Winter Winery Marriage Proposal by The Yes Girls

Napa Valley Marriage Proposals never fail to be stunning! David and Catie traveled out to wine country the day after Thanksgiving this year for what she thought would be just a fun trip. But, at their first stop on their winery tour Friday morning, they “stumbled upon” a beautiful table with plaid Christmas gifts! David then explained that these are come of Catie’s early Christmas gifts, and they opened them one by one. Each gift represented a piece of Catie’s personality. A healthy cookbook for two (because Catie has been making David start to eat things like kale and quinoa); two coffee mugs (because every morning the couple takes time to have coffee together at their kitchen table and talk about the day ahead); a personalized bible with Catie’s future initials on them; a children’s nativity book (to give to their future kids); and a Christmas ornament that Catie will never forget – an engagement ring!

After she said yes, the couple continued on to one more wine tasting stop, and then to a celebratory dinner. When they walked into the restaurant Catie found her best friend, brother, and parents waiting at their table! David had flown in their favorite people to surprise Catie after the proposal! SO SWEET :)

4 Best Proposal Ideas For The Holidays

Can you believe Christmas is less than 10 days away?! If you are still looking to pop the question during the holiday season here are a few tips and ideas we highly suggest! If you are stuck on the HOW to propose part, we got you covered here.

 

1. Make it thoughtful

You might be feeling the pressure but you still can make it thoughtful and personalized for her. Consider 3 of her favorite things (i.e.: favorite Christmas tradition, flower, and holiday movie) and incorporate that into your proposal. Sometimes the smallest details speak the loudest.

2. Capture the proposal.

If you plan to pop the question on Christmas Day and a professional photographer isn’t an option, ask a family member to do it. It’s better to get it on film or camera, even if you aren’t 100% sure, because you can’t do it over!

3. Use your resources!

If you’re spending it with family then use them as a resource to create a ruse. If you want to surprise her at a special location, have a family member distract her since she will just think they want to spend time catching up while you’re visiting. If you are both extroverts, consider involving the family in the actual proposal whether it’s popping out of Christmas boxes or just standing by to cheer after she says “yes!”

4. Play off the Holiday season

Think about all the fun things you can do around Christmas- holiday lights, ice skating, decorating a Christmas tree, exchanging Christmas stockings, etc. and use that to create the perfect lead in for your fun and romantic proposal!

New Years and Valentine’s Day proposals are going to be popping up before we know it so plan ahead and get started on your proposal here! Whether your traveling or staying local, we can help personalize your proposal ideas. We can incorporate any ideas you have (if you don’t have any ideas, we gather helpful info anyways so no worries) while creating a memory that she has always dreamed about! We will give it that special female touch.  Happy proposing!

Christmas Gift for Your Fiancée or Wife

Alright married/engaged men- this week is for you! Here are some gift ideas for your leading ladies. Because you’re already committed to this gal, you really need to hike up the romance on Christmas gifts. I promise she has been dropping hints, so try to keep a special eye out for things she has mentioned “oh I would love —” or “it would be so much fun to do — if we had the time”. Remember, Christmas gifts don’t have to be items, they can be a special date together!

Whether it’s something with your wedding monogram, or new last name, or a place to display pictures of your kids – personalization and effort are key in the gifts for a wife (or soon-to-be wife)!

Try something along these lines:

Sneek Peak: Baby Showers

Can I just say this last month I have felt totally spoiled by my friends and family! I got to experience my first baby shower (which was a double shower because my Kindergarden best friend has the same EXACT due date!) which was INCREDIBLE and played off the movie Father Of The Bride Part 2. My family then went and surprised me a month later with an adventure and airplane themed baby shower (in honor of my husband and him getting a co-pilot)! Seriously they know me so well it’s ridiculous! I can’t wait to show you all the pics but here are a few highlight pics!

 

DOUBLE THE FUN BABY SHOWER

Upon arriving, Lydia and I (same due dates ) were welcomed with these amazing chalkboard signs! Since one of our favorite movies is Father Of The Bride (we are pretty much obsessed with Frank) not only was it playing on the tv in the background but they had one of the best quotes from the movie there to greet us! Get out of town!

How amazing is this pinwheel backdrop!? By far one of the best details from the shower and the perfect backdrop for all our photos! Lindsay and Becca really out did themselves with this shower, but then again that’s why they are a part of The Yes Girls team! I was IN LOVE!

 

AIRPLANE THEMED BABY SHOWER

One of my favorite statement pieces from the shower was the ballon wall and refreshment station. Karley, my mom, mother-in-law, and Gram all participated in putting this together. I was obsessed with the propeller labels and straws that said “ETA 2.9.15″ to represent my due date. My crafty future sister-in-law, Karley, from Craft It Out created all those personalized details!

Everything about this was genius! It was the “Check In and Ticketing” station! They asked guests to fill out a boarding pass which included them guessing when baby will “deplane”. Furthermore, they left blank envelopes where guess could write their addresses so it made it SUPER easy for me to send out thank you cards! Talk about a total win!

Can’t wait to share the rest! Stay tuned!
