Friday “Rocks”! featuring Gemvara

Friday-Rocks-Banner-Chevronn1

I can’t get enough of these engagement rings from Gemvara!! Such romantic and beautifully designed pieces! I love these words from the Jeweler:

“Engagement rings have been the ultimate symbol of love for thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, they wore rings on the third finger of the left hand to mark where the “vein of love” went directly to the heart, starting a tradition that continues today. When pledging your love with a unique engagement ring, you are starting your own family tradition. The most important value factor to consider when shopping for diamond engagement rings is the quality of the center stone. Gemvara hand-selects top quality conflict-free gems that are expertly cut for maximum beauty. Diamond inspires with its signature combination of fire and ice. Our unrivalled selection of engagement rings by Carl Ansley, David West, Martha Gomez Gutierrez, and other talented jewelry designers means you can find an engagement ring that perfectly symbolizes your relationship. Gemvara’s fine quality diamond engagement rings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.”

Throwback Thursday: Dallas Styled Shoot

Since last week’s Throwback Thursday blog post was such a hit, we decided to try it again and share one of my very first Yes Girls events. This was a fun styled shoot that we created for Engagement 101 Magazine back in 2012 at Reverchon Park in Dallas. We had an outdoor library (for the girl who loves to read), an outdoor craft studio (for the DIY girl), and a tailgate lounge (for the girl who loves to chill or perhaps love drive-in movies). Here are some of my favorite images from this fun day!

Reasons to Have an Open Bar at Your Wedding

Weddings are pricey- whether you stick to the bare minimum or go all out, chances are you’ll spend more on the event than you’d like to admit.  Often times, when the bride and groom are in the planning process and feeling extremely overwhelmed by how much their wedding is actually going to cost, they will start to cut the “non-necessities” out and opt for cheaper substitutes.  Sometimes the bride and groom decide that alcohol just isn’t a priority, and they choose to skip the open bar.  While ultimately this is an easy way to cut down on wedding costs, your wedding can very well suffer for it.

For starters, let’s think about the guests.  Depending on the wedding, guests will probably travel some distance or another, take off work, or spend their day off celebrating the couple.  They will probably also spend a good amount of money on wedding gifts and outfits for the event.  So, with all the effort they are putting into a wedding for someone they really care about, they might feel a little cheated when their only choice of beverages are water and soda.  It’s not selfish, it’s just expected.  Trust us, on your big day when everyone is wandering around looking for a drink, you don’t want to be the bearer of bad news that there aren’t any.

Another point to consider is the reception.  Unless you are having an elegant, formal reception (more of a dinner)  it’s likely that there will be music and guests will be expected to have fun and dance.  We all have the friends and family that “won’t dance when they’re sober” and there will always be those guests at a wedding.  Their usual fix is to get a few drinks in them until they are confident enough to hit the dance floor (and sometimes, they end up being the most fun dancers out there!)  What happens when they don’t have that to rely on?  A bunch of guests awkwardly sitting at their tables not knowing what to do, and an empty dance floor.  Sure, alcohol is never needed to have fun, but sometimes it can push the event over the top and ensure that every guest is loving the wedding just as much as the Bride and Groom.

New Items in the Just Engaged Gift Box!

A couple of weeks ago, our inventory of Just Engaged Gift Boxes dwindled down and instead of re-ordering the same items, we decided to mix up our restock! So, today I’m excited to announce that we are now throwing in some fresh-new items into the wonderful gifts for your bride-to-be gal pals. We all know that a newly engaged woman has to keep her finger nails looking pristine so she can show off that new rock on a well manicured hand; with that in mind, we have found the cutest soft-pink nail polish that the bride is sure to love! We also mixed up the covers of the adorable May Design Wedding Planners to have a crisp new look. And there are a couple of other new items we will keep a surprise :)

If your co-worker, bff, soon-to-be-sister-in-law, or even your sorority sister just said “YES” then check out our newly restocked JUST ENGAGED GIFT BOX. #shoptheyesgirls
