Wedding Wednesday: Brides Tell All

past bride tips and tricks for creating the perfect wedding day

Today our bridal tips and tricks are from Kendall, one of our Orange County Yes Girls! Kendall and Tommy got married 2011 at Parker Ranch in Trabuco Canyon, CA.

RECOMMENDATION: 

Remember to ask for help! If you can’t afford a wedding planner for the whole planning process, definitely look into Day Of Coordination. The last thing any bride needs to be thinking about on her big day is if the cake was delivered on-time and if all the centerpieces are set up! Also, remember that your family and friends love you and in their support, most of them will be willing to help with the DIYs leading up to the big day. You can even make a fun date out of it, grab some pizza and put some good tunes on, then get crafting with your girls :)

REGRET:

My biggest regret would be not getting a plate of all our deserts for the hotel later. We were starving after all the festivities and there was a lot of food that we didn’t even get a chance to try! So definitely recommend asking that coordinator to grab a plate of all the food, especially desserts, to put in the get away car!

Discrete Engagement Ring Box

Not going to lie, I’m kind of kicking myself for not thinking of this earlier. Sometimes it’s the things right in front of us that we just miss and this is one of them. Clifton came up with this new idea- forgo the bulky ring box and keep it hidden with a flat, wallet-sized box! Genius!

Not only will a flat ring box keep it discrete in your pocket the day of the proposal but if you have a snoopy girlfriend she will be less likely to find it since it’s not a traditional ring box.

The Clifton engagement ring boxes start at $99 which you can purchase here. FYI, make sure to buy early because it seems like it’s a hot commodity and sometimes they are out of stock.

New York City Date Night Idea

If you have been reading our blog for any large portion of time you’ve probably figured out that I am a “Friends” fanatic! When I was in high school my dad and I bought and watched every season together and now I find everyday references from the 90s sit-com. So, when I saw this article in the New York Post [image below also from this article] about a Central Perk Replica I knew it was something to look into! For one month only Warner Brothers and Eight O’Clock Coffee are creating a real life Central Perk in Soho, New York! This exact replica will not only have the orange couch from the actual show, but the coffee will be free and appearances by Gunther are scheduled (and secret)!

If you and/or your girlfriend love “Friends” and live in the Tri-State Area, then my suggestion would be to call in a “sick day” and head to the city during the week! This place is going to be jam-packed on the weekends so get that date in on a random Tuesday!

 

If you can’t make a special trip to NYC just to see this coffee shop in person (trust me, I wish I could go too), then why don’t you do your local coffee shop date? Click here to see some fun “coffee date night questions” from a couple of weeks ago :)

The Yes Girls: Baby Gender Reveal Party

Before I share today’s event, it’s with a heavy heart that we remember 9/11 and the families that lost loved ones. They are in our prayers today.

The Yes Girls Heather's Gender Reveal Party

I’m jumping from engagements and fast forwarding to babies so bare with me! A couple weekends ago Kyle and I had quite the experience; we found out amongst family and friends if we would be welcoming a baby boy or baby girl in February! With the help of my future sister-in-law with Craft It Out, we had a gender voting station, onesie banners, cookie toppers and custom bottle labels for the pink and blue drinks! The kiddos loved the pink and blue beach balls floating in the pool while the adults pigged out on baby sized appetizers! I was so in love with all the personalized details I had to share!

The Yes Girls Heather's Gender Reveal Party

My favorite part was holding off and finding out we were having a BOY amongst cheering family! We decided to do a spin off the balloon popping idea to reveal the gender. We got seven black balloons and the party store filled them with blue and pink confetti. Four balloons were filled with the color of the baby’s gender (blue) and the other three were filled with pink. We asked our family and friends to participate in the revealing of the gender via a trivia game. As someone guessed the correct answer s/he got to choose which balloon we popped.

It worked out PERFECTLY! It came down to the last balloon!!! It was SOOOOO difficult not to peek in the envelope but it was well worth the wait to see the blue confetti amongst a roaring crowd! It’s a moment I will never forget.

The Yes Girls, Kendall and I, will both be welcoming baby Boys in January/February 2015! I guess we should get used to more baby decor!

Wedding Wednesday: Brides Tell All

brides tips and tricks for wedding planning

Today our bride is a close friend down in Dallas. She got married just 2 months ago so these insights are fresh!!! If you’re a bride and trying to plan out every detail of your big day, take some time to read these recommendations and regrets from Shelby.

RECOMMENDATION: 

I grew up in a smallish town and personally knew almost everyone in town. So when it came time to create the guest list it was overwhelmingly big! When I started looking for reception venues I was so bummed to find that a lot of the cute unique places can only hold 200 or less. I debated reducing my guest list but then decided it wasn’t worth it. We just found a basic venue and we brought the party. It was full (literally) and full of fun! My recommendation would be to invite everyone you want (within reason). I am so thankful that I got to spend that night with so many people who mean so much to me. People can’t remember the venue if they aren’t there!

REGRET:

My regret would be not having 2 photographers. We loved our photographer and are so happy with the pictures, but I wish we had more candid ones. We have plenty of the posed, planned pictures but a second shooter could have captured a lot of the little moments in between.

Date Night Idea: Indoor Picnic

It’s here!!! FOOTBALL SEASON HAS ARRIVED!!! Okay, so even if you aren’t as excited as I am, you know you’re pretty pumped for this time of year. So now you’re thinking, “how do I keep my woman happy with all the extra hours I will be spending in front of the television in the next couple of months?” Well, why don’t you invite her to join you? Maybe she doesn’t love the sport as much as you do, but if you make it a little bit romantic I bet she wouldn’t mind relaxing with you on those Monday nights! Pick up her favorite meal from that bistro down the street on your way home from work and grab those candle-sticks off the dining room table. Then set up a little indoor picnic in the living room by moving the coffee table and laying a blanket on the ground in front of the tv! If you really want to wow your woman, you can snag a bouquet of her favorite flowers on the way home too. Voila! Simple and inexpensive, but will still romance her while you can watch the game. That’s a win no matter what team you’re cheering for!
