Last December, on our 9th anniversary, my fiance’ proposed. I had every intention on waiting a couple months to ask our wedding party, but while we were on our Christmas vacation in Chicago, I found the perfect gift to ask my best friend to be my MOH.
We were walking around, looking for the Hershy’s store, however, to our surprise, it was closed! In it’s spot stood a Sugarfina, which, is a very fancy candy store. We (at the time) didn’t have a location here in Seattle, but their candy is sold in some of our fancier grocery stores. We popped in, mostly because it was freezing cold and our Uber was still 15 minutes away.
I walked straight to the left corner, and right there on the shelf was the cutest candy set ever. An adorable box set, with some of their tastiest candies, and each cube of candy had writing on it.
The first cube said “Will You”
The second “Be My”
The third “Maid of Honor?”
Of course we’re going to choose to overlook the minor detail that she technically is a matron of honor, because she and her husband got Married in 2017, simply because the boxset was so cute! As soon as I saw it I looked right at Mitchell and said “I have to get
this for her!” I wrapped the boxset up and the plan was to give it to her for Christmas. We went to her mom’s house for Christmas dinner, and I placed it under the tree.
She unwrapped it, and stared at it for a couple seconds, I think she was first in awe of the box set, the cute candies, and also probably confused as to why this gift was just from me and why I chose just candy. She looked at me and said “did you buy it in Chicago?” Then I think it hit her, that it was asking her to be my maid of honor. Some tears were shed, and of course she said yes. We talked for a while that night about the adventure we went on and how excited I was to find those candies.
If you’re looking to propose to your MOH and would like to buy these cute gift boxes, you can find them at your local store, or online by visiting the Sugarfina Website. The colors for this years boxes are slightly different, but it’s the same boxset! They’re such a cute idea! Their candies are incredibly delicious, and they offer candies that are vegan! I highly recommend checking them out if you’re able to!
Of course, if you know me, you know the “proposal” didn’t stop there. I also made her a gift box a few weeks later. I’ll save that for another post though 🙂
Are you recently engaged? Married? How did you ask your wedding party to be in your wedding? I’d love to see/hear other stories!
