A Yes Girl Bridal Shower

Think glam, vintage, and fashion. Imagine feathers, sparkle, and pretty red martinis. Peacock blues, silvers, grays, whites, blacks, with a pop of red was our muse. When we sat down to envision Kendall’s bridal shower, we knew it had to be uniquely Kendall. She can pull off any style, trend, and hair-do so we had various designs to weed through; I believe the ambience of old Hollywood complemented by Kendall’s silver sequined dress, red lips, and peacock hair clip was very “Kendall” and just so much fun!

All the guests wore their favorite black dress and enjoyed yummy passed hors d’oeuvres. We recruited Kendall’s brothers to pass the appetizers and bar tend (which was a personal but also budget-friendly touch). Red flowers and red flavored cocktails were used to bring in the subtle pop of red. For another fun DIY, Lindsay and I made small peacock hair clips for all her bridesmaids. One of her talented bridesmaids, Amber from Bambu Earth, created monogramed and handmade organic soaps for the favors which smell delectable.

Besides the dessert table adorned with a glamorous cake, cake pops, fudge and candies, one of my favorite things was the guestbook. Guests were asked to write what made Tommy and Kendall such a fabulous couple in a book with Hollywood’s best movie couples. It was one fun shower and more importantly, another memory to add to Kendall and Tommy’s marriage and future.

Using Your Senses (All 5), When You Propose

I find it amazing how our humanly senses not only allow us to perceive beauty but how we can immediately transfer to a past memory when we smell a certain fragrance or hear a line from a song. It really is incredible especially when it’s attached to an unparalleled memory. We girls dream of how we’ll get engaged. Take it from someone whose been proposed to, we love reminiscing exactly how our heart dropped and where we were standing when we said “yes!” Ladies, I recommend passing this onto the special guys in your life.

Guys, to help your sweetheart remember all of your marriage proposal, why not incorporate items that adhere to all her senses? It makes sense right? Here are some things you can do to tap into all five senses.

Sight

A beautiful marriage proposal scene is always a perfect way to start. Filling the area with pretty things- flowers, lights, photos, candles, etc. really makes it look and feel like a dream. Believe it or not, she will remember what you’re wearing. Spend a little extra time putting on a spiffy new shirt or tie that color coordinates with your proposal setting; it will be another eye-catcher. Photo books or framing a favorite picture is the best way to connect to her sense of sight. Another way is to hire a photographer to capture you down on one knee. That’s delivering her the memory on a silver platter. She’ll have the photos forever.

Smell

One of our strongest senses! There are so many options from the smell of the flowers and food, to the cologne you wear. If you’re girlfriends love lavender or lilies those both have distinct smells.

Hearing

Play a sweet new tune that can represent this moment. There are so many beautiful songs out there. One of my favorites right now is Marry Me by Train. It’s worth having a song you purposely chose to take her back to the moment you got down on one knee and became her husband-to-be.

Taste

Serve her favorite meal and pair it with a flavorful bottle of wine. Now every time she opens and tastes that type of wine the flavor will undoubtedly bring her back to your engagement. For an extra smooth touch, you can pick up a few bottles and let them age as you save them for future wedding anniversaries such as your 1st, 5th, and 20th. Talk about romantic!

Touch

When you begin your proposal speech, take her hand. She’ll get butterflies. For an extra touch, no pun intended, dance with her. She ain’t going to forget that!

Now you already have 5 personal and thoughtful items to add to your marriage proposal. If you have any items to add to the senses above feel free to comment below!

Flash Mob Proposal

We are dying to do a flash mob proposal. I came across one of the best flash mobs I’ve ever seen in Seattle; I was trying to find one for my mom’s birthday today!! No luck in Park City mom, but I’ll find one for us to do soon! Luckily the search wasn’t a total waste when I came across the “glee inspired” flash mob and could only imagine how amazing a marriage proposal would have been to top off the crowds excitement. Then I came across the second flash mob that was sweet and unique, and I just want to mesh the two together for the perfect flash mob proposal. Seriously, we need to do one asap! Any takers?!!

Get your “gleek” on! Happy Birthday Mom!!!
