These days it’s all about the proposal—even when you’re the bride-to-be. After you announce your engagement, your friends—whether they make it known or not—are expecting a proposal of their own. A simple phone call or message asking them to be a bridesmaid is no longer enough. Some brides go to extreme lengths to send flowers and packages asking for their involvement. Florida-based Teak & Twine has designed a box fitting for the occasion. The spa-inspired Bridesmaid box ($88), for example, includes sweets, clay soap, lip balm, a bath fizzie and nail polish. Order one or make your own.
