Featured: Lip Dub Proposal

One of our preferred jewelers, Do Amore, recently got to “practice what he preaches.” He bought one of his own engagement rings! Krish proposed to his beautiful fiancée, Shipra, by incorporating some of her favorite things- dancing, fairytales, close friends, and delicious food which ended in a stunning rose gold engagement ring! What’s amazing about Do Amore is not only their engagement rings but every ring sold gives two people clean water for their lifetime. We couldn’t be more excited for the newly engaged couple and how his company is changing lives for the better. Check out their sweet proposal video below! We hope your day is full of love!

Engagement Ring Lights Up When Fiancé Is Near

I have seen engagement ring boxes that light up or proposals center around “you’re the light of my life” but this is a first. Ben Kokes, who is clearly quite the engineer, created a device that signals his fiancée’s ring to light up when he is near! He intended just to use it during his marriage proposal in San Francisco and pick out a ring the follow day together but she loved it so much, she is still rocking her LED light up engagement ring.

What do you think?! Bravo for the originality or some traditions, like a diamond engagement ring, are kept traditional for a reason?

Featured Post: Places To Propose at The ARIA In Vegas

One of my favorite things is discovering the most romantic and even the unexpected places to pop the question! With Fourth of July just around the corner, many of you are preparing yourself for an upcoming holiday proposal. Today we have a guest blog from our friends at Aria who gave us insight into their favorite spots for an engagement or even a wedding anniversary.

Trying to plan the perfect proposal is certainly a tricky process, and many people spend months and months just trying to think of a good idea. Many find, however, that the best place to start is with a fitting location. Once you figure out a place where you’d like to propose, you can start to plan the actual event, and organize something truly special. And why not start with a special and glamorous location? Consider, for example, a “destination proposal” in fabulous Las Vegas at a luxury hotel such as the ARIA.

 

Vegas is a place for fun, relaxation, and love, and as such it can make a fantastic location for a proposal. Plus, once you’ve popped the question, you and your new fiancée can then enjoy a vacation celebration. Here are a few ideas of where and how to propose at the ARIA Resort in Vegas.

 

    • Propose In A Suite – The suites at ARIA are beyond stunning, and can help to turn a traditional proposal into something grand and magnificent. Surprise your fiancé-to-be with a stay in a 1,000 square foot Tower Suite, complete with a hot tub in the room. Or, if you really want to take things overboard, check into one of the lavish Sky Suites at the resort. A proposal in one of these locations will set you up for nothing short of an engagement honeymoon!

 

    • Propose At Julian Serrano Restaurant – Typically, a restaurant proposal may seem a bit bland or uncreative – but at the ARIA, there are such incredible dining venues that it can turn into a very special occasion. Whether it’s tapas at Julian Serrano, a wonderful meal at the beautiful Sage restaurant, or even a private dining booking at a venue such as Lemongrass, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to plan something special. You can always start out your evening with a romantic dinner that she thinks is where you plan to propose when in fact there is an entire set up waiting for her in a private room at the hotel.

    • Propose In The Spa – This one’s pretty straightforward. As is traditional in Vegas, the ARIA is home to absolutely incredible spa suites and treatments, and if you’re looking for a very personal and private proposal venue you can’t do much better than relaxing in a Vegas spa!

 

    • Propose At A Show – The popular show at the ARIA is the otherworldly Zarkana, an edition of Cirque du Soleil that’s sure to take your breath away. The show makes any evening memorable, and if you can tie it into your proposal you’ll really have a unique night on your hands. Cirque du Soleil is a fairy tale experience in and of itself – a proposal can keep the dream going!

    • Propose At The Shops – Finally, you can also take advantage of the incredible Shops At Crystals venue at ARIA. This phenomenal collection of high-end shops includes some of the world’s finest jewelers, and is itself an experience. A walk through the Shops At Crystals that leads to a friendly staff member bringing out gifts one by one, that ends in an engagement ring can certainly be a romantic gesture. “

 

If you’re still searching for the best marriage proposal spots then hopefully their suggestions above gave you some good insight! I’d say most females would be all about a relaxing spa day, which can then lead into your surprise proposal set up at the Cirque du Soleil show. You can still involve personalized touches at a show or during a spa day (which The Yes Girls always say is a MUST).

Mondays for Men: First Date Tips

With summer here and new relationships popping up like wild flowers I thought it might be a fun idea to share some simple first date tips! Now, while I am most definitely a self proclaimed hopeless romantic, I do have to say, I am no expert when it comes to dating… so these are just in my opinion. Take em or leave em, either way, happy Monday everyone :)

first date ideas

First date tip #1- ASK HER! I know this sounds silly, but I can’t tell you how many times I have been out with a guy and the whole time I’m thinking, “is this a date, or are we just two people grabbing dinner together?” Yeah, that makes it REAL easy to focus on the conversation… NOT! So when you ask the girl out to get coffee, or grab drinks after work, please please please use the word date in there somewhere!

First date tip #2- MAKE IT PUBLIC. While cooking for her at your place is very romantic, it can be a touch overwhelming for a first date. My suggestion would be something quick and open. Starbucks is a great place for a “getting to know you first date”, or grabbing a beer at the happy hour down the street from your office is great too! Just make sure there is no pressure and it’s a fun atmosphere! Maybe even check out a local, more hipster coffee shop like this one that I love here in Dallas!

First date tip #3- PERSONALIZE IT! Chances are you’ve at least had a conversation with this girl before you ask her on the date, so if she has mentioned she loves Italian food, go to an Italian cafe… or if she loves the color pink, bring a single pink flower to give to her. Just like in a marriage proposal, all the little details are what make it special.

First date tip #4- BE A GENTLEMAN. This one is nonnegotiable. Pick the girl up (and don’t just honk when you arrive, or text her that you’re here, go and ring the dang doorbell). Open the doors for her (including the car door). Pay for the date. Yep, I’m gonna say it again, pay for the date. Chivalry may be old fashion, but it has worked for hundreds of years and who are you to mess with history? (image from blacksheeponline.com)
