About Megan Ellis

My love for all things wedding and romance led me to The Yes Girls in 2015, where I was given the opportunity to share my current "swoons" weekly via The Yes Girls' blog. I'm currently going to school for design, in hopes of combining my passions and helping couples convey their love stories in the perfect way!

USC vs UCLA Proposal on a Boat in Newport Beach, CA

College Rivalry proposal

These two love birds met while at grad school at Yale.  Before Yale, they went to rivaling schools USC and UCLA, yet somehow managed to get along and fall in love :) We wanted to play off of this adorable rivalry by creating a floral arch with the schools’ colors.  Hanging from the arch were ornaments with photos of their favorite memories together.  Last but not least, the entire proposal took place on a stunning boat in Newport Beach, surrounded by friends and family.  We couldn’t be happier for Shaan and Megha! Congratulations :)

Marriage Proposals for Long-Term Relationships

Proposal ideas for a Long Term Relationship

You’ve dated long enough to know her favorite things, what makes her giddy, her deepest dreams, and more. Use those amazing details for her dream proposal. – The Yes Girls

What exactly defines a long-term relationship?  I decided to consult trusty Google for an exact definition, only to find that it’s a highly undefined term with a rabbit hole of forums.  Some would say that after being with the same person for a whole year, they are in a long-term relationship.  Others would say that several years into their relationship, they are just now “long-term”.  Either way, it seems the most common factor in these relationships- regardless of the length of time- is the commitment and in-it-for-the-long-haul attitude that these couples share.

Our clients typically come to us around the 3-5 year mark, as that seems to be the sweet spot for getting engaged.  Around this time, our clients tell us that their girlfriends are ready for a marraige proposal, and are expecting it at any time.  Many couples have looked at rings together, and have already talked about marriage.  One of the most important things we see most often in couples who have been dating awhile- women do have expectations when it comes to their proposal.

If you’re in a long-term relationship, chances are, you know your partner better than anyone else.  You know her personality, her favorite color, what her hobbies are, what her favorite flower is, her favorite song, etc.  The longer you’re in your relationship, the more you’ll learn (and the more you’ll be expected to use that knowledge!)

Our Advice: The amount of time you spend in a relationship should reflect the thought you put into your proposal.

That means taking time to write out the perfect speech (the one that she’ll replay over and over again), including meaningful details like her favorite color and flower, paying tribute to the memories you have made together over the years, and maybe even including her favorite song to set the mood.  We very much believe in courting your partner for life (not just the first year of your relationship) so ask yourself this question:  If I didn’t know that my girlfriend would say yes, what stops would I have to pull out to win her over?  We truly believe that the secret to a thriving relationship is to keep the romance alive and to always treasure and appreciate your partner.  The best part is that you already have the knowledge you need to make her feel special and adored.

So, what to do next?

The Yes Girls specialize in taking your “fun facts” and turning them into a meaningful and cohesive proposal idea.  Whether you are interested in having us coordinate your proposal or just looking for custom ideas, view our packages here, we can send you a quick questionnaire to learn the history of your relationship and the things that your partner goes crazy for.  We’ll use this questionnaire to create two custom ideas including everything that she loves, as well as sentimental memories from your relationship to create a proposal that she’ll rave about forever!

Beachfront “Forks” Proposal in Key West, FL

 

Kunal and Minal first met at an engagement party in 2013.  She was in front of him at the buffet line and dropped her fork (and went back to her seat without one!)  Kunal brought her a fork, and the rest is history! Kunal knew she was the one shortly after! We wanted to play off of the fork theme by having three engraved forks at each table, all with different dates from their relationship.  The first fork represented when they first met, the second fork represented when they started dating, and the third represented when he proposed!  As soon as Minal read the last fork, he got down on one knee (in the prettiest of locations, might we add) and proposed!  Congratulations to these two love birds :)

Grand Flower Backdrop Marriage Proposal At Winery in Sonoma, CA

Vineyard Proposal in Sonoma California

This proposal may tick every box for the dream proposal: A live violinist playing softly in the background- check.  An aisle of rose petals leading to the couple’s initials created out of roses, and surrounded by wild growing floral planters- triple check. A sketch from the couple’s childhood (yes, they have known each other practically their whole lives!)- check.  Oh, and did we mention a DOUGHNUT WALL? We weren’t kidding… this proposal truly was a dream! Arjun’s love for Prabhsimran was truly apparent when he came to us to plan his proposal, and we are so glad that we were able to be a part of such a SWEET ;) moment! Congratulations to the future Malhotras!
