Wedding Wednesday: Brides Tell All

oklahoman bride tips

Hannah and Heath got married Memorial Day Weekend 2013 in Norman, Oklahoma! I can tell you from experience that this couple is definitely one of a kind! She loves pink and all things princess, he loves being outdoors and building things! So we asked Hannah to share one regret and one recommendation to all our lovely Wedding Wednesday readers and here is what she said:

Recommendation: 

Don’t stress out about all the things you “have to do” at the reception (i.e. cutting the cake, first dance, bouquet toss, etc)! I felt that I kept having to keep track of time to make sure that all the items were done correctly and it really hindered my experience with my guests! Instead, put something in charge that you can trust and have them get everything ready. They can help with getting your family members lined up for pictures after the ceremony, getting the guests ready for each “reception to do” and also make sure that you stay on the timeline without creating stress for you. That way you can enjoy your guests, the beautiful venue, the decor, and the man of your dreams!

Regret:

I regret using sprinkles as the grand exit confetti. It hurt REALLY BADLY, was very difficult to get our of our hair, and the color smeared into our clothes and the getaway car! Good in theory, but didn’t work as planned! I totally wish that whoever created that pin on Pinterest would have tried it before pinning it!

Mondays for Men: Proposal Outfit

Wondering what to wear when you propose? It’s a pretty big occasion in your life and if you’ve hired a photographer (which we STRONGLY suggest you do), then you want to look your best when you pop the question! So, what do you wear? Here are a couple of suggestions that we found on Asos. When picking out your outfit, keep in mind the setting, and the temperature! Another thing to think about is your lady’s taste. If she purchased a dress shirt for you or if she has mentioned that she really loves when you wear ____ shirt… it’s probably a good idea to wear that one! If she loves it, use it! :)

Wedding Wednesday: Brides Tell All

This week we get to hear from a bride who’s had more re-pins of her wedding than any bride the Yes Girls have worked with…a bride who also happens to be a Yes Girl!  That’s right we’re gonna hear from the author of our “Friday Rocks” blog Mrs. Becca Ring.
Becca and Chris got married on Thanksgiving weekend in 2012.  Chris is from Tennessee and Becca is from Orange County, but she’s a country girl at heart.  Becca and Chris met at a country line dancing bar, and even when she’s not dancing Becca prefers cowboy boots to heels.  So a country themed wedding was a must for this couple!  Well here’s what Becca had to say when I asked her what she would recommend to other brides and something that she wishes she could re-do:
RECOMMENDATION:
Don’t let you limitations get in the way of your dream for your wedding. I always dreamed of a beautiful country themed wedding but when it came to planning it I felt like there was not enough money and no affordable venues in Orange County that really matched my theme.  So we got creative!  My budget was sort of limited, but I realized that with enough creativity we could make it happen. So I enlisted my bridesmaid to help stretch the budget and make our wedding as beautiful as possible.
I asked them if instead of throwing me a bridal shower (and getting me a shower gift) they would be wiling to put that money and effort into actually planning my wedding. They thankfully agreed and each took on a different aspect of the wedding (someone took the guest book table, another the photobooth, or the place cards, etc.).  Even with a non-country venue, they were able to bring the theme to life and completely transform the space, to the point where when I walked down the aisle I was absolutely amazed to see that my country dream actually became a reality.  In the end, my friends thought of everything (except they kinda forgot to bring Chris’ ring to the ceremony- but hey you can’t win ‘em all) and it meant so much to me that they not only stood next to me that day, but that they were right next to me through the whole process.
REGRET:
My biggest regret from our wedding was not finding an officiant who really knew Chris and I as a couple. Because I was focused on cutting corners, staying within my budget, and our limited time frame I chose the most convenient option.   Someone who really didn’t know us personally. Usually, the officiant will share a couples love story and really set the tone for the rest of the wedding.  I’m not a very romantic or mushy person, but I felt like we really missed out on having that emotional connection as part of our ceremony.  I think the ceremony is the most special part of a wedding and even though I felt a strong connection with Chris that day, I was a bummer that connection wasn’t shared with our guests.

Mondays for Men: Affordable Gift Idea

So remember a couple of weeks back when we talked about gifts and how they don’t need to be expensive, just thoughtful? Well here is a great example of one of those “cheap, yet memorable” gifts. The ABCs of Our Love. Go to Toys R Us, or some local toy store and find an ABC lesson of some type. You can get one of those wooden puzzles (you know the kind with the pegs sticking out), you can get ABC flash cars, or an ABC coloring book. Whatever it is, make it cute! Then go home and write out something you love about your girl for each letter. For example, the letter C could have something about your first date being over Coffee. Or the letter N can be about how much you love watching Neflix together! Best part about this project is that it doesn’t require a lot of “craftiness” or money, just time and thoughtfulness! It’s the perfect random gift for your gal.

From the first or second decade of the twentieth century, we are pleased to offer this exceptionally beautiful Edwardian jewel sparkling front and center with a brilliant European-cut diamond weighing 2.26 carats. The dynamic diamond is presented in a exquisitely detailed mounting, hand fabricated in platinum and glistening all around with over fifty small Swiss-cut diamonds.

The gorgeous stone scintillates between scrolls of vertically set baguette diamonds and is bordered north and south by rows of glittering single-cut diamonds and is embellished east and west with classic diamond-set chevrons.

Langs Antiques Victorian Rose Ring

A bright and beautiful European-cut diamond, weighing .83 carat, is bezel-set and orbited by ten smaller diamonds of like cut and totaling 1.00 carat in this late-Victorian (circa 1890-1905) super-sparkler crafted in 18K rose gold.

Private Beach Dinner Marriage Proposal

Hurricanes can’t stop us! That’s right, last weekend there may have been an epic tropic storm in Florida, but we still managed to pull of a beautifully romantic proposal on the beach in Key West, Florida. This stunning proposal was on a private island and their dinner was extremely romantic in a private palapa! I mean, you cannot get more perfect than that! Sanil and Herpreet love documenting their relationship over the years in photos and so we took a couple of the “highlights” of their relationship and created a fun timeline for them! As they walked to each sign along the path, Sanil explained how memorable that time was in their relationship. When he got to the last sign he told her that this trip was a special time for them and he wanted to remember it forever!
