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!

When NOT to Propose

Out of the 365 days in a year, there aren’t many days that you couldn’t propose on.  In fact, you could propose on any of them, however there are a few days we recommend skipping out on.  Some holidays are totally acceptable to pop the question: Fourth of July, Halloween, New Years Eve, or even Cinco de Mayo could be cute if you follow a theme.  Other holidays are a little cheesy: Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and for goodness sake- please don’t propose on April Fools Day (unless you want her thinking the proposal is one big joke.)

Another cliche proposal would be the birthday proposal.  Everyone loves to be the center of attention on their birthday, but since birthday proposals are so common and you will likely have something fun planned anyways, she will likely see it coming.  If you want to propose around the time of her birthday, catch her off guard by surprising her with plans a week early.  The same goes with an anniversary proposal… if you want to make it a complete surprise, we recommend surprising her with plans earlier than your scheduled celebration.  Last but not least, and this is an absolute MUST-NOT; There are no circumstances when it is okay to propose on someone else’s wedding day.

Stunning Lake and Mountain Engagement in Vail, CO

Proposal in Vail, Colorado

Let’s just soak in how stunning this couple and surprise proposal was near Vail, Colorado! Everything from the dreamy boat on the lake to the thoughtful details inspired by how they first met was the perfect recipe for a once in a lifetime proposal.

Robert and LaRona first laid eyes on each other at an intramural basketball game in law school.  This later became LaRona’s excuse to “trash  talk” (flirt) with the cute boy on the opposing team, and the rest is history! We re-created these special moments by bringing in a gym room locker and bench, a bracket with all of their favorite moments leading up the the proposal, and a jersey that says “Marry Me”.  We also had a “Case of Love” book and gavel to represent their law careers.  Paired with the most stunning backdrop, this proposal might just be our favorite to date!  Congratulations Robert and LaRona!

The Yes Girls Tenth Anniversary Party

What a dream! On the evening of our 10th anniversary I was surrounded by my inspiring, hilarious, kind, and oh-so-talented team. What a group to be surrounded by! These ladies make magic happen everyday for couples from Napa Valley to NYC and this moment would not have existed without each one of them.  The Yes Girls dinner party at Rogers Gardens

Our goal this year as a team was centered around the word THRIVE. To Flourish.

Why I started a marriage proposal planning company (which wasn’t a thing that existed back in 2008)? To help relationships thrive from the very start and to continue to flourish throughout their marriage. That is the heartbeat of The Yes Girls. I also wanted my incredible team of women to thrive personally and within TYG.  It seemed a little trite and even cliche to gift a female empowerment book to each of my girls but I did it anyways. Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis is the epitome of thriving. It just fit. However, I find love in the details so each gift was wrapped with plantable floral paper. The handwritten cards were also plantable. I wanted each of them to take those encouraging words, plant them and watch them flourish!

CHEERS TO THOUSANDS OF “SHE SAID YES!”

Seriously the floral wrapping paper and cards might be my new favorite thing! Would be such a cute idea for your next hand written love letter don’t you think?

We celebrated under twinkle lights and a stunning gazebo. We toasted and ate delicious food with our loved ones. It was intimate and perfect. We even had a surprise visit from some of our favorite vendors – thanks Crystal (Studio C Florals) for creating that stunning bouquet and to Jess (Jessica Rice Photography) for capturing this special evening! Seriously, we love you!

To all our clients and vendors we have worked with these last 10 years, we can’t wait to see what happens in the next 10! Cheers to love!
