New York City Christmas Tree Marriage Proposal

Ladies, Dan is such a romantic guy! Seriously! He called us back in December and knew he wanted to sweep his woman off her feet in every sense of the word. They flew up to New York  for Christmas to visit Bernadette’s family up there. Then he told her he wanted to celebrate with a little Christmas Date in Manhattan the Wednesday before the holiday. When they arrived in Manhattan that morning, we had a private helicopter tour of the city all arranged for them! After that, they went shopping and found a perfect “dinner dress” for Bernadette to change into. Then they enjoyed a couples massage at the Ritz and he then told her they would be going to dinner. But little did she know, Dan had rented out an entire rooftop and decorated it with her favorite colors and holiday theme decor (with a little help from yours truly, of course)! The weather didn’t exactly corroborate with us that day, but thankfully the rooftop that we rented had an indoor area we could move to!

The personalized decor for this stunning proposal included custom picture ornaments with the memories from the last eight years of their relationship, and three gifts wrapped in her favorite colors. One gift represented the past, one the future, and the last gift was the present – it was another ornament that said “SHE SAID YES”! After the big moment their family joined them for a celebratory toast on the rooftop :) And to top it all off – this whole beautiful proposal was planned in 5 days!!!

A Yes Girl Gets Married: Staying Organized

As a bride, staying organized and focused is vital. For me, the best way to keep my “eye on the prize” is to have a check-list. After Aaron proposed my mind was spinning with ideas and thoughts about how to make sure our wedding was everything that it could be. These day-dreams turned into night-drams and eventually led to keeping me up at night. So, my lovely boss purchased a May Designs journal for me. This little notebook helps me to keep all my thoughts organized and it helps that it’s super cute to look at too! Whenever I go to vendor meetings, whether it’s to discuss how many tables we are renting or what cake flavors we are trying, this little notebook planner comes with me! And here is a little fun fact about me, I absolutely live and breathe on a good check-list. Crossing off boxes makes my heart do a little flutter :) So it feels infinitely more exciting when I get to “x out” a to-do list for the wedding!

So what about you ladies, how do (or did) you stay organized as a bride-to-be? Oh and here is a fun fact, you can send this adorable little planner (along with some other cute gifts) to your bride-to-be bff in our Just Engaged Gift Box!

Cold Weather Wedding Dresses

It doesn’t matter what event you’re dressing for;  when the weather gets cold, it’s tempting to give up on looking cute and just look like a potato sack.  If you do this on your wedding day, though, you might be warm and have extra room to bust out those dance moves, but you’ll regret it the second you see your wedding pictures.
So, is it possible to get the best of both worlds?  Definitely!  These dresses have all the comfort and warmth, and none of the nasty potato sack.

A Yes Girl Gets Married: Bridal Shower Dresses

Funny story, over the last 8 months of being engaged I’ve spent hours planning different aspects of our wedding day. Cake tastings, venue scouting, dress shopping, and the list goes on and on and on. And people keep asking me one question, “how does it feel to finally be planning your own wedding?” Well the fact is, that I haven’t really felt like I’m planning my own wedding. I plan romantic events everyday for other people (and absolutely love it, I might add)! So planning our wedding feels just like a normal day at work. That’s been my answer to everyone’s question… I’ve just admitted that it hasn’t really hit me yet that I’m planning my own big day.

Until the last two weekends. On January 16th I had my very first bridal shower! Having an event that was all about Aaron and me definitely made things feel more real! And then on January 23rd we had a couple’s shower. Talk about two wonderful weekends back-to-back!

Today I’m not only rambling on about how bizarre it feels to be planning a wedding where I will be in white at the front of the aisle (instead of running around trying to not be caught in any pictures like normal), but I’m also sharing the beautiful bridal shower dresses that I wore at my last two showers! I spent weeks searching for all different white dresses to wear to my many “bridal events” and these two dresses are probably my favorite! (Except of course, my actual bridal gown is my favorite white dress!)

Proposing on Valentine’s Day

Some people frown upon proposing during valentines day because it’s cliche, however if done properly, it could be the perfect time of year to pop the question.  Call it Cupid or the love in the air, but every year around February, us women tend to be in a little more of a romantic mood than usual.  Not only are we really feeling the love, but we’re also feeling extra grateful for our men and all that you do for us.  All of these feelings can almost guarantee a yes!

For the men who do not usually go out of their way to plan creative dates, it’s very likely that your lady will catch on the moment she realizes that you already have the night planned.  Valentine’s Day provides the perfect excuse to treat her to something extravagant, without her being suspicious.  Since she thinks you’re just going out of your way to make the holiday special, her surprised face will make the proposal that much better.

To avoid the corniness of the typical Valentine’s proposal, try proposing the weekend before or after.  Call it a late celebration, and the surprise factor will still be there.  This is also helpful if you’re planning on renting out a venue, considering everywhere will be booked solid on February 14th.  Trust us, you don’t want to be proposing in a crowded restaurant, where she can’t even hear you say “Will you marry me?”  It’s easy to go with over-done details (candles, rose petals, etc.) on a day like Valentine’s day, when sometimes all that’s actually needed are a few personal touches to create the perfect proposal (see examples below).

If you’re ready to give her a simple, yet personal, proposal that she’ll brag about forever, book your date with The Yes Girls today! You can get started here
