1. Ask them in person
After you've told both sets of parents and immediate family members, your closest friends should be the next to know (before Facebook and the rest of the world does). While you're sharing the good news, don't forget to ask your girls whether they'd like to become a part of your wedding party too! (See tips on choosing your bridesmaids here.)

2. With a prettily made card
Even if you've gotten verbal confirmation, a sweet handwritten card won't hurt either!

3. Gift boxes with bridesmaid duty essentials
The contents in these boxes really depend on your budget - if you've got a smaller one, a few of their favourite snacks and a card will suffice. But if you're looking to impress, I've seen brides give boxes containing mini bottles of champagne, confetti, bridal robes and so on. That said, I wouldn't recommend you spend too much on these. If you really want to thank them, gifts for them on the day of is fine, too. See also frequently asked questions on choosing your wedding party, dresses, and more.
