Washington DC Cupcake Shop Marriage Proposal Video

If you didn’t catch last week’s post, then you missed some ADORABLE engagement pictures! So make sure to click here and check it out, I promise it’s worth it. Michael and Sadie’s precious cupcake shop marriage proposal was complete with a wonderful proposal video. I’m going to be honest, this is the first proposal video that has made me tear up in about a year (I think since my own proposal video)! The song is just sooooo perfect, and the couple’s love is just the cherry on the cupcake ;)

Creative Summer Wedding Favors

One of the keys to having a guest-friendly wedding is by giving them something to be excited about.  Sure, they will already be excited about your marriage, but it’s always nice when the guests can be excited for themselves at the same time.  One of my favorite ways to make guests feel included is with wedding favors.
You can choose your favors based off the theme or color palette of your wedding, but it’s also fun to choose them to fit the season as well.  Summer is, in my opinion, the best season for wedding favors because there is an abundance of beautiful things everywhere.  Whether you want to gather treats from nature or buy your favors in store, there are endless options to choose from.  The only challenging part will be trying to narrow your options down to just one!

6 Things to Do the Night Before You Propose

1.  Pick your outfit.  If you haven’t already thought about what you would wear when your propose, there are several things to consider.  First, think about location.  Where will you be getting down on one knee?  The outfit you choose needs to fit the location.  If you’re proposing on a beach, it’s easier to get wet sand out of casual clothes rather than a suit.  Also, consider your plans leading up to the proposal (it’s probably not appropriate to wear khakis if you’re going to a five star restaurant.)

Things to do before you propose

2.  Test the outfit.  This seems obvious, but is often forgot.  Check to make sure the bottoms you choose can withstand getting down on one knee.  If they are too tight, the romantic mood of the proposal might be ruined by the sound of your pants ripping down the seam.

3.  Clean the ring.  This is especially important if you picked it out, and it’s the first time she will ever be seeing it.  You want her to be blown away by the gorgeous ring you chose, but fingerprints and dust can alter the diamond’s look for the worse.

Things to do before you propose
4. Check the weather (and have a backup plan.)  While the backup plan should actually be made when you are planning the proposal, it’s always a good idea to still check the weather the night before.  If there’s a chance for rain at the time you were going to propose, you might just need to push it back a few hours so you can still follow your original plan.

5. Practice your speech.  No matter how comfortable you are with your girl, proposals can be pretty high-emotion.  Chances are, once you get down on one knee, you’re going to forget the words you’ve been wanting to say for so long.  The best way to remember?  Practice. Practice. Practice and do it OUT LOUD so you get used to saying the words.

Things to do before you propose
6. Spend some time by yourself.  As tempting as it is to spend your last day as “boyfriend and girlfriend,”  it’s never a bad idea to spend some alone time the night before.  It delays any arguments that could happen and ruin the proposal.  Also, the time that you spend together the next day will feel even more special since you weren’t together the night before.  Last but not least, if you’re bad at surprises, spending time by yourself ensures that you won’t get too excited and spill the beans.
