Wedding Wednesday: Something Old Ideas

A couple of weeks ago we posted an article about ideas for your “something blue” in your wedding day attire. Well today is all about the “something old”! Here are some ideas that you can use in your upcoming nuptials :)

  • Inherited jewelry: could be anything from your grandmother’s pearls to the earrings your sister wore in her wedding
  • Bouquet brooch: maybe one of your relatives have a beautiful antique brooch that you can use to on the stems of your bridal bouquet!
  • Bridal gown: although the 80s weren’t great as far as wedding gown fashions are concerned, you could take your mom’s bridal gown and have it altered to be more stylish in today’s standards and custom fit to you!
  • Fabric: okay, maybe you don’t want your mom’s entire gown! But you could always use a piece of her gown and sew it into your dress.
  • Veil: If a relative’s dress isn’t available maybe their veil is! How special would it be for your husband-to-be to lift the same veil that your grandfather lifted on your grandparent’s wedding day?!
  • A Sixpence (or just a silver coin): The traditional rhyme about what a bride should wear at her wedding for good luck goes, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and a Silver Sixpence in her Shoe.”

Repost: Great places to propose in California

Planning marriage proposals across the map, The Yes Girls have found some pretty cool proposal spaces for popping the question. We of course would ALWAYS say to add more personalized touches (favorite wine with personalized label, element from a favorite date, a custom art piece, an inside joke brought to life, etc.) to these hidden gems but having the right atmosphere is definitely a big piece of this puzzle. Today I’m sharing some of our favorite finds up and down the coast of sunny California. Ladies, what do you think? Would you say “yes!” at these glorious location?!

1. Brix in Napa Valley (part of the Vintners Estate)

2. Crystal Cove Beach and Bluffs in Orange County, CA

3. Samuel P. Taylor State Park (Redwoods) in Somona Coast, CA

4. Gainy Winery in Santa Barbara, CA

5. The Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA

The Original Marriage Proposal Planners

With all the incredible wedding proposals that we have had in the last couple of weeks I thought today would be a good day to sit back and remember what we do and why we love to do it. Planning a proposal is so much more than just asking those 4 little words, it’s the start of your life together as a married couple. Wether you’re living together already or you just met a couple of months ago, this question will most certainly change your life forever! Here are a couple of reasons why I absolutely love being part of The Yes Girls Events, the original marriage proposal planners!

1) Guys come to us in all different stages of the planning process and stay involved in the whole thing. Some have the idea all ironed out and just need someone to set up the whole thing that day, and some guys have no idea how to create something spectacular, but they know that they want to “wow” their woman.

2) It truly is a form a chivalry. I was one of those girls that grew up dreaming about my wedding; I knew the type of chair I wanted, the style of linens and definitely that the theme would be something timeless. But when it came to planning my proposal I knew that this was my future husband’s chance to shine. This is the one piece of the whole wedding process that I have zero say in and that he gets to take full credit for! Taking this opportunity to really express how much he loves me is so genuine and chivalrous.

3) I get to be creative. What job has you waking up and first thing in the morning figuring out fun ways to incorporate dogs into the event? I think it’s super fun to figure out ways to bring in fun quirks that couples share with each other into their proposals!

4) I love love love reading the guy’s questionnaires. One of my love languages is words of affirmation so reading the kind words that these men share with us about their ladies is so beautiful to me. I would say that I tear up with about 60% of the questionnaires and I always feel like these girls should read the kind words that are spoken about them. Seriously, these things are incredible and so so romantic.

5) I get to be a Yes Girl. I know it’s not hard to believe, but this job was honestly my dream job for years before it was even offered to me. As soon as Heather told me that I could officially start telling people that I was a “Yes Girl” I started crying. I’m a dork, but changing my work status on Facebook to this job was such an awesome moment in my life. I get to work with a bunch of girls that make me laugh, care about me, and encourage me on a daily basis. Seriously, I love my job.

Fiesta Themed Wedding Shower

Last weekend I had the privilege of going to a dear friend’s wedding couple shower. I knew when I got the invitation that this was going to be a “fiesta theme” shower, but I had no idea the attention to details and amount of work that went into this shower until I arrived. If I had known I for sure would have brought my camera along to snap photos and inspiration all over the place! Fortunately enough for us, the bride’s family took a couple of photos and they were gracious enough to share them with us all! Make sure to notice the small details, like the Spanish Tabloids that were in the bathroom, the bathtub filled with Mexican beer and tea, the Spanish Phrase DIY coasters, the colored cotton balls hanging from all the light fixtures… I could go on and on and on! Instead why don’t you just enjoy these detail shots from this incredible Spanish Theme Couples Shower! :)

Surprise Washington DC Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls

We got a call from Joshua while he was deployed overseas hoping to surprise his beautiful girlfriend, Carolyn, upon his return. We were more than happy to help!!

Washington DC Marriage Proposal by the yes girls

Carolyn’s favorite hobby is relaxing with a spa day so when she arrived for what she thought was a normal massage appointment she was led into a treatment room decked out in sunflowers (her fav), a musician to serenade classical jazz and a custom art piece if Batman and Catwoman.

We learned they have an inside joke about being Batman and Catwoman and she had a painting made when they first began dating of the backdrop where they met but it had Batman and Catwoman in their place. That became the inspiration of Joshua’s proposal to Carolyn but this time it was a Washington DC backdrop with a ring box to represent where he would pop the question! So sweet!
