Non Traditional Wedding Tip "The Proposal"

It is  Non traditional  Wedding Tip Tuesday here at California Sol Creations! We are sharing  all the fabulous tips, and ideas to inspire an   unforgettable non traditional wedding experience! Or if you just want to add a twist  to your traditional wedding day! Check in with us on Tuesdays for the funkiest  ideas for non traditional wedding planning!

This weeks Tip: " The Proposal"
Don"t be afraid to go beyond the traditional  beach,or the restaurant  proposal. (Not that we don"t love these romantic proposals) but why not surprise your partner with a  proposal  that speaks to who you are, and the  activities you share as a fun-loving couple!

Let these few fun ideas inspire you to a proposal done your way!

The Sports Fan Proposal- Declare your love to the people of the world(or at least a stadium full of people) and POP the BIG question on the BIG screen between innings or quarters at your favorite sporting event! The  "Kiss Me" camera shot makes for a FAN-tastic "Marry Me" proposal!

The Alice in Wonderland Proposal- Take  your fiancee on a whimsical romantic maze that excites and awakens her senses.  Using a few of  her  favorite things from flowers(Smell Me) to the ring (Marry Me) lead her to a fairy tale of a proposal.

The EPIC Mini Movie Proposal - Create an EPIC mini  proposal movie that will have the independent film festival stand up and take notice! Use your technical talents  to POP the BIG question. Avatar will have nothing on you! As  you add your  own special FX using dating photos, favorite vacation photos, green screen antics, graphics and  music!

However  you decide to POP the question, your partner will appreciate your effort  and of course the size of the ring!

Escape from Wedding Planning Mountain

Summer weddings are in full swing! You have been distracted for months with centerpieces, invitations, guest list RSVP’s, cake icing flavors, and planning the perfect wedding day! It is so easy to get lost in a mountain of wedding plans and forget what the BIG DAY is really about. Take a few hours off from wedding planning madness and have a Pre-Wedding Date Break. Here are a few suggestions for some FUN dates.

 Picnic Lunch in the Park
Just BEE! Breath in some fresh air and enjoy nature

A Game of Miniature Golf
Nothing beats stress like taking a club and knocking a ball around!

Go for a Walk on the Beach
Waves, Sand and Moonlight what more needs to be said “Muy Romantico”
A Couples Massage
Get that wedding planning stress rubbed away! AHHHHhhhhhhh

Have a Nintendo Wii Bowling Tournament
A little competition can make for a SPICY evening....

Attend a Sporting Event
Blow off some STEAM yelling for your favorite TEAM! YEAH!

Sing Karaoke 
YES SING!! Remember the endearing but, horrible singing of Cameron Diaz in My Best Friend’s Wedding. You just had to love her for her courage! And the groom fell more in love with his awful singing Bride!

Whatever activity take some time before the wedding day to refocus and reconnect as a couple. Feeling overwhelmed and stress? Contact us for a complimentary consultation! We will be happy to discuss how we can  provide wedding day services to meet your needs. Let us do the work while you enjoy family and friends!

Here's to Wedding Planning with a Twist!

Spider Man inspired Wedding

CSC was so excited to assist hip couple; Omar and Michelle create a nontraditional wedding day in Laguna Beach last weekend. The words used by the couple to describe their wedding day were simple, modern and clean in black, white and lime green.  The Best Man or I should say, "The Best Woman" was the groom’s sister! The engagement photo and awesome cake topper was inspired by the grooms favorite comic book character Spider Man! Instead of cake the couple opted to serve delicious red velvet cupcakes. Lighted ficus trees and candles created a simply romantic atmosphere during cocktail hour and dinner. Later in the evening after the Newlywed game and speeches, lime green up lighting gave Omar and Michelle the chic club atmosphere to get the party started! California Sol Creations, Sol Full of Attention Day of Coordination programs provided a worry free day for  Omar and Michelle, family and friends could dance the night away..

Inspired by Sex And the City 2

I was so excited to catch sneak preview premier midnight show of Sex and the City 2 last Wednesday.  I love the sassy ladies and the view of New York City! I left the theater inspired by the fabulous fashions and the even more fabulous SHOES, but also by the message of LOVE.  I don’t want to give up to much of the movie (for those who didn’t see it yet, what have you been doing? hurry get to the theater!) but the most awesome message was communicated on an anniversary present. 
The words read………..Me and You, Just Us Two.  
 The meaning of those few words and the story line that went along with it (we will talk more when you see the movie) sent the biggest wave of love and romantic chills through me.  It got me to thinking about, relationships, marriage, and especially the wedding day! The wedding day is not about  parents or grandparents, (after all they had their day) not about what happened at the wedding you went to last week, or  even the cake (Well wait… let me think about that one??)  It’s ALL about the ME and YOU, Just Us Two.  A very special and unique TWO, choosing to publicly share with friends and family their commitment to love, honor and cherish each other. No couple is completely similar, so why should your wedding day fit into a one wedding day plan style fits all? Your wedding day should be a fusion of personality and style, a day reflecting the Me and You, Just Us Two! Incorporate his and hers favorite colors, a favorite movie, fairy tale, sports, or other funky theme. Go ahead, DREAM IT! Want to add a twist to the traditional wedding ceremony and reception? PLAN IT! Not sure how to convey your unique wedding day dreams into reality? CONTACT US!  A California Sol Creations Wedding Stylist would be happy to partner with you plan, design and manage an amazing wedding day for JUST YOU TWO!
