Eva Longoria Engagement Ring

Not only do Eva Longoria and Tony Parker seem like a genuinely sweet couple together, but Eva has quite the ring to represent their love. An emerald cut diamond is always a gorgeous choice for a center stone, and the three stone setting just adds a touch of elegance. Although Eva’s is a 5 carat diamond (yes, five!) and typically out of many folks budgets, it is still a beautiful setting to take to your jeweler if you and/or your soon to be fiancé are customizing your engagement ring.

What are your favorite settings and diamond cuts?

On a side note, I am getting our new puppy today (ahhhh so excited) and The Yes Girls are attending and coordinating a proposal this weekend (can’t wait to share it!) so today’s blog will remain short and sweet! I would love to hear feedback on your ideal ring setting!

We Say “Yes” Wednesday: Handmade Weddings

Today we are very lucky to have a guest blogger, Amber of Bambu Earth. She not only makes amazing handcrafted soap and beauty care, but she can also whip up pretty much any necklace or article of clothing you need. She is in the process of helping design my Save the Dates with her 100th talent, graphic design. Enjoy what she has to say about Handmade Weddings!

This is your day. Skip the sea of uniform, unimaginative wedding favors and bridal accessories, and choose wedding details that are as special as you are. I’ve put together a collection of some of my favorite handcrafted items for your special day. Having handmade items at your wedding doesn’t mean you have to skip on quality or elegance.

A Top Gun Proposal

Anytime a guy combines a classic movie like Top Gun and men in uniform something good is bound to happen. I saw this proposal and just thought is was so sweet. It definitely had the element of surprise and what a perfect fit for a couple about to start military life together. This just goes to show one doesn’t need thousands of dollars to pull off a sentimental, creative proposal. Not all public proposals are deemed romantic but this was adorable and she looks truly happy! Such a great video.

Best of luck you two! And of course, with the military being a part of my life, I have to thank all the men/women and their families who serve.

A Duet Proposal

It was so apparent that Mark and Lila had this deep connection, especially when it came to creating their music. Mark’s proposal embodied that connection and it was blissfully romantic. He definitely gave Lila a healthy serving of surprise!

Mark planned a little surprise that would take place during Lila’s next singing gig in Portland, Oregon. He made a few phone calls to make sure her family and friends would be in the crowd. One of their friends encouraged Lila to sing one of Mark and her original songs, even though Mark “supposedly” could not attend due to long distance. Onstage, half way through her song, the spotlights turned, shining on Mark as he walked on stage (dressed to the nines) and finish singing the duet with her! With a cheering crowd, they quickly took in their applause and he whisked her off stage into the backstage dressing room.

The dressing room was filled with her favorite pink flowers, champagne, dessert, and post it notes with reasons why he loves her. Lila is infamous for leaving sweet post it notes around his house so he thoughtfully returned the favor.  In the center of the decked out room was a photo/story book with all the reasons Mark wanted to marry Lila. She was so stunned, not only by the surprise visit but also receiving an unexpected proposal! For icing on the cake, Lila didn’t realize her family and friends were in the audience to celebrate their engagement! I just love everything about this proposal story!
