Top 5 Valentine’s Day Themed Proposals by The Yes Girls

Valentine’s Day proposals are very common (trust us, we’ve been inundated with inquiries to propose on this very day!) and while most tend to lean towards the ever-so-classic red rose petals and candles, The Yes Girls tend to do things a little differently.  We believe in going big, going personal, and going unique.  So what is our idea of the perfect Valentine’s Day proposal?  Here are 5 of our favorites:

proposing on valentines day

This proposal included an 8 ft heart balloon accented with bursts of flowers and small magnets, and a banner that says “opposites attract” in Korean, since she loves Korean TV shows. If you’re going to do heart-shaped anything, why not make it look as stunning as this one??

proposing on valentines day

Hello, every woman’s dream! This Sexy and the City proposal took place in the stunning Plaza Hotel, and was everything V-day proposals should be made of. SWOON!

proposing on valentines day

One of our most loved proposals last year, this SF rooftop proposal was dreamy in all the right ways.  Marquee letters just don’t get much cuter than this! Not pictures: the ombre petal aisle that gave us all the heart eyes!

proposing on valentines day

Okay, this proposal may have been created especially for Elle Woods.  Pink ombre petal aisle, gorgeous pastel lanterns, and a macaron tower?  YES PLEASE TO ALL OF THAT!

proposing on valentines day

This gorgeous NHL player’s proposal is not yet on the blog, but trust me, it’s a good one! You have to stay tuned to see the gorgeous details from this amazingly romantic proposal. Such a tear jerker!

Make it an Eco-Friendly Lab-Grown Diamond Engagement Ring this Valentine’s Day!

Looking to propose to your valentine with the perfect engagement ring, but don’t want to break the bank? Then do yourself a favor and consider a lab-grown diamond. Lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds- chemically, physically, and optically identical to earth-mined diamonds, yet come free of any environmental abuse and are priced 30-40% less than an equivalent earth-mined diamond. New to lab-grown diamonds? Think of it like this, you can get ice from a glacier or you can create it in your refrigerator, but it’s still ice. The same goes for lab-grown diamonds! It’s just the origin that differs, not the diamond itself.

One of our all-time favorite destinations for stunning lab-grown diamond enagement rings is MiaDonna. They offer so many gorgeous styles, from Antique to Modern to Stackable to Three Stone- they have a style to suit every taste. Here’s a few styled we’ve added to our wishlist…

Traditional Solitaire Engagement Ring

Chorus Three Stone Engagement Ring

Rosemary Engagement Ring

And if you can’t find the perfect ring online, you can design your own with their fabulous custom design department! Not totally comfortable choosing a ring online? Don’t fret! MiaDonna’s offers a super easy (and free) Home Try-On Program whereby you can try four of your favorite ring styles from the comfort of your own home. Pretty amazing, right? This Valentine’s Day, shop MiaDonna for all of your special gifts for your loved one! With so many accessories and rings for everyday wear, you’ll be stuck on what to choose, but the MiaDonna team is available via email or phone to help with any questions you may have. Celebrate well and spread a little ethical and conflict-free love this season!

 

About MiaDonna

 

Based in Portland, Oregon, MiaDonna was founded by single mom and entrepeneur, Anna-Mieke Anderson. Her drive and passion to create positive change and changing the diamond industry for the better led her to launch MiaDonna. This mission was simple – create the most important objective for MiaDonna: to craft afforable, ethical and beautiful fine bridal jewelry brand that would take a foundation-first approach, using profits from every order to help free a child from a lifetime of diamond mining and poverty. It was important to create a company that people would not only feel good about purchasing from, but that would also help in assisting the rebuild of earth-mined diamond communities around the world (and free the innocent, oppressed children who have been involved in the negative effects of the diamond industry).

With that mission, and the goal to always do what she can to help, Anna-Mieke’s making those dreams a reality with MiaDonna’s charity foundation, The Greener Diamond who actively work on projects and initiatives to enact positive change in African countries such as Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Breathtaking Loft Proposal with Bridge Views in New York City

 

Marc and Hannah’s proposal in New York City was all about highlighting future plans (and doing so in a STUNNING way!) We wanted to represent their living room a few years down the road, with three pairs of shoes for their three (future) kids.  Next to the fireplace was a basket with two scrapbooks, one labeled “Where We’ve Been” and highlighting all of their previous memories, and one marked “Where We’re Going” and highlighting their future plans together.  The last page of the “Where We’re Going” scrapbook was a blank page labeled “The Proposal” for the day’s occasion.  Perhaps the best part of the proposal, however, was that their two dogs were a part of the proposal!  One dog wore a “Will You Marry Me?” bandana, while the other wore the ring around her collar.  It’s safe to say that this may just be one of our favorites! Congratulations to Marc and Hannah :)

The Enneagram: What You Need to Know, and How it Will Help Your Relationship!

We all go through rough patches in our relationships, especially when that relationship consists of two people that couldn’t be more opposite.  That’s how my relationship is with my fiance… he’s an extrovert with a go-getter attitude.  He’s the smartest of the smart when it comes to maintaining business relationships on a personal level.  He’s level headed and hardly gets worked up about anything.  Me, on the other hand? I’m a creative spirit with ALL the feelings.  I’m overly sympathetic, excited, frustrated, hungry, etc. at any given moment. You can most often find me crying at Facebook videos of dogs that have had hard lives, but ended up in safe and loving families.  Needless to say, we don’t always see eye-to-eye on how pressing situations should be handled (or reacted to).

The BEST thing we have ever done for our relationship was to take the Enneagram test.  The Enneagram “is a model of the human psyche which is principally understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types.” I heard about the test on one of my favorite podcasts, and wanted to try it out for myself.  My results ended up showing me a window into my personality that I’ve never really had before, and I knew that once my fiance read about why I react to certain situations the way I do, he wouldn’t be so quick to judge (and vice versa).   So what were our results?

I am a Type 6: The Loyalist. My basic desire to to feel security and support from those around me.  I thrive when creating safe, trusting relationships, but can also be very indecisive and cautious when making decisions.

He is a Type 3: The Achiever (to no surprise!)  His basic desire is to feel valuable and worthwhile.  He finds worth in succeeding his goals and being a role model to others.  His downfall is that this can lead him to being a workaholic and constantly competing to prove himself.

We sat down and read through our personality profiles together, and after that evening, things slowly started to shift.  Several instances after, when something happened that would have usually sparked a fight, the conversation ended abruptly with him saying, “We’re not going to fight about something this small.”  On my end, I learned that since he thrives on success, I had to remind him everyday how proud I am of all of his hard work (and his smile is SO worth it!)

So, whether you’re looking to mend a hole in your relationship, or maybe you’re just wanting to learn something new about each other (which we believe couples should ALWAYS be looking to learn something new about their partner regardless of how long you’ve been together), the Enneagram may be the answer that you’re looking for!  If you try the test, let us know how it effects your relationship!
