surprise gift in the mail.

2. Confetti Poppers
Confetti poppers are a great way to get your favorite little girl excited for your wedding day. And when the outside of the canister says Be my flower girl, she’ll be that much more excited to say yes.
Confetti poppers come in all sorts of colors and can be customized with personalized labels.
If you can’t be there to supervise the popping, be sure that her mom or dad is there to help her.
3. A Piece of Jewelry
Little girls (and big girls for that matter) love jewelry. You simply cannot go wrong proposing to your flower girl with a shiny bracelet, a rhinestone hair clip, sparkling earrings, or a pretty rose gold pendant necklace.
Either way, she’ll have a keepsake that she can treasure forever.
Just wrap it in pretty paper and be sure to include a card or note that asks her to be your flower girl. Otherwise, she may think it’s just another FABULOUS gift from her favorite aunt, cousin, or mom’s best friend.
Jewelry isn’t just ideal for the proposal — it also makes a great flower girl gift to give her on the day of or the night before the wedding day.
4. Stuffed Animal
For a young flower girl, a stuffed animal is one of the cutest and most age-appropriate proposal gifts. Whether it’s a classic teddy bear or a fluffy stuffed unicorn, a fuzzy toy is sure to win her heart and make her jump with little girl joy.
Make it even more special by dressing your animal of choice in a customized T-shirt that reads Flower girl or Will you be in my bridal party?.
5. Personalized Pillows
For the slightly older girl who’s more into room décor than stuffed animals, a personalized pillow makes an awesome flower girl proposal gift.
This is one of our favorite gift ideas, simply for the fact that you can customize a pillow in endless ways. Whether she’s an edgy eight-year-old with a love for classic rock or a glitzy girl that lives for sequins and glitter, you can order a custom pillow on Etsy that includes her name or the words Flower girl in her particular style.
If you can dream it, some artist on Etsy can make it!
6. Personalized Goodie Bag
Who doesn’t love a goodie bag? The answer is no one!
Buy a tote bag that says Flower girl on it and DIY your own proposal gift by filling it with all sorts of things you know she’ll love.
Toss in hair ties, hair ribbons, lip balms, and a compact mirror. Add a pair of personalized monogram flip flops, beaded bracelets, bubbles, and colorful stickers or art supplies. If she’s on the younger side, include a few coloring books and crayons.
No matter her age or style, this gift offers lots of flexibility. You can fill it with things that she can use as soon as you propose, or fill it with things that she can use on your wedding day.
Either way, it’s sure to be a winner.
7. Flower Girl Proposal Gift Box
A flower girl gift box that includes an assortment of fun gifts is perfect for any little lady, including junior bridesmaids.
There are tons of these on Etsy that include all sorts of cool items, such as tumblers, T-shirts, tote bags, hair ties, and other things she’s sure to love.
Don’t want to buy a pre-assembled gift? Just like the goodie bag, you can DIY a gift set just by wrapping a little box in pretty paper, filling it with all sorts of fun items, and topping it off with a pretty bow!

Propose to Your Ring Bearer, Too!
Need some cool ideas on how to invite your favorite little man into your wedding party?
There are lots of easy, fun, and inexpensive ways to propose to your ring bearer.
If he’s into sports, ask him to be a part of your wedding day with a personalized baseball bat, basketball, or soccer ball.
Is he into puzzles and games? Gift him with a jigsaw puzzle that, when assembled, reads Will you be my ring bearer?.
We also love the idea of giving him something that he can wear on the day of the wedding. It could be a tie that matches the ones the groomsmen will wear or something selected just for him, like a pair of shoes that will put the perfect finishing touch on his wedding day look.
These proposal ideas also make for great ring bearer gifts that you can give him the morning of the wedding or the night before the big day.
Let’s be honest:
Your maid of honor and best man probably think they’re going to be the stars of the show (with the exception of you and your beloved, of course).
But we all know that’s not the case. The members of the bridal party who always get the most oohs and awws at the ceremony are the flower girl and ring bearer.
We totally get that your bachelorette party and bridal shower are the pre-wedding events you're looking forward to the most. But proposing to your flower girl in a special way just might be the standout moment that you remember for a lifetime.
So, make it a special one with a special gift that both of you will treasure always and forever!
