Marriage Proposal with Fireworks in Orange County by The YES Girls

oc marriage proposal with fireworks
Brooks booked his custom proposal ideas package back in 2016. But then with the holidays and the business that naturally comes with that season, he decided to put everything on hold for a bit. Then, after the New Year we circled back around and started moving on the couple’s big day! Brooks knew he wanted fireworks – not sparklers or ground work, but true, over the top Fourth of July style fireworks! So we brainstormed the custom decor that would add thoughtfulness to his proposal, but wouldn’t detract from the ‘wow factor’ of the fireworks. Ultimately, we decided that we should create a structure out of umbrellas. On their first date, Brooks and Amber went for a walk on the beach and it started raining – so umbrellas and rain have had a special place in their relationship! We added in some twinkle lights to give the “rain effect”, and some beautiful calligraphy inside jokes hanging from some of the umbrellas too.

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 Measure Ring Size

measure ring size

There are many home methods available to measure ring sizes.  Unfortunately, they aren’t as subtle as stealing one of your lady’s rings or using her sister’s finger as a model.  They are, however, usually pretty accurate.  The best way to measure ring size is obviously with the help of a professional.  Jewelers have metal bands that are the precise size as the actual ring.  Trying the bands on ensures that a ring not only fits snug around the finger, but also can fit over the middle knuckle, which some people don’t take into account when measuring their ring size at home.

Another method of ring sizing is with a printable measuring tape.  This strip of paper fits around the finger and ultimately works like a fabric measuring tape.  Unfortunately, there are many problems with a printable sizer.  For starters, if the printer isn’t set correctly, the sizer could print too small or too large, and the ring size could be off.  Also, the ring size can be dependent on how it’s cut out, or the type of paper it’s printed on.  Always make sure to follow directions exactly as they are listed when using a printable ring sizer.

Last but not least, there’s a method called the string sizer, which involves wrapping a piece of string around the ring finger, cutting the string, and then measuring the string against a printed set of ring sizes.  Theoretically, the string should fit exactly around the ring with the appropriate ring size, however like the printable strip sizer, there can be a few catches.  When using a string sizer, it’s important to make sure the printer is set correctly to ensure the ring chart prints to the proper scale.  When measuring, cut the string exactly where the string overlaps.  If in doubt, cut slightly more than you think (and very slightly, at that).  Rings are always better to be a little oversized rather than to not fit at all!
