Having a female groomsman in your wedding party? Use these ideas for a groomswoman proposal box! Your pal will love the thought that you put into creating her groomswoman gift.
Soon after I said "yes" to my fiancé's sweet proposal, I got into major crafting mode. I wanted to make proposal boxes not only for my for my bridesmaids and maid of honor—but also for our best man, groomsmen, lady groomsman, and flower girls.
Now, I'm going to talk about how I made a female groomsman gift as unique as our female groomsman, Tara. There are no bow ties or cigar cutters in this gift box!
Ideas for Groomswoman Gifts
Here's what Tara's female groomsman proposal box ended up looking like! If you're looking to put together something similar, I hope my run through of the box's contents are helpful.
Tara's proposal box is from the same photo box collection from Michael’s that I used to create the other wedding party proposals. Because Tara is more into goth than pastel colors, I picked out a black floral box for her.
Buy it: Memory box
I used the same groomsman proposal stickers that my fiancé and I used for the groomsman proposal boxes. For Tara's, we did a little cutting and pasting to turn the word "groomsman" into "groomswoman."
I bought a large pack of tissue paper and used several sheets as a base for the box.
Buy it: tissue paper
Mini Zen Garden
Tara loves quirky gifts, and she was about to move at the time that we asked her to be in our wedding. So she definitely needed some zen!

Diamond Lip Gloss
Tara got the same adorable diamond lip gloss I gifted to my bridesmaids.

I love these individualized female groomsmen bracelets! I purchased Tara's from Etsy, but I've seen similar ones on Amazon. Plus, we figured Tara could wear the bracelet while walking down the aisle on our wedding day (if she wants, of course)!
Buy it: tie-the-knot bracelet
Mini Champagne & Paper Straws
We picked up the little champagne bottle from a local liquor store and paired it with a couple of pretty paper straws.
Buy it: paper straws
Ring Pops, Hershey's Kisses, and Hershey's Hugs
I had made DIY engagement favors for our engagement party, so each wedding party member received a bag of candy (with a Ring Pop!) with the proposal box. Find out how we had an engagement party on a budget.

More Female Proposal Ideas
All in all, the proposal box cost less than $35. That's price isn't bad at all for asking a best pal to be your female groomsman on your big day!

By the way, Lawrence and I discussed whether we could invite Tara to the bachelorette party as well as the bachelor party, since she's also my friend.
The answer: Of course! We also talked about whether a suit or a dress would be most appropriate for the wedding. But we decided Tara would much rather wear a dress!
