Paper Airplane Marriage Proposal in Orange County, CA

Proposal with Paper Airplanes

Diana has tons of little “sayings” that she tells Ghanim all the time. Cute little things like, “don’t underestimate this girl” and “true to that!” or “be original”! So we incorporated that unique piece of their relationship into the fact that the two love to travel by writing some of these sayings on adorable paper airplanes. Pink and blue are Diana’s favorite colors, so of course all the planes were in those colors. And with the beautiful Pacific Ocean backdrop, this proposal was sure to be a hit!

The Anatomy of the Perfect Couple’s Gift Basket

couples gift basket couples gift basket couples gift basket couples gift basket couples gift basket
Gifting for anyone can be a tedious task if you’re not properly prepared or if you haven’t known the recipient long enough to know exactly what they would like.  Gifting for couples means double the stress of trying to find the perfect gift, plus the added pressure of combining the gifts in a way that’s not awkward or cheesy.  So what on Earth do you give a couple that fits these requirements?  My personal favorite gift to put together is a gift basket.  Why?  You can put together relatively cheap odds and ends and come up with a perfectly finished product that will make the recipient think that you put a lot of effort (and money) into such a thoughtful gift.  Here is my secret recipe for the perfect couples gift basket:
1.  Something for Her
Start by thinking of her likes and interests.  Let’s say she loves to cook.  In this case, I would start my gift basket by picking out an interesting and aesthetically pleasing cookbook for her portion of the gift basket.
2.  Something for Him
Next, add something that’s particular to his taste.  My go-to for any man is a nice bottle of bourbon.  If he’s not into drinking, you can use cigars, playing cards, or anything manly that is still pleasing to the eye.
3.  Something Edible
Cellophane bags of caramel corn, cookies, caramels, etc., are perfect for making the basket look abundant and sophisticated.  Bars of chocolate are also lovely, just steer clear of “Dollar Candy” such as the typical candy you can find at any Walmart or drug store.
4.  Something for the Home
A nice candle, blanket, bottle opener, mule mugs, or a coffee table book (if books are not already used for a different portion) can add depth to the gift, since home decor or tools can be for both men and women.
5.  Something to Do
To add excitement to the gift, I like to add an activity for the couple to do together, such as a cocktail recipe to create (to go along with those mule mugs), or a cozy date night idea (a reason to use that blanket!)

Lastly, find the perfect basket (I like wire baskets or wooden crates) and fill with paper shreds.  Place each item neatly in the basket, add finishing touches such as a bow and hand-written tag, and Voila…the perfect couple’s gift basket!

 

And of course, being the Number 1 Romance Experts, we have thought of all these wonderful things and put them into one convenient Gift Box just for you. Our Love Gift Box has a Qalo Ring for him, a beautiful rose gold necklace for her, something edible, something for the home, AND something for the couple to do together. You can send this awesome gift box as a Holiday present to your favorite couple here: http://theyesgirls.com/love-gift-box (pssst- it can also double as a gift for your wife guys, so don’t be shy! We will even send it to her office for you so that you get double brownie points with the public display of affection!)

Protea Wedding Bouquets

I’m going to be honest with you, until last February, I had never heard of a Protea Flower! We had a client that was proposing to his florist girlfriend and a protea was her favorite flower. So, being the planner that I am, I immediately started doing tons of research and fell in love with this unique bud. It’s sharp lines and explosive esthetic captivated me from the start. So here are some stunning protea bouquets (both bridal bouquets and bridesmaid bouquets) to inspire your unique wedding arrangements.

Tips for Proposing During the Holidays

We saw lots of proposals over Thanksgiving last week, and with Christmas right around the corner, there are a lot of engagement announcements that will start popping up within the next few weeks.  There’s something so romantic about proposing over the holidays, so if you’re feeling the love lately and thinking about popping the question, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

1.  Take advantage of Christmas traditions and activities.
Using her favorite Christmas activities in the proposal is the perfect way to not only ensure that she’s enjoying herself, but also that she won’t suspect that anything is going on.  Chopping down the tree, ice skating, and gingerbread house competitions are all super cute ways to propose without her catching on ahead of time.

2.  Make the moment extra sentimental.
Does she have a favorite Christmas memory?  Take her back to her favorite childhood spot, or make the Christmas dinner her Grandma used to make when she was little.  Tapping into those warm, sappy feelings with make the moment extra romantic and oh so memorable!

3.  Include family and friends.
Christmas is definitely a time to be surrounded by loved ones, so if she’s close to her family, why not include them in the proposal?  It will be a moment that everyone would be happy to be a part of, and that she would love to have them in on.

4.  Don’t propose on the actual holiday.
While the season of Christmas is warm and cozy, the actual day itself can be stressful if there are many places to go and things to do.  Also, the holiday is about much more than your engagement, and it wouldn’t be fair to take all the attention for yourself when all family members should be visiting.

5.  Don’t get carried away with the eggnog.
This goes for all proposals… whether the nerves are getting the best of you, or you’re having a little too much fun, save the alcohol until the post-proposal celebration.  Slurring your words and wobbling on one knee is not the best way to get a “YES!”

How to Drop a Hint to your Boyfriend that You’re ready to get married

Have you been anxiously awaiting him to pop the question? Patiently (or maybe not so patiently) trying to convince him that you’re ready to get married? Are you subtly dropping hints that it’s time to put a ring on it? Well, those subtle (and not so subtle) hints come in handy in our business and we’ve got ya covered!

Tell Him You're Ready to Get engaged

  1. Wink Wink. We have a system on our website called a “wink wink” where you leave us your boyfriend’s email address and we casually send him a coupon for our services. You’re not attached to the coupon at all, so he has no way of knowing it came from you… it just magically appears in his inbox :)
  2. eBook. Our team of romance experts have put together an online, easy to download eBook that’s just $19. It’s been a top seller on our website for years now, and we recently took some time to do a little “revamping” of the book. So it’s packed with great “idea sparks”, location ideas, and even tips of the proposal-secret-keeping-masters! You can download this eBook and casually leave it laying around at your place. Or, if you’re looking for a little less subtle approach, you can even download it straight to his computer!
  3. Pinterest. It’s the wedding-day-dreamer’s haven and we are on it! We have hundreds of pins from previous proposals, and even some great tips on how to pop the question. So Pin away and then make sure your boyfriend knows your username! You can have a friend or your sister show him how to find you on Pinterest (then make sure your “proposal board” and “wedding board” aren’t set to private so that we can sneakily see what you’re wanting for your big day)!
  4. Instagram. This one is a shoo-in. Sneakily grab your boyfriend’s phone and open his insta account, then follow us for him! Then next time he goes for a little scroll down his home-feed he will see all the romantic ideas we post about daily. And he will never even know it was your doing :)
