A Beautiful Timeline Marriage Proposal

Today I am delighted to feature a sweet marriage proposal that involved the guy remembering dates such as their first kiss and saying “I Love You.” Yes, that’s right the guy remembered those dates! I jotted down some thoughts below for any guys who want to take notes on how this proposer (yeah just made up a word) did it right!

1. He remembered ALL those dates! If you don’t remember specifics bring up memories your girlfriend would enjoy reminiscing. Ask her BFF to bring it up in conversation it will be too obvious you’re digging for information for your proposal.

2. He had a plan! The entire proposal choreographed down to the very last step.

3. He broke out in dance when she said “yes!” I’m not saying every guy to get up and dance for his proposal but you have to give this guy credit for stepping out of his comfort zone. I would bet he didn’t dance for the glory but rather for her. Try throwing in a fun-loving finale like this one.

4. He involved her family and friends in a thoughtful way. Not all guys feel comfortable proposing in front of her family and friends, which is totally understandable, but finding a way to incorporate the ones she loves most is always a go. If it’s important for certain people to be involved really adhere to it.

5. This is a biggie! He had someone capture the proposal on film!!

We Say Yes Wednesday

This week we are saying “Yes” to how you present the ring when you pop the question. Below I am going to share some fun pictures of how to present the ring. The one thing we always say no to though is food! Besides that, add that final special touch and take the ring out of the box and add it to something special to her. Unless the box has a cool light up feature :)

5 Tips to Spruce Up Your Wedding Anniversary + Gifts

If you are stuck and wondering just what to do for your upcoming anniversary here are a few helpful pointers from The Yes Girls to get you started.

1. Give the wedding anniversary gift or trip the presentation it deserves. Don’t just tell your spouse that you are going somewhere for your anniversary. Use a prop, video or leave a printed itinerary somewhere they wouldn’t expect to find it. It makes the “giving” of the present much more fun and exciting for you too! 

2. Pay attention and listen closely! As it starts to get closer to your wedding anniversary put on your listening ears. See if your spouse mentions something s/he wants or somewhere they want to go. Perhaps you notice they are weighed down by cleaning, yard work or piles of laundry? Part of your gift can be giving your spouse more free time and having someone take care of that chore for him/her.

3. Plan well. If your spouse has a busy weekend with your kids schedules or a significant project at work don’t plan a night/weekend to celebrate during that “busyness”; they won’t be present or able to enjoy the anniversary. Even if your wedding anniversary passes, give a thoughtful card on the day of, and celebrate at a time that works best for you both.

4. If you’re in charge of planning the wedding anniversary this year, add in a surprise that’s specific to what your spouse would appreciate (ie: broadway show, a facial, horseback ride, etc); lovingly participate without any complaints. However, since it’s celebration of your marriage, also plan activities you love to do together!

5. Never pretend you forgot your wedding anniversary to pull off a better surprise. This will get you nowhere, especially with women.

 

 

 

 

Looking for an awesome wedding anniversary gift?

Here are a few gift ideas we put together that incorporate the traditional element with a modern twist.

1ST WEDDING ANNIVERSARY: PAPER

It’s said that paper represents the interlaced threads that make paper one. Here are some 1st anniversary gift ideas. Put together a photo book of the honeymoon or post notes around the house that you love and appreciate about your spouse. The notes can led her/him to a special date that includes toasting with your wedding champagne flutes and eating the top layer of your wedding cake. If you didn’t save it, just order a mini cake with the same frosting and filling. You can even set this up in your own backyard!

5TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY: WOOD

Plan a romantic outdoor picnic in the park/woods to celebrate the strength of your relationship. Hang photos and words that represent your first 5 years of marriage together from a tree and set up your picnic beneath. For an extra touch, hang the photos and words in wooden frames.

10TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY: TIN

Traditionally speaking this is considered your first milestone wedding anniversary. The tin represents a ten year marriage that “can bend and be flexible, but will not break.” If you are taking a trip this year, you could present the plane tickets, small items you’ll need for your vacation, and breakfast in bed on a beautiful tin tray. For an added touch engrave her favorite Bible verse, your wedding vows, or quote on the tin tray.

30TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY: PEARL (DIAMOND)

Need a vacation? The pearl is the perfect gift to present your exotic vacation to Bora Bora, Australia, Hawaii, etc. Grab snorkeling gear and leave pearl earrings or a pearl cuff links inside the goggles. It’s time for you to go pearl diving (or maybe just snorkeling) and the beach is calling your names. If you aren’t into the pearl, nowadays couples will give diamonds for their 30th anniversary, which is a pretty easy gift to give to any woman!

A warm thank you to Many Hats Mommy for featuring The Yes Girls! Picnic photo above from Such Pretty Things.

Monday “Rocks”!

Happy Monday! When do the weekends ever slow down… I think three day weekends should be implemented?! Maybe one day :) Here are my engagement ring picks for this week…

Simon G Jewelry. This round cut diamond is surrounded by a halo of pave diamonds. The band is double shanked with a unique detail of linking the base of the band with the center stone- interlocking the whole piece. Love it!

Knox Jewelers. Cushion cut engagement ring coated with pave diamonds with a split shank band. The side view of this piece has creative detail and a unique design- just beautiful!

MiaDonna & Co. Princess cut stone in the center of a frame of diamonds. The band is double lined with many smaller diamonds. I’m pretty sure it’s just editing, but the shine of the ring makes it that more appealing :)

I hope you have enjoyed my engagement ring picks and I look forward to seeing you all next Monday! Have a great week!
