When did bridesmaid proposals become a thing? It only JUST started getting popular, no? Like within the last couple of years? None of my friends got "proposed" to by their brides. I never got "proposed" to be when I was a bridesmaid. I only know about this because I do have some younger friends on Facebook that posted their goodies from their bridesmaid proposals. I asked my friends & sisters through the phone since I don't live near any of them. I never planned on doing anything creative to ask them. They pretty much knew it was coming anyway. BUT one of my sisters pretty much demanded today when I was going to "officially" ask her to be a bridesmaid with a "goodie bag". I told her that was just a trend, not a requirement. She said "it's not a trend. It's a nice thing people do". I get that she's younger and I bet a lot of her friends are getting one, but that is just NOT my kind of thing! I just plan on doing gifts on the wedding day! I'm just annoyed; rant is over, thanks for listening Not even sure what else to tell her. BTW, my other sister (who is even younger) says she just feels honored & excited. I told her that's how you're supposed to feel! You're not supposed to feel entitled to certain things..
