Engagement Season Prep

Football season, Pumpkin Latte Season, Fall Season but Engagement Season? Is that a thing?? Great question, and Engagement Season is most certainly a reality!! Every year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day there seems to be a rush of proposals. WeddingWire.com estimates that approximately one in three of all engagements take place during this time frame. At Touch of Elegance we want you to be ready to drop to one knee, so we put together a list of some of the most awe inspiring proposals on the net; cause let’s be honest you are going to be telling this story for YEARS.  LET’S MAKE IT FABULOUS!!!!!

1. Over a Cup of Coffee

We love the idea of a surprise attack!! Sip a morning coffee with your loved one and when they finish it off they will be blown away, and most importantly fully alert to answer “YES!!”

2. Between the Pages of Their Favorite Book

We are obsessed with proposals that sneak up on you!! Opening your book to do some reading and finding a beautiful ring is definitely most unexpected. Bonus points for a romantic book or for highlighting letters to spell out “WILL YOU MARRY ME.”

3. A Cute Puppy is Hard to Say No To!

Who could possibly say no to that adorable face?! Using your puppy to help with the proposal is a great way to get the whole gang involved.

4. Photo Booth “I DO”

Getting your proposal on camera is always a plus!! A photo booth is a great way to show the progression of the proposal. Your significant other will not be expecting it!

5. Spell it out with a magical Hot Air Balloon

Have your special someone look to the sky for the big proposal. This engagement idea has such a big wow factor that no one will be able to resist saying YES!!

{Wedding Wednesday} All White

There is nothing more beautiful than a classic white wedding.  The mood it sets is as romantic as it is lighthearted and fun.

We’re all for colors and patterns, but we just can’t help continuously falling in love with an all white palette.

Now, for our brides and planners who are not the biggest fans of going “all white” it can absolutely serve as a base to build off of.  Using mainly white in your wedding (or event), leaves so much room to add the subtelest details and make them stand out so much more.

 

With spring upon us, adding green plants, trees or even vegetables (yep!) attracts your guests’ eyes and doesn’t allow your meaningful details to go unnoticed- which many times, they do!

 

 Don’t be afraid to go with all white bridesmaids. You can always offset with colorful bouquets or colored shoes.  We absolutely love the playful idea of all white bridal parties because it’s so carefree and simple.

Adding small details like custom cocktails to go with the theme, candy and dessert bars and candles are sweet elements to add.  The dim lighting from the candles will add a romantic feel, while the candy bars will create a fun element for your guests.

As always, feel free to contact us with any questions you might have regarding this post or any event.

Happy Wedding Weddnesday!
