Glamorous New York City Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls Events

Okay I have to start by sharing that this guy was so much fun to work with! When Chad Scianna came to The Yes Girls Events for help, all he knew was that he wanted to make Ashley’s proposal as glamorous and beautiful as she is. In his questionnaire Chad said that the thing he loves most about his girl is that every night before she goes to sleep she prays not to ask for anything, but to simply thank God for all she has in her life. Well it was clear that this time, Chad would be thanking God for Ashley! We created a golden Thank You Board and hung notes from Chad with specific things Ashley does that he is grateful for; then we added other “thank you” pieces to really jazz the place up! The decor choices were easy based off of her love of sparkle, gold, Marilyn Monroe, and pink. I mean come on, even her sweater matched the proposal decor!! This beautiful NYC gazebo was the perfect location for this winter marriage proposal and I for one love the views of the city that you can see in the background! Stunning! Big congratulations to Chad & Ashley and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!

Pick out the perfect bridal bouquet

Luxurious Wedding Flowers:

It’s understandable to want to go all out for your big day, but preparations can sometimes feel a bit daunting, especially when planning a luxurious, elegant wedding. The key is to be consistent with your theme throughout every element of the ceremony and reception, which means the personal flowers and floral arrangements included.

Perhaps the most difficult part of building a wedding bouquet is selecting what flowers to use. While you’ve already thought up a motif that goes throughout your decorations, it may be a bit difficult to find flowers that match these colors. Martha Stewart actually recommends using more than one kind of flower for your bouquet, as this just adds layers of complexity to the flower, and offers more opportunities for different shades of colors to be present.

Instead of just tossing ideas out to your florist and hoping that they get what you mean, try spending a few hours with them working on the actual arrangement of the flowers. While it may be difficult to find flowers that match the exact shade of your motif, you can compromise by using shades that closely resemble or echo your themes. Here’s a great tip from Simon Richards, resident flower guru at Marks & Spencer who says: “Two simple rules are to either combine tonal shades of one colour or choose vibrant clashes such as cerise, purple and yellow.”

And the best flowers for the job? Large-headed roses are always a sure hit. In fact, The Knot considers them to be a staple at weddings. Roses may also be the perfect flower for you, since there are hundreds of different varieties that are available throughout the year. Most roses come in solid colors, but there are also some roses that are bi-colored, or even striped.

Here are some great ideas for beautifully elegant wedding bouquets:

A delightful mix of complementary colors and florals. The different-sized blooms add great texture to the bouquet.

Bright and beautiful flowers stand to contrast the bride’s white gown. A bouquet like this is sure to be a hit among the bridesmaids as well.

Adding a touch of white to any combination of colors is always a good idea. It breaks the monotony of the color and ties everything together.

 

We hope these tips will come in handy as our brides-to-be putting together their ideal color scheme and florals. These flower pointers like “using more than one type of flower” can also come into play for most events- an anniversary party, birthday party, baby shower, and bridal showers to name a few.

Non Traditional Valentine’s Day Cards

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I thought I would share some funny, non traditional cards! Contrary to what my romance centered job might portray, I am not one for the sentimental, sappy Hallmark cards. I think if you’re going to write something thoughtful and beautiful it should come from you and be in your handwriting, not in some over-used cursive card font. But that’s the end of my rant for today folks! So, I found some really funny and still sweet Valentine’s Day cards that are sure to bring smile to her face! Enjoy!
