New Ways to do a Sweetheart Table

Recently, I attended a wedding of a family member and was blown away at the couple’s ability to create a personal connection to each of their guests! Not only did they make the usual rounds at the reception, it often felt as if I was just sitting in their living room, having a chat over drinks. One of the details that played such a big part in the approachable feeling was the way they decided to conduct their sweetheart table! Instead of sitting at the head of the room with a table and chairs, the couple opted to ditch the formality and bring in a couch, which was placed off to the side. When the bride sat down to take off her heels and relax a bit, guests knew it was okay to stop by, chat, and to make themselves at home. It’s amazing what such a simple piece of furniture can do for the mood on your big day! Here are some examples of creative ways to conduct a sweetheart table!

Spring Gift Guide for your Gal

I don’t know about you, but this recent burst of spring has got me in a great mood (especially for a Monday!) The birds are chirping, bees are buzzing, and I even opted to walk to the bus today to enjoy the weather, rather than drive to school. It must be all that energy winter kept bottled up inside.

 

I also just discovered a new jogging trail near my house that I’m dying to try out! All I need now is a new pair of running shoes and some fashionable headbands, which is exactly what I’ll be dropping hints to my man for! Spring is upon us, which means bathing suit season is right around the corner and I can no longer continue being a couch potato. Goodbye Netflix and hello sunshine! Check out these gifts for your gal so she can start hitting the trails and seeing the outdoors as well. Better yet, lace up your shoes and make a date out of it!

Scottsdale Marriage Proposal Video by The Yes Girls

A couple of weeks ago we shared the beautiful photos from RaLa Photographer (full post here), but this week we get to share the awesome video from Ryan Blake Films! Dave wanted to be hands on and involved during the whole process, so we made an extra special point to keep him in the loop! He was in our meetings with the vendors and even hand selected a couple of the items. Everything from the flowers, to the signs, to the vintage bookshelf were all thoughtfully added by Dave (with a little help from us of course) into this proposal.

I can truly feel the pure love and admiration that Dave feels for Kristina in this video and I hope y’all enjoy it as much as we did!

Date Night Jar Update

Awhile back, we brought you a how-to tutorial on creating the perfect date night jar just like those found all over Pinterest! We still stand by the success these jars offer when it comes to planning dates, so an update seemed like the perfect tool for this week. There are endless possibilities when it comes to date night (or even date day) ideas! Here are a few of our favorite ideas that you can add to update your date jar or finally start one of your own!

  • Couple’s Photo-shoot! Dig out one of those old disposable cameras you have laying around and ask a friend to snap some pictures! No need to take these too seriously. Have some fun at a park or even your own back yard, take the camera to your local drug store, and get instant prints of your fun photo-shoot. Your next date could involve making a scrapbook!
  • Attend a local sporting event! Whether you live in a college town or a big city, decide to stick to a local minor league team and catch a game of whatever sport is in season! To add an extra “twist” you can restrict yourselves to only going to see a team you’ve never watched before.
  • Dessert only date! This one involves just a minor amount of spoiling yourselves. Make dinner at home together, but leave the house for dessert. This could range anywhere from an ice cream shop, to your favorite dessert at a restaurant you love. Whatever it is, make it sweet!

Floral Table Runners

I have to admit, ever since Catherine and Sean’s Wedding on ABC last year, we have been obsessed with cascading florals as centerpieces. Fresh flowers have always been the fastest way to my heart, and these elaborate centerpieces just cannot get any better! I swear, it’s like someone reached inside my dreams and created something that I never even knew was possible. Please excuse me while I swoon over these beautiful tablescapes and the runners that have been replaced by gorgeous flowers…

Gift for your Girl: Words of Encouragement

Chances are, your gal is one busy lady; her schedule is full of long days of work, kids to pick up, meetings to attend, and important people to speak to. When was the last time you gave her some encouragement and random words of affirmation? Often, the gifts that we gals like the most are the least expensive, but most thoughtful ones!

Check out some of these cute notes from TinyPrints that you can order online. My suggestion would be to keep a set of them at your desk at work. Then, when you can tell that your lady is having a rough day, or if she does something extraordinarily awesome jot it down. It doesn’t have to be super long or overly sappy, just a quick reminder of why you love her so much. When you come home and give her the note, her reaction won’t disappoint- I promise!

St Regis Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls Events

Botanical Gardens Proposal

 

I think I can official say that I have a new favorite marriage proposal story. I mean, common, look at these INCREDIBLE photos! This proposal was decked out with gorgeous white and ivory floral arrangements, and rustic rentals to really create a perfectly shabby-chic design. Jason and Vanessa have lots of different sayings and love songs that are special to their relationship. So we highlighted those with little notes in personalized wine cork holders (seriously one of my favorite pieces of a proposal decor of all time)! Then we threw in a dozen of their best pictures together in timeless silver frames. The sheer draping on the gazebo added so much glamour behind the rustic tablescape. Since Vanessa loves receiving thoughtful gifts from Jason, we had the last little note inside a simple gift box- this note asked the question that changed their lives!

We are so happy for this wonderful couple and cannot wait to see the beauty that this wedding will bring! Congratulations Jason & Vanessa!
